I'm Sorry, Kermit the Frog

video

Why are there so many
blogs about weight loss
And how to live a future more fit?
Some have a vision,
Some offer great info,
And some are moronic (like Jack Sh*t)
So we set goals and some believe they can’t
Achieve it,
But I know they're wrong wait and see.

Someday we'll find it,
The Fitness Connection:
Healthy diet, exercise and me.

Who said that this journey
Would be quick and easy?
Just look how many failures there are.
You just gotta ignore that.
It’s your time– believe it,
And look what you’ve accomplished so far.

What's so surprising
That keeps us downsizing,
To be what we think we might be?

I think that we’ve found it,
The Fitness Connection:
Healthy diet, exercise and me.

It's time to come out of our shell.
Anything less would be tragic.

Have you been half committed,
And have you been stalled out?
I'm calling you out by name.
If you want the future that you’ve always
Dreamed of,
It’s time that you stepped up your game.
You’ve heard it too many times to ignore it,
There's something that we’re supposed to be.

Now that we’ve found it
The Fitness Connection:
Healthy diet, exercise and me.

  2. We sang this song when I was in third grade. Everyone said we had angel voices. The parents even cried.

    I think I like your lyrics a lot better.

  3. Ah! I must say I hit this hoping for an It's Not Easy Being Green parody. But this was way better. I'd forgotten how much I love this song.

  12. I thought I was going to find the lyrics to "It's Not Easy Being Lean..."

    first time commenter, long time poster. I've lost 50 lbs over ~six months (~30% of my body weight) and have been in maintenance for the past six months (+/- 5 lbs). just wanted to say that you're an inspiration and I share your struggle!

    I'd like to lose a final 10 lbs, but would be happy "just" maintaining here for awhile (and there's no "just" about it)...

  13. My favorite paragraph:

    Who said that this journey
    Would be quick and easy?
    Just look how many failures there are.
    You just gotta ignore that.
    It’s your time– believe it,
    And look what you’ve accomplished so far.

    But, Jack? Are you telling me you Never Promised Me A Rose Garden?
