I have a serious vent. Why is it that when someone loses a significant amount of weight, everyone automatically assumes it was surgical, or the result of some magic Hoodia pill? And when given the truth, they want to know which 'miracle machine' was used?
PEOPLE!! Enough already! There is NO such thing as a get-fit-quick solution. You can spend $500 on whatever the hell that porno-horse-abdominator thing is, and you will STILL not find yourself fit in 10 minutes or less per week.
Fitness is a lifelong endeavor- sorry, I know it's not what most people want to hear, but it's true. There is no magic pill. No fancy machine. No wishing on a star to get yourself from fat to fit. Only hard work, discipline, and pushing on and on and on will get you there.
Yes, you can get your stomach stapled in half. Yes, you can take some butt-leakage inducing pill to help you. But, at the end of the day, the only thing that will help you lose weight and get fit is YOU. You're the one who controls what you shove in your mouth. You're the one who can make the desicion to move. You're the one who has to stick to it.
You can hate it all you want, but really, the doctors are right. To lose weight, calories in have to be less than calories burned. Funny how THAT really does work.
