Nobody is bashing you. If I were to bash you, I'd say you were a whining, self-indulgent, lazy, slob, and I did nothing of the sort. I pointed out that you are self-defeating in your lack of innovative effort and that your ongoing whining is not the mental attitude that a winner has, nor wants to be around. If that hit a soft spot with you, GOOD. Something needs to get you off the couch, and into motion.
Get off your pity pot, and get into some proper thinking.
When I go to make weight, at 4:00 p.m., the night before a show, I know that if I go number 1, I'll drop 0.8 pounds every time I do. I drop about 1.5 pounds to 3 pounds every time I go number 2.
Sometimes, in the mornings, I'll be ten pounds LESS than any the evenings.
My point is that all you every time is whine, and had you gone poddy a couple of times, you could have said you lost 1.6 pounds. In the big picture 0.8 pounds is a healthy piss...and it's all that is, and you were whining about it. Stop it with all your negative, self-defeating, attitude, and get the show on the road.
You relish in the attention and in the whining, and what you should have done was this: If I'm slighty above where I'd like to be, last thing, before bed, I put on my cell phone and walk the shoreline of the lake (I've done this at 4:00 a.m. in the morning many times), and I'll jam on my tunes or watch VCAST as I burn out an extra 45 minutes. If it's a tough day, I'll walk the face of the dam (Lewisville Lake) so that it's like walking stairs, only outside. (My trainers hate that because they worry about me getting hurt outside.)
What you should have done instead of whining was the following:
"Only dropped 0.8 on the scale, but, I know that's just one good piss, but, nonetheless, I decided I'd turn it up a notch and I added a 30 minute walk before bed. I'm sure hoping. Let me keep you all here up to date."
Unless you change your mindset, Chaser, you'll continue to fail. Stop it. Do what I said in the paragraph above.
My reality checks aren't meant to pick on you, but, rather, they are designed to get you to engage in proper thinking, instead of the shit poor attitude you have now. No wonder you're such a mess.
My reality checks hit a soft spot, I know, but, you have to accept that and instead of transforming your failure and directing it at me, you need to say, "Chuck, you're right, it's just 0.8 pound. Let me step it up. I know you're right, and I'm stepping up, TODAY! I'm sick as hell of being fat, and I'm going to work hard, and smarter!" That's the mentality of a winner. Humans are capable of SO much.
You need to start thinking like a winner, instead of a whining cry baby.
Now, get one front in front of the other, and start walking.
I have big shoulders, and I'm very secure. Lash out at me as much as you'd like. I can take it, and, in the end, if you're the better off, we've succeeded in our goal of taking you back to being a regular person.
If you think I'm ugly, that's fine. You're not the sort I'd like to date. I can handle a few insults from you in the process of saving your life. NOW, get with the program!
I take comfort in my 9.9 rating. Understand, though, if you just get your head in the right place, you can go there, too.
