Thanks to the mass media, marketing and advertising companies in the USA, we as Americans are always depending on someone else to find the solution to our problems, Some look to tv characters for advice on how to get fit, eat right and stay thin. Others order pre packaged foods, because they can't cook and portion control food themselves. It is alarmingly disgusting to see how many Americans dont' realize you are the pilot in your life. No one else is flying the plane! Whether you want to lose weight, get in better shape, tone up, compete, whatever our poison, you have the power to do it! Not the celebraties, not the athletes, no one in the world can make it happen for you, except you! So many times, I hear people whine about how they want to eat right but don't have time, or don't know how, or some other lame excuse. So, when the see the commercials for the latest miracle pill, or celebrity diet, they rush out and buy it! Thinking to themselves, this is going to be so easy, look how it worked for the Oscar award winning actress! Seriously now, get a grip. We all know famous people, or anyone in the spotlight, have trainers, personal chefs to aid them in staying slim. What gets me so fired up, is that we all have the abilities to do it ourselves. We don't need to depend on people telling us what to eat, or how much, take this pill, drink this juice! It's ridiculous! If we all just stepped back, and looked at it from a deeper level. an understanding of how much power we have as individuals will seep thru. No one needs to be told what to do by someone else. Everyone can learn to cook, eat healthy and exercise. It comes down to self control and self discipline. Someone you never met, but just because you see them on tv, and they seem like and honest, nice person says, hey, eat like me and you can look like this, doesn't mean you listen! You don't know them, they don't care about you and never will. When you buy whatever they are selling, that's money in there pockets, and that's all they care about. We need to take more pride in ourselves, and hold ourselves accountable for our own actions. We are poisoned everyday, but the media, selling us nonsense, convincing us that we are weak, and we can't do it on our own, just for a money ploy. That's all we are to them, is a money ploy. Please have more respect for yourself, and take more pride in your health and body, to know not to buy into it. You are in deed capable of doing it on your own. It takes time, it takes some getting used to, it takes hard work and discipline. But, it can be done, by none other than the pilot with the controllers.
