Know the consequences
If you eat more than you should, take responsibility for the result
I HAVE all the respect in the world for my fellow weight-strugglers, but when it comes to losing weight
there’s really a basic equation that everyone knows you need to follow. Calories, sugars, fat grams, carbs – whatever you want to measure – have to be burned or used by some form of physical exercise.
You expend energy just doing your stuff such as breathing, walking and functioning as a human, but if you put more into
your body than you are using, it hangs around as fat. People get fat because they eat s*** and don’t exercise. I understand that some medical issues can make people put to on get weightit off, and but that I’m it talkingcan be about almost the impossiblemajority here.for these people
You’re not going to lose weight if you eat truckloads of crap. Especially after you turn 30. It’s a well-documented fact that as
your age goes up, your metabolic rate goes down. The problem is that the stuff that is bad for us is not necessarily yummier, but it’s usually more convenient and supposedly cheaper. But here’s a tip – you are not a horse, so don’t eat out of a
bag, and your body is not a chemical waste disposal unit, so it’s best not to pump it full of the s***storm of numbers and
unpronounceable names found in ready-to-eat, mass-produced
foods. Don’t get me wrong, I’m no saint when it comes to the “eating right” bandwagon. I hide my chocolate in the empty organic muesli bar box, bought when I had a few extra dollars and the box kept for the purpose of deterring hubby and kids from looking in there for
I usually stay up late for the sole purpose of eating the
chocolate without having to share. I go overboard when I catch up with the girls for drinks and nibbles; I even have a pair of jeans one size too big precisely for these get-togethers. I’ll bake a cake and promise myself I’ll be good, but by the time I’ve licked my fingers, the bowl and the wooden spoon and
eaten all the offcuts, I might as well have eaten three pieces. But I’m not in denial that this is why my butt still jiggles and I
can’t seem to get rid of that flabby bit that spills out of the top of my bra under my shoulder blades. Let’s face it, you’ve probably got a little bit of extra “pudding” because you’ve been eating a few too many actual puddings. And that’s cool. Everyone knows what they need to do to get
the weight off so everyone makes their own choices when it comes to how you go about it.
This is not about fat-shaming, it’s about taking responsibility. Go ahead and eat that second cupcake or dig into that gourmet carb-loaded degustation dinner you posted pictures of on Facebook. Just don’t whinge when you suffer the bloated food guilts and you can’t get your pants over your thighs.
Everyone has a food vice or two, but the critical thing is knowing how much you should have.
