That’s what I thought over 10 years ago when I came to a crossroads in my life – “I can’t lose weight. I’m too old and this is just how it has to be”. Little did I know! In the 70’s and 80’s, I would try to work out at home. But due to lack of knowledge, no guidance and no mentor, I didn’t know how to do it. I did try diet pills and supplements, weight loss gadgets (that ultimately didn’t work – DUH!), workouts from fitness magazines and books. I did various diets and went to the nearest gym class which was boring and intimidating to me. I also used a few different videos (we’re talking VHS) but again, not knowing how to use them in a “program” I soon gave them up. Then came the time when I was at my highest weight, not feeling very good about myself and feeling depressed and hopeless, I came across the Beachbody Power 90 infomercial. It seemed to possess everything a person needed to get fit and healthy and it looked doable to me. So I purchased it and was very impressed the very first week when my clothes started feeling looser. I didn’t follow the daily P90 nutrition guide that came with the program, but I did start to cut back on some junk foods that I loved! I did follow the workouts to a tee and I think that helped a lot as I had not been working out at all prior to that.
I am not at my ‘ideal weight’ so now when I think “I can’t lose weight” (cos I’m on a plateau for too long or I overate for a couple days in a row), I just tell myself that’s simply not true. I can – I just have to remember that I’ve done it even when I thought I couldn’t and I can do it again.
If this is where you are at, then let me help you. Together we can do this 🙂
