Push That Tush -- Be Brave and Determined

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

emoticon PUSH THAT TUSH -- Be Brave and Determined.

I am not impressed by the size 4, A cup kid in a tube top doing jumping jacks in aerobics class and nothing jiggles. I get inspired by the plus size gal who is huffing and puffing while sweating bullets, giving it her all, trying to workout towards her goals. NOW THAT’S INSPIRATION.

At 5’11” barefoot, I stand out in a crowd.
I have NEVER been invisible…I used to wish I was.
Even when I was less than 20% overweight, I was battling self esteem issues because of negative comments hurled at me …
and that was enough to stop me from doing things.
So when I see the pictures of these people,
who despite a few stares and comments …
put themselves out there bravely, and with tremendous force of will….
I SEE COURAGE.

It takes STRENGTH to put aside the fears and face life …
because there Are a few mentally challenged idiots in the world…
but they are nothing compared to the demons we carry in our heads.
When it comes to taking care of yourself and living as fully as we can,
NOTHING should stop us from going out there and doing it.
The REWARDS of doing something good for yourself, are just too great to pass up.

Take Charge, Take Control, Be Brave and Determined.

And to the morons who cross our paths….BITE ME

  i love it! no matter how we look at it, hearing others' negative talk encourages negative self-talk and discourages the healthy activities that enable us to change. it is really hard to tell ourselves not to give up no matter what we look like or feel like. i'm not particularly large, but i do get discouraged when i am too slow or too weak in my own mind and i feel like people are laughing at my short-comings. then i remember to tell myself i can't make progress if i don't start somewhere!

    I liked it but could have done without the "there Are a few mentally challenged idiots in the world" comment. Lumping jerks with the mentally handicapped is an insult to the handicapped. emoticon

    Very inspiriting. I have been on this program four weeks. I have lost a few pounds,but I have learned allot . I hated myself now I have learn to love me. I stepped on the scales this morning only down to ounces from last week, this at first discouraged me, but now I get to measure myself tomorrow, and if it's not changed, that's not going to do anything but motivate me to try harder emoticon emoticon . God bless you,and all my sp friends and sp people.

  Hi SHERYLDS,

I weighed more at the age of 14 than I do now at the age of 54. And it feels like you have been describing my past to me...now, if only i had the guts to bite back the morons who crossed my path at that time!! You are one gutsy girl and I am very proud of you, my SP friend!

    It is hard not to allow negative comments to affect you. I still get them, and it always surprises me, because I am an adult now. I always assumed that middle school BS went away when you hit 20... apparently some people are still in that grade school mentality.

    One of my team members suggested I check out your Push That Tush blogs. I love them! You have 'real people' in them with great motivation, inspiration and challenging too - everything I need all rolled into one. Thank you for helping and for sharing. I know that I can do this. I just have to 'Push MY Tush."
