Have you ever felt that way? You see a miracle product, someone gives you a simple solution or something goes just a little too easy and….. you wait for the fall.
It just CANT be that easy!
Well, I know what you mean.
Several years ago, I had a personal trainer. She was killing me. The diet was boring and I was starving. The workout was brutal. The thing I remember most was the 45 minutes a day on the elliptical at a heart rate of 145 beats per minute. Worse still was the fact that I was not losing any weight.
With all the effort I was putting in, I could not accept that there could be an easier way because all of my supreme effort could not budge the scale.
One day I saw an infomercial (ugh) for the 6 Week Body Makeover. It promised that, without ever getting my heart rate above 109, I could lose the weight in 6 Weeks. It also said I could eat, basically, all the time and would never go hungry. Best yet, since I knew there was no way it could work, it had a 60 day money back guarantee.
I bought it only to prove it was a scam.
Knowing that it is unfair to prove something to be unworkable unless you follow the program to the letter, I did everything it said. At the pace I normally walk, my heart rate pushed 115, so I even had to ‘meander’ or ‘dilly dally’ on my 45 – 60 minute required walk each day, all this after torturing on that dang elliptical. I religiously forced myself to eat every 3 hours. (That was really hard to do.) After the first couple of days, I found myself thinking, “Not again. Already????” But I followed instructions and ate.
In the first 2 weeks, eleven pounds had melted off me without ever breaking a sweat.
