I don't think there's anyone who would say that they didn't want to be healthier, but not everyone who would say that will do anything about it. It takes guts (ha!) to get that ball rolling (haha!), to put yourself in a position where failure is likely due to how difficult it is to keep going on such a personal and sometimes lonely road. Creating a healthy lifestyle takes support and encouragement. Without a deep rooted personal goal, a dedication to the cause that will drive you it's hard to get very far. It's a serious psychological journey where it often feels like your honest, hard efforts aren't paying off at least not as quickly as you'd like, so why continue? The motivation has to come from somewhere and when you struggle to find it within yourself it helps to see other people who have had the success you want.
My oldest brother, Scott started his journey this past summer and has seriously blown my mind with how far he's come. He's working incredibly hard and it's showing! He's lost 1/3 of his body weight.
It all began when he decided to go for a walk...
Good old diet and exercise!
