So many people are in denial about their true state of health. We seem to live in a society now where we are so careful and politically correct, we don't want to upset anyone. I am not saying this is a bad thing but I think we are swinging so far the other way that we are being careful at the risk of denial.
I don't write this to piss anyone off, and I certainly know what it is like to be in denial. I had a lot of well meaning people around me that didn't tell me how it was. Thank the Goddess I worked it out and got my act together. I am not just talking about my weight loss journey here but my whole personal journey. I have battled many demons but that's another story for another time.
Anyway, I am all for people being comfortable in their own skin, more power to you, but when someone comes to me and wants to lose weight/get fitter but is in total denial about how that is going to happen, well I get a little concerned. Personal trainers are not God...there I said it. This might come as a shock to some of you but it's true. 😉 We are trained professionals and have all the tools to help you reach your fitness goals but we cannot walk that road for you. Think of us like a car that provides you with the means to get to your destination. We will stay with you the whole journey but you have to put in the correct fuel and keep up the ideal speed to get to your goal place in the time frame of your choice.
Nothing excites me more than a client who is excited to be training, gets in, works hard does all the right things at home and then messages me to say "YAY - Guess what?". Seriously, it is a proud PT moment when this happens. I know what it takes to get there, so I know how hard this person has worked. And yes, it is so worth it 🙂
If you are quite happy with your life the way it is then be happy, own it, don't worry about what others think or say, but if you are not then it's time to get real! Take an honest look at what you want, and then take the steps to get it. Get real with yourself and you will get real results.
