Benefit #1,114 of Losing Weight: More Appreciation and Respect for Old Fashioned Hard Work
Losing weight ain’t an easy thing to do.
Sure, counting calories isn’t hard. But try doing it every day. Try counting calories as you go out for Mexican with your co-workers for lunch Tuesday, then resume counting calories later on that night at your niece’s birthday party. Mmm, I heard there will be pizza, cake, and ice cream all for the taking. Delicious! After the party, go home and force yourself to go to sleep early and wake up in the morning to hit the gym at 5 AM.
Do the same on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday mornings too. Then, start over again on Monday and with another 10-50 weeks you’ll be at your goal weight.
The information on how to lose weight is out there. I’ve talked about it so many times before — eat less and move more. Don’t tell me it’s not that simple. Losing weight is really that simple. If you fail at doing it and move onto something else, some other weight loss product or formula, you’re just giving yourself an easy way out. You’re looking for another trick, another shortcut, whether it be a diet, gimmick, or fad.
You want to lose weight? Go earn it. Get to work. You know what you need to do. Will it be hard? Yes. Most will fail — few will succeed. I failed a dozen times before I succeeded once and for all. It will be one of the hardest things you’ve ever done.
But it’ll also be one of the greatest.
