To Lauren, “Demand excellence and accept nothing less” is a phrase used in business. Bosses tell their employees that when they receive sub par work. CEO’s of companies tell this to their leadership team to motivate them. It is used to make people better and to expect others to be better. Sometimes I think that people do not know what excellence truly is. Today when I walked into your restaurant I knew it was going to be rough, or so I thought. I looked around and saw a lot of dirty tables. There was no host to greet us because she was writing down a drink order. In fact, every employee walked by us looking down. I know they noticed us. They just did not want another table to walk in. After a few minutes, you waved to us and told us we could sit down in your section, and […]

“Will die of a heart attack at age 36. Just be ready. It’s TERRIBLE what you promote to young people” – Shaun via Twitter “I’m fat and I don’t want to see that. There has to be a middle ground between “Size six is plus size” and “Arm fat rolls”.- Meghan via The Stir “Terrible. She is not a plus size model, she is a model for obesity… “– IZ Da Good via The New York Times Tess Munster is not oblivious to the world around her. She never was. She has heard the criticism. He has heard that she has a beautiful face. “If only” was her barrier to being beautiful. If only Tess lost weight. If only Tess were taller. If only Tess tried harder. As a teenager in Mississippi, she heard many people tell her that she was not pretty enough, skinny enough or tall enough to […]

This whole situation does not sit well with me. It is one of those stories that most people would not care about. It is one of those that the Internet takes out of proportion. It is one that will garnish comments like “Get over it,” and “Who cares…next!” But I believe in fairness. I believe that people and companies feel they can get things over the “little guy/gal” because no one will ever know. Well, I write based on what I believe. Laura Williams was excited to see that her blog was getting a few more views than usual yesterday. She noticed it because of the Google search Cauliflower “Chicken Nuggets”. She was thrilled. Or so she thought. She realized that The Doctors had a recipe for Cauliflower “Chicken Nuggets” on their show. They all talked about it as you can see below. In fact, one of the doctors even […]

Kai Hibbard’s story is not new. Although you might have seen it for the first time in recent weeks, she has been outspoken about the dangers and truths behind NBC’s hit “The Biggest Loser”. Kai was the 2006 runner-up, only losing to Erik Chopin, who lost over 200 pounds. Still, Kai lost 118 pounds (although the media says 121) and was the most celebrated female on the show at that time. She gave all of it up to tell her side of the story. She came out to tell the world about the horrible practices on The Biggest Loser. She said how she worked out all the time, barely ate and was not allowed to wear a shirt until she lost enough weight. No one listened. No one cared. So years later she is in the news again. The story has not changed at all. The story is, in fact, […]

“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 […]

Superabs- “I have a kid.” Tony- “I have two.” Superabs- I have a six pack.” Tony-“ Six pack??? HA!!!! I have a 24 pack… Dasani!” Superabs- I have “no excuses” and everyone else should as….. Tony- Let’s stop right there for a second… I get it Superabs. You are now part of the long line of fitness peeps that have to rely on insulting others to get attention. 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 […]
