I've never really been a person who has had to think about dieting or even weight loss.  Over the years I have tried to stay active doing some kind of physical activity such as sports and working out at the gym.  However, I did slow down a bit with the gym workouts the last two years and once being active in Judo, I'm lucky to even visit a class now.  My lack of interest in the gym and working out with Judo has mostly been due to work, but than again, that is only an excuse.

Of course, it didn't help working in a bar where you are constantly surrounded by food and drink and the only thought of keeping active is sitting on a bar stool or playing pool.  But, no matter what, everything boils down to excuses doesn't it?  We can all come up with a million excuses why things turn out the way that they do in our lives, but having the right solution to our problems can more than often leave us in confusion and misery.

So, it's time to make a choice – period!  Like Yoda says “do or do not” there is no maybe.  If I put it off I could easily see myself in the doctors office another year from now and experience the same situation only maybe even heavier or I can simply except the fact that I need to lose weight and make a difference for myself.

The choice came easy for me immediately after my doctors visit.  However, the problem that I was left with was finding the right solution for me in the way of fat loss diets or weight loss programs that I could easily follow or even follow through with at all.  Like I said, I'm not a big fan of the so-called fat loss diets or any weight loss programs.  There are many foods that I've grown accustomed to and the thought of living without them is pretty hard to swallow.  But, the fact remains that I need to do something as the foods that I buy and eat are obviously interfering with my weight.

I spent two weeks in June after my doctors visit researching weight loss programs on the internet and even watching infomercials on the latest fads that were top on the market.  Now, even though I am not a fan of most diet or weight loss programs, I do have some knowledge of them and a good deal of knowledge into physical fitness.  But my mind went completely blank when I had to find something that will work for me.  Informing others of what might be good for them was easy, but something for myself seemed utterly impossible and almost like it was never heard of before.

It didn't dawn on me that I already promote a weight loss program called the diet solution program.  Yes, I knew a little bit about it, especially since I was promoting it, but I never thought I would actually be following it for myself.   In the past, I've written articles and blog posts for other people regarding nutrition and health, but never really gave it much thought for myself, probably because I believed that I was immune to such things.  Its kind of strange how some things work out in life, of course, for many of us, that's just the way we survive.
