Make a Decision or Shut Up

>Ok, I am going to apologize at the very beginning.  I am fixing to rant and rave.  I am mad.  Hopefully you won’t hate me when you finish this post.

I am so totally sick of people griping about being fat while they sit on their butts and eat crap.  I am equally sick of people griping about their kids being overweight while they let their kids eat cookies and watch tv all day.


Being healthy is not hard.  Exercising is not rocket science.  You don’t need a silly support group or an online chat to help you make the right decisions.

Look yourself in the mirror and make up your mind.  Are you going to be lazy and eat crap today OR are you going to eat food that is actually good for you and move around for thirty minutes or so?

About six months after John David was born, I looked in the mirror and told myself I was tired.  I was tired of making excuses.  I was tired of complaining.  I was tired of being fat.  I have lost 40 pounds since then and kept it off.  I changed my life.  I put on my big girl panties and promised myself that I would never be ashamed of my body again.

I ran 5 miles today.  Not because someone told me to.  I did it because I love myself.  I am a beast now.  I am unstoppable.  I am not some weak little girl that just has to have a cookie.  I LOVE MYSELF.  I am proud to say I am 30 years old and have 2 kids, because most of the time people say: “Really? You look good.”

You worried about your kids or your husband?  They are watching you.  You can nag all day long, but until you start walking the walk, you are waisting everyone’s time.

If you have any questions on how to start or what I eat, I would love to answer them for you, but only if you are serious.  I am not a doctor, but I know what worked for me.  You can contact me via Facebook or Twitter.  The links are at the top of the right sidebar.

I love you, I really do and I hope you don’t hate me, but you need to make a decision or shut up.

What do you think?
