Perseverance

I feel great. I look great. My health is good. I’m fit. These are all things I couldn’t say two years ago.

Two years ago, I weighed nearly 300 lbs. My health was failing. I was probably going to die within 5-10 years after a slow, agonizing decline of health. Two years ago, however, I was able to change that, turn my life around, and I got healthy and fit.

How did I do it? Well, aside from the Paleo Diet and Whole30, I used a whole lot of perseverance. I stuck with it even when I didn’t want to, when I felt like I wasn’t making progress, or when I was tempted to eat non-Paleo foods. I stuck with it; I persevered. I ignored the temptations; I persevered.

It wasn’t easy, even though Paleo is simple.

I wasn’t Superman; I was a former Marine who persevered and stuck to the Paleo Diet.

I wasn’t about to let myself fail. This was my last chance at a normal life of being healthy and fit. Nothing was going to get in my way. Nothing.

That is what perseverance gets you: results.
