We look stupid. We've learned how to abuse most advancements in our developed country. We use cars instead of bikes. We eat fast food because it is just that...fast. Some even watch those rediculous infomertials about a new weight loss diet or piece of equipement and buy it thinking now is the time I'll turn my life around. You want to know the truth. I bet you'll buy that equipement, use it pretty well for a week or two, and slowly begin to taper the amount of time you spend on it until it becomes a decorative piece for your living room.
Do you want to lose weight? Really? Then here are the facts nobody wants to throw in your face. Your fat. Forget all those people saying be happy with your body - their are only saying that because they are hoping to feel better about their own. Just look at them sometime, they are all fat too. Go to a gym and get a membership and if you have the money a trainer too. This is the only way, unless you really are able to turn your entire life around and do this all yourself (however, since you probably know nothing of fitness or healthy eating, because your fat in the first place, this will likely not work for you). The trainer is there not just to show you what to do, but to keep you coming back. A bit harder to skip out when you have a coach to answer to. And of course, stop eating like that cow in the pasture and try to eat somewhat better, maybe even smaller portions. It is ok to be hungry once in a while. I think most Americans don't even kn0w what that feels like.
And if you think that this is just another skinny person speaking their mind, you're wrong. I used to be fat and took action because I got sick of looking like just another fat American.
