Book Excerpt

From “50 Steps to Lose 50 kg . . . And Keep It Off”

Whilst physically my body has changed so much, the biggest transformation has been mentally. One of the most amazing things about losing weight, for me anyway, was discovering just how narrow-minded I had been in the past. I remember one conversation early in my training with Jason, my personal trainer. I said I would never learn to love going to the gym. He said:

“You can do whatever you want to.”

“I know. But I don’t want to do it.”

“Maybe not now but who knows what’s going to happen later on.”

“I don’t think so. I hate coming to the gym. I really hate coming. That’s why I have a trainer because I know that if I pay I’ll come.”

“But you might learn to love it.”

“You can’t learn to love something. You either love it or you don’t.”

“Bullshit, Sally.”

Now, whilst it actually took some time for me to learn to love weight training – I did learn to like it fairly early on. A few days later we had a similar conversation about running:

“I went for a jog this morning,” said Jason.

“I hate jogging. I’m never running. Ever. It’s boring.”

“Why say never? Possibly one day you’ll enjoy it. Who’s to say never?”

“No – I know what I want.”

I later went on to run for over an hour a day! And in yet another conversation which proves how narrow-minded I was:

“So how’s your nutrition going? Do you want me to help you with your diet?”

“I’ve lost seventeen kilograms by myself. I think I’ll be right.”

Jason later told me that at the time he was thinking, “Another know-it-all!”

Whereas I was thinking, “What would a dumb gym guy know about nutrition anyway?”

Back then, if I had seen the film “Burn After Reading” I would have considered it an overly complimentary portrayal of the intelligence of people who worked at and went to gyms. I thought anyone who went to a gym simply had nothing better to do with their lives than to look at themselves in the mirror all day and that personal trainers were failed athletes who were too dumb to get a real career. Looking back, I can see how this attitude may have been preventing me from reaching my full athletic potential!
