Here are the real questions to be asking yourself:

•    Are you going to commit to become the person you have the potential to be? 
•    Are you going to ‘claim’ the life you want at the weight you want?
•    Do you want a body that is healthy and strong? 
•    Do you want to be physically active late into your life to enjoy your children and grandchildren? 
•    Do you want to feel proud of how you look when you go home for the holidays or on a beach in the summertime? 
•    Do you want to be truly happy?

There are of course many ways you can get there. We have been developing these themes in our various programs. In our coaching program, the idea of the Hero's Journey is one of the tools that we use to get people to "the point of no return." These are powerful tools that are embedded in human history. We help you become your own version of Luke Skywalker in a sense. Maybe think about a hero or heroine that you identify with and some to the program with that role model in mind.

We also introduce elements of this idea in our free Tip Of The Day coaching program. Regardless of the tools that you make use of on PEERtrainer, I would like you to take some time right now and think about this idea of The Hero's Journey. What are the dragons you want to slay? What is the journey you want to take? What are the elements of this?

And please write it down in this PEERtrainer Community Thread

And this is not just about weight loss. When you start to move in a slightly different direction you will find yourself getting physically stronger, mentally stronger. Ideally, your overall pereception of what you are capable in all aspects of your life will be blown wide open.

In closing, please understand this: the only thing that can hold you back is your unwillingness to grow and learn.  The only thing holding you back from stepping onto your Hero’s Journey is your own fear, limitation and procrastination. The truth is, you don’t even have to know every step involved in getting there- you just have to be willing to commit to that first step across the threshold.  It’s really something worth doing, because on the other side is that life you’ve been wanting for years- maybe even decades.

So, will you come meet us at the edge?  Life is short and time is precious, so please don’t delay.

I wish you all the best on your journey forward,
