But I have a slow metabolism.  But I have big bones.  But I don’t have time.  As trainers, we’ve heard them all.  For the majority of our clients, the biggest fight that they ever have is with their weight.  And for most of them, the problem isn’t keeping weight on, but taking it off.  Whether it’s 5 lbs or 50, the wheel of excuses never ends.  But the overwhelming majority of it comes back to one indisputable fact.  I EAT TOO MUCH AND IT’S ALL GARBAGE!  People bury their stress, hurt, angst and even happiness in food.  We have a deep emotional connection to our food in this society.  It’s been rooted deep in our psyche since birth.  Food isn’t fuel, food is feelings.  The only problem with this mentality is that most people become unable to leash the beast at some point.  they can’t re-harness the ability to control what and how much goes into the system, and THAT, my friends, is what causes obesity and weight problems.  Your bones aren’t too big.  Your metabolism can be adjusted.  You have the same 24 hours that everyone else has.  Whether you choose to make the most of it is up to you.  Stop overeating and eating your feelings.  Be healthy, be happy and be under control.
