Tom's Journey

Workout Day 1: This is Where My Journey Begins

My name is Tom Nobili.

My story begins where it usually begins: I am going to lose a lot of weight and it is going to be different this time!

My story began this way more times than I can remember! Exercise usually lasted a few weeks. I would lose about 10 or 15 pounds. After that, I would go out and celebrate, and before I knew it, I not only put the pounds I lost back on – I gained a few more.

Although this journey began much like other ones have begun before them, this one started much differently.  I agreed to be a part of a group from work who would be working out together 3 days a week as part of a new Radio show, Getting Real, where each week, we would highlight our week on the air and report any weight loss that we had.  Our trainer and host of the show was actor and fitness coach, Real Andrews.  Real is very passionate about helping people lose weight. The only thing that he asks of us is to show up each day ready to work and to practice a more healthy eating style. We began our journey with Advocare’s 24 Day Challenge, where we took daily supplements and followed a structured eating plan.  From the very first day, I knew that it was going to be different this time. Real believed in me and I trusted him.

Real started us with our first workout by doing an evaluation of where each of us were as a starting point. The first thing we did was see how far we could run/walk over a 12 minute time frame. I was barely able to go one lap before my back stiffened up and I was sucking wind. In the 12 minutes, I only went a little more than a half mile. It was frustrating for me because I really wanted to get a mile, but my body was telling me much differently. We continued with a series of exercises – sit ups, push ups, other basic exercises. In my mind, I did so poorly. I was so out of shape and I was worried that my coach would see me as a lost cause. I felt defeated on that very first day. After our hour workout, I was exhausted, even though we only did basic exercises. I was embarrassed because I was so out of shape and it really hit me that I needed to try to continue with this opportunity that was given to me. If I didn’t, I would be heading for an early death, leaving a wife and young son on their own. I was assured that as long as I did what I was asked to do and just show up, I would overcome this initial frustration and start to improve my health.

I was not convinced, but I decided to keep going for one reason: Coach Real Andrews told me that he believed in me.
