Weight loss starts with self discipline. We as a society has shirked our responsibility. Some obese people blame everyone else for their predicament i.e. fast food corporations. While it is true that this corporations have contributed to obesity, the real cause of obesity is lack of physical activity and indiscipline.
Central Florida we gotta lose some serious weight. I know some cases of obesity is genetic or sicknesses. But mostly obesity is caused by overeating and lack of exercise.
We cannot sue our selves to better health. We need to get off our lazy a**ses and exercise period.

He should read that Janelle Brown's blog. I knew she was massive, but her initial weigh in was 271. I would have thought her weight would be the same as Carnie Wilson's who weighed in at 300 before her gastric bypass.

I am so thankful i have never had to have surgery on my body. That's why I run or climb stairs and as a last resort would ride an exercise bicycle although it's a lot of effort to not go anywhere, especially if you crank the tension settings up. A treadmill is only useful to me to do intervals where you crank it up to add intensity. My only complaint is that it is too flat here.

The payoff is having your lover grab your ass when you walk by and tell you how cute it is.
