If you get nothing else out of what you read here, it is critical that you realize that you are the average of the 5 people you hang around with the most. Choose the people you hang around wisely and make sure they are good positive influences in your life. Work on self-improvement!! People say “I was born that way” or “I can’t change” or “I don’t deserve success”. All of that is a lie that you see for what it is and then take action in your life to make sure you become the person you want to be. It won’t happen by accident. If you want to make something of yourself and your life, YOU have to be the driving influence in that. Don’t let little bumps in the road derail you. If you fall off the wagon, get up and dust yourself off, and get back on it. If you are overweight and get out of shape, you have to understand that you didn’t get there overnight. You didn’t just wake up one day and get that way. It is going to take time and effort to change your life and if you want it to change, then one of the first things you have to change is your mental attitude and realize that YOU DO DESERVE IT!! It is going to take time and hard work and if you are ready, I’m ready to help you. But, you have to have the desire, passion and hear. The rest is easy. Change the way you think and your body will change to match it.

I grew up on a farm where my Mother cooked 3 meals a day. It was no problem with a fast metabolism working all the time, but I was still a “big boned” “husky” kid. I stayed that way until High School where I lost some weight and got into better shape playing sports. I graduated from The Citadel, a military college and was in pretty good shape when I graduated. I then entered the working world with client lunches and hanging out with friends. I kept putting on weight, and then dieting, and then putting on weight and dieting. I never had time, or frankly, the money to go to a gym. I knew it would be a waste of time and money to do that, but I also didn’t believe in the home exercise fitness programs.
Being 41, and after 18 years of life away from College, 3 kids (11, 9, 6, and one on the way) and a wife who is the love of my life and who cooks great, I put on more weight than I could stand. I was miserable but “I carried it well”. I went through the low carb diets, the no carb diets, the fruit diets, the movie star diets, but, the weight always came back on because I wasn’t complimenting my diet with resistance and cardio training. I would run some occasionally, but never anything too intense and it wouldn’t last long. I was living a “regular” life. I had put on a lot of extra weight, especially around the midsection where the heart and internal organs have to work so hard, causing them extra stress. I had pretty much given up and thought I’d just be this way the rest of my life. I thought I was destined to be an overweight, balding, middle-aged average “Dad” like so many other men out there. That was “normal”, after all. Then, one morning, I happened to stumble across the P90X infomercial. I didn’t order it right away, but thought about it alot. In fact, I couldn’t get it off my mind. I checked it out online, saw it had a money back guarantee, checked out the company, and decided, why not. My loving wife saw it with me and said “You won’t do it”. I figured this might be my last hope. Well, it was, and it’s the only hope I needed. I knew after the first week that this was the real deal. I am jazzed and stoked and can’t imagine what life will be like from here on because this isn’t a fluke or a one time thing, but a lifestyle change for me. Thank you MDB and Beachbody!! Not only is my body and physical appearance changing, but my energy level to play with the kids, my mental state of mind, and the way I see the world has, and is continuing to change for the better. Thanks!!!
