“Thanks for joining me, Jaime!” Mike exclaimed as we sat down for lunch.
He’s a pharmaceutical sales rep and I’m a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. We share a mutual love of animals and what’s new in the world of medication. After business, the conversation turns personal.
“So, you have what, two kids, now?” Mike asked. “You look great! Are you doing one of those extreme workout programs?”
“No, I don’t do extreme workouts. I work out twice a week and for only 20 minutes at a time; 40 minutes total per week. I don’t sweat during my workouts. And I don’t even change clothes.”
The stunned look on his face was priceless. Suddenly, he burst out in laughter at such a preposterous idea. “You had me going there for a moment! Boy! That was funny. But seriously, what are you doing to stay in such great shape?”
Then I Shared My Secret
“I am serious. My trainer has me using a super slow protocol to lift and lower weight under control. It’s all very safe and we work out in a room that averages 65 degrees.” Mike’s trying to decide if I’m pulling his leg. So I continue.
The Incredible Power of MED (Minimum Effective Dose)
“Let me explain it this way. When a doctor issues a prescription, it’s based on the minimum effective dose. Too little medication isn’t effective. But too much is toxic. The same can be true with exercise. Too little doesn’t get the desired result, but too much is harmful.” “That makes sense,” Mike admitted. “But only 20 minutes, two times a week? I run for hours every week.”
“I understand,” I responded, “but I’m living proof.”
Fighting Back Tears
The last time I went shopping for pants, the saleswoman took one look at me and said, “You need a size 6.” “But I’m wearing a size 10,” I responded. “And they’re baggy,” she said. “Trust me; you’re a 6.”
I almost cried in the dressing room as I slipped into a beautiful pair of size 6 pants. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. I hadn’t been a size 6 since I was a sophomore in high school.
But the best feelings are at home. My husband is the brilliant silent type. When he talks, people listen. So when he compliments my figure and tells me to wear dresses that show off my waistline, I feel like the most desirable woman in the world.
