Have you ever seen the show "The Biggest Loser"?
I don't think I've ever watched an entire episode, but I'll tune
in for a few minutes every now and again.
It's kind of intriguing. These severely
overweight individuals putting themselves through hell to lose weight. I think it's awesome that they put themselves out there like that,
in front of millions of people, and get healthy try to successfuly lose weight.
But do you know the real reason
they lose weight on that
Yes they spend a lot of time
doing fat loss workouts (hours upon hours per day) and,
yes, they have the food spoon fed to them which makes it kind of tough to fail, but there's something else
that really makes them succeed.
Something else that many people are missing in their own health
and fitness goals, no matter what they may be.
That something else
The people on "The Biggest Loser" don't just

workout when you don't really feel like getting up.
You need someone to remind you why you decided to do what you're
What you don't need is someone telling you that your butt is too
big, that you have developed a nice "muffin top", or that your belly has started oozing over your
pants. That's not helpful. If you have someone telling you that, you have my permission to smack
them upside the head...hard.
