Many people dream of having a healthy and beautiful body their whole lives, but instead of making a small step toward achieving it (like signing up for a trial workout in a gym or gradually decreasing their sugar intake) they give up prematurely and don’t even try. Many times people blame their “bad genes”. But there are also people who try to improve themselves step by step no matter how far or impossible the journey may seem.
