people need to get outside and fucking do something. if the effort put into all these diet pills and get skinny quick schemes was put forth into education for families, only good nutritious food in schools, and slowly weeding out fast food corporations excessive advertising brainwashing our kids, maybe we wouldn't be obese. people are so unmotivated to put down the tv remote, log off the internet, or shut off the xbox and physically do something for like an hour. it makes me sick knowing that when i was younger i was always outside running around with my friends, playing sports, and just being a kid. kids don't leave the house anymore. my neighborhood used to be crawling with kids everywhere and we all knew eachother. i drive around now and the streets are completely empty.
a little less than a year ago i was at my heaviest 248 pounds and was completely disgusted with myself. i eat right and i exercise 45 minutes to an hour everyday and i'm in the best shape of my life. all it took was discipline, a low fat diet, and a solid year of cardio and weight training. it's amazing what you can attain when you get committed and really set your mind to something. you can do anything. too many americans are afraid of the hard work and discipline dieting and exercising requires.
