Before becoming a member at California Fitness & Yoga Centers, my weight was the most it’s ever been, about 176 lbs. (80 kg). When I joined CFYC in February 2011, I thought, like so many others, that I could lose the weight I wanted to by myself, by exercising and eating right. I started off exercising intensively, but my balloon of enthusiasm rapidly began to deflate over time.
A moment of truth can come from a surprising source.

I want to lose weight, have a fitter body and being better health.
I was not confident in my body, which led me to lack confidence in social interaction and even in my work. My blood pressure was low, I usually felt dizzy, tired and analert. I spent several hours in front of computer and TV. I consumed a lot foods that were high in sugar and fat, and I hardly moved.
In the past I tried dieting products with no permanent result and so I felt I failed myself.
I was ashamed of myself with the way I looked and the way people looked at me. I was tired of having to suck in my gut when at the pool or beach to try to make myself look thinner when everybody else around me had great figure & looked good.
