A Serious Post That Lost Its Way

I’m not going to be happy until I lose this weight, and even then I’m not going to be happy. I’m not going to be satisfied–I mean really good and satisfied–until you lose this weight, too.

I read somewhere that repetition is the key to learning, so I’m going to tell you something, but I really want you to remember it, so I’m going to repeat it over and over. Now, I know you don’t have a super long attention span, so you won’t stay with me if I just repeat the same message over and over, so I’m going to change it up a little each time. My hope is that, if you hang with it, the basic premise of the message will soak through your thick skull. Hey, I may not know what I’m doing, but at least I’m trying…


Rise up and meet this day with courage and conviction, my friend. You’ve had a bumpy road of it up until now, but circumstances are about to change for the better. Why? Because you are going to change them. You’re going to buckle down and figure out some way to wrestle these disturbing and destructive demons to the ground. You’re going to start making some serious strides toward your goals and you’re going to start right away. There’s no time like the present, baby, and the present just pulled in front of your house right this second. Shift it into high gear and let’s finally get this party started for real. I’m tired of reading about your two-steps-forward, one-step-back tango… get going and show me, show us all, that you’ve got what it takes to make some magic happen. You know what you need to do, but apparently you needed somebody to give you a gentle nudge in the right direction. Here it comes: WHAT THE F*CK ARE YOU WAITING FOR? GET GOING ALREADY! Sorry to yell, but this stuff works me up like nobody’s business.

  4. There was a moment there when I felt like I was being motivated to kick ass and lose weight by the Swedish Chef.

    ...may it have been one of the greatest moments of my life?

    Yes.

    Yes it just may have been.

  11. I love this post and plan on posting the message where I can see it. A daily reminder is sometimes just what I need to remember what I'm doing and remind myself why I'm important.

    Thanks again.

  13. In the beginning, I thought, "OMG, a post from Jack with no jokes or weighty wit. Just seious, heartfelt motivating words." Then I read on, and on, and on.

    Ha -- still love the message though. Thanks for being here with us Jack! You're an amazing guy. I wonder how many people struggling with their body and fitness issues get to smile when they read your latest blog entry?

    No one can take this weight off but me. The hard work is 100% mine-- but the blogs, in particular yours, give us other people to laugh with along the way.

    Thanks for the time you put into this. I greatly appreciate it. xo

  14. Did you say: WHAT THE F*CK ARE YOU WAITING FOR? GET GOING ALREADY"? I thought I read that somewhere in there! ;-)

    You are just CRAZY!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Hmm... not sure I get it.

    Maybe you need and English-to-Slacker translation?

    :)

    I'm actually still laughing about the Chris Isaak rewrite. I totally loved that song and listened to it hundreds of times, so I could totally hear him crooning your lyrics.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yep, no matter how you say it the message is clear-WHAT THE F*CK ARE YOU WAITING FOR? GET GOING ALREADY!
    Thanks for the reminder-I need to get going already! What the f*ck am I waiting for?

    ReplyDelete

  25. I really felt like you were talking to me. I have been doing the two step forward, one step back tango and I'm sick of it so here's to me "getting going already" *smile*. Thanks for the kick in the pants lol.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Daily meditations do work, I know I did them in the past and occassionally still do when I need a good kick in the pants, jolt me out of "poor me" syndrome!
    I love your positive attitude, I can feel it all the way from here, Edmonton, Alberta that is!! :-)

    In the words of someone famous or of importance... "Do one thing a day that you are afraid of"... then see what happens next!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Good Lord, how do you have so much time on your hands?

    ReplyDelete
  28. So what are you really trying to say here? Rather than beat around the bush maybe you should just say it?

    I mean really... what are you waiting for? Just say it already!

    Sorry I didn't mean to yell, but I have to or you wouldn't hear it over the sound of how cool I am.

    I stepped back last week. I let down myself and failed to inspire others... I feel bad about it... but hopefully bad enough to not do it again.

    Taking two steps forward then a step to the side to call a taxi is just the Foolsfitness way!-Alan

    ReplyDelete
  41. You are having way too much fun on this blog.
    I'm not sure you're supposed to have fun while losing weight. Sounds like it's very dangerously into cheerfulness around here, my friend. Next thing you know, there will be pictures of big pink fluffy unicorns, and after that there's no hope.
