Anton’s Tip of the Week:
Exercise is all about goals: setting them, achieving them and setting new ones.
We all become complacent in life. We feel that once we have gotten to the goal that we have done enough and we can always do more later on.
It’s at this point that the battle is really only half won.
You have done a lot of hard work and it’s great to be able to say “I started this way and now I’m like this,” but it’s being able to maintain what you have done and to go further that takes more discipline.
I’m not saying that what you have previously done has been for nothing – but if you let yourself slip – then it has been.
It’s easy to slip back into bad habits and you can end up right back where you started a lot quicker than it took the first time.
So my advice is to keep at while you have the momentum behind you.
Thanks guys, more next time.
Stay healthy – Anton

A big hello to all, I must admit that I have lived in Sydney for near on 25 years and can’t remember it being this cold – many of you have suggested that I am feeling the cold more now as I don’t have as much padding .
These 2 weeks has been a difficult 2 weeks for Anton’s training regime as I have had a severe gout attack during the last 2 or so training sessions. Anton is very patient and has worked around this. I also succumbed to a sinus infection which warranted a trip to the doctor. My doctor has been 100% supportive of my efforts and was again amazed at my progress and commented on my excellent blood pressure/blood sugar levels.
Over these past few training sessions, I have concentrated on building muscle and must admit I am starting to see changes (again I know that muscle weighs more than fat).
I do want to clear up the confusion over my progress and my weight loss tally above.
I started this journey at 158 KGs (I have told you previously how I started)
On this occasion, I was extremely serious about losing the weight, keeping it off and changing my lifestyle. I realised rather quickly that to break the pattern that I had done before – where I would get started on a weight loss program, do well in the beginning and then just veer off track – I would need help to achieve my goals. You all know from previous blogs how I was introduced to Anton. I began the process with Anton and my GP’s blessing with a goal of achieving 110 KGs.
When I reached 154 KGs, the directors of the hotel suggested that I pick a charity and declared that Cambridge Hotel would donate $100 for ever kilo I lost. You all know again from previous blogs how I come to pick and partner with “Dragons Abreast”.
I will again say that this has not been an easy journey, however I must emphasise that it has been a rewarding journey and it continues. I could not have done this without Anton’s help and the wonderful support from my family, my friends, co-workers and the wonderful ladies (and gentlemen) of Dragons Abreast – I am again thanking you all as last Saturday - on my 17th weigh-in I achieve in what I can only describe as a milestone.
I weighed in at 118 KGs
Since the beginning approximately 5 months ago, I have lost 40 Kilos.
Anton has now fully prepared me for what comes next. I will now slow down on my weight loss, I still have 8 KGs to my next goal and I am hoping that I can achieve this in 8 weeks. It is quite surreal saying this and seeing that I will be 110 KGs, for those of you who have not experienced having a weight problem, it is a very rewarding feeling for me to be able to say that I am achieving my goals in weight loss.
The blogs will continue and, along with Anton and my GP we will see what happens when I finally reach 110 KGs (if you listen to the professionals they say my ideal weight is 90 KGs).
The second half of the year also brings challenges – “Awards Season” starts shortly in September and I have the UK/ Europe sales missions and many conferences in the second part of 2010.
As I always say, one day at a time.
Please mark in your diary that The Quality Hotel Cambridge will be hosting a Cabaret night for Dragons Abreast on the 27th August 2010, it promises to be a fantastic night.

Until next time, stay well, stay warm and cheers
