A Year Later with Eugene Hodge
's Success Story
Wow I can't believe it's been a year since I started this transformation process. I have to tell you it was especially challenging for me to do this for a few reasons. First, it was hard giving up all that junk food. It had become such a normal part of my everyday life that the thought of not having it was literally emotionally painful for me. I would stop a Dunkin Doughnuts on the way to my night shifts for doughnuts and sweet coffee drinks. I was torn because as much as I loved getting the doughnuts I hated that I was sneaking to do it. Secondly, I just didn't want the things that "seemingly" brought me so much joy taken away from me. I didn't want to feel deprived. However, there were very powerful reasons for me to get started and not quit. Look at how I looked a year ago. I suffered low back pain and couldn't take a stroll on the beach with my wife, (definitely not with my shirt off). I developed sleep apnea, which is a condition related to obesity that for short periods of time during sleep I actually would stop breathing. I got tired easy and my weight was affecting my sex life. Nothing about me was sexy.
When my wife Angela decided to become a fitness professional "The Fitanista" I knew that there was no longer room for any excuses. I wanted the world to take my wife seriously and I knew that wouldn't be possible if I was walking around looking like Fat Albert's little brother.
Speaking of my wife. Having the support of your significant other will help you stay with the process. This journey is difficult to undertake. She was there to help me stay in line, to encourage me when I wanted to quit and believe me, I had some dark days during the transformation process and could of quit at anytime. As I didn't realize I was a sugar addict going through withdrawal.
Food preparation was something that my wife took care of. I was very happy to have her there to not only provide me with an incredible meal plan, but to also cook the food for me. Guys if you can enlist the help of your significant other believe me she will love to help you because in return she will get the younger more fit you that she fell for in the first place.
I love this lifestyle and the body that I envisioned inside is now visible to the world outside. I feel great, I have loads of energy and I have head turning abs. The Fitanista's Fit Meal plans were designed for women, however, let there be no doubt that they are powerful enough for men.
Angela. My Queen, I appreciate all your hard work and dedication to your clients and your craft. You are a winner and I support you with every rep I complete and every time I lift my fork.
