This really has been going in my mind for the past couple days. I'm a big Jillian Michaels fan and listen to her podcasts and this really stuck out to me. <BR> <BR> Say you are driving down the road and get a flat tire. Do you run out and slash all the other three tires because you can't drive your car? Or do you get your tire changed and go along your way? When you look at it this way it doesn't make sence to slash your other tires does ...
