You Heard It Here First

I’m not sure how much longer I will have the time to blog because tomorrow I’m pretty sure I’m going to become famous. 

About 15 months ago, I started working out with a personal trainer. His name is Armando Aversa.  When I started working out with him I was about 25 pounds on the wrong side of the scale.  Over time, I learned how to create a new and healthier lifestyle that suited me personally. 

I did not follow a plan or program, but I did listen to what Armando had to say about weight loss, fitness, attitude, perserverance, patience, etc.  And as I opened my mind up to new ways of doing things and new ways of thinking, slowly but surely the pounds melted away.

But when I reached my goal weight I was surprised that all of my life’s problems were not solved.  After all, wasn’t that the point?  Lose the weight, find true peace and happiness.  Well, it was part of the journey, but I quickly learned that I had more work to do.

My personal journey led me to the decision to quit drinking for one year, and to blog about it.  From there so many things have started to fall into place bringing me closer and closer to my true goal of finding peace with God and ultimately peace  within myself.  Peace about who I am, what my purpose is, etc.  All the big questions I have spent a lifetime struggling with.

Tomorrow, on Mother’s Day there is a new book hitting the shelves.  Armando has written his book Believe…The Holy Grail of Weight Loss because he has had such tremendous success with so many of his clients that he wants to share his journey and his words of truth with everyone. 

I encourage you to visit his website at and check out his book.  And don’t forget to check out the testimonials.  You might see someone you know…
