(a.k.a. Mark The Tremor Trainer)
When I was around 30lbs overweight in my mid-30s, I hated how my stomach looked.
I lacked energy, felt down in the dumps about my body, and knew that the road I was on was without fail taking me to high blood pressure, diabetes and/or heart disease if something didn’t change.
I wore baggy clothes to hide my flabby stomach, and through sheer laziness I also tried to cut corners by using weight loss supplements and gadgets that didn’t work.
At that time I wasn’t yet ready for real change.
As I looked in the mirror one morning while getting dressed, I asked my girlfriend at the time if she thought I was getting fat.
In her kindest softest voice she said, “I’ve dated fat guys before.”
That’s a hell of a wake-up call!
She wasn’t trying to hurt my feelings, but she wanted to tell me the truth.
I appreciated her telling me the truth.
I needed to hear the truth!
That belly had to go!
I changed my mindset and took action!
I had a choice to make. I could either continue on the road that I was on, or choose a different path.
I chose a different path.
I became so passionate about my new lifestyle that I became a fully certified personal trainer and sports nutritionist, because I wanted people who struggle with their weight to achieve what I did.
If you are overweight, you too can choose a different path.
