Tell us about yourself …
I’m the type of personality that I’m very competitive. I’m focused on whatever that one thing is. And if it’s work, I sit down for eight hours and I can literally sit there predominantly all day and never move and food comes to me and I eat it.
What was the problem?
It was a lack of activity outside of — that was prompting me and I was obviously putting on weight and I didn’t want that lifestyle. I wanted to — I was an older dad and I want to be involved with the kids and be able to participate as well as I could with ‘em.
What did you want?
I’ve been in a gym, I’ve lifted weights and stuff, but I wasn’t sure that I was doing it the correct way and so I definitely wanted to have a trainer to show me how; the proper ways. What I liked about it was that nutritional aspect. The selling point was, was that y’all came to my door. I didn’t have to go. Because obviously with a gym membership, you know I’ve had ‘em in the past and I didn’t have one as I came to y’all, but I’ve had ‘em in the past and one thing was, is by 5 o’ clock, I can talk myself out of working out and if someone shows up to my door, you can’t not answer it, right?
Have any surprises?
It’s kinda — it’s funny because I figured I would’ve been matched up with a trainer, but I got matched up with her. And I think it kinda eased it, but at the same time I mean she’s, she’s probably your most aggressive trainer.
What did you lose and learn?
Twenty, twenty-five; somewhere in that range. Though I may not adhere to the whole principles yet, I under — I have a good basis of what I’m supposed to do. I still need to work out every day. I still need to account for my food. For every bad meal I, you gotta match it with a good one. You gotta, if you don’t work out, you gotta work out the next day you know what I mean. You gotta stay on point.
For others considering?
The thing that I’ve always appreciated about y’all is it’s not only just those two people. I mean it’s been all of y’all, right? Encouraging emails and maybe just a random gift or whatever, but I mean there’s obviously a lot of people behind those two that really have your interest at heart. And I mean that’s been shown throughout the whole, the whole time.
I mean the key to it is having someone there and knowing that you gotta answer that door.
