I want to thank Mike for sharing his story with us today and want to hammer home a few great points Mike made in his story.  First, like I said at the top if you want to be successful at getting fit or losing weight you must schedule your fitness time and not let anything interfere.  You must make it a priority.  Second, don’t let fear prevent you from attending Boot Camp or any other fitness program that will help you get results.  Everyone’s pursuing the same goal and would love to help you and see you succeed.  The real key to weight loss is your diet.  You must pay attention to everything you eat to include serving sizes.  If you’re serious about losing weight and keeping it off nothing is off the table (count your carbs) but you must be careful to watch serving sizes and not over indulge.  You can do this just like Mike, take action and get started TODAY!
