I was a fat kid.
Yup.. I weighed 250 or so when i was 16 and still had it in my head that I was going to be a movie star.
“How many obese movie stars do you know?” asked my brother Bob that summer of 1976 when I had just wolfed down another corn dog at Six Flags.
He was right…
I didn’t know any. John Goodman had yet to do his first ever movie with me (Eddie Macon’s Run).
I decided to lose the weight and get into the best shape of my life. I knew that I was supposed to do something with my life. I knew it. Felt it in my bones… right there under all that fat. So I made a decision… right then and there.
2 months later I had dropped 50 pounds.
Guess I’m one of those people who, when they put their mind to something they really put their mind to it.
I’m telling you this because I just heard that my fitness group, TEAM RIPPED DUKE has collectively lost over 4,000 pounds in the last 2 years.
I feel great about that. Really GREAT!
Imagine the fat kid from school who has been a tiny bit of help to people who are/were in the same boat he was in all those years ago and how he feels.
If you are someone who needs a push to get into better shape… to start taking your health and fitness seriously… I urge you to click on my health and fitness tab over there to the left.
Consider yourself pushed.
The stuff is hard. That’s why it works. The supplements aren’t cheap… but they also aren’t expensive. I don’t consider $4 for a full breakfast expensive. Especially one that gives me more nutrients than I’l ever find in a fast food restaurant.
In the last three years I took 30 pounds off and kept them off with the programs you’l find once you click the tab. I had gained some of my 50 back after I turned 50. Guess I started believing that that was just what “happened” once you got to a certain age.
I don’t believe that any more and neither should you. It’s BS. Pure and simple.
Think of your goal. You ideal weight… size… measurement. I’m here to tell you that it’s attainable. You can do it. It’s not easy… nothing worth having EVER is.
You have a purpose. A reason for being here. It’s important. Only YOU can do it… whatever it is. I believe that you can do it better if you are healthier.
I’m not saying everyone needs to be skinny. No. I’m saying that everyone could stand to be a little bit or a lot of bit healthier than they are right now.
Go ahead… you’re worth it!
