19 Jan Keppen’s Radical Body Transformation!
I have been a Lifebooker for a few years now and, up until last year, I still struggled in the Health and Fitness category. I had done 12-week challenges before, gotten excellent results, and yet seemed to gain my unwanted weight back again each time. I actually did this 4 times!!! Something had to change.
I was getting ready to turn 40 and said, “This is it. I am going to finally conquer this.” I was inspired by Jon’s post about him being in the best shape of his life at age 50. I was also inspired by Garret Gunderson’s post when he turned 40 and was in the best shape of his life.
I turned 40 myself, was ready to get in the best shape of my life and…… crickets…… nada- tostada!!! I really let myself down.
So then I was getting ready to turn 41 and said, “Okay this is it.” Something was different this time. I was really “feeling” the burden of my weight. I had let myself get to a size 38 jeans and I could no longer hold my stomach in. I was experiencing chronic heartburn, foot pain, and mid back spasms. I kept thinking – holy shnikes – everything really does go to hell in your 40’s!
Now if I wasn’t a Lifebooker, I may have gone into agreement with that negative thought, however…
I am a Lifebooker, and I said, “Uh huh. This year I am going to kick ass!”
This year, I am going to get in the best shape of my life and stay there. This year, my theme is going to be: RIPPED – SELF RESPECT. I finally understood what it meant to connect my Character category to my Health and Fitness category.
I kept telling myself over and over…
2015 IS ABOUT GETTING RIPPED AND HAVING SELF RESPECT! I WANT A LEAN, MUSCULAR, ENERGETIC BODY. MY WIFE DESERVES A SEXY HUSBAND. MY BOYS DESERVE A SOLID EXAMPLE, AND AS A HEALTH AND WELLNESS LEADER, MY EMPLOYEES DESERVE A CREDIBLE LEADER WHO LOOKS THE PART. I FOLLOW MY NUTRITION AND EXERCISE PLAN. I VISUALIZE MY RESULTS AND I GIVE AND GET SUPPORT!
I knew I had to do something different this time to get different results. I decided to compete in an All Natural Men’s Physique Body Building competition. I found a trainer, had my show date set, and transformed.
I worked my ass off for 9 months, lost 45 pounds, now wear a size 30 jeans, and am happy to say, I got in the best shape of my life at age 41.
I went from the heaviest I had ever been in my life, to the best shape I had ever been in my life.
I finished my intensive training in October and now I check in weekly with my trainer and I am maintaining with excellence. When I start to slip, I just say to myself – SELF RESPECT… SELF RESPECT… SELF RESPECT.
If you are doing [Lifebook’s] 12-week challenge (hosted by Damion Lupo), keep it up! You are worth it! You deserve it!
You respect yourself enough to look and feel your best!
God Bless and Keep Smiling!
Good things will happen,
