I’ve said it before. This is hard. When you boil it all down, the only thing that works is work. There’s no simple way to do lose weight. You have got to put in the work. I can say this, if you do the work, it will work. You’ve probably heard my mantra, “Eat less, […]
I was listening to a recent episode of “This American Life” and it really hit home. I’ve been fat forever. Not because I want to be fat and not because it is easy. Being fat isn’t easy. You get looked at, you get laughed at. You constantly feel like you are a failure. You feel […]
