Joe Marich of Lakeline has what you might consider a tough challenge: His job. The owner of an Eastlake bakery said he wants to get back to his active ways and get control of his weight.

Let me ask you this: If every day you stepped on the scale and saw a lower number, and every week you looked in the mirror to see visually noticeable results, would you continue doing what you are doing?

Let me answer that for you. YES, you would.

It doesn't matter how "hard" what you're doing is, you'd still continue to do it.

In fact, you'd probably work out even more and tighten up your diet even more as a result of the RESULTS you're experiencing.

Results are motivating. If fact, there's absolutely nothing more motivating.


And here's another reality: If you're NOT experiencing results, you will never continue to put in the hard work and effort necessary to change your body.

Unfortunately, hard work and effort don't necessarily equate to results. In fact, there are a ton of people out there working hard, and getting nowhere.

Why? Because there's a ton of information out there that simply does NOT work for fatloss, while still requiring a ton of hard work and sacrifice.

For example, you could "diet" and choose the wrong foods and watch your weight stand at a standstill.

You could perform hours of slow-go cardio every week only to watch the scale read the same number week after week.

You could starve yourself, royally screw your metabolism, and even GAIN weight over time as a result.

And then what happens? You quit, that's what.

And I don't BLAME you. Why would you ever continue to sacrifice without being rewarded?

I wouldn't, and you shouldn't.

So take a good hard look at what you're doing and think about this: What's fueling your workouts? What's fueling your desire to eat healthy and consume fewer calories?

If results aren't your fuel, you're going to give up and quit...sooner rather than later. Proof? Let your car run out of fuel and see what happens.

That's right, it doesn't go.
