Weight loss is more about figuring out your
unwanted behaviors rather than numbers on a
scale, chart or treadmill. Figure the whys out
and you will have staying power. Don't and keep
getting more out of shape.
Today obesity, diabetes and heart disease
runs through us at epidemic levels, Why?
The answer lies not in the thousands of
different kinds of diet, weight loss and
workout programs offered, the answer lies
in the approach.
But, no one wants to talk about that. Do you
ever wonder why that is?
Do we not want to know, or could it have
something to do with the doctor’s and those in
the fitness industry not wanting to explain the
best approach to us? Maybe they don’t even know
the right way themselves? Deep down we want and
need too know. Why do I say this? Twenty years
of managinghealth clubs and dealing with
doctor’s tells me, that if they told you this,
then there may be a chance you would not need
them. Sounds crazy doesn’t it. But, true!
“While exercise and eating guidelines are
based on good scientific
principles, they do not go along with human
nature or common sense. Recent
history is telling us this; we are

willing to include
exercise in their daily lives, rather than

Over the years most of us who are out of
shape and want to lose a few pounds and
feel a little better about ourselves,
developed many different behaviors toward
exercise and food. Some are good ones, but most
are just barriers we have built in our minds. I
guess you could also chalk it up to pure

continue down the path of destruction until
someone comes up with a plan to help people

the only thing it will take is introspection.
But, do we want to hear that? Maybe, that is
just too painful to even think about right
Do you mean I will have to take a good long
look at myself? Maybe so. At the end of the
day, you are going to have to ask yourself, “Do
I deal with it now or do I deal with the
consequences later? Because that’s really want

today, or face the reality on life’s terms down
the road in a hospital bed.
I chose to deal with it now.
So where is the magic? It’s not in the pills
or programs being fed to us today and it’s also
not found so much in the numbers on an exercise
chart, the amount of weight you lift, or the
miles on a treadmill.
Our success lies in:
- How willing we are to deal with the
