I received an email from my good friend, Mike Robertson, about IFAST’s Bootcamp and how it would be a great fit for me. I had been “thinking” about getting healthy for a long time, but had a million excuses why I couldn’t. I was either too busy with work, too tired, too busy on the weekends, too busy with my family, and I even tried to convince myself that I was happy with the way I was.
I read Mike’s email at least a thousand times wondering how I would tell him bootcamp wasn’t for me. I had no logical excuse and the fact that IFAST is only 7 minutes away from my house meant I REALLY had no excuse.
What did I have to lose (besides pounds)? Nothing! I emailed him back and told him I was ready for what IFAST had to offer. The following Saturday, I went to Learn to Burn [our FREE intro class for Bootcamp].
I had needed to focus on my health for such a long time, but I ignored the reality! I was horribly out of shape, overweight, and terrified of failure.
To be honest, I think that is why I never really tried to be healthy before. I certainly didn’t talk about dieting or any of my half-hearted attempts. I didn’t want to be that person that we all know – the one constantly complaining about their weight, constantly on a diet, and constantly not making any progress.
As of now, I have been consistently going to bootcamp three times a week for 17 weeks. It definitely has paid off. I have lost approximately 40 pounds!
I still have quite a bit of work to do, but am excited about my progress so far. I just needed to try it and I told myself to take it one day at a time. Seventeen weeks later, I’m still taking it one day at a time.
I realize healthy living is a lifestyle change. I can honestly say that I am 100% committed to making a change. The most awesome thing about all of this is that I could not have done this without the outreach from Mike, and the awesome, supportive environment provided by Dan Brown (our Bootcamp coach). His coaching style works so well for me!
I know that he will push me out of my comfort zone, without having unrealistic expectations. His knowledge and experience are incredible. He leads by example and I am incredibly thankful to Mike, Dan, and IFAST.
I can’t wait until the day I hit my final goal. No more excuses! Thank you!
