I am a 66 year old woman, obese, with heart problems, lupus and arthritis. I have been attending Lisa P's Quick Fitness program for the last three months.
Although I have not lost a lot of weight yet I’m more physically fit than I have been in a very long time.
Health does not necessarily mean losing weight. Success can come in many forms. Overweight people can be healthy.
When I began I was short of breath, couldn’t climb a flight of stairs without huffing and puffing. Couldn’t walk half a block either. My balance was terrible and I could hardly lift my feet off the ground. I can climb many more stairs then before without losing my breath, can walk a much longer distance and I can now balance on one foot (although just for a short time) but I can do it now even though I couldn’t before.
I used to have funny little spells with my heart and they have stopped, which means my heart is also getting stronger. I WOULD SAY THAT IS SUCCESS!
Now my next step is to plan a food experience for myself (I will not call it a diet – that is sabotage for me). Food experience means eating the right food and keeping track of what goes in the mouth.
Thoughts for you to consider:
For those of you who are overweight (obese) Lisa’s program just might be for you. Lisa’s program starts you at low level and takes you up each level as you are able .She always keeps an eye on you as you exercise and encourages you to keep going. Everyone is there for the same reason OUR HEALTH. Just to let you know Lisa is a registered nurse and a certified fitness instructor – great credentials.
Just thought I would give you something to think about. There are many obese people out there who don’t want to go to a gym because they feel like everyone is looking at them. What does that mean (FAILURE) they go home and never come back. I’ve been there, I’m a prime example. There is an untapped market out there.
