I gotta give a shout out to Matt Garwood, a friend and fellow Beachbody lover who has a pretty awesome blog up that can be found here – [http://anysizefitness.com] Matt, much like myself undertook the journey of changing his life around through the power of P90x. Check out his story and pictures here – [http://anysizefitness.com/testimonials/matts-story/]
It is one thing to be a few pounds over weight, but when you break the barriers and go to 260lbs, 300lbs and even beyond (like my eventual starting weight of 440lbs) you really have to dig deep down inside of yourself and pull forth some tremdenous strength to acknowledge that you not only need the change but have to be ready to actually commit to it and succeed.
So many people fall off of a diet within a few days, maybe even a few weeks, and these are people that barely have anything to lose. (Any weight loss is good weight lose, so bare with me when I say “barely”) But when you NEED to move 50lbs or 100lbs or 200lbs, it can feel like a never ending struggle. Once the results start rolling in its easier to keep with it but you are fighting your body every step of the way, fighting every bad habit you’ve built over the years, pushing through workouts that leave your body sore for days and doing things you never thought you were capable of doing.
Sometimes a little word or a piece of advice can carry you through challenges you never believed you were capable of doing, I have the honor of being mentioned on Matt’s wall “BiGZ Wisdom” which will grow with more inspiring quotes throughout the years, so keep an eye on that page for updates!
If there is one thing I can say about the long journey I have had it’s when you dare to change your life the rewards are infinate.
