Own it
This e-mail might sound a little harsh, but stick with it and I think it will really help you. If you are overweight, out of shape, not where you want to be in life, broke, etc... it is on you.
Some of us have had more opportunities in life than others. Some of us have had bad things happen to us. It's all about how you respond.   I love this quote: Choices   I speak from little experience on this. I've been fat, I've been depressed, I've been in jobs I didn't want to be in. I justified each and every one of those situations, so I didn't have to get out of my comfort zone and change.   It was easier for me to blame my circumstances, other people, the economy, etc... Two words allowed me to change.   Own it.   Take ownership of your life! Don't wait on someone else to change your life, it's not going to happen. Your family can't do it, the government can't do it, even your trainer can't do it.   Other people can inspire you, motivate you, and help you along the way but you have to do it. What you do with the tools and the opportunities are on you.   Are you overweight? Own it Are you out of shape? Own it Always tell yourself you are too busy to exercise and eat right? Own it   The sooner you own it, the sooner you can conquer your obstacles. Don't play the victim, it only digs you into a deeper hole.   Plus being proactive makes you feel so much better! It's in your hands now, you are not helpless any more. Just remember the Triple A saying.    

Action, Alleviates, Anxiety

  Own that saying and you are well on your way.
