There's no magic pill. There's no magic formula. There's just you and how much you want to be dedicated to being healthy. For a long time, I believed I was "hiding it well," "not too heavy," etc. I also thought nothing and no one could help me change my health. All I did was admit I needed help. Admit I wasn't capable of doing it on my own. And realized, ultimately, that I was addicted to food.
So, one day at a time, I began to make changes. First, by going to K-Fit. I told Kenji I was afraid to make these changes in my life because I did not think it was possible for me to be saved from my unhealthy lifestyle. We began to train. Kenji told me to start and not worry about how many reps I could do but make sure I did them right. I could not jump rope. I could barely step over a bench. I couldn't do sit ups or push ups, or any of the stuff I do now on a regular basis. But I persisted. And consistency is the currency of life change.
If I can make steps towards a healthier life, so can you. Just take it one step, one rep, one meal, or one day at a time.
