Once again it’s that time for you to hear about someone in the BWFit family, a real person going through this stuff.
So over to Jim.
Jim was diagnosed as having Type 2 diabetes and decided he didn’t want that, he needed to make a change.
He was overweight and didn’t want to lose the use of his feet or lose his eyesight. Having young grandchildren, he knew he had to change to keep up with them.
The things he has learned whilst on his journey is that after spending years at corporate lunches and drinking and eating loads changing his lifestyle was going to be hard.
He needed to really tap into his will power to do it.
He did it, he still is doing it and he knows he can’t just do one or either training or eating, it has to be both at all times, they are both sides of this health coin.
Jim realises that he still needs to work on it every day, he needs to keep focus on what he is doing, it is part of his lifestyle but he knows it’s not completely automatic yet. He needs to keep the portion sizes down, he needs to keep a close eye on his snacking, he knows he can only do this by focusing on it every day.
A trick he uses to help him focus is to keep a log of it and track it, for him it has become second nature to do this, but it wasn’t easy to start with.
He loves the Kettlebell swings, throwing that lump around just makes him happy, also he loves a bit of boxing, whether it’s the fact he gets to hit me I don’t know but that may come into it, but he realises that it is such a good stress reliever, especially when you have a high pressured job, sometimes you just have to take it out on something or you end up bottling it up and it taking over.
Not a big fan of the get down get ups, very easy exercise but bloody hell it’s hard after a few.
One thing he would like to say to you all out there is, keep away from the fad diets, change your lifestyle to lose your weight, that is what got you there in the first place, that feeling of moving from XL clothes to a M is amazing.
Jims worked bloody hard at changing his life around and will continue to do so. He changed around 6+ years of abuse and is reaping the benefits.
See it’s not just ladies I train 🙂
