Fitness Trends and Why I don't get involved.

When it comes to fitness trends, dieting, and health, some people ask me: "have you tried this...? Have you tried that...?" I almost always respond with no.
Not because I place little value in health and I'm never opposed to the effort.  In fact, I encourage people to establish good habits and commit to a healthy lifestyle. I know it's hard to lose weight, but people need to realize it takes time. 
I once weighed 196 lbs and now I average 155 lbs (with fluctuations of 1-2 lbs up or down day-to-day). That took me four years, not 30 days.
I try not to get involved in trends, dieting, or the latest health "study," because I view my fitness and health as a life-long pursuit. It should be life-life long, not last 30, 60, or 90 days.  My health requires life-long commitment and progress. 

In the words of Chrisse Wellington "There is never a destination, only the impulse to grow."
