Hey Guys, I really appreciate it.
I see what you mean by not falling into old habits when I get back. It's kind of odd for me. I work in film, and as such, I've spent most of my adult life living out of hotels, and with catering providing most meals. That combined with 80 hour work weeks, and I've gotten very out of shape.
It's to the point my doctor recommended weight loss surgery, or face an early heart attack. I don't like the idea of using surgery. I figure for the same price of the surgery, I can spend several months at one of these fat camps, or weight loss retreats, and see the same results through a much healthier path.
The other thought I had was for that price, I've seen ads for 24/7 live-in personal trainers. I might hire one of those for a few months. He would be my eating and workout conscience until I re-establish the good habits for myself again. The plus side to that also is it would be establishing those good habits in a familiar surrounding, so when the time was up, I wouldn't be at as great a risk of losing the good habits with a change of scenery. The only problem there would be finding a trainer who is a good fit. Anyone know any trainers here who do that sort of thing?
