Just a little more....
For those who I may have offended with my editorial, I am truly sorry. This was not my intention. However, I do feel that sometimes we need to be a little blunt. That sometimes there are too many excuses, not enough truths. It is hard. It will be hard, but the benefits are so important. When I talk about eating right, it is not for the sole purpose of being "skinny". That is not the point. I know that appearances are not what makes the person. My statement of the overweight Americans is not referring to the extra 20-30 pounds that accumulate over the years, or maybe even a little more. I am talking about gross neglect of the body. Even people that eat really healthy can have extra pounds, likewise, many skinny people are some of the unhealthiest! I am pushing eating for your health, not getting into a size 2. I have repeatedly stated that this is a gradual change to be healthy . Those that are ready can read what they want and incorporate what they want. I am sorry but I write for those who want to hear. I write so that you will not be ignorant, that you cannot blame your upbringing for how you eat now. I want to give you the information so that you CAN be in control. I am a blunt person, I know that this will strike a nerve, however, I do have compassion, that is why I write. If I didn't ,why would I spend my time typing with no benefit to myself?
