Actually there is some truth to the blindfold message. What I've noticed is that visual stimulation and physical touch are often in contradiction to one another when I am with someone. The person who is not visually appealing may still feel just as wonderful as someone who is easy on the eye.
The video guy is engaging and says some common sense things. I have lost 5lbs in the month of December. You know how hard that is to do. People have been shoving candy and cookies at me at work and in my family.
I am 58 and am looking better than I ever have since I was 30. When I was 30, I was doing a lot of cardio and lost 50lbs on Weight Watchers. I broke 200lbs which was great for me.
I am still 245lbs, but I look the best I possibly could at 245. I play tennis 2-4x/week and love it. I stretch daily and recently started weights again 2x/week. For me, tennis is a huge motivator. I want to be a better player--that means weight loss But damn my legs look good, even at 245.
I would add some things which help reach fitness goals. Don't skimp on sleep. When I started going to bed earlier, I had more energy in the gym or the tennis court, and my evening cravings for food went away. I went from about 5.5-->7+ hours of sleep.
The advice about being the best you possible is really useful. When I compare myself to others, I always lose. I win a lot more when I compare myself to myself. I end up liking myself a lot more.
