I have workout clothes! Now I can workout.

Friday, January 05, 2018

So as I’ve stated my nephew is here, living in the apartment above the garage and he has an eating issue as well as a weight issue. We’re talking sneaking food, hiding food, lying about food. We’re talking I can hear him breathing hard when he’s just sitting still, has bad sleep apnea and a fatty liver and all sorts of other things from Being overweight. I’m not judging. I was there. Hell, I’m still there. I may have lost over 150 pounds but I still have food issues, still Consider myself to be overweight and still fight every day to not go back to 284 pounds. The point is, he said to me that he got workout clothes for Christmas so now he can workout. I laughed and said oh, now you can? He didn’t get it. Last night he was saying he was going to ask his mom for a pair of shoes so he can walk to the end of the road daily. (Our driveway is 600 Feet by itself and up hill So actually no small feat plus to The end of the road is also a ways) And he asked me what I thought and I just kinda unloaded. I said I think you don’t need them. I think you’re going to get them and like other things, like the Fitbit you just bought three days ago and aren’t wearing, it’ll go by the wayside. He’s like well you need good shoes to workout in. And although that’s not a stretch, you also don’t need nikes. I said I’ve lost more weight than you ever will, most likely. I’ve lost more than 150 pounds. Think about that. And now I’m going to tell you I did it all in my pajamas. No special clothes. No special shoes. Hell, right now I’m in my pajamas and slippers biking. Those who want this will do it And those who don’t will Wait for those magical Shoes that will Melt the pounds away, that will Give extra motivation. I know which one I am.

    Have coffee or tea together tell him what your fit goals are and what your doing to reach them may be he will ask you what he can do to get better.

    We don't need to be a stumbling block to him either. He probable feels hopeless and helpless. Try uplifting him ask him to go for a walk with you. Don't walk at your level but his. Say to him that was fun let's do it agin.

    I hear what you are saying but I also hear what he is saying. You are right he doesn't need everything to be perfect but maybe he needs someone to say I'll walk to the road with you. Come on
