This email was sent to me by a client who is indeed visually very different. He started somewhere around 290lbs. That’s all fine and nice. But the important thing is inside he is transformed and we’re past the two year mark (second photo is a graph he sent me a ways back). The progress in these numbers is great. But also he’s strong as hell (deadlift went from an unsteady 45 to an easy 350-400). He is off of medications. He does activities like downhill skiing FASTED for 10 hours. That is an internal identity shift. That’s not just a bolt-on weight loss story.
External visual weight loss is our fixation. But if the stats under the surface don’t change 2 years later, 5 years later, 10 years later, and the mentality of the individual doesn’t change, who cares? You don’t even have to watch closely and you’ll notice shredded people on IG and YouTube who are absolutely struggling with both depression and terrible internal health.
Cool photos, bro. But where is the internal change? Nice six pack. But are you happy? That’s a great posed smile. How about a candid pic of contentment? Nice transformation. But did it lead to getting OFF of drugs?
