What's Your Body Worth?


What’s Your Body Worth?
By BuffMother! (Michelle Berger)


Have you ever considered the true value of having a great body? I’m talking about a body that is strong throughout…a body that performs when you need it to perform…a body that makes you smile when you see it in the mirror…a body that makes jaws drop… a body that looks the same or better than it did 20 years earlier. You can have that body!


How much is a great body really worth?- Let’s break it down!

1. Your self esteem will skyrocket- Loving your reflection in the mirror is under rated. The feeling you get when you love the way you look in the mirror is more powerful than words can describe. It’s almost impossible to have low self esteem when you love the way you look.
High self esteem= $1,000,000

2. Self confidence is the product of high self esteem. When you have ultra high self confidence you will not be afraid to pursue your dreams.
Unstoppable self confidence= $2,000,000

3. Doors will open- when you’re in great physical shape, have high self esteem and tremendous self confidence, you will be given opportunities that other people just don’t receive.
Doors that were previously slamming shut are now flying open=$1,000,000

4. You will create a legacy of health and fitness in your family. Physical fitness is a learned behavior. Your actions, both positive and negative will be passed down from generation to generation. It’s never too late to change your legacy when it comes to health and fitness.
Establishing a legacy of health and fitness; passing down high self esteem, self confidence and the tenacity to pursue dreams= $10,000,000 (at least)

Total Value $14,000,000+


Start by Believing you are worth it and commit to consistently invest about an hour a day towards your fitness and you can have a 14MILLION Dollar body!!!!
The First Step~ Is to Believe!
Just believe IT!! I am living proof- I believed I could do it and I did!!! The vast majority of women want to be in shape and feel confident about how they look, but they simply refuse to believe it is possible…especially after having children.
How to Believe:
Believe before you believe; Have FAITH.

I know it doesn’t sound like I’m making any sense, but listen. In order to believe something that you don’t see you need to tell yourself over and over that you believe it- it is called having faith. Tell yourself, “I will have a flat stomach again.” “I will feel energized.”; “I will wear my pre-pregnancy clothes again.” The possibilities are endless. It is all about believing that it is possible and that will lead to consistent action toward your goals. Faith + Consistent Action = Results
Baby Steps…Baby!!
You can make huge progress in just one week. Give yourself new things to believe daily and weekly. For instance even two days after delivering a baby you should start believing that your still huge belly will go back to its pre-pregnancy shape. I remember practicing this technique after I had my twins. Every time I caught a terrifying glance at my belly in a mirror or window reflection. I said to myself “I will have a flat tummy” over and over until it became a habit. This little habit reminded me to “suck it in”. Over time it worked!
Believe despite everyone telling you “no”
Many people don’t come right out and tell you “you can’t reach your goals”, but they will imply it with questions, or complaints, or jealous remarks toward mothers that are trying to be buff. Just, remember I am living proof. I became more fit than I’ve ever, ever been within 9 months of having my 3rd and 4th child by C-section. So take a close look at the source of the discouraging remarks and don’t let people that don’t understand, detour you on the way to your goal. Just believe that you can accomplish everything I’m asking you to do and you will be a BuffMother!
JUST Believe!!!!!
