I HATE Richard Simmons!!!

Sunday, March 22, 2009

Not really... I love him. I just hate how he looks straight into the camera in the middle of some especially tough move and he tells me (ME!) that he knows it's hard but I can do this and I just burst into tears. What kind of weird voodoo does that man have over me? I swear, I cry every time. But I have always had a special place in my heart for him since the first time I ever read any of his books and started getting his videos. I love that man. I never tried to follow him online or anything, and only recently did I find out he still has his Cruise To Lose going on. I follow all kinds of exercise plans, Denise Austin, The Grind, Jorge Cruise, but Richard...he's The One. I do good on the others, I'm not doubting their ability to make me break a sweat, but Richard makes me believe that I can make a change, he makes me believe that I can lose weight and I can keep it off and that life will go on if I don't eat the Big Mac (plus all the sides, Super Sized, or whatever they call it there) and that the day may actually be better because I didn't eat it. So thank you , Richard. I am going to make it through this day and I am going to make wise choices and I know that I am worth it. I love me a little more because of you.

    I'm the same way from the first time I"discovered him" back in 86 saw his deal a meal. I carried those cards every where. And then when he was doing the work outs on t.v I was there doing them as well. He can make you cry just by the way he focuses at you. Hes talking to you personally. I enjoy his sweatin to the oldies now when i get the chance and a dvd. Dont own any but can rent and borrow them.

    Aww! This is so sweet. I've never been a fan of Mr. Simmons, and I really resist ANY trainer in any video. But, I'm so glad that he's there to inspire you. I'm so happy for you!

    I agree. It also means a lot to know that he was once out of shape and overweight too at one time, and he has done all the hard work to get where he is today. He is proof that anybody can do it. I believe he genuinely wants to help people.
