Stop Waiting for Something to Come Along to Save You from Yourself
Nobody is coming to save you. Your weight problem is your weight problem.
While your friends and family love you, most won’t stop you from consuming an extra 2,000 calories a day. Nobody is going to come talk to you about being overweight or obese or the damage you’re causing your body and the life you’re missing out on. The love they have for you stops them from saying something and potentially hurting you.
Isn’t it ironic, don’t you think?
You have to take control of yourself. Your friends/family aren’t looking out for your best interests. My mother didn’t say a word to me about my weight even as I started breaking seats because she loved me. She admitted after I lost weight that she didn’t know how to say anything without hurting me. It’s not that she didn’t speak up because she hated me and wanted me to die at the age of 30, but because she loved and cared for me.
I resent my mother for my weight problems. Kidding, I love her and I’ve never held her remotely responsible for reaching 344 pounds. My actual point is this:
If my own mother would’ve stood beside me at my grave because she loved me, do you think that anybody else is going to stick their neck out for you? You’ve got to quit thinking that someone or something is going to come along and make tomorrow be a better or easier day to start losing weight. Nothing is coming, so stop waiting for it.
Nothing will ever change until you do.
