I was having a conversation with one of our members the other day and a very interesting concept came up.  This person has lost over 100lbs in our program and is working extremely hard to continue that progress.

The concept we were talking about is the you have to love yourself for who you are movement. It's a great movement and there is certainly an argument for all the body shaming and self loathing that is out there.  That being said, I'm going to paraphrase here but this is what he basically said....

It's great to love yourself, but there comes a point in time when you have to realize that if you're in the situation he was in, you are unhealthy.  There's nothing healthy about being a few hundred pounds over weight.  You have to recognize that it's a health issue and something needs to be done about it.

At the risk of being controversial and not really striving to be, I have to agree with him.  There is nothing wrong with loving yourself but also wanting to improve your condition. You have to toe the line, it's not a good thing to hate yourself. (I've been there, I almost committed suicide once) On the flip side though it's also not a good thing to be complacent with where you are at.

It's my belief that there is always room for improvement for anyone, but if you have a lot of body fat to lose, for health reasons alone it's important to work on doing something about it.  The first step to fixing a problem is admitting that there is a problem.

Again, I'm not trying to hurt anyone's feelings. I think we should love who we are, and not submit to self loathing, but I do believe we should also strive for improvement of our situation.  This holds especially true if you are at an unhealthy amount of body fat, or cardiovascular health, etc.  It's important to take care of your self.

If you need someone who understands what you're going through and the struggles involved.  Give us a call.
