2002 Hawaii Trip
My name is Angel. I recently finished my 90 days on July 1st. I feel so much stronger, healthier, happier and sexier (yes, I said sexier) because of it!
Self image is a really important thing and around the time that I was sitting on my couch at 3am (for what reason I do not know! ) I was not really feeling too good about myself. I was always tired and unmotivated. I felt like a zombie due to the long work hours sitting on my butt in front of a computer and I just got into the habit of going home after work, over indulging in everything that tasted good and then I'd just go to sleep and couldn't wake up in the morning. I didn't like the way I felt and I didn't like the way I looked without my clothes on (too much information?). I remembered that I must have had a nice body under all that squishy (my cute word for fat) somewhere but I didn't know where I put it. I was becoming ashamed to let my boyfriend see me walking around in my unmentionables. Lights out! If ya know what I mean. I could hide it pretty well in clothes but I just wasn't comfortable in my own skin. I wouldn't be caught dead in a pair of shorts.
I basically got tired of faking it and sucking it in. Every few months I'd get motivated and try to fix myself. I'd try to eat healthier and not as much and I'd go to yoga 3 nights a week and take brisk walks. While I really enjoyed doing that, I also found that yoga got really expensive and there wasn't always time in the day to drive to my favorite walking place. Excuses they may be, but I found it hard to keep it going for very long. I also didn't see the results that I wanted quick enough so I'd get discouraged and somehow one meal / cocktail would lead to another, I'd always blow it and get lazy again and I'd stop cold turkey. I did this for years. I let my clothes-less self image stop me from enjoying so many of the things in life that I wanted to be a part of. Basically, anything that required a bathing suit or shorts. That's a hard thing to confess to anyone.
Well, I guess I was up at 3am for a reason that lonely night back in March, cause I saw your infomercial for P90. I NEVER buy anything from infomercials, but it really just seemed so honest and straightforward and made total sense! I was moved and so excited about it. I was like in shock over it or something! There were no false promises or gimmicks. How could something that seemed so right and basic be wrong???So I ordered. I tell you, I honestly think it's the best thing I've ever done for MYSELF.
When I found out about your website and all the message boards it was like a total bonus! I wasn't even expecting anything like that! I was totally hooked. I joined a thread and met so many encouraging, wonderful people and it felt like all our shame about our bodies went out the window. Having that sort of support from people that are doing the same workouts and dealing with a lot of the same issues was really very humbling and kinda therapeutic in a way. It made me strong enough to say "I can do this".
Having that 90 day goal really helped me because it gave me the tool of positive visualization (In 90 days I'm going to look and feel sooo much better). I just remembered that and trusted in the program and in Tony H. He designed the perfect workout combo to help people get results and stay strong enough to see it through. For the first time almost ever I was motivated to get involved in my life again. I didn't miss any of my workouts and I just followed all of Tony's advice and listened to my body. This program is the best program ever because it's convenient, you don't have to leave the house if you don't wanna. Who cares what you look like while you're sweating away! It's cost effective because you buy it once and you get a personal trainer for the rest of your life! You gain knowledge about how to eat right and take care of your body. You're encouraged to go out and get involved in other activities and try out your new bod! It's set up so you can't fail. And all you have to do is push play. . . I'm amazed and overjoyed,and you've now turned me into a walking infomercial.
Thanks you BB! ! ! !
Sincerely, for helping me and so many other people regain confidence in their self image and for teaching us how to keep our heads up (even when we're wearing our unmentionables ;)
