Three years ago, my job moved my family & I to a new city. With long hours behind the desk, eating whatever I could snarf down at the time and little time to do anything else, my weight got out of control. I got up to 260lbs, which is a lot for someone with a family of heart issues.
In August, I started trying to change my diet slowly, adding in vegetables more often and the times I was eating. I also got my 11 year-old into a JuJutsu/Karate Dojo and starting training with him. However, being 3 years off of regular training, I was nowhere close to where I was. I especially felt it in my knees & back, along with all the wind I was sucking at 245.
Enter DDP YOGA. I knew DDP had YRG back in the '90s, but never took a serious look at it. Then I heard him talk on Rod Pod about it. He talked about Arthur's Transformation and bring Jake "The Snake" Roberts into his home to give him a hand up. At that point, DDP YOGA just made sense. I ordered it, worked on the Diamond Dozen bits at a time, feeling things out.
43 Days ago. something flipped the switch in my head. I started doing Wake Up & Energy in the morning. I also started Phase 2, but saying that I wouldn't be hard core because of the Holidays. Turns out, it was easier than I thought. Eventually, I adding doing an Evening Work-Out when I wasn't at the Dojo with my son.
As Dallas likes to say, I'm still "Under Construction", but I'm 23lbs down, 2 pant sizes and on a roll. My goal is getting down to 180lbs, which is lighter than I was 15 years ago.
The Long & Short of it, I plan on taking DDP YOGA every day and not just Owning My Life, but Owning This Day, every day!
