There is #noexcuse. The following is 100% true story from David Moore, Executive Director Mental Health Services Inspira Health....who was 456lbs. -I weighed 465 pound
-I was taking blood pressure and cholesterol reducing medicine.
-I was experience ankle and knee aches.
-I had to record my out of office greeting three times due to audible wheezing at rest.
-I knew that I was on a short and scary path without change.
I HAD HAD ENOUGH. Here's how I changed my life: -On July 1, 2016 I walked around 2 blocks in my neighborhood.
-2 blocks turned into 4 blocks.
-I started to go on weekend hikes around ponds or in the mountains.
-I started to jog at a slow sustainable pace
-I #committed myself to 10 hours of physical activity per week.
-After a year I was jogging 5 miles.
-Last summer I added sit ups and upper body exercises using resistant bands. -I stopped weighing myself and really began enjoying my physical fitness activities.
-Last month I ran back to back 10 mile runs. -I now wake up at 4 AM eager to do my 2 hour work out.
-I have more #energy and I actually like to shop for clothes.
-I do not have to take any medications. -I have no wheezing, no joint pain. -My blood pressure and cholesterol is normal. -Flying coach is now a joy, the seat belt fits and people are happy to sit next to me.
-My family, friends and colleagues have been beyond #supportive of my efforts. -I naturally increase my physical activity time in response to a big night out. -I am truly and permanently in #control of my weight and #fitness. -
-My #energy and #effectiveness #improved in every aspect of #mylife. "I am #blessed! The one #simple change that has resulted in my transformation is realization that regular physical #activity is essential to #optimize one’s physical and mental performance, which is key to self-actualization."
