Weigh Better U: Weighing Goals and Success

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

  While it is relatively cold out as of this writing (the evening of April 19), there have been enough warm days that it’s impossible not to recognize the changing of the seasons, and the passage of time, since January. It is spring, a time for new beginnings.

  How did we start the year? What were our goals? Which goals have we achieved? What goals are we still working on? Have we lost focus on, revised, or simply abandoned, any goals?

  With fitness, and generally in life, the most important goals and priorities are often the most difficult.

  Since January, I have made progress towards, and lost some ground from, my own fitness goals. (The birth of my second son and a recent illness in the family were distractions that, rightly, took priority over my own fitness goals.) The setbacks are simply more reason to keep moving, and working, towards my goals.

  I want to be healthier to set a good example for my sons, and so I can be there for them in the future. (Selfish or not, one of the best reasons to be healthier is that it means more time to enjoy life with the people we care about.)

  While trying to lose weight, and shrink my belt size, I have been trying to build and grow the Weigh Better U fitness studio. It has not been easy starting a business in the wake of a global pandemic and economic turmoil. But, as stated above, the most important goals and priorities are rarely easy.

  I hope that everybody reading this article is happy where they are. And, if not, I want to encourage them to keep trying.

  If you have any questions, feel free to send them to me at: samamado@weighbetteru.com

I look forward to hearing from, and helping, you.
