Hard Work Makes the Success Special

I just heard a caller talk about not able to control their eating habits... Currently I am on a journey to lose 190 lbs after 23 years of nothing more than terrible choices! On November 22, 2009, at the age of 23, I decided it was time for me to get in shape, to stop eating myself into oblivion, and get healthy! To date I have lost 130 lbs, competed in numerous running events (warrior dash, neon splash dash, color,) play for a local soccer team, eat completely different, and plan on continuing to lose until I am healthy and happy.

The hardest part of this entire ordeal was deciding to "do the right thing!" They always say that weight loss and fitness is 30% exercise and 70% diet but it is also 100% mental! Losing weight and making life changes are hard and the hard work it takes is something that makes the success special! I am a true believer that the easy way usually is the wrong way!

I have been listening to you since I was a very young guy! Thank you Dr Laura for always helping keep my mental game strong, and encouraging me to do the right thing!
