Sorry But Here Is Your Long Overdue Painful Lecture
Saturday, February 11, 2012
It sleeted and snowed much of the day yesterday and last night but melted on contact. Very weird weather. Today was bitterly cold and it started out around 12 and warmed up to 26. We didn't care and went outside anyway for a very long walk. It was definitely cold but at least the sun was out and we walked longer than usual. We ate well today too.
Now to the lecture. Some of you have earned this.
As you all know I read a lot of blogs and some of them have changed my life. They have inspired me and I have learned invaluable information. Others have almost made me ill. Sorry but I must be brutally honest. This may sound mean but some people should read their own blogs from an objective point of view.
This only applies to a few people I know but it is a chronic problem. They resurrect a recurrent theme - they blame their cheating on other people: I had to eat the Twinkie to make my hubby happy, my daughter will get mad it I don't eat her birthday cake, the people at work keep forcing doughnuts on us, the hostess will be hurt if I don't eat the brownies. Yeh, right. Sorry but I'm calling you out on this. It's total B.S. and so lame to blame others for your cheating. It reminds me of my son's grade school chum who told me he was allergic to vegetables. LOL. Total bunko. Stop using others as an excuse.
When I eat "garbage" and, trust me I do, it isn't because my son and husband forced me to do it. I'm not going to blame my cheating on the cat or dog or the devil or a boll weevil. It is because I'm weak-willed and wanted to eat bad.
Do you know how stupid this excuse sounds? Please grant me some intelligence. I'm a nurse. I know better when you try to feed me this crap and so do you. Why do it. Own you mistakes.
And, PLEASE, PLEASE. PLEASE don't ask me the next day why you can't lose weight or why you gained weight when you have been soooooooooo good because I'm at the point where I want to tell you the truth and you won't like it.
You can either be a loser or a loser and there is a difference. With one kind of loser you drop unwanted pounds and with the other kind you haven't lost an ounce, just any semblance of integrity you ever had by making lame excuses. Your choice.
Hopefully for your sake Nice Morticia will be back tomorrow. LOL.
