Imagine this scenario: You have a job search interview coming up. You find the right clothes to wear, but… well, to be honest, they are just a bit too snug. You really would do well to lose, let’s say, 15 pounds. Then they would fit really nicely!
How do you lose 15 pounds?
Oh yeah, one last detail: your job interview is tomorrow.
That changes things, doesn’t it?
The best way, in my opinion, to lose those 15 pounds, is the Body for Life diet and exercise plan. I’ve done it twice and the results are amazing. It’s hard, of course… all plans are hard. But the results… wow.
Oh, but wait… that takes time. Ain’t nobody going to lose 15 pounds overnight for their job interview.
You really should have been working on that three months ago. Or six months ago.
Have you heard the saying: When’s the best time to plant a tree? 20 years ago!! When’s the second best time? TODAY!!!

You think this post is about losing 15 pounds. It’s not. It’s about TODAY.

You get the point. You hear the message. Now, do something, TODAY.
It is NOT to late to start any of those things. But put if off to tomorrow, and tomorrow will become next year, and next year will become forever, and in forever you’ll be left sitting there saying “I need to lose 15 pounds by tomorrow… how do I do that??”
