I was told at the doctor’s office that as a Health Care Professional I should know better. The realization was complete when I returned home and looked at photos of myself. I decided then to make a change that would affect not only my physical health, but my mental health as well. I had some general goals and a basic image that I wanted to achieve, but no real idea of the lifestyle changes required and the journey I was about to begin.
JWFNS has taught me how to incorporate healthy eating into my everyday life. Learning how to shop and prepare food was just as much of a challenge as the workouts. Meal planning for the week coupled with weight training and cardio was the basic plan. The results were amazing and at times I had to stop and question who this person was in the mirror. The JWFNS family created a structured environment with timely support.
I realized from day one that this is a lifestyle change and not a diet. It required my priorities to change. It required discipline that at times rivaled the martial arts. The focus was on my health both short and long term. After only four months, the changes have been unbelievable and I am in the best shape of my life both mentally and physically. I look forward to continued success working with JWFNS.
