End Fat Talk


Why is it so hard to stop dropping the f’ bomb?  The season is well within it’s rights to encourage it. People are learning to just accept it. School systems downplay it. Ever look in the mirror and see the above picture, what did you say? Who makes the final decision to end…okay, I’ll just say it, FAT talk?

With trick or treating right around the corner, there are mountains of candy to be found: a party on every block, in every business plaza and some parking lots. Problems tend to occur when there is excess, back to back splurges leaving the tricks, coming upon thanksgiving and then, ’tis the season’. Ugh! It’s like gaining weight during this time is supposed to happen. Many plan their lives and workouts around it, “Oh, I’m going to run this marathon in the morning so I can eat what I want”…for two and a half months?! “I’m just going to go ahead and buy personal training in January because the holidays are coming up” or another excuse I’ve heard, “Well, I’m already FAT no use in holding back now that’s why I have you to workout with.” My thoughts, Do you want me to train you for the rest of your life? Believe it or not every personal trainer is not just after your money. Me personally, I’d like to teach you to be your own boss in health and fitness by helping you to learn your body, to gauge your moods for optimal results from exercise and to monitor your body’s responses to foods. Yes, this does take time. Working out now seriously for 13 years, I still come upon helpful findings. Let’s see what you can take on to help your trainer make this process that of a reward system driven by results.


Schools typically give candy rewards daily, kids on average, accumulate about 3 hours of vigorous activity weekly. While watching Fox 5 News here in Atlanta, Ga it was recently reported that, Vigorous Exercise has been Found, through a study, to Boost Kids Test Scores! Yet, childhood obesity is at an all time high (see my blog: Are Your Kids Really That Important). Michelle Obama’s ‘Let’s Move’ campaign not only encourages kids to move; but also, it enforces healthier lunches, which is great! Obviously Mrs. Obama cannot live with you, as she has a family too. With all the environmental influences, how can moms control what goes in their children mouths? Ensure that vigorous activity becomes incorporated as a family lifestyle, like brushing your teeth. How much more would young ones enjoy family activities everyday; they need somewhere to displace their energy, why not do it exercising?


Who makes the final decision? With the holiday season here, joyous and anxious times arise often, causing the fight or flight hormone to increase cravings of salts, sugars and carbohydrates alike. What can be done about this? Now is the time to choose. It is a hard pill to swallow but limit the days a week the family will consume these foods over the school breaks and festivities. Tips for moms: Consider making familiar workout regimes whether it be family walks, bicycling, jogging, group fitness classes, water aerobics, or zumba choose what goes well with your family’s fitness level (seek your personal trainers suggestions) and make it fun! Failing to plan is viewed as planning to fail. Planning can also reduce the name calling.


Only say to yourself what you would say to your kids. Why do we call ourselves fat? Is it not enough that children go to school and encounter bullies or suffer through reckless comments on the internet? A courageous woman appears on the Dr. Oz show admitting calling herself fat to her friends 1. because she feels they probably think it and 2. in order to “beat them to the punch” so to speak. Question, “What happens when your friends give you compliments?” She replies, “I shoot them down.” Well, now that’s someone I’d want to hang around! No. Doctor suggests, “just say thank you.”  If there is the thought to say it, then why not change it? Start by saying, I CAN. Finally, I’ve been doing this a long time, degree in exercise science, success consistently reigning top in one of the largest fitness companies in the nation, combining more than 7 years of client success stories and find; it is usually all in the state of mind. Today, the family fitness planning campaign begins to stop use of the F’ bomb therefore, putting an End to Fat Talk.
