Ok SP friends, here is the question of the day.
Are you a weight loss snob????
Well, ok, maybe SNOB isnt the exact word. Expert? Queen of all Knowledge? lol, come up with your own and feel free to share.
Here is the reason I ask.
I often see people on Facebook discussing weight loss. And it usually involves some magic pill, or some clinic who will CURE them of their weight problem in only 30 days, or 60 or 90, whatever their insurance will pay or however much the person is willing to spend.
I have seen people come right out and ask, where can I get this pill or where can I get that pill.
I have friends doing the cleanses.
Power this or power that.
and to be fair, about a third of those actually mention working out, eating healthy, etc.
Most just want to eat the same, never move and just have that magic pill do the trick....POOF!!!!
I am not a snob in this regard, as before discovering SP and before discovering ME, I too was one of the mindless minions, who stood in line, waiting for my miracle.
There is this one in particular, a local, well, lets call it clinic....but we all know better.
Well, they are having a weight off, or weight loss contest I guess is their words.
In the comment section of their page, you can say why you should be the winner of their contest, to LOSE WEIGHT.
Now, they are all but guaranteeing someone, the WINNER, will lose weight.
Before even evaluating this persons health or needs, etc.
I see all these young women, especially young women, talking about how they have an upcoming wedding, reunion, etc.
They just dont get it.
Of course, there are days when I still dont get it either.
I dont get why, I have gained 20 pounds in 2 years, when I was on a weight loss roll....having broke my foot was the setback, but that was 2 years ago, and my foot is now healed and why am I not losing??
That is the 64,000 dollar question.
But everyday, I wake up, and I say, today, today, I will eat healthy, and I wont eat junk and I will exercise.
And for the most part, I do.
I have to own my role, I have been eating alot of fast food the last few months.
Honey having been hurt at work and having surgery in January, has to go 2 days a week to PT and so.....we usually pick up a pizza, or stop for a mc something.
I know I need to get my mind back to 2012!!!!
I often sit here and say, ok, what was i eating then, T H E N.....when I was losing, and lost 70 lbs.
I have a pic of myself standing on the scale, taken on Jan 7th, 2013.
I was at my weight loss LOW number.
I want to get back to that number and then keep on going.
I have to get this going again before I let it go too long to find my way back.
