I don't know but at some point in our childhood it does. If we are different some kids make fun. If we are heavy then we struggle or skip PE class and sports.
At some point as an early adolescence we start to care. We start to either exercise or focus on sports because we want to look better.
As a kid it is relatively easy to stay thin or at least fit in.
Or just not care.
Then we become adults and the same cycle happens again...and again.... again.
We gain and lose the freshman 15. We get a new job. We have kids. We move. We struggle. Weight goes on and weight comes off.
At some point we simply give up and determine that we will never have the body we always wanted. That ripped and toned body that we thought we'd get someday when you got settled down or stopped having kids is just never going to come.
We have bad genetics or thyroid issues or allergies or stress or....insert any one of a million excuses here.
It's a bunch or crap.
At any point in your life YOU have the power to determine what you are going to look like. You can have the body of your dreams and you will.
The first thing you need to do is to learn how to dream again....
STEP #1: Dream.
How can you fulfill your dream if you don't have a dream? How can you go anywhere if you don't know where that is? You need to realistically determine what your dream body is. Will you ever look like a super model? Is that what you want? Do you find that attractive? Well then do for it!
Do you want HUGE muscles? Then go for it!
The point is that there literally is no limit to what you can have and what you can be. How big is your goal? Just remember that the bigger change that you want to make the bigger the effort is going to be to get there.
I may get in trouble for saying this but I 100% believe this is true: You can have any body that you want. You just need to realize that the effort it is going to take is going to require you to stretch. Are you willing to do what it takes? Are you....
STEP #2: Be willing to put in the effort.
Did you notice that I have listed 2 steps and neither one has anything to do with measurable able action yet? There are decisions. You must decide to act before you act.
Not to many words needed here. You must be willing. Now you are ready to....
STEP #3: Define your now and articulate your later
How much do you weight? How much do you want to weight? What is your body fat? What do you want your body fat to be? What are your measurements? What do you want them to be? How fast is your 5k? What do you want it to be?
Take very unflattering pictures of your self. Post them next to picture of you when you were younger of next to a magazine cutout. Place your goals in words and pictures in a place where you are going to see them each and everyday...3-4 times each and everyday AT A MINIMUM!
Now you need to lay out a game plan....
STEP #4: Set up a plan of action
With this step I would seek out help. You can research on the internet all day long but that isn't going to take the place of a real live accountability coach.
My suggestion for a coach is someone that either looks like you want to look or is also on the journey and WAS where you are.
What ever your plan is put it in place and GET INTO ACTION...
STEP #5: Get into action!
What does action look like?
It's different for everybody. Once you get your mentality dialed in then it is time to get your body balanced and nourished and moving. You need to do your daily method of operations. Each and every day you...
FOCUS on your goals and STAY POSITIVE.
NOURISH and BALANCE your body with the foods you eat and SUPPLEMENTS you take.
MOVE your body FUNCTIONALLY and with INTENSITY.
There you have it. This plan will work every time if you are willing to work the plan.
If you need help with the process we would be glad to help with your journey.
