Weight loss gimmicks
Working out and being healthy is hard enough when you are already extremely busy. Finding motivation can be even harder, but do we not have a reason for wanting it? I mean without a reason or goal you are basically working for nothing, so wouldn't your reason be your motivation?
Weight Loss Surgery
Surgery is a tool, not a cure. You still have to workout and learn to live a healthier lifestyle to maintain the results, so why would you get surgery. You have to spend a lot of money on this surgery just for life to be even harder after. Why not spend the money on workout equipment or ways to make food prep easier?
Wouldn't you have more satisfaction from knowing how hard you worked to get to where you want to be? Wouldn't you appreciate your size better knowing all the hard work you put into it?
