The biggest shift for me was an internal awakening. My spirit was enlightened to the idea that we can do this. A belief that we are ridiculous and we are super human. What an amazing concept to realize. I can be a super human. - Zach
Firstly, thank you so friggin’ much MFF! At 35, my friends (those older than me) confessed it would all be downhill from here, haha. But, after these six weeks, it feels like I am actually heading in an upward direction… but I’m not climbing a hill, I’m soaring above the clouds.
My goal coming into this was pretty superficial. Basically, “I’m doing this because I want to look fucking HOT.” It was also in reaction to the idea that I had to prove something to others. All the others throughout my entire life who told me, in one way or another, that I couldn’t do certain things.
From the neighborhood boys who wouldn’t let me play with them because they thought I was “delicate” to the high school teacher that blatantly told me I shouldn’t go to homecoming with my best friend because I was too short and she was too tall. My first boyfriend convinced me I had no talent and I should give up my dream of acting and singing because I also didn’t have the “look” to go far.
The judgement I received along the course of my life I stored away, and for the past few years now I have used that as motivation (Jerry Springer style) to show them, “Well look at me now!” I did it for them, to prove them wrong.
Something I learned recently though in analyzing my “why,” is that my motivation has changed and shifted. I don’t need to do anything for anyone else but myself. In fact, I’m now doing it solely for ME, and me alone. Not to prove anything to anyone but to congratulate myself that I. Can. Do. Anything. As long as I’m doing it for ME. I AM PROVING ME RIGHT!
Through the last six weeks, the MFF sherpas have guided me and I have been given so many tools that, when used correctly, there is no other option but a healthy and SEXY outcome.
The biggest shift for me though, was an internal awakening. My spirit was enlightened to the idea that we can do this. A belief that we are ridiculous and we are super human. What an amazing concept to realize. I can be a super human. At least, that’s what I took from this experience.
I’m a pretty neat guy, but if I focus and stay diligent, and work hard, I would slay this program. I know I slayed. Shonte you stay. Now it’s time to slay in life and be the best version of Zach I can be. A ridiculously Super Zach, if you will.
Just like that, Snatched is over, but the journey continues. A constant and endless journey to a better self. It is also a forever reminder and proof that I am worth anything and everything to myself.
