This morning a friend was telling me that her friend had lost 60 kilos.
He’s been talking about losing weight for years, but he’d rather take shortcuts. You know those pills that make it so your mouth burns when you eat?
Anyway, he finally just started eating less crappy and doing some exercises and he’s lost 60 kilos.
So much of a good life is just doing shitty things we hate.
This year I resolved to do the things that bring long-term happiness, and a few days later Gretchen Rubin said this, “Don’t do something to make yourself feel better that in the long run is going to make yourself feel worse.” And that’s what I’m trying to live by.
Because it’s never the fire pills that work.
It’s always the broccoli.
