I have lost 100lbs twice in my life.

I have lost over 40lbs five separate times.

I have gone from being extremely unhealthy out of shape and sick to healthy, happy and successful more times than I can remember.

I learned this a long time ago and it is something that works every single time without fail.

First, let me make this clear.

When eating oreo’s or cake or other things that are bad for you do you spend days researching the best way to eat said pleasurable delight or do you shove that crumbly sweet goodness in your mouth and thank God it was invented?  NO, probably not.

When busy doing nothing while lying on the couch watching TV, for the 100th hour that week, did you research the best way to lay still and shut your brain down while watching the Kardashians? NO, you are not an idiot.

So, you have spent zero time researching how to get fat and out of shape, but somehow you made it, you did it you are fat and out of shape.

Its amazing right?  How could it be?  “I didn’t even google how to become fat and tired and depressed it just happened.”  We say to our selves.

It is not amazing, it simply is the truth of the secret I am about to share with you about getting in shape.  If you are smart, then you probably already figured it out.

The Secret To Getting in Shape and Finding Happiness!

Alright, here it is.  After years of losing hundreds of pounds going back and forth between fat and in shape I discovered the secret that works for every human being alive.

Stop reading this shit and get started moving!!!

Why do we feel the need to do so much freaking research into getting healthy, it is a simple process that we have made so complicated.

You do not need:

  • Protein Powder
  • diet pills
  • expensive gym memberships
  • certified personal coaches
  • waist trimming belts
  • diet books
  • diet blogs
  • exercise blogs

You do not need:

  • To figure out the molecular structure of a Fat cell
  • To starve yourself
  • To set goals
  • To get motivated
  • To get inspired


Your goals are killing you.  Your thoughts and ideas are killing you.

You can’t see past your perfect idea of looking just like someone else.

We forget so quickly how fun and easy moving is.  How enjoyable eating healthy can be.  It is amazing what happens to a persons mood and mind when they stop feeding it sugar and causing insane amounts of hormones to go flying through your body.

We have allowed ourselves to believe that getting in shape was so difficult and getting fat so easily.

Here is the truth, neither is hard or easy they are both simple processes that we do not need to try and figure out.

Stop making life so complicated.  Oreo’s taste good and make me feel good immediately.  That is why I eat them and that is why I get fat.

Exercise is sweaty and sometimes painful immediately but makes me feel great later.  That is why I want to avoid it.

Stop avoiding the things that make your life better for the things that make right now only marginally more enjoyable.

If you want the secret to getting in shape, start moving and eating better.  Stop believing that it is rocket science, it’s not.


You are a Human being, that needs to become a Human Doing.

So that’s it. There is your secret.

When you realize that Truth has been the secret to life all along, you realize that you are on the right path.

So get moving, stop making excuses.  If you want to be in better shape then just do it, man.

No guru or textbook or exercise program is going to work for you if you don’t work for yourself.

I am a writer, a storyteller, a yarn-spinning freakazoid. My life is full of two things today, lessons and blessings. I write fiction mostly but I also love to write about my life and the things I go through on a daily basis. Writing it out inspires and motivates me and that's why I do it. Plus if it does that for me maybe it will for someone else too.

  1. We are in a society that is thriving more and more on immediate gratification, hence why the obesity epidemic is on the rise. We are going into a second generation that feeds off quick, satisfying, blurbs of things, food being one of them. Combine that with a sedentary, indoor lifestyle and it’s a recipe for disaster. Like other things we know, the solution is simple, but not easy. It’s a life overhaul that has to be done one step at a time. Maybe start with this week I’m going to cut out soda and other sugary drinks and walk every other day for a half hour. Trying to do everything all at once can be incredibly overwhelming and is a set up for a failure that people might not come back from because it’s too hard.
