Everyone loves Nancy Harms. She’s been a member at Babylon almost since we opened. When I think of Nancy, I think of humility. She’s so “others-centered,” it’s refreshing. This is especially true in a world where it seems more and more people are all about ME, ME, ME. She always has a cheerful word for our other members. She’s also encouraged me on many occasions.
Nancy had always done really well with her exercise and nutrition habits since she began with us. But then as it has a way of doing so often, life happened. This comes in many forms. Sickness in the family. Car accident. Job loss or financial problems. For Nancy it was a physical injury. She had to stop coming for a while because she was so limited in what she could do. This wasn’t easy since Nancy was so used to her active lifestyle.
When Nancy recovered, she found herself at a crossroads. She had now gotten so far off track with her fitness, she wondered if she could recover. She was now getting winded much more easily and poor nutritional choices followed her lack of activity. As you can probably imagine, this wasn’t the best thing for her mental state.
She went back and forth but ultimately she knew what she wanted. She didn’t only want to drop the weight she gained. She wanted to transform herself back to where she was both physically and mentally.
So she started making one small change at a time. She joined my 6 week Answers program which includes key nutritional principles as well as accountability. She lost 11 pounds and is now stronger and healthier than ever.
I know what you may be thinking. She’d already been in shape so she just had to dial it back in which was easy for her. The reality is that many people that “fall off” never regain those delicate habits.
As Nancy reflected back over the 6 weeks, she realized that it doesn’t matter how far you get off track. You can always decide what you want and work toward it. It’s not where you came from that matters. It’s where you’re going. Where are you going?
