Selling you a bag of air…

“Easy weight loss!”

“Simple weight loss tricks!”

“6 minutes to a flatter stomach…”

 

Guys. The only way you’re going to lose weight in 6 minutes is if you drop a giant deuce. Sorry.  Welcome to reality.  The only thing that MIGHT help is if you also let loose with a giant urine stream a la Tom Hanks in A League of their Own.  

The truth is, weight loss and fitness are not easy.  It is not simple. It isn’t even, really, straightforward.  Each of us is a unique snowflake who has specific responses to stimulus. 

You will work for it. 

You will sweat for it.

You will make sacrifices for it. 

There will be times you really really want to do something that will derail your progress, because for that moment, it feels good. There will be times you have to say “No” to family, friends, and coworkers.  You’re going to have to wear your big girl panties and make sure you handle your business and do things that you may (will) find unpleasant in the moment. 

I’m not here to sell you a bag of air.   There is no snake oil here. No promises of an easy road.  It’s work. Breaking habits is a difficult task, one that you have to undertake every day. 

So if you’re looking for someone to hug you and tell you we have a quick fix, an easy one, one that won’t disrupt your cozy comfortable life…

I’m not that person.

It’s not easy.

 

It IS, however, worth it.
