Dear Scale,

Due to your abundantly clear decision to continue to punish me on a daily basis, I have decided that I have no other choice but to wage a full out war on you.

I have exercised every day for the past two and a half weeks, without fail, for 30-45 minutes a day. What more do you want from me!?

I will no longer wrestle with, attempt peace treaties with, strategize against or hope to tame you.

You have gone too far in your attempts to derail me.

I am a warrior.

This is war.

Hi. You have done really well so far so I imagine your frustration has is because your weight loss has slowed down.

Is this because you are eating more?

Is it because you are eating too many high calorie foods?

Are you eating enough protein,fruit and veggies?

Just asking a few questions to get you thinking if need be.

If you're satisfied your food plan is good then I encourage you to keep going.

The scales can't be mean to you forever. *smile*

So our scales are apparently on the same side, b/c mine isn't fighting very fair either. Geesh, what's it gonna take? 8 classes a week?

I just discovered your lovely blog, but have had the same issue. I logged in over 530 minutes of exercise in 7 days, ate fairly well and never over did it and the scale did NOT BUDGE!

Frustrating but I still feel victorious for all that exercise. You just have to be proud of that, right?

Let’s face it. Who wants to be fat, especially women. It is a known fact that obesity in this country has become an epidemic. Why? If you look at TV, you will notice the media is constantly bombarding us with ads about food.
Why are advertising agencies flooding us with so many TV commercials about food, especially about McDonald’s or Burger King? The simple fact is they want you to get fat so you will go out and spend more money on diet pills. This way you can get skinny and then start all over by going back to the fast food joints to get fat again. It is a catch-22 scenario. It is a vicious cycle.

Understand one fact. The heath condition of the majority of people in developed nations has deteriorated to such an extent that it has literally become a crisis. According to experts, about 70% of the adult population living in the U.S is overweight. This means if you are thin and healthy you make up the minority.

This is a sad fact and something that needs to change. To think that the normal way to live is to be out of shape, overweight, and have all kinds of diseases? It is insanity. To think that nine out of ten people are obese is a bad stat. And this is what this country is leading to.

Why is this country leaning toward getting fat? It is because most of us live sedentary lives. Kids are not spending their time running around and playing games outside. Instead, they jump on their video games or spend time surfing the Internet and chatting with friends or others.
Besides the above, people are getting fatter because of the way they eat. They try to grab something quick and end up eating something they should not. Everything that is bought from the store is processed. It is refined. Most foods are packed with chemicals to preserve them for shelf life. We live in a fast-paced world. For this reason people claim they don’t have time to cook or are too tired to. So they grab quick junk foods from corner stores, fast food joints, and restaurants.

The plain and simple fact is that people have become lazy. In order to get out of that, you need to push yourself to maintain your control. You have to act responsibly.

The solution to being overweight is simple. Make smarter food choices, prepare your own meals, and get out and exercise. If you do this, you won’t have to worry about being fat.

If what is contained in this article scares you, then you need to pick up a copy of my e-book Fast Track To Fat Loss.

Once you do this, you will learn the right way to eat and will lose that weight and keep it off as well. Just go to http://super-fast-fat-loss.com to learn more.

People say that the scale never lies, but it does. It never says how hard you worked all week, or how many cookies you passed up and worst of all, it never gives you any credit for how many years and months you've poured into trying to lose this baggage.
