We’re a “quick fix” society. We like drive-thru windows, ATM machines, and DVRs that let us skip commercials. We want it all and we want it now. We also want it as easily as possible.
The fact is, though, some things just take hard work and determination.
I’m not a fan of weight-loss surgeries. I think they’re a quick, though certainly not inexpensive or even easy, fix that don’t address the psychological issues behind the original weight gain. I can’t tell you how many contestants I’ve seen on The Biggest Loser who have had weight-loss surgery.
I know some people may consider it their best option, but I’m still a fan of losing weight the old-fashioned way. If you think you can’t do it, check out this story of a woman who lost half her weight – 300 pounds – through diet and exercise.
It can be done! It won’t be quick. It won’t be easy, but it can be done.
Do or do not. There is no try.
