Do you ever get the feeling that those who ask for specifics aren’t going to listen anyway? This was one response to my Wednesday post. I want to tag her but not sure if she wants me to so I will leave it to her to reveal herself. 🙂
But honestly, I do feel this way too often! People ask me for help, advice, suggestions. Of course I want to help but I always add – It is going to be HARD WORK NOW & FOR LIFE. That is just the way it is – cut & dry. Gimmicks & quick fixes don’t last. Check the statistics! Many do just not want to hear that they have to work for it! Well, you know what – you have to eat well but with balance, you have to move, you have to WORK AT IT! Of course it may be small steps getting there – that is fine! Slow & steady wins this race because you learn your body, you don’t do crazy things that cause you to give up, you find out what works for you!!!
If you ask me, I am going to tell you the truth. It is just like the hormone change. People like to sugar coat it in the media. I refuse to do that because it was hell for me & I am still having issues years after menopause! I am going thru another hormone battle as I write this. Being honest, you just will never get it until you have gone thru it all. Classes & books do not tell the real thing!
I know women want to hear “THE CHANGE” is not that bad. I know people want to hear that losing weight & keeping it off has a short path to victory. I WILL NOT PLAY THAT GAME WITH PEOPLE. I TELL THEM THE TRUTH!
Sure, I can do this below like many:
OR I can tell you the truth! Hard work, changing your eating habits, patience, consistency, balance in life, finding what works for you for life is what works! I have lots of previous posts on this.
Anyone else feel like they get asked questions but people really don’t want the honest answer?
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!!!!
