Lose The Halloween Fat and Stop Being So Stupid

Did you partake in the fattest of all American holidays?

Well, maybe not the fattest.  We do have Thanksgiving, Christmas, 4th of July, Memorial Day, New Year’s Day and of course Wednesday to compete with Halloween as the fattest of all the fatties.

Regardless, did you partake?

Did you tell your kids they could only have 2 pieces of candy then put the rest away only to steal every piece of the good stuff after they went to bed?

Did you buy waaaay too much candy for trick-or-treaters and then become the Grinch who only lets the kids take one piece before saying their “Thank you’s”…begrudgingly… only so you can eat an entire bag of bite size Snickers bars over the weekend?

Good for you.

At least you admitted it and aren’t some stuck up nut bar who won’t give in to temptation every now and again and have some good treats to eat.




You can’t do that every damn weekend.

You can’t even do that every other weekend, or even once a month.

If you want to lose fat, you’ve got to learn to control that demon inside of you who tells you that it’s OK to eat a couple Snickers bars as a way to reward yourself for a hard workout.

Excuse me?

You’re going to work your butt off to get in shape and drop some of that blubber that hangs on your body only to “reward” your killer workout with something that will add that fat right back on?

Do you see the stupidity in such a thought?

Don’t get me wrong, you can reward yourself with a treat, just not regularly.

Make it once a week, not nightly or even every other night.

And for God’s sake, don’t make it a binge that leaves you feeling like someone just punched in you in the gut.

I don’t know what’s with this rant, but it felt good to get it off my chest.

I come across way too many people who rationalize their bad eating habits in that manner and it just drives me absolutely frickin’ crazy!

You can’t be stupid and expect to lose fat.

Sorry it doesn’t work that way.

OK, I’m done.

I promise I’ll be nicer tomorrow.

Or not, maybe I’m crossing my fingers while I write this…which is very difficult if you stop to think about it.

Have a great day!
