The Blame Game

Whose fault is it that you’re out of shape?
If you go by what you hear in diet ads then you believe that it’s anyone’s fault but yours.
The big diet companies think that if they put the blame on you then you wouldn’t buy their bogus pills. So they put the blame on your cortisol levels, your modern diet (i.e. fast food), or your busy schedule instead of where it belongs—which is squarely on your shoulders.
Sure, you have obstacles that get in your way – your schedule, your job, your kids, the weather, your knee injury from college…but ultimately you have the body that you accept.
I’m going to repeat that so it will really sink in.
You have the body that you accept…But you can change it.
Embracing the blame for your current weight is not a bad thing – it’s empowering.
Think about it. If it really wasn’t your fault, if it really was due to a long list of variables that you have zero control over, then you’d be stuck. You’d have no way to change.
