Over the years, I have tried, and failed, at virtually all attempts to improve my overall health. With this program of medical monitoring, genuine healthy eating habits, and importance of physical training, I have found a balanced approach I can incorporate into my lifestyle.
Although I have only been in the program for a couple months, I feel better and stronger at 50, than I did when I was 40. I can honestly say this is due to two foundational perspectives.
First, I must be realistic regarding my expectations. I have strong memories of how I looked and felt at 20 years old, but must accept I am at a different stage in my life. I need to give myself credit for success, regardless of how small it may be.
Second, it took years of stressful work and unhealthy habits to produce my current condition. Therefore, I must expect this physical improvement to be a work in process for years to come. For me, it is a journey, not a quick fix.
The bottom line is this, at my age and condition, I realize I will feel better or worse, but I will not stay the same. I choose to feel better; for myself, for my family, and my friends. This program has given me the tools to achieve this.
