Nice tips - not sure about the word Fatitude - sounds a little pathological and not too positive. How about having a Slimitude? Or a Slenderitude. Or even better: a Sizzlin' Hotitude :-)
Def needed to read that!
The author had some great Idea's but the constant use of the word "fatitude" was annoying and demeaning.
This article has "Kay" written all over it!! I have a fatitude...that's why I'm here. Great article!!
This was a great article. I saw myself throughout the entire article. I will save this article.
A brilliant article, these are the messages I've had to work hard to include as my natural thinking every day, but I'm finally happy & confident again! Takes time, but your life will change like you can't imagine.
This was a great article - will save to re-read often. Thanks!
Thanks for sharing
Thank you for this article. I really needed it today!
Great article. Definitely one I am going to reread.
I have always said, the right attitude is a positive one. That is why I was able to go from 335 to 145 in less than two years. And choice, the choice is always yours. NO one makes us eat any food . We have the choice. It's all in your mind. What do you want more to be healthy and weigh less or have a moment of pleasure by eating some food.? A taste that doesn't last only creates more fat for you to cope with.
Say good by to the word can't. Say hello to I CAN. And set out to do it. It's all with in your capabilities. But you and only you control your destiny.
Be strong, stay positive.
I found your article to be an "eye opener" for me. Thanks!
I have a "fatitude" attitude, but working on making it a "winning" Attitude!
Great article, I'm adding this to my favorites and posting clips on my page as a reminder
Good article, something to definably think about. Thank you
Finally an article that doesn't pander and baby people. This is a great motivational article and pointed out to me exactly why I've failed in the past and why I will continue to succeed now. Thank you!
