I’m going to keep this as brief as possible because I know you’re a busy man and get tons of these – so here goes...
In a nutshell, your Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle book has changed my life!!!! I’m 39 years old, have been fat all my life and have done all the wrong things and a constant has been starvation to the point of passing out. I wouldn’t even lick a postage stamp because I was obsessed, desperate, and crazy, and didn’t want to add to my calorie count.
My “wake-up” call for me was when this past February 2006, I was banging into doorways – misjudging the width of the doorway thinking I could get through but found myself hitting the edges. At first I didn’t think much of it but it kept happening so I bought a scale. I weighed 276 lbs. (I’m 5’7” btw) This was the biggest I have ever been and my heart just sank.
I prayed about this and asked the Lord to lead me in a direction that would help me get this weight off. I was so distraught over this and I didn’t know what to do so I asked for His help. Immediately afterwards I did a search for weight loss online and read some of the returns, then I saw the BFFM link. It was the first link I clicked on and I read it. I knew that this is what I needed.
I felt excitement and hope. I thought that maybe I was going to get an education on how to do this the right way and perhaps finally break that cycle. I bought it in March and read it (reread certain sections before starting) and I officially started in May.
Your book has taught me so much, it’s unbelievable!!!! Your book exposed my faulty thinking and corrected my misconceptions of which there were many. You have given me invaluable knowledge that I will carry with me for the rest of my life!
There is something else I noticed after being on the program for almost 5 months and I hope I can explain this well without minimizing the value of what you taught me. There is valuable information which you gave in your book – these are things that can be learned. Basically anyone can learn this if they buy the book (or any book for that matter).
But what I noticed is that my thinking has actually changed – it’s like I’ve been rewired or something. If and when I fall off the wagon, I get right back on. I no longer get discouraged and throw in the towel as I’ve done every single time I cheated before. Also, I WANT to exercise! I want to work hard and sweat. I never wanted to do that before.
How you think or what you believe can not be taught like a regular academic lesson. It is not something you learn but
something you realize, which changes your actions and lifestyle which in turn makes it very powerful! I’m not exactly sure what has happened to me but my perspective has been changed and I KNOW I will succeed this time.
Back to the exercise briefly. I said I WANTED to exercise…well this is what I did after buying your book….
I created a series of floor exercises focusing on my abdominals.
I started walking but I wanted to burn more calories so...
I bought an elliptical machine. (which I use every other day increasing my mileage)
I bought Billy Blank’s Boot Camp Elite.
I got a cook book and weighted bands which I use when not on elliptical
I joined a forum for fat chicks which gives support, inspiration, and information.
So far I have lost 26 lbs. and shrunk two sizes and I’m on my way to being a healthy chicky. :)
This email is as brief as I know how to be and yet there’s so much more to say. Your book has changed my life. I know that sounds like a cliché but it is absolutely true! I will be forever thankful and grateful to you!
Many thanks and blessings,
