A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words

A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words

17-Day Diet

These two pictures of me were taken about six months apart. The picture on the left was taken in August of last year, I weighed about 210 pounds. The one on the right was taken this February, at my current weight of around 170. These pictures are proof that we all face challenges with weight gain, and that we all need some help to stay on the right track.

Until I looked at these pictures next to each other it never really hit me where I was just a few months ago. It reminds me how easy it can be to get off course, and that we often develop bad habits without even realizing it’s happening. Before you know it 10 pounds can turn into 20, then 50, then 100. It can happen to anyone.

The pictures are also a reminder of how much progress I made during that six-month period. The takeaway for me is that it’s important to be mindful of those struggles, to follow the program and avoid those bad habits. One of the best ways to do that is to rely on each other for help.  We’re all working toward the same goals and facing the same challenges along the way.  We need to look to each other when things get tough. We all struggle at times – even me, as the picture on the left proves – and there’s no reason to face those struggles alone.  We have each other for support.

Support One Another

If you’re stuck in a rut or feel like you’re facing an uphill battle just remember that it happens to everyone at one time or another, and that you’ve got a support network that understands what you’re going through. Start with Cycle One and stay active! One of the great benefits of the program is that it gives you a plan to follow that will help you stay on track, to avoid those bad habits that can creep up so easily and to help you make long-lasting positive changes. Follow the program – it works.
