Lisa: They are the only ones that can make a difference

The mood I’m in, maybe I shouldn’t even be writing this right now, but here it goes. Since I was ten years old I have been taking care of those around me, it is part of who I am and what helps to define me as a person. I like being able to make a difference in someones life. It’s a very rewarding feeling.

The gym has always been my special sanctuary, now that I have my own gym it is something beyond that, something so embedded in my heart that I can’t even explain. A friend once told me that my mission in life is to change lives, and that I have changed the lives of the women in my gym to a degree that I could never begin to measure…..I hope some of that statement is true. Women go through so much in their lives, they need to know someone is there, that someone cares.

That being said, the contestants are doing well and making gains. They could be doing better….they need to realize that they are still allowing things to control their lives and their eating habits, they are the only ones that can make the difference and not justify things with excuses. It has to be for them and their future. The range in effort in my opinion, goes from 75% to 97%, one woman is obviously standing out. They talk about the end of the contest, not realizing this is just the beginning……..

    Wow, Lisa! You hit it on the head. Yogi Berra is famous for his slightly our of whack statements, my favorite being, “If you don’t know where you’re going, you might end up somewhere else.” Second to that is, “Baseball is 90% mental, and the other half is physical.” I think both apply here. Getting healthy is 90% mental. The other “half” is the part where you actually act on what the mental part tells you to do. And, if you don’t know what this path is (a LIFESTYLE,) you probably will end up somewhere else.

    In my case, your friend’s statement is absolutely true. I probably could have lost this weight without F2F, but certainly not as easily or with as much fun. Wednesday is 8 months since my first class at F2F. I can’t believe how quickly the time has gone. I wish everyone could just get a handle on the concept that this is not for a month, 6 months, a year. It has to be forever. And it is not a punishment. It just is.
