Confession number 1,395: I want to be thin. I have spent my entire life believing that I was super fat and wishing that I was thin. I think I might have been thin at one point, when I was in junior high and I was running for track nearly every day. I was kind of thin then. But even then, I didn’t believe that I was thin.
I look at women that can seemingly eat whatever they want and remain their same skinny size 4 and I wonder how they do it. Were they just blessed with a wonderful metabolism? Was I cursed by my father’s mother’s mother’s genes? Can I get out of this trend without having to eat only salad for the rest of my life?
I’ve had many failed fake diet attempts. I don’t want to go on a real diet because with most of them, as soon as you stop the ‘dieting’ you gain all that weight back and then some. I have tried eating better and I’m good at eating fruits and vegetables. But somehow, I can’t resist a jelly-filled donut. It’s sad.
It’s really too bad, but I’m too much of a wuss to go to hcg injections. I know that it can be dangerous, but hcg injections are a proven weight loss method. Instant results!
Like I said, though, I’m too much of a wuss.
I know that people have a lot in common, but they also have so much not in common. I mean people are unique psychologically, mentally, physiologically, etcetera, and so on. With that being said it would seem that medicines and foods would be bound to affect everyone differently. Take a diet pill or a injection like hCG shots – it may work great for you but not quite for your friend. I know it sounds a little crazy, but sometimes I feel like the simplest thing is to try everything for yourself and see how it goes. Just give it a shot.
Admittedly, I’m not one who is prone to risk when it comes to my well-being. I more conservative that way. I’ll do high-high-risk with other things. Like investments and the such, but I’m not going to do it when it might make me sick. Of course I don’t have any really unresolvable issues when it comes to my health at this point. So maybe I’m just not motivated. That’s probably the case. If I was struggling with something I’d probably try just about anything to get it done I’m guessing, the truth is, it’s hard to say until you are actually in the situation.

How do people become the “extras” on exercise videos? Is it a volunteer type of program, do they get paid for their sweat and tears? When you look at the physical results people can achieve by undergoing such programs, it really could go either way. I assume they are getting paid, but who knows, maybe some people really love the idea of trying a new exercise program and would enjoy volunteering.
When you look at some routines like the P90X workout program though, there must be some kind of screening process. That program is intense and people who complete P90X seem to undergo almost a complete transformation process. A person of average fitness ability can complete it, but the people who developed P90X are probably incredibly familiar with the intensity level of that workout and probably had some sort of method for choosing their exercise extras.
It would be kind of fun to be an extra for something like the P90X workout program. Since no one has ever done it before, you know you’re breaking ground and probably going to benefit from it as well. There is a definite sense of adventure in that. Very appealing, but probably not in the near future. For now, the exercise videos will have to do.
