In my experience people sabotage themselves from the beginning when starting a fitness program by setting up impossible goals . When a clients tell me they want to look like someone in a magazine or books , then a red flag goes up for me .
You need to build up confidence in yourself, and to start a fitness program or getting in shape require focusing on your body shape not weight . and stop comparing yourself with another person because thats a sign of low self esteem . Your goal is to look and feel the best you can , not to look like some beauty queen which is very unrealistic.
.For you to get to your goals without sabotaging your bank account , you need a good personal trainer which is rare to find , if you need help on that i will be happy to give direction .
Good coaching program – Your training program should be tailor around your health and whatever issues you have .
Good nutrition program and supplement is vital for your success . In this case its better to take an advice from someone who is using those supplements rather than a shop assistance who has no idea of what they are selling .
And as your body start to shape and look fabulous , then you can start to measure your progress by your clothes and your feelings , looks , rather than your weights .
