“You are the CEO of your own health.”

Jumping Over the Most Difficult Hurdle of Losing Weight


Notable Quotes

“These people that I’m working with are typically 40-100lbs. overweight. And they’d try to do something themselves, but they have no plan, they don’t know what to do…they need someone to hold them accountable. And that’s the number one priority of my job, is to hold people accountable—very difficult to do it yourself.”

                                                – Bill Vogel

“One of the big problems people have in their 50s (and over) is that if they look at their friends, their closest friends, they all look like them, so it’s not out of the ordinary to be overweight. So when you see all of your friends like that, you’d think, ‘I’m good, I’m good,’ and they’re really not. And unfortunately, as I mentioned here earlier, it takes something to share them up, whether it’s a medical reason or like the embarrassment I had.”

                                                – Bill Vogel

“…the day will come when the doctor will say something you don’t want to hear.”

                                                – Bill Vogel


Episode Summary

If you’re in your 20s or 30s, keeping yourself in shape and feeling great because you make sure to take care of your health, wouldn’t it be nice to keep things that way until you’re in your 40s, 50s, well into your 60s and even further? But if you’re a little older and you find yourself ready to take that first step to reclaiming your health, don’t fret—you can definitely get into shape and start feeling great, too.
