Dr Oz: He has half a dozen books and a show about how to get and be healthy. (Can’t say she doesn’t have sound medical advice)
Dr Phil: She can talk and share her fears/insecurities with him. (Can’t use emotional problems as the excuse)
Bob Green: Personal Trainer she has been with for years. She has helped him as a co-author a number of books on weight loss. (Guess she hasn’t read them in a while)
Art Smith: Her celebrated personal chef for 10 years, who has also penned cookbooks and weight loss books. (No blaming the fat on fast food and drive thru’s)
She has a team of people that can cook, prepare, advise, exercise with her….still Oprah is fat.
Oprah preaches to millions about health, happiness and must have’s and people listen…even though she has proven to the world a dozen times over that her fat loss plans fail.
She recommends weight loss products and books and millions flock to the stores and buy these things because Oprah recommends it! But Oprah’s still fat.
She has drive and determination-she has built an incredible empire…but she is still fat!
Why is it that in the weight loss world people are ok with buying a product or service and not get any results from it and not be mad as hell??
In today’s day and age of transparency and customer service why is it that people will whip out their phones and complain about a bad meal or bad customer service from a retailer but when they go to a diet centre or buy an infomercial type product they buy it knowing and almost expect it not to work?
Is it because even the all and mighty powerful Oprah can’t even succeed at controlling her weight so why or how could the average everyday mom/dad?
It could be because the disclaimers on the products, pills, lotions potions and equipment always say, “Not typical results.” or “Results may vary.” Maybe it’s because the marketers of this ‘stuff’ can sell ice to people living at the south pole and we just get sucked into the hype.
Why is Oprah fat? Why do we spent millions of dollars on kack (my word) that leaves us worse off than before?
There is only one answer…it’s the decisions we make that keep us where we are and in many cases, leave us worse than we started. It’s the decision that I’ll take a day off today and work extra hard on my exercise tomorrow. Or, just one small bag of chips is ok.
When you make the decisions that are in your best interest (that’s your part) and base them on sound and solid information (that’s my part) you can’t lose.
So, do you have a reason…an excuse. What have you done that has given you short term success, but long term loss (or gain in this case). Let me know, I can help, I want to help and I will hold you accountable. Maybe that’s another problem Oprah has…who is she accountable to?
Let me know your thoughts.
