Being an athlete has always been an integral part of my life, and as time goes on, I realize that participating in sports at multiple levels of my life requires not only that I learn the skills for the sport, but also the importance of caring for the body that helps me perform my best. I've learned that fitness is a battle, much like faith. The same way I have to fight for what I believe in against lies of culture, I also have to fight for my health. You are your own best advocate, and no one else is going to give you the results you want. The fight is agony, but it's your fight. That's my challenge and encouragement to you. You have been given a gift--your body. Your gift has been given to you for a purpose and you need to fight to discover that purpose, because only you will live inside your body. If you are the person waiting for the right motivation, the perfect pill or the magical surgery to erase your weight loss struggle, start fighting today. If you are believing the lies of the media that says you're not beautiful or handsome unless you look a certain way, start fighting that lie today. Fight with certainty, bringing your body into submission through discipline. And compete with strategy, by casting off the burdens that make you slower, & run toward the prize of a new life. Let's start fighting for our lives today.
