I was always told that if I did my best, and stuck to it, then I would achieve success.
For me, this never worked out like it was supposed to.
I wanted to lose weight, I really did, and I tried my best, but I never got any results. I was not afraid of hard work or exercise, they just never gave me the results I wanted. For a while I got frustrated and quit entirely, at which point I really started packing on the pounds. What I needed was professional help, and eventually I found a personal trainer that was able to make a difference. My exercise routine was always done willy-nilly, based on whatever I felt like doing or what machines were open when I visited the gym. Now I am reaping the benefits of an actual workout program, one that was designed and customized for me specifically. One size does not fit all, especially when everyone is a different size, and my personal trainer found the path that seemed to be best for me. The personal trainer was right, and within a few weeks I am seeing better results than I did in years of doing it myself. I had the drive and motivation, and now the personal trainer is giving me the guidance and wisdom to apply my energy the right way. I don’t know if you have a personal trainer or not, but I highly encourage you to seek out a customized workout program. You will get better results, and spend a lot less time in the gym.
