The Power of Words

Years ago I remember engaging in a conversation among some co-workers with weight loss being the topic of conversation. I’ll never forget when cries of laughter began in response to a comment I made suggesting my desire for a future physical transformation. Shortly thereafter, the last words I remember uttering just as I motioned in the opposite direction, was, “Watch you’ll all see. ... One day I’m going to lose this weight, get ripped and make it on the covers of Men’s Health and Men’s Fitness magazines.” Consequently, it was in that moment that set the tone for an evolution of a new story yet to unfold.
