Sometimes we get overwhelmed by the number of pounds that we want to lose or how far we feel we are from our fitness goals. I know in the past this has caused me to stay stuck. Please know that even small changes can make a big difference. I firmly believe that these small changes are the most important piece of the puzzle for permanent change. Fad diets help people lose weight but then they gain it back again – many times with even more weight than before.
JH is one of my fitness challenge members. He also happens to be my son. He is on a journey to lose around 100 pounds. He originally planned to do the Les Mills Pump workout, but life got in the way and he had to move out of the home he was renting and rent a room from a friend. Because of this he doesn’t have the space to do that particular workout. But he didn’t let that stop him! Here is his story in his own words,
“I have been stuck for about three weeks feeling like I was getting enough exercise. Yet not losing any weight. So this week I started walking a few miles every day and on top of that I’m walking to work. So far 3 pounds gone. And! I finally passed my miniature goal.. This is officially 2 pounds lighter than I’ve been at any point in the last 3 years. Lost 25 pounds since December and more to come point is don’t lose hope just try switching up your normal routine. Good luck.”
Another challenge member, JM let me know that she has made changes in her life over the last month – eating regularly and walking. She was able to fit into jeans that she hasn’t been able to wear in 3 years! She says
“Have not felt this healthy in a couple years, and am seeing awesome results in a short time-Thanks for motivating me!!”
