When Did People Start Being Born Fat? That's Right They Weren't!
I have read articles upon articles about the National Association for the Acceptance of Fat People. An organization that started out as a social group for chubby chasers and has now grown into a civil rights advocate group. I have always tried to help my fellow man in their quest for self-improvement but I can never accept a mentality that is of entitlement and self-destruction. One that this association has built its whole platform upon.
I can't wait for the e-mail to start rolling in from the crazy people thinking I'm the Devil incarnate for holding mirror in front of their fat faces. That's just not true. I am not going to stand by idly and allow fat people to believe that America or American citizen actually owe them something, because we don't... because we don't.
You owe yourself the self-respect of not asking people who try hard every day to not be a burden on the health-care system and live healthy and unselfish lives to accept the way you want to live.
Why should I accept the fact that fat people in general have placed a huge burden on the health care system? Heart disease, Diabetes and Cancer are the three major causes of death in the United States and they are usually linked back to not just obesity but fatness.
It's amazing to me that I am told by fat people every day that it isn't their fault. I must have been punched in my head too many times when I boxed because I don't know who else's fault it could have been. I know for a fact that most fat can exercise and don't have to stuff their faces like it was their last meal.
The phrases I love the most is: "It's not my fault, it's my genetics" and "It's not my fault, I have a medical problem".
I want to impart on you a little wisdom: Genetics play a large role in weight and not fat. Most Americans are usually 20 lbs heavier than our European counterparts. Most of the weight is from muscle and bone not fat. You become fat because you store fuel. Your DNA has nothing in it's make up to make you fat. Lack of movement and over-eating is why you get fat. Don't blame your DNA.
As for the medical problems, certain thyroid conditions can cause weight gain but with the proper exercise programs and thyroxin treatment your fat gain can be managed. The percentage of this condition is 1% of 1%, so how can 65% of the population blame a faulty thyroid. Most of the problems with thyroid conditions are no one is willing to do the necessary work to keep their fat in check. They resign themselves to having a problem and let themselves stay fat. If you have broken your leg, do you need to do more work or less work to get your leg back to normal? Exactly. What happens when you don't do the necessary therapy? Nothing, and you walk with a limp the rest of your life.
The fatter you are the more work you need to do, not less. Anything that promises you quick results without work preys on your ignorance and more often stupidity. Gaining and losing fat is all a numbers game. That's it... in a nutshell!
If you want to lose 30 lbs in thirty days, then don't think you can sit around all day and do nothing. To burn one pound of fat per day you will need to expend 3,500 calories during the course of that day over your basic caloric expenditure... and that takes work.
You will need to change the dysfunctional relationship you have with food and your adversity to anything related to exercise. You will need to learn how to burn as much fat as you can within the shortest amount of time. The answer is not "cardio". The answer in a nutshell is to allow your systems to burn fat by exercising, controlling your portions and knowing what your daily caloric needs are.
If you believe you have no time to implement a basic workout program to get you started than nothing will help you and you should die of a heart attack sooner than later. You are the one who has decided to stay fat. Fat is a condition you have placed on yourself. Trying to get laws on the books that include you in any group like African-Americans, Women, Asians, gay or lesbians or Latinos is just plain stupid and should be dismissed without question. Fatness is a self inflicted condition.
No one can change that condition but you. You need to look into your very being without excuses and change your attitude and then begin the journey of self-respect, self-reliance, and breath the freedom of self-confidence.
If you don't feel the same way then ask your children to get a nice insurance policy so at least they have something to show for your selfish indignation.
