You can lose weight if you’ll just do…

Alright! I’m giving enough warning at the get go that THIS IS ANOTHER RANT! Why? because I’m sick and tired of wam bam weight loss gimmicks that do abso-freaking-lutely NOTHING! They do not shrink your waist (well without compressing major organs, possible internal damage, need I go on?), get rid of fat in one area (a.k.a spot training) while leaving the other unchanged, or help you get skinny in 48HRS! I mean REALLY?!

IF YOU are truly being honest with yourself, you probably know this-like your little gray cells are beeping that bull crap meter LOUDLY! In the words of my mamma, if it sounds like crap, more than likely it IS crap; sorry to burst your bubble (not really though) but the reality of weight loss that is EFFECTIVE, is rooted in a healthy dose of reality as well as being honest with yourself about how you got here in the first place.

I’m no Einstein but EVEN I know that some wonder gadget (I use that phrase loosely) being lauded by some celebrity, etc (I’m always leary of celebs pushing stuff they don’t even use) or anyone else for that for that matter, is NOT the way to sustain a healthy weight, see real and lasting results, and JUST getting and staying fit! No No, NO! Don’t set yourself up for failure

I’ve been there and done that; sooo not doing it again! Committing to a healthy lifestyle is just that, a healthy lifestyle! Shortcuts usually lead to baad things happening and I’d hate to hear any more stories about someone ending up in the hospital because they used some weight loss gimmick and came out on the wrong side of it 😦

Being a fitness coach and working in Healthcare means that I see a lot of UGLY that comes out of these “shortcuts” and I guess that’s why I get soo pissed off when I hear about the “real” end results 😦 😦 I’m not saying every quickie is suspect, buuut be suspicious of all things quickie!

Change direction and think about something that actually works (a coach who’s on the journey with you, being part of an accountability group, meal plans, vast library of workout routines to choose from, etc 😉 )
