    Thank you, Annette!

    Are you tired of being judged?...or, watched?...of people thinking you're weak and stupid?
    That's the mentality of a person in a diminished and weakened state of mind and body. People don't judge, watch or think you're weak and stupid. That's what you think when you look in the mirror. That's the penance for letting it slide...for taking the easy way...for feeling sorry for yourself...for giving up on you...

    The process for losing weight is the same for everybody. It's not about drugs. It's not about fad or hormones. It's not about your metabolism or childhood...&, it has nothing to do with willpower, either.

    It's all about your inability to tune out the irrelevant. As Annette says, it's all mental.
    1. Stop the self-directed pity and trash talk...
    2. Do some homework...
    3. Tunnel your vision...
    4. See only the goal...
    5. Then, get the f%#k out of your way and stake what's yours


    And, if you can't find the "motivation", then, become the motivation that others are so desperately looking for.
