PLEASE DO ME A FAVOR AND STOP DIETING! PLEASE. PLEASE. PLEASE. PLEASE. PLEASE. PLEASSSSSSSEEEE!!!!!
Stop this insanity. “Dieting” is not working for anyone. Do you know what works? LIFESTYLE CHANGE. Eat more lean meats, fresh veggies, fresh fruit and whole wheat grains in moderation. And do this forever and ever and ever. It is the only way to find success.
STOP eating processed foods, sugar, sugar drinks, Little Debbie cakes, cookies, candy, ice cream, fast food and the like. I am about to dish out some tough love and I almost feel the need to apologize a little for how I’m about to say this, but I’m just gonna say it…
If you are fat and you do not have a medical condition, meaning that you are how you are because you lie around, eat crap food, never move your body or participate in physical activity, then shame on you. I have a debilitating disease that I could easily use as an excuse, but I appreciate what I have and work diligently to show appreciation for what I can do. IF YOU ARE CAPABLE OF MORE, THEN EXPECT MORE OF YOURSELF!
Good lord why does some guy that writes a blog, that you’ve never met care more about your health than you?? How is it even possible that some complete stranger cares more about you than you care about yourself????????? Don’t you find this fact completely and utterly insane?
And why do I care so much? Because I believe and know that you are more capable than you are giving yourself credit. Any one can do what I have done! I see you every day at the grocery store loading your cart with frozen dinners, processed boxed food, fatty meats, sugary foods…and getting fat. I see you at the restaurant buying a milkshake each day at lunch because you “deserve it”…and getting fat. I see you drinking 15 sugary sodas each day because you are “addicted”…and getting fat. I see you sitting in the drive-thru line at Wendy’s because you are too “busy” to prepare your lunch the night before…and getting fat. I see you each day eating food that is going to contribute to your family lowering you into a grave. And the funny/sad thing is you don’t care.
Wow, Dreamer is being rough today. Well I’m tired of watching people die because they couldn’t resist eating 10 milkshakes a week or too much of a procrastinator to visit a therapist to find out why they are addicted to eating. I’m tired of looking at people at the grocery store that can barely bend over. I’m tired of seeing people that are slowly killing themselves and their children because of the crap they eat.
Let me dish out another bit of truth. Death does not discriminate as to why you are fat. If you have a problem with food, then you better go find someone to help you understand why and change or else you will die a premature death. This might be hard to hear, but heart disease kills 1 in 3 women in the United States every year, with obesity being one of the top contributors. ONE in THREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Hello!! McFly??!!
Oh and for those that are saying “I’m not that fat,” or “I’m not that bad.” Yes you are. If you are carrying around extra fat around your vital organs, then you are at risk. 70% of the United States is considered to be at minimum “over weight”. So unless you are in the fit 30% you need to change your life. It doesn’t matter if it’s only 5 or 10 pounds, your risk is elevated.
I will say this as plainly as I can…”You are not okay.”
I ask you again…How is it possible that I care about you more than you care about yourself?
In December I was fat. I had a huge fat tire ring around my waist and I decided to do something about it, read all about it here. I started by throwing out all the processed junk food and restocked my cupboards with quality fuel foods, retrained my thinking and starting expecting more of myself! Seven months later I am 168 lbs., lightest since high school, and I am so thankful that my past self did something for the new Danny, but I still have a long way to go so I keep focused.
Stop using excuses for your laziness. Stop looking at yourself in the mirror and hating yourself because of what you see. Stop saying that tomorrow is the day. Stop, stop, stop, stop! Oh, btw, not being able to move much physically is no excuse. I force myself to walk the dog 3-4 times per day. That is all I do to “work out.”
I control my weight exclusively through my eating because I have to due to my limitations. You might be confined to a wheel chair, but that has nothing to do with you stuffing your mouth with ice cream and ballooning to 400 pounds! Reality check, just sayin. Your condition has little to do with mobility, but has everything to do with self-control. Anybody and everybody can eat healthy food, regardless of physical constraints.
Go right now and read Time For Me To Change. It is time for you to become a doer once and for all and it starts today. Not tomorrow because you said that yesterday! Right now, immediately. You can do it. It will be hard. It will take time. But, you can do it! Today, be me 7 months ago and take action. I promise you will thank yourself as I do now!
