"Obesity is a disease not a decision"

This is a new campaign that the American Medical Association actually declared obesity a disease! Billboards with this phrase are popping up around the country.

I've worked out for 10 years straight and I definitely sacrifice eating shit food even though I enjoy it just as much as the next guy. THIS IS A DECISION I HAVE CONSCIOUSLY MADE.

I have a bachelor's in Health and Human Performance and was a personal trainer/gym manager for a few years. And while I took a different route in my career path, for reasons of career stability/money, I still hold the value that what is healthy or weight loss is very simple. When I was training, I preached this to my clients all the time. Almost to the point of undervaluing my services! Horrible business practices I know. No wonder I chose a different career! But for me it is about honesty and all of this is really very simple. There isn't some magic formula you have to figure out. If you are gaining weight, you are eating too many calories, if you are losing weight you are eating less calories than you need.

Sacrifice isn't easy and it does suck that you have to search/seek the health foods in grocery stores while all the good tasting stuff is right in our faces. I don't like eating chicken breast and veggies, but I do. I hate the taste of tuna but eat it 5x a week. Food is about fuel for the body, not pleasure. If I sacrifice during the week by eating the right fuel, I can have the pleasure of good tasting food worked into my diet as well. I will never totally give up pizza, beer and burgers. I just know that I can't eat them every night, even if those are definitely what tastes way better.

I have offered my services to help a few members here try to get started down the right path. Guidance over the internet isn't easy as I have no the actual starting point of these guys. However, it really is simple to be healthy and lose weight. I am not talking about having 6-pack abs, I don't have those either. It is about a body weight where you are comfortable and can maintain a healthy, active life style.

I really hope those who are struggling with weight can figure out a simply system that works for them. It seriously is VERY simple. Sacrifice isn't easy, not even for me after all these years. Adjust your mind set and get the positive mental reward of changing your physical appearance, which will adjust your mental attitude as well.

Sorry if I offended anyone but I am very passionate simply because I know the sacrifices I make to live healthy and wish others could realize that it isn't easy for anyone but IS very simple to do.


/Rico style post.
From our conversations I know this about you, and back you 100%. You get fired up about it because you give a shit. That's not a bad thing, brother. You have the ability to do good in the world.

Welp, use it against me later, I don't give a ****. I lost 185lbs and put damn near every bit back on in the last 3 years. Went from running 40 miles a week, to drinking a gallon of bourbon a week. I've been trying hard to break the chains of drinking, but it's really easy to do after a long days work. Never drank in my life before I moved down here. Alcoholism runs in my family. Funny how life works. But I know it's not a disease. It's a series of horrible ****ing choices. I'm searching for the willpower to break the ****ing chains.

How do you convince frugal people to buy better food when good food is unbelievably expensive? How do you convince people to stay on diets and exercise programs when: 1) they fail because they're not reading labels right; 2) they fail because they got suckered into some sham diet or exercise plan; 3) they fail because they don't have the money to pay for a trainer?

For example... I'm not a big fan of running. And I don't get people's obsession with it. If you can do it consistently, good for you. But too many people think that running an hour a day is the best way to lose weight. So much miseducation out there about how to keep yourself in good shape.
It may not be the best way to lose weight, but it's certainly better than sitting on your ass watching TV.

My generation didn't spend all day playing video games. We were outside doing something active, sunrise to sunset. Stickball, street hockey, touch football, tennis - hell, we made up games to play.

Sadly, it's my generation that is allowing obesity to become an epidemic among children. Buying the PS3 because everyone else has one, then allowing thier kid to sit on it for hours on end.

Going through the drive thru and feeding your kids garbage because you're in a hurry or because you can't say boo to your kid.

Instead of blaming "big food", people can take personal responsibility for their predicament and do something to change their habits. It's not going to happen overnight. Small steps can lead to big change.

That's what I love about you, bro. You're so ****ing honest.

So you've made some bad choices in the last 3 years. BFD.

You've done it before, (lost significant weight) and you'll do it again if you want to. Start small, break those chains, then power on.

Maybe its something in the water down there in the Ozarks. I drank like a fish down there too.

Like I said before, I just got tired of it and figured there was something more to life than getting drunk all the time. I didn't really have a plan as to how I would find that "something more". I just assumed it would be evident if I wasn't drunk all the time.

But whatever works for you, just move on to the next part of your life.

Did the kid ever get anything worse than a C after this rule was implemented? Not a chance.

I'm not saying it's morally right or wrong, but does it make the child because of it? Think about that for a second.

I have the blueprint. That's for sure. I don't mind putting myself out there on this board. If one person can relate and find some kind of comfort in knowing they're not alone in the world, that's good enough for me. We need to hook up this summer bro. I'm going to get up for a Cards game before the season is over. It's non negotiable.

I haven't gotten to the point that I'm ready to go down that road. I've been drinking for a short period of time, and feel I can do it with will power. I'm not opposed to it however if it becomes something I feel necessary.

If you guys would just eat an all protein diet and work out two hours every day, obesity would be eradicated.

I have three weeks off from September 13th to October 6th.

Let's make it happen. Set a date in that timeframe, and I'll be sure to set aside the company tickets.

I got faith in ya! Just a matter of replacing one habit for another.


For instance meth instead of alcohol will kill 2 birds with one stone.

I haven't gotten to the point that I'm ready to go down that road. I've been drinking for a short period of time, and feel I can do it with will power. I'm not opposed to it however if it becomes something I feel necessary.

I went for 7 years and was sober for that long.

I enjoyed it. Met some nice people and made some nice industry contacts too.

You wouldn't believe who is in AA. Hell Ringo was in town one week and kept coming to our club.

But in the end it's up to you.

I started feeling like I wanted a drink again and went out and did more "research" as they call it.

Life is definitely much better sober and cheaper too.

****ing drinking is expensive.

That's funny. The only other history I have with heavy drinking was in 1999...when I lived in Branson. That was only 6 months though.
