Victims, Victimizers, Victimization and Victimhood

“If it’s never our fault, we can’t take responsibility for it. If we can’t take responsibility for it, we’ll always be its victim.”   Richard Bach

In my writing and speaking I focus on the positive aspects of life,  not only to be motivational, but to inspire those that are battling obesity to take charge of their own lack of self-control and in turn take command of their lives.

Often times I have been accused of being unfair, unfeeling or uncaring.  Of the three, the most often accusation leveled at me is that I am unfair.

I am criticized for not understanding the plight of those who are obese.  I am attacked for not supporting groups like the National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance or worse for not be welcoming of their mission statement which reads; NAAFA is a non-profit human rights organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for fat people. 

Look at some of my before pictures.  I was an unhealthy, unfit and an undesirable three hundred and forty pounds.  What my detractors don’t understand, or perhaps just don’t like, is the fact that I shed my victim status and took responsibility for my deplorable physical condition.

As far as improving quality of life — the best way to improve quality of life is to shed body fat and embrace a fit lifestyle. I do not require, nor do I desire, an organization to justify my lack of inner strength nor to propose legislation to force others to make accommodations for my lack of discipline.

There are others outside the world of weight loss and fitness who just as wholeheartedly promote people to embrace victim status.   WILK’s afternoon entertainer Steve Corbett jumps to mind as the leading local voice attempting to convince listeners that other people are responsible for both their lot in life and their salvation.

In any setting the victimizers are all the same.   They promote themselves as being the defenders of certain individuals, when in fact, they exploit those individuals to further their agenda.

The victimizers not only want, but need us to accept the role as victim.  Their own self worth, advancement of their ideals and excuses for their own weakness requires that their target audience scapegoat others for their predicaments.  The victimizers entire sense of self is dependent upon the victimization of the masses. Without people accepting victim status, they have no audience — and in turn, possess no tangible self worth.

In the battle over obesity, how can you no longer be a victim? In the absence of an underlying medical condition, accept the fact that you and your choices are responsible for your current condition.  Once you accept that it is your choices and your responses to situations that led you to where you are — resolve to no longer be a victim of those particular choices.

I have written about two amazing young people; Stephanie Jallen and Bethany Hamilton.  Both of these young people could very well have been the victims of circumstance.  Yet, these women made a choice that they would NOT be victims.  They would not simply overcome their situations, but they would succeed because of what others would perceive as limitations.  They did not blame others for what happened to them. They accepted what fate had delivered into their lives and have gone on to great achievements.

What is most fascinating about these two incredible individuals is that they made their decisions not to be victims at young ages.  Stephanie was nine years old when she embarked on her dream of being a champion paralympic skier and Bethany was thirteen when she decided to not allow the loss of an arm to derail her dreams to be a champion surfer.  Read that again; one person was nine the other thirteen years old.  They chose how they would respond to adversity before they were even old enough to drive a car.

Can we as adults learn from the examples of those so young?

Is there a situation so bleak that it requires unhealthy eating?

Are we able to overcome simple laziness to reach our fitness goals?

The answers are yes, no and yes. We are capable of learning, we are intelligent enough to realize that food will not solve the problems and we can be resolute to overcome laziness.

However, those who promote victimization would tell you just the opposite.

They do not want you to believe in yourself.

They do not want you to accept individual responsibility and perhaps most importantly, they do not want you to believe that you as an individual can conquer your own inner demons.

There are no more malevolent persons than those that want you to be convinced that your fate, your position or your condition is the fault of someone other than yourself.  The evil resides in their desire for you to stay overweight, out of shape and down and out simply to justify their existence.

Say no to being victimized.

Say no to the vicitmizers.

Say no to being a victim.

Should Exercise Be Fun?


vaca 2014 zuma panorama

6 months!

 

“…. to go into a cold gym takes a lot of discipline, boy, I’ll tell ya. … I never liked to exercise, but I like results.”   Jack LaLanne

CAM00364I was reading on one of the many Facebook pages I belong to and someone was asking about not feeling up to a workout.  Some of the responses suggested that workouts must be fun.  As I read them I had to ask myself two questions:

Are my workouts fun? Do they need to be?

My exercise routine is spit into two portions:

Strength training, in which I use weight lifting.

Endurance training, in which I use a combination of jogging, sprints, rope skipping and or the stationary bike.

Yes, I will admit that there is something exhilarating about pitting myself against cold, unyielding iron.  And, yes I do look forward to my mornings in the gym.  If I am pressed for time, I always get in some sort of weight training. While I do relish weightlifting, I’m not sure if the word fun would be an apt descriptor.

When it comes to jogging; I like the the time alone, free from distractions, outside enjoying the weather, but do I have fun? Not really. I am not even sure I even slightly enjoy the activity.  I am not really built for running, either physically or mentally, but because of the results I attain,  I get out there and I do it.

I do NOT believe that fun needs to be part of the criteria for going out and exercising, or even in  the choice of a particular exercise.  I pick and chose my routine for the results I am looking to achieve.  When I am bulking up and adding strength, my weight training is slower and the weights I use are much heavier.  I still jog, but I cover less distance and I do it at a much slower pace.  When I am leaning out, I decrease the poundage and I move at a much quicker pace.  I cover more distance when I jog, I do it at a faster pace and I include rope skipping and sprints.

No matter what my particular goal is, I always include both progressive resistance and endurance training.  They both contribute to the overall result I am striving to achieve.

Is fun important?  I guess it could be, but it isn’t a requirement.  Exercise is done to improve the overall quality of life.  While I don’t really consider my exercise routine fun, it makes much of the other activities that I engage in much more fun.

When I was pursuing my Chiropractic education, I spent hours upon hours studying for classes, quizzes, exams and boards.  Did I have fun during all that study time? I would have to say no, but it was necessary to achieve my goal.  I look at exercise much the same way.  My goal in regards to exercise is not to have fun during my exercise time; it is to achieve an improved level of fitness.

The fun is in the results —

-because I am fit, I am able to hike longer and more difficult trails.vaca 2014 lovin the beach

-because I am fit, I am able to participate more actively in beach and ocean activities

-because I am fit, I am able to live every aspect of my life much fuller and with much greater joy.

So, is fun a requirement when it comes to choosing an exercise routine? Perhaps to some, but it wasn’t to Jack LaLanne and it isn’t to me.  I am much more concerned with results. 

Taking into account travel to the track, then to the gym, showering and dressing — only about ninety minutes of my day is focused on exercise. While fun is nice; I prefer effectiveness, which in turn  improves the quality of  the remaining twenty-two and a half  hours (and, yes, I sleep better because of exercise) of my day.

Thanksgiving Eating


The Thanksgiving holiday is 2 weeks out.   The diet experts are starting to rear

English: Thanksgiving Dinner, Falmouth, Maine,...

English: Thanksgiving Dinner, Falmouth, Maine, USA 2008 (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

their heads, preaching how we must diet through the holiday.  Therefore, these self-proclaimed experts are blabbing about, giving endless, and pretty much useless, tips on how to stay on a diet.

A client me asked what I was going to eat on Thanksgiving.  I told her the same things she should — whatever I like.

I own the word diet. 

A diet is what we eat. 

Generally for me, that means an as close to nature as possible, low carbohydrate, whole food diet. On the occasional day that I don’t follow my usual diet, I consider them open eating days.

In my book, Obesity Undone, I have outlined what internet, low carb guru, Jimmy Moore coined,  ”planned splurges.”  These are days when we predetermine not to be strict. The holidays can, and in my opinion should, be planned splurges.  I wish I could be like fellow Chiropractor Jack LaLanne and eschew unhealthy sugar for all of my life, it is a goal for which I strive, but until then, I am going to indulge from time to time — I accept it, and I don’t let it bring me down.

Partaking, one day, every few months or even weeks, is not going to sabotage all of our hard work; after all, we are the master’s of our meals.  Being the masters, we must be disciplined and plan.  Not for the holiday — but for the day after. Of course this is only for those of us who do NOT have food issues, like celiac or gluten insensitivity or diabetes, etc…

Open faced, delicious.

1- Get rid of leftovers that are not part of our regular diet. I understand that it is wasteful, but if you are a low carber like me, the potatoes, stuffing, pie and the like go in the trash, keep the turkey and vegetables.  If the bad stuff isn’t there, neither is the temptation.  If our family members aren’t watching what they eat and want the leftovers, have them take the food with them.  If they live with you? Tough, they don’t get them either, toss them in the trash!!!

2- Plan the next day’s meals and snacks ahead of time.  After a day of cooking, setting-up, feasting and cleaning, you many not be in the mood to prepare proper foods.  To alleviate this potential problem, have our foods  ready and in the fridge.

3- Weigh ourselves the next day. Don’t get too hung up on the number because it will be up.  Yet, get on the scale.  The increased reading will keep us from making a one day splurge into a multi-week  food fest.

4- Exercise.  I make sure to work out Thanksgiving morning before everyone gets up and then I make sure to exercise first thing Friday morning.  It is important to maintain our exercise routines. No excuses! No carbohydrate loaded laziness! We must get off our asses and move.

Holidays are very food centric events.  The so-called experts will have us believe that we should not partake.  Here is the dirty little secret — we won’t be good.  Part of being human is enjoying food and company. In the U.S., this often goes hand in hand.  So, if we try to listen to the “experts”, but end up overindulging, instead of  simply eating bad one day, we are now over-loaded with both food and bad feelings and next comes the emotional eating that often accompanies guilt.

Remember, when we prepare ahead of time for the splurge and the day after, we will enjoy a guilt free holiday

Keep this one thought in mind:

It is not what we eat between Thanksgiving and Christmas that destroys our weight loss goals and fitness — It is what we eat between Christmas and Thanksgiving that does the damage.

Have a happy and enjoyable Thanksgiving.

Aloha, Ciao and Stay Healthy,

Joe

Weight Comes Off — As Weight Comes Off


I am often asked what my goals are for weight loss.  Those of you who have been following my blog and YouTube channel are aware my focus is

English: Public weight scale no more on duty a...

English: Public weight scale no more on duty as ornamental element at Néfiach (France) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

primarily on improving overall fitness levels.  However, yes I want to drop weight, but improving my health is the overriding desire.  Body weight, body fat, clothing size and body habitus are tools utilized in monitoring that improvement.

I do have a goal weight; it may change the closer I get to it, depending on how I feel, how clothing fits, etc… I use the target weight to assist me in achieving my overall intention.

The next question I usually get asked is “When do you want to reach that goal?” My answer is always the same, “Whenever I get there.”

I receive many other questions, but for the most part, people don’t believe that I don’t have a set date by which to lose weight.  I further explain that having a set date is pointless, because my overall goal isn’t simply the number on the scale.  However, I elaborate, clarifying that when people set a date or an event, to reach their goal, what usually occurs is a letdown, sometimes brief, other times so bad that it leads to rebounding and recidivism.

I have also been accused of losing weight too fast at certain times.  I give a perplexed look and then I ask a simple question, “Why?”  The answer back is always the same, “Because they say you shouldn’t lose weight too fast.” If you have read either edition of my book, you will know how I feel about them, but I won’t go there today.

English: Blueberries.

Simply put, I do nothing drastically differently when I am dropping weight compared to when I am maintaining.  I don’t starve myself, I don’t sit endlessly in a sauna and I don’t work out any differently.  I eat my meals, which usually are between four and six feedings a day, I jog, skip rope, do sprints and lift weights in some combination every day, regardless of my body weight.  The only slight alteration in my diet is that I add back in some fruit as I near my target weight, and when I am maintaining, I add a little additional fruit and some naturally occurring, unprocessed starches like a sweet potato or yam.  The only changes in my exercise may be a little more distance, heavier weights and quicker and longer sessions — but that is simply because I am in better physical condition, it is part of the process of getting in shape, once you’re there, the body adapts by being able to do more work.

Since the overall objective is improved fitness, to improve health, to live a better life —  don’t get wrapped up on  a set date or some event —  get focused on a lifetime change and remember weight loss is a side effect of fitness; fitness is not the end result of weight loss.

I Strongly Dislike Being Fat, Unfit and Out Of Shape


Okay, I admit it — I don’t simply dislike; I *#^$ing hate being in the lousy physical condition I am currently in.  I never thought I would be back to this, but the 300 pound mark was peeking over the horizon — thankfully, I mounted the weight measuring device before reaching that For You, and Your Denial

undesirable destination.

It is remarkable how the mind will play tricks — baggy sweatshirts on a large frame really can hide weight gain; at least in one’s own mind.  The reality is that gaining 80 pounds without admitting to it is nothing more than self-indulgent, gullible denial.

I get a lot of condemnation because I advocate daily weighing.  After this bout of recidivism, I will more strongly advocate that which I abandoned.   Not simply for what the numbers report, but as a primary tool of self-accountability.  If I had only continued to get on the scale — I never would have gotten so far off the mark.  You see, an even bigger aid in self-delusional denial than a big baggy sweatshirt, is avoidance of objective measures.  And, like it or not, the scale is an objective measure.

When I finally faced up to and stepped upon the digital demon, I wanted to open the window and toss it to the ground below.  However, I was aware the scale wasn‘t responsible for the total it conveyed, it was I who avoided all which I had encouraged for so long who dropped the ball.

I took the time to reflect, in both reading and writing.  I wrote several posting about my own introspection and additionally I re-read the book I wrote.  It is funny how all that I had done to not only lose the weight and get fit, but to maintain it for so many years, were recklessly disregarded as stress began to weigh on me nearly as heavily as the skies did upon the shoulders of Atlas.

As I allowed those stressors to pile up — my desire and determination began to wane and the discipline that is so necessary to maintain a healthy and fit life style plummeted, and I — plumped up.

My nice suits, which I so loved wearing, at first became tight, than no longer fit — yet, I remained in denial.

My energy levels dropped more and more, and sleep abandoned me — yet, I remained in denial.

My joy for activity became less and less — yet, I remained in denial.

However, once I faced the scale, denial disappeared.  You see, it wasn’t a device I was facing — it was my own self I stared down.  There was no doubt remaining and no unplausible deniability permitted; it was I who had allowed my fitness to falter.  Moreover, I was well aware of what needed to be done.  The switch had been flipped, and I was ready to commit to myself, to my health and get back to living the better life.
