“All fat people want is an excuse but fatties have the one thing disabled people don’t have. They have choice. Nobody’s forcing them to shovel food in their faces.” – Katie Hopkins Katie Hopkins has recently gained 50 pounds to prove that there are no excuses with weight loss. The star of The Apprentice and a TLC documentary about her weight loss/gain, Katie feels that obese people are lazy and it is extremely easy to lose weight. So we wanted another perspective. Tony Posnanski is known on the Internet as a weight loss inspiration. He was featured in Huffington Post, CNN, and Yahoo for his courageous 220-pound weight loss, which he has kept off since 2008. Or so we thought. We recently found out that he has gained close to 50 pounds this year. Of course, we thought it might be a publicity stunt. Of course, Tony is a “no […]

Of course, you did not mean to insult others. I believe you. I mean, you know that few people have your body and many people workout and eat just like you do. I know, most people are just sensitive. I think the term is pansies. Most people cannot take the truth. You know, because if a mom does not have your body, she must be chilling on the couch. Your life is fitness. Some people have other things in their lives as […]

I remember looking in the mirror for my holiday party. Usually, I am not excited to go, but this year I was. I lost 70 pounds this year. I always wore pants or blouses in sizes that started with two. Everyone told me I should dress up. This holiday party I was going to surprise everyone. People have come up to me and asked if I lost weight. They knew I had. My co-workers have seen me eat healthier foods. They knew I was working out. I have not bought new clothes, so I looked frumpy at work. Well, my co-workers were in for a surprise. I bought a size 12 dress. I never wear dresses. This black dress looked great on me. I even got heels to match. I remember looking in the mirror. I remember being proud of myself. The dress went a little above my knees. It […]

“My table wants to see you.” In 2009, I was promoted to managing partner for an Italian restaurant in Maitland, FL. I was a long time chef there and finally had my chance to shine as the big boss. I also made the decision to lose weight. I was over 400 pounds for most of my career there. Then in 2008 I made the decision to lose weight. I lost over 220 pounds. When the server told me that a table wanted to see me it did not seem like a big deal. I was sure that the food was cold or the service was slow. It rarely was a fun conversation but necessary. When I looked at the table that wanted to see me I noticed that I recognized the guy. It was Marc Mero. I saw him in the restaurant numerous times. He is kind of a local […]

I have been married for 11 years now. My brother has been married for over 15 years. My parents have been married for over 50 years and my in laws will be celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary this year. Today I heard about “Divorce Parties“. A big lavish party celebrating divorce. A celebration of a marriage that went sour. Drinking and eating after signing a lot of papers. Believe it or not, I agree with these parties. I do not think people should stay together if they are not happy. I do not think a woman should be with a man who hits her and a man should not be with a woman who cheats on him. I think that it is easy to say that marriage is a life long commitment but much harder to accomplish if things are not going right. I am not saying that divorce should […]
