Life begins outside of your comfort zone! I JUMPED out of mine at 50 years young! What’s holding you back from JUMPING?

Life begins outside of your comfort zone!

Comfort zone is defined differently by every living human being on this planet.

Here are a few of them:

  • a place or situation where one feels safe or at ease and without stress.
  • a psychological state in which things feel familiar to a person and they are at ease and perceive they are in control of their environment, experiencing low levrelds of anxiety and stress.
  • in this zone a steady level of performance is possible

When I was younger I rarely stepped out of my comfort zone. When I turned 50 (in 2010) and weighed 310#, I stepped out of my comfort zone and shared my story on social media that I wanted to lose weight. My goal was to lose 100#. I actually lost 135# in 2010 and for the most part have kept it off. I appeared LIVE on The NBC Today Show in New York City on 11.26.10. As an obese person for so many, many years it’s always a struggle to eat right and stay fit. However, the scale is my motivator. I step on it briefly every day and that right there tells me what I gotta do. JUMPING out of my comfort zone and sharing what I do is hopefully an inspiration to others as well as myself. I’m committed to never go back to 310#.
