Happy New Year everyone and it’s time to get out of the sugar-induced holiday fog and get back to reality! This month, a few of our clients will guest blog. Today’s blogger is Robin Schaefer who lost 54 pounds since she started training with Double Eagle Fitness. For those of you who think you can’t lose weight read what went through Robin’s mind before meeting us…
BEFORE: 238 pounds in June 2011
I’m about to meet two healthy, in shape, and totally buff personal trainers! What am I thinking?
I’m about to tell them I want to lose 90 lbs (that’s an understatement). I’m a sugar addict. I’ve been fat my entire life.
I can’t do it……..
As I pull up in front of their office I see a man standing outside. I recognize him….
OMG! He’s seen me. No turning back. I’m shaking I’m so nervous. My daughter is with me. Not sure I could have done this without her. I can’t come across scared to top it all off. They’ll think I’m a total basket case.
Ok, shake it off! What’s the worst thing that can happen? Oh, that’s right! They will ridicule me for overeating, for not exercising, and for being morbidly obese. All my fears realized, I’ll succumb to the embarrassment, humiliation and have to tuck my tail between my legs and run. Moving faster than ever. Never to face them again.
Robin put on a 54 pound backpack to make sure she will NEVER gain it back!
Or I can stay. I can choose to face the truth that is my life. Admit that I’m miserable, uncomfortable, and desperately seeking weight loss help. What do I have to lose? Nothing but this excess weight and the embarrassment of knowing that I let myself get this way. It can only get better. It can’t get any worse.
