I want to apologize first off if this blog offends anyone!! so, I apologize ahead of time!
Ok, so here it goes.
I don't push my success on anyone IRL, it's just so obvious to all how much I've changed in so little as a year. YAY! me! lol Anyway, I've been asked over and over.... *How did you do it?* I simply answer *I'm counting cals, carbs, fat, etc along with excercise, and with the help of SP and all the support I get from this excellent website.* ........it's just so simple.. cals in vs. cals out..
I truly want to help people without being pushy of course, ultimately they have to have the WANT to.
The reactions I get when I tell them how easy it has been.. I get *I dont have time to do all that* , *Thats too much trouble* , *It costs too much to eat that way*, *I don't want to deprive myself*, *Life's short I don't want to give up my fav foods*, *I don't know why I'm fat I don't eat that much*.........wow. You get the picture.. Some have even tried to make me feel bad about my success.... Talk about raining on someone's parade.. lol Thank goodness for haters because those people only make me stronger......... :)
My point here is, I'm starting to be frustrated with people and their excuses.. I just want to tell them all to just stay unhealthy then..... You have to give up some things sometimes in order to recieve the rewards.. Of course I would never actually say that to someone! I too, used all the excuses I could think of to justify my bad eating and laziness habits..... There just comes a point in time when excuses just sounds dumb....and lazy... Because let's face it, the excuses don't FLY!
excuse: *Counting cals etc. is too much trouble.*
You can't do simple math to add up your day for your health?*
excuse: *I don't have time*
*what?... you are planning your next meal in your head already and you know it, so make a GOOD CHOICE for your health?*
excuse: *I can't afford to diet*
*You can't afford to eat less for your health?
excuse * I don't want to deprive myself*
*You didn't deprive yourself, that's why you are unhealthy, now.
excuse: *Life's short*
*Life's shorter when your unhealthy*
excuse: *I can't give up my favorite foods*
*You don't have to give up your favorite foods, you just have to learn to manage them into your plan for your health! ie: moderation
excuse: * I don't eat that much, I don't know why I'm fat*
*closet eater, much?
Remember, I would NEVER say these things to people, but I did say these things to myself when I tried to make up ways to stay fat and unhealthy...
Bottom line, people have to have the want to, and it's really none of my business, but when I'm approached about it, I figure they already have some part of the want to. But, I think they are thinking I know some kind of magic secret or pill that makes it just disappear without hard work. And when I dont't have that magic answer, they want nothing to do with reality.. simply eating right and exercise.. EVERYTHING in MODERATION...........IF i had a magic answer I wouldn't be just giving it away! I'd sell THAT and be rich and famous! LOLOL
anyone else feel my frustration?
