There’s an Elephant in the Room
I am always heck-a-careful about this.
When you’re overweight and unfit, someone drawing attention to that feels like a punch in the face.
Rude. Hurtful. You can’t ignore it.
It’s not like you don’t know that you’re out of breath climbing the stairs, or you get undressed in the dark.
I had a conversation with my completely beautiful eldest daughter yesterday.
She sent me a photo of how completely CRACKING her figure is (she’s always looked great anyway) but she has recently got herself into the most, ‘front cover of Vogue’ type shape.
Here she is.
Good genes, I reckon 🙂
Anyway she has done all this whilst also being in the 3rd year of a Nursing degree.
Busy and exhausted doesn’t come close.
She did it by….following the same principals as our eating plan(low sugar, fresh foods, no diet nonsense)
and exercising REALLY regularly – In fact she contributed the healthy Brownie, Ice Cream and Chocolate Cake recipes on the site.
^^^^^^ I won’t lie – they are among everyone’s favourites!
And she offered to let me show you her before and after photos but that’s way too weird, and actually would only distract her from her studying by all the Hollywood producers knocking at the door! (Slightly biased)
Anyway she said: Mum do you tell people that you weren’t always a UK size 10?
Which is nurse-speak for : Do they know you had a big fat arse?
And I suppose I don’t. Because it has been so long now, I hardly remember. I would steer away from cameras but I will find something.
I was 34 when I started exercising really regularly, I was running a dance school before that, which sounds like exercise but you mainly say “5,6,7,8” and make sure people are pointing their toes)
You always got French Fancies (whoooo?????) and Sausage Rolls at competitions and exams.
38 when I really got to grips with food (Although I already KNEW what to eat)
And in my 43rd year….this is just how I do things now. Normal, no thinking, no diet, no special effort. Just what I do.
And I am happy with the bod. Not a Vogue cover, but not bad for my age. Doesn’t go wrong often.
So I had that conversation, then I started to listen one of the spectacularly clever (and potty mouthed) Paul Mort’s podcasts …
He said that when people argue with him over Marketing Methods (he is THE gooroo) he hears them out – then says “show me your bank statements”.
See – HIS bank statements are the kind we’d all like to open, “hooray the bank statement is here” said, not many people, ever.
And the people consulting with him are doing it…. because they are NOT GETTING THE RESULTS by other methods.
The fact that they think they know better than someone having sustained success is just stupid. Or arrogant. Or the result of everything they have had pitched to them in the past.
The Elephant in the room is that DESPITE the proof in font of them, thy STILL argue.
So I could do what my daughter suggested; dust off the bikini (I’ll suggest it to Claire, as well) take a couple of snaps and show you the effects of what we do.
And maybe…. open the same challenge to all the local Slimming Club leaders. (Who, I presume, are following their Company’s plan)
And then you can decide whether or not the proof of the pudding…. (freshly made with dates and cherries…..or vacuum packed with additives)
…Is in the eating.
Be fun wouldn’t it?
