  • What do you think about bioimpedance based body fat % measurements? Clearly it’s not cost effective to do immersion based measurements, and I know caliper tests can be accurate but is highly user dependent. However, bioimpedance measurements kind of extrapolate your total body fitness from just a small percentage of your body, so it’s got its own problems.

  • Great podcast. Definitely on point with where my family is in this moment even down to the day. (My son & his fiancee, not on the same page right now. I went over there last night. Me with my son & daughter, not on point. Me about losing the weight. (Weighed 273lbs in 2018. Weighing 271lbs in 2019). CJ are you the fly on my walls??? Lol… Thank you guys so much. I haven’t done the Assessment? Not doing the Accountability thing. Been turning the other cheek. I ain’t got but 2. I’m wayyyy behind on the plans I thought out for my life. Have had many setbacks but, I am still going. Forever sharing & following y’all. ❤����‍♀️��������

  • LOL don’t go back to unicorns and rainbows. We needed that rough rugged and raw. That’s how we grow. You guys don’t hold back that’s why I love you guys. Sometimes we need that tough love man. We all get too comfortable in our little bubble filled with unicorns rainbows puppies and kittens that we forget how it is to struggle sacrifice put in the effort to put in the work. Anyways God bless you guys thanks for all the content all the love and all of what you guys do.

  • “You know what else you gonna benefit from?” I KNEW EXACTLY WHAT WAS COMING!!! Keep doing what you’re doing fellas, big love all the way from London, England!

  • I am so grateful that the Married and Engaged Ministry allowed me, as a single woman, to attend their meetings. I’ve learned a lot. We have to make a life and recognize that marriage is a partnership. The first human relationship to solidify is the husband and wife. That’s the one for life while raising children is for a limited time. People wreck my nerves when they tell me “don’t get married” or “don’t have kids.” Just because they didn’t nurture and cultivate theirs, they want to project that on me. Miss me with that when Teachers spend more waking hours with children than their own parents do. Complain about situations, but refuse to do something about it. I’ve been learning and I’ll keep living as me with the expectation that my Purpose-Partner will connect and walk this journey with me; staying aware, authentic, and accountable. Thank you for not having the same pride and ego so that you could acknowledge how DeeDee’s Mom created a foundation to assist you all in the building of the legacy. Congrats to your son on stepping up to not have a woman “play” a wife as well. He has a great example.

  • Thank you ET, this was the best podcast episode to pull me out of my fear of facing my responsibilities that i wanted others to do them for me, Long time student from Ethiopia

  • I swear to u I have a problem with accepting the “blessing”. I trying to get out of the same slump. So I’m listening to get off warefare.

  • I take a video of myself once a month in the same spot with the same angle and the same lighting conditions in boxer briefs. I just lean my phone against something on the table and make the phone video record, then I stand back and pose for the camera.
    Front Side Back (I do both flexed and fully relaxed)
    That is the most useful method I’ve personally found to tack my progress as objectively as I can other than just the scale:)
    I then take screenshots from the video and join the pictures side by side every few months using the website photojoiner dot com, it’s quite simple and very useful. I am 188 cm and 82 kilos. I range between 78 and 83 kilos throughout the year. And yeah there are times where I look better at a slightly higher weight and times where I look less fit at a lower weight, that all depends on things like sleep, exercise consistency, hydration and mood etc. The scale is not the whole story.

  • Man that’s the same thing I was telling my son. The teacher gave you A but you cant tell me what’s going on that A paper. Half the words miss spelled. So I asked him you think you deserved an A.
