I am on Twitter, though I don’t Tweet a whole lot. I lurk. And among those I follow? DDP. And I can’t help it, following his social media feed opened my eyes to a whole new side of DDP. I was aware of DDP Yoga before, as it’s gotten a fair bit of press. My knowledge of it was most notably linked to how Page famously effectively saved Jake The Snake. But if you follow him on Twitter? The Snake is not the only person this guy is helping or saving. Countless success stories are a steady flow. People who were out of options, people who had been told there was no hope, that they just couldn’t get in shape due to ailments or debilitating injuries. And with DDP Yoga, so many of these people are changing their lives.
So, this got me thinking. Two thoughts.
First, and this is something I have not asked DDP, but from my perspective, I feel as though this man has had a much more profound and noteworthy impact on life outside of the ring, after his wrestling career, as opposed to his time in WCW (or even WWE). Championships and all.
Second? After seeing these Twitter success stories, it led me to some personal reflection. Here’s the hard reality folks. I am not a small man, nor am I in great shape. Normally, this is where I crack a self-depricating joke about how round is, technically, a shape. But no need for that. In what I will freely admit will likely be my most brutally honest statement in any of my posts, I need to change my life. I need to be healthier. I am a father of four, I just turned 38, and I am just a few unhealthy meals away from 300 pounds. And the more I read these success stories, I wanted to be one myself. I want to make the changes I need to make, and work my way toward the best shape I will have been in since before I got married. And I want to stay there.
Which leads me to this next statement. I’ve gotten myself a copy of DDP Yoga, and I’ve made using it, and getting fit, my own 2016 New Years Resolution. I will go beyond a review of the product-though that will be coming. I am going to commit to a weekly blog post, in part to track my progress, and in part to really keep me on track. When last I dieted, I admittedly used Weight Watchers, and those weekly meetings and weigh-ins were something I found useful. This time around, my weekly blog post will serve that roll, and I truly hope that I have similar success. And, perhaps WNZ has some readers out there also looking to change up their lives, and maybe, just maybe, this allows DDP to help even more people than he already has.
Stay tuned, WNZ readers. Here’s aiming to have a truly happy and healthy 2016!
