Weight Loss Is Easy.

Bull shit.

Stop kidding yourself.

Weight loss is not cute. 

Weight loss is not fun.

There's no diet that "let's you eat whatever you want"

Or a shake that "tastes like heaven itself!"

No one revels in the idea of getting up at 5am to go to the gym... or late night runs around the neighborhood despite having a million things to get done.

Here's your tough love moment...

It takes hard work.

It takes dedication.

It takes perseverance.

It takes consistency.

You have to be a bad ass.  You have to suck it up, buttercup.

You have to dig deep and know that despite the time suck, despite the missed opportunities for chocolate cake, despite the social events, despite the pain and effort - it's worth it. 

Ask yourself, are you really up for that challenge?

Will you really dedicate yourself?

Can you really commit to the journey for the long haul?

If there's doubt - remove it.

You either go hardcore or you don't at all.  

Quit kidding yourself into thinking this is fun and enjoyable.

Train hard.

Make sacrifices.

Push yourself to your limits.

Embrace the suck. 

Be bad ass anyway.


  1. Love this! It's HARD ASS WORK! And it's totally worth it. Great post!

  2. Honestly, as a person who's struggled with being overweight for my entire life, I realized all the weight loss tips and tricks you see online and on TV are completely wrong. I lost weight the best and quickest way possible, I even wrote a blog about how I did it. If you're struggling with losing weight, read my story and try it for yourself. It will work. Here you go:

  3. I have lost a total of 12 POUNDS!! feels so good!! I started a program i found on the internet 3 weeks ago. I sleep better at night and have more energy to get me throught the day, this program relies on medically sound reasoning and is not one of the quick-fix-gimmicks so commonly seen on the Internet. so if you want to loose weight choose a program and stick to it. THERE IS NO MAGIC BUTTON.
    if you are looking for a place to start you can check out the program i am following at:

  4. I agree with most of what you said, however, weight loss doesn't have to suck. If you are trying to lose weight you need to make sacrifices and you need to be dedicated and it requires a lot of hard work, but if at the end of the day it sucks for you and you are miserable, then your mind is not in the right place. I've tried and failed many times before and I've finally come to realize that sacrifice does not equal misery in the name of being healthy. Just a different perspective; Great, thought provoking post!

  5. I get up at 4 a.m. every day (even on the weekends) to get in my weight training/yoga/, swim, bike or run. And I started it over 40 years ago as a teenager. Training for my 121st triathlon currently. I leave the house at 6:15 for my 45 min. commute to work with preschoolers all yeah it's a lifestyle and I LOVE mine!
