Hey guys, just wanted to say congratulations to everyone for accepting this challenge. Getting in shape and staying in shape is very difficult. especially with the rigors of day to day life. I too am a trainer(part time job) and I deal with lots of men and women that have different goals. I have been reading a lot of your comments and have noticed a lot of you are hitting that wall. Not seeing the results you expect to see. That is the tough part, so many people work out for a few months and then quit because they are not seeing this lean, mean muscled up machine. Remember that weight comes off fast in the beginning and then slows after a while. One thing I have used with people is to have them take a picture of them selves in front of a mirror, preferbly in the beginning of there workouts. and then continue to take pictures of themselves every 30 days. Even though your eyes are not seeing the results, once you compare the pictures. You will be surprised at how much different you look compared to when you started. Remember, pictures never lie. Like many of you have said, working out should be a lifestyle. Something you do everyday. Everyone of us has an hour a day that we can dedicate to working out. My schedule is crazy and I always make time for excercise. I would be more than happy to help any of you out with your workouts, diet or anything else. Just hit me up and I can help. For everyone, keep your goals in sight and push yourself. You'll be amazed at what you can accomplish.
