Another user on the message boards that really made an impression was Geezer. He gave us the idea to do a 21 DC. We would do Tae-Bo for 21 days straight. The philosophy was that it would become a habit. He talked about Gumption Traps, which is when we sabotage ourselves with our negative thinking. We talked about how some of us lost inches quickly and how a lot of us were Tae-Bo Tortoises. Tae-Bo Tortoises are those of us who make progress slowly. We became like family and several of us agreed to meet at the next live taping in Burbank, CA.
Now I am a very shy person and normally wouldn’t have felt confident enough to make a trip like that, but I decided that I was going. There was no stopping me. I know my family was thrown and I think they may have even felt a little sorry for me that I was so crazy. I went and met my friends from the boards. I felt a little shy as we gathered at our meeting place, but it didn’t take long for me to become comfortable with my friends. With the user names I knew them by, I was able to put together faces and names.
Later that morning we went to the production studio and watched as the Tae-Bo Junior and Tae-Bo Gold tapes were made. Taeboqueen introduced us to Billy, Shelly and Gayle Blanks. I was impressed with how genuine and gracious they all were. I met the Tae-Bo Team and even several of those who were on my tapes at home. The next day I took part in a basic taping. What a workout. It was even better to work out with Billy in person. I knew immediately that Tae-Bo would always be a part of my lifestyle.
Before we left, all who attended were asked if they would like to give a testimony. I certainly didn’t think I had anything to say, but with Taeboqueen’s encouragement I went in front of the camera. I was trembling, but the girl who was doing the interviewing made me feel so at ease I didn’t even know we had begun. I heard myself tell her about how I had lost inches and then I began to cry. All the pain I had been holding inside spilled out. I shared how I had suffered from bulimia and that since starting Tae-Bo I had found the courage to stop the cycle. I urged others to seek help and not let it take over their lives. I told her I would never be a victim again, and I meant it from the bottom of my heart. I then had to go home and tell my family the truth. I felt fear because telling the truth would mean I could no longer hide this secret I had been carrying around for so long. The best thing about it is that the truth truly does set you free. It certainly isn’t easy. I do have urges every now and then, but the will is like a muscle, and mine has become stronger. I just choose to say no.
Tae-Bo isn’t about fame and money. It isn’t just an exercise. It has become so big because it is more than just an aerobic kickboxing class. Others have tried it before. Tae-Bo is a way to become stronger physically and mentally. Billy is a great instructor, but ultimately you are your own teacher. Tae-Bo is about finding your inner strength and the will to conquer. The wonderful side effect is a well-toned body. I have come a long way over the past two years. I have fought bulimia and won. I have taken up karate, a sport that compliments Tae-Bo well. And I have become a certified Tae-Bo instructor. I am truly a Tae-Bo Hero and I am my own best teacher. Because Taebo is a way of life I will continue to better myself and continue to give it all I’ve got. I will never stop learning because when I do, my time on earth is done. If you have the will, Taebo is the way!
