When one decides to better his or her health the obvious two things one has to do is eat better and exercise regularly.
But when one is a fatty and is stuck in a routine of inactivity and excessive eating, breaking out of that routine and into one that features healthier food options and repetitive movements is akin to Kim Kardashian's desire for marriage.
A good amount of gyms promise guidance of a trainer but the last thing a fatty wants is to be yelled at for being fat and out of shape. Another thing most fatties hate – I'm guessing – is working out in public.
The idea of me taking my disproportionately top-heavy frame to a gym to lumber about while breathing as loud as the sound of a plane taking off and creating Lake Michigan-sized pools of sweat wherever I stand for a few minutes is stupid – even though it's the best thing to do.
There are so many different "experts" on the best way to train and lose weight that the information really can make a person dizzy after hours online on stuck paging through a magazine.
"Experts" are different from people who are genuinely able, willing and want to help, because the "experts" come from a place of condescension where as the genuinely helpful people are motivated by empathy.
I've received so many wonderful words of encouragement through Talkbacks, emails, text messages, Twitter and Facebook. I sincerely thank you all for your genuine care and for reaching out. I'm looking into every tip that was sent my way. You people are the type of community that fatties like me need.
Similarly, there are so many different approaches to eating healthy that trying to make a decision between all of them is enough to make a person stay home and get delivery.
Popular diets like South Beach, Atkins, Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, Nutrisystem, 17 Day Diet, etc., all require different things and have different philosophies to losing weight and they all try to sell you on why they are the best way to lose weight, for YOU.
