I attribute my past successes in both fat loss and muscle building to my unstoppable mindset. I set big goals and mission statements, I visualize, I adopt positive beliefs and attitudes, I incorporate support, accountability, and I find role models and mentors to help me along the way. All of these things have motivated the heck out of me in the past. Now I’ve discovered something that has ignited a flame under my butt and has taken my motivation to entirely new level. Scheduling a photo shoot.
I heard a few of my fitness mentors mention this before but I guess I brushed it off. Well not this time. The topic came up in a recent conversation with Tom Venuto and as soon as I got off the phone with him I booked a photo shoot for both my wife Angie and myself. We’re doing this together.
Pay For The Photo Shoot Ahead Of Time
8 weeks from today on April 2nd, Angie and I have a prepaid appointment with a professional photographer. We told her if we don’t show up, she can keep the money. There’s no way that I want to just hand money over for nothing, so you can be sure that this is incentive for me to go ahead with it.
What separates a goal from a dream is a deadline. So many people have a vision in their head of what they want their body to look like, but they don’t give themselves a time line to achieve it by. Scheduling the photo shoot not only provided me with a concrete deadline, it also puts a bit of fear in me because there’s no way that I want my picture taken if I’m not looking my absolute best for it.
I also have a sense of pride about this journey. Having a professional photo taken will give me the opportunity to show off the results of all my hard work that is going into the process.
Scott & Angie’s Fat Loss Goals
On April 2nd the day of the photo shoot I am 5% body fat and Angie is 13% body fat with incredible definition throughout our physiques. We look at our bodies with a sense of pride and accomplishment, much like a sculptor would admire the completion of one of their great works of art. There is a great sense of joy in observing our children, Shayne and Noelle looking at us and our pictures with great admiration and knowing that our actions and behaviors are being passed on to them.
Knowing that accomplishing our goals and sharing our journey with many others has now led a path for others to follow makes us feel like we have taken a giant step towards fulfilling our destiny. After all, we are just an average family but we take our health seriously. We have busy schedules and the typical stresses like everyone else and we have proven that if we can do it so can you.
We are on a mission to reverse the obesity trend and help 100,000 people create the vibrant healthy bodies that they deserve, and we are certain that our journey will spark the inspiration to get this movement going.
We also feel that having accomplished our fat loss goals together as a husband and wife team, truly demonstrates the power of spousal support.
Angie and I are announcing our goals to everyone that we know and even the thousands of people that read this article for a reason. We understand the power of public accountability. And now for one more piece to the puzzle. Posting our before pictures.
These are our most recent photos. I’m at 10% body fat and Angie is at 18% body fat currently.
I can honestly say that I have never been this psyched about my fat loss goals in all my life.
Even if you aren’t going to be competing on stage, and even if your goal isn’t 5% body fat. I highly recommend that you schedule a photo shoot and capture the image of your vision of your own perfect body.
Pay the photographer in advance and prepare to look your absolute best.
Go for it!
