I spend a lot of time in the car, which means I have a lot of time to listen to podcasts and other voices.
I was listening to one of my favorite podcasters, whose name I will keep secret (unless you PM me), talk about obesity and why obese people are fat.
He said, "if you live with me for a few months, you'll lose weight." In other words, obese people can't help themselves to another helping of apple pie commode. They're fat, lazy, gluttonous people.
I've had enough with the fat shaming. I remember one of my professors in PT school saying (circa 2013 when I was 170 lbs), "you need to go on a diet." That hurt!
The fact is, most obese people know they're unhealthy, know they need to do something about it, and have probably tried in the past to change it.
I also know that most obese people don't want to be obese. They don't wake up and say, "I'm obese and this is how I want to be." If they could wave a magic wand they would be lean and fit too.
So why are they obese?
It's become acceptable these days to fat sham people. Bill Maher, the late night comedian and host of Real Time With Bill Maher, said a couple weeks ago that "fat shaming needs to make a comeback." It's so easy for healthy, lean people like me to kick fat people in the side and say, "just stop eating." Anyone who has every dealt with eating disorders would be a serious hypocrite if they ever said this.
In my experience, I never said, "yep, this is how I want to live." I had that civil war in my head. One side wanted to one thing, and the other side wanted to eat an entire package of cookies. I kept doing what I didn't want to do.
Changing habits and reining in the appetites of the brain are a tricky thing to do. I've spent the last 10 years of my life doing it, and that's what I want to teach you.
