|My struggle is I like to eat therefore I do not lose weight at a rapid pace. With this program and another one I had in Va. I have learned to eat much healthier foods. No junk food at all. Chips and dip… gone by the wayside. Cookies and cakes non existent. My downfall is wine. In addition, I get frustrated because of my age. I didn’t think a woman of my age and size could do what I do now. I also had a knee replacement 9 years ago which hindered a lot of the activity that I use to do. Also I didn’t like working out with other people. Now not only do I attend personal training but group training. Mentally I was perfectly happy eating all the “good food”. But at the end of the day it made me feel like crap. With the additional weight I didn’t want to do anything or go anywhere. My knees and lack of strength in my legs, would prevent me from going up and down steps frequently. Therefore would also prevent me from participating in outside activities I so enjoy. MVP has helped me gain the confidence to try and do just about anything. Recently I toured the Grand Canyon and was able to hike for miles. In addition I could climb up onto small rock formations. Before MVP and personal training I did not have the confidence, the stamina or the balance to do these things. Steps have become so much easier for me to maneuver. The skies the limit for me. I am not afraid to try anything. Even at 65. I will be doing zip line in November up in the mountains. Still have a ton of weight to lose but I have the confidence that I can become stronger and lose the weight one pound at a time. My goal is to be able to do at least one pull up in a year. Pull ups are very difficult to do and requires a lot of upper body strength. I need to lose the weight to be able to pull up my body also. I love working out and lifting weights which I NEVER could have said that before. It use to be a chore and now its a job that I love.
