Though entirely Irish I may be. :) Happy belated St. Patty's Day to everyone.
I actually got out of the house last night and it was nice. I went over to my sister's and she's now a converted fitday.com-aholic. This program just totally ROCKS. The control it gives you over your food and your weight loss process is priceless - and the best thing is it's free.
So much money is made off of the desperation of overweight people seeking those miracle cures or those helpful crutches, when we're all a bit like Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz. What we need we already have, it's just a matter of knowing that we have it, and putting it to use. I saw an ad the other day for a treadmill that comes with a CD that will program the treadmill to include inclines while playing music and having a cheerful voice tell you how well you're doing. For just four easy payments of $50. C'yah right! I get that for free just going out my front door and heading to the park.
The things I want to spend money on are things like new Pilates routines, because I know they work. Or maybe some more herbal supplements that help me feel better and my body work more like it should. I've been taking St. John's Wort for about a week now to try and shake that cloud of depression that fell on me last month, and I like the fact I can feel a difference. These are things I'll spend money on. More gimmicky equipment, no thanks.
I know what it takes to lose the weight, it's been in me all along.
