Weight Loss Problems - Or is it a Self Image Problem?
Some of you will not like what I have to say, even though it is the truth. And that may be where the problem of American's health problems lies. No one wants to give you the truth. My responsibility as a high profile fitness expert lies not in if you like me, or even if you buy my e books. My responsibility lies in giving you straight talk with no sugar coating it.
You want quick fixes to your health problem that has taken years to develop. You get it by purchasing gimmicks that promise you fast results. You fall for it, and at the end of the day you are more frustrated than every. Why? Because you are denying the root of your problem. Do you have a weight problem of a self image problem? What ever it is you need to get to the bottom of it. Where down the line did you develop the idea that you do not deserve to feel better and look good? How in your life said, "You are not worthy of good health? And when did you by into the notion that someone had a right to take your self esteem away from you. No one has that right, but you do have that choice.
Americas have more of an approach to weight loss and fitness problem rather than a numbers problem. Your weight problems come down to how you fell about yourself. Don't blame it on this product failing or that person not allowing you to succeed, or even there is no time. None sense!
I have counseled thousands of people over my twenty year tender as a personal trainer, health club consultant and best selling author. And in all my travels, the answers to people's problems with weight come down to one thing: how you feel about yourself.
My approach with people is, either you pay a price now or you will pay a bigger price down the road. I am really tired of dancing around and trying to pat people on the back and say, "It's OK you can do it." When all the while, most I know are in the least bit serious about their health, and have no idea what they are in for down the road.
If you are on the fence of whether or not to start an exercise and weight loss plan, I suggest you either become hot or cold. None of this luke warm stuff. You, America is on the verge of a health crisis. The longer you wait the more of chance you have of having a disease.

The A Factor - The Secret to keeping your weight loss program going!
Twenty years ago, I did not aspect toaccomplish what I have in the fitness world. And Isurely didn't dream about writing best sellingbooks. However, two things I did know; first byexercising and eating better allowed me to beinvolved in something much greater than me. Andsecond, I was not afraid to ask for help and support.
We live in a world filled with pride, denial andlaziness. It's just that simple. Your success inweight loss, sports conditioning or generalfitness comes down to one simple thing, asking forhelp.
Our country use to be goal oriented. People use totake pride (good pride) in the fact that they werein a process of accomplishing something. Today,most want something for nothing. If that were notthe case, America would not be the fattest nation onearth and getting larger every day.
Very soon each one of you will either choose or beforced to take some personal responsibility inyour health and fitness levels. Forced? Yes! Thetruth is, the way things look, each one of you willeither face the music on your terms or some life changing circumstance is going to come your way that will force you to take a good long look at your health. Scare tactic, you bet cha!
So what do you do? You, get a medical check up ifnecessary and just start moving.
With all the fitness and diet programs out there,you would think people in our country would begetting in better shape. We're not. Why? All of usare confused, frustrated and burdened down at thecontradictory of medicine and fitness for onereason, and the other reasons involve issues wehave already discussed. The key in motivating yourself to exercise is to keep your eye on the big picture. If you don't, the details will become a quicksand pit. The big picture is:
JUST MOVE IT!
So much money and time is spent on gimmicks anddiet fads that only get used for a short time,with little or no results.
The big picture is about being realistic, not tohave high expectations, but to focus on internalhealth issues, such as blood pressure, body fat,cholesterol levels and a quiet mind. Thechallenge is that you have grown accustomed tobeing motivated by instant gratification. It ismore of a priority to look good rather than tohave lower stress levels.
You get frustrated because you are trying to fighta battle you can't win with something fast andeasy. It's called aging. You blame aging on otherthings in hopes there is something out there thatyou can do or take that will get you the resultsyou want in the shortest amount of time. The truthis while good looks are a good measurement; theyare only perks in the big picture?
THERE ARE NO MAGIC FORMULAS!
