I found this essay on a friend of a friend's Facebook page. It kind of cut right to the core for me. I cleaned up the grammatical errors (and inserted a few of my own I'm sure) and posted it here for all my many (0) readers to see. Oh yeah, and as a reminder to myself.
You're right. It is easier to eat pizza than to run on the treadmill. It's easier to turn to ice cream rather than other people for support. It's easier to say "Fuck this, I give up" than to say "Fuck this, I can do it".
So you know what? I’m not going to sit here and tell you day after day you can do this. If you don't believe you can, then you can't. That's the honest truth. You need to do this for you, and if you don't want it enough, then you sure as hell won't achieve it. So take the easy way out and remain unhealthy and continue to gain weight because you refuse to realize you are the only one hurting yourself or get up, get moving, make the right choices, not the easy ones, and take care of yourself.
I didn't say it would be easy. I said it would be worth it.
Ok then... Are you worth it Robin?
