Goal: Manage Weight

Josh Cook

I needed a reset! I was unhappy with my physical appearance, and my physical abilities. For me, my confidence is very much attached to how I look and feel. I was uncomfortable in my own skin. I knew I could get my health and fitness back, I had to! I also wanted the same for my wife Julie and our friend Hal who did the program with me. So we dusted off a fifteen-year-old Body-for-LIFE hardback and got busy! It was different this time! After rereading the book and allowing the inspiring words to motivate my frustration and light fire to my determination, I knew I was going to succeed. From that day forward, my mindset to finish never wavered. I had the blueprint, thanks to the book, so it became a simple mental attitude. I knew that treating the program like a competition would give me the mental edge to push through when things got tough, so I entered the competition online and for twelve weeks I walked into the gym with a chip on my shoulder. Often, just before my workout, I would glance at my “before” picture for added motivation. The biggest inner transformation for me was realizing I could make a decision and remove all mental doubt that I would be true to that decision. There was a calming focus that came with truly making my mind up and committing. I was empowered by this. I employed a simple philosophy based on the guidance from the book: there are things I do, and there are things I don’t do.
