Why losers? Well its not because I think you're all losers and not worthy but because we are all trying to be losers losing weight together.
Well I recently posted a remark to someone about cravings and why we get them. I'll often start a reply with a jokey remark such as ''booh hoo'' or ''blah blah''. This is not to annoy but as a joke as so many responses are often ''your great'' ''we love you'' which has its place but often its the truth that is needed so that the individual can move on and get to where they want to be.
I run a weight loss group here in my village and it does very well but I don't molly coddle everyone all the time. You just cannot do that as if you don't tell someone that they are wrong then they will never learn how to change it. I have rewards for exercise such as medals, gold silver and bronze for distances walked, ran or while playing golf. The further you walk the better the medal and everyone seems to like this. They have been going out cycling, walking, exercising more than they would have done and the Olympics has been so inspiring and has got people off their bottoms and out the door.
Some people don't have any more chances in this journey. Some have been doing this for years and years and are still in exactly the same place now from when they started except they feel worse about themselves and suffering extreme low self esteem and confidence. This all has to be tackled alongside weight loss as if it isn't then you will go back to type once you come off your 'diet'
I have got under the skin of some ladies so much that they then go, ''sod him...I'll show him' and go out and do something above and beyond to shift a few extra pounds and then afterwards have come back and said thank you. Reality is exactly what I needed......
We can all be lovely and say wonderful things about each other but sometimes reality is what is needed to give you a kick up the backside. It's either a few words on here as a message to change or maybe a heart attack later on as the message. I want you all to be in a place where you are happy with yourselves and happy about how you feel both physically and mentally. I don't advocate a body beautiful or the bikini body. If that is your desire then that is fine but most people just want to feel healthier and happier. Able to fit in those nice jeans or dress and feel wonderful. That is what I wish for all of you but I'd be wrong if I was to just sit back and watch people destroy all their hard work by not allowing facts to get in the way of feelings....
Good luck losers and I hope you all have a great coming week and that you get to your individual goals
