Harsh...yes...but it was what I needed to hear. I'd been letting myself off the hook for too long and it was doing me more harm than good.
I find out tomorrow if I'm going to need knee surgery. I tore my meniscus and gave myself a stress fracture while I was at "fat camp" a couple weeks ago. Maybe fat people shouldn't do jumping jacks? I can't really walk right now, but I'm still doing abs...still doing upper body workouts...being extra careful about my calorie intake. I'm jumping out of my skin wanting to get in more cardio.
There was something about getting that cold hard slap in the face of reality that made me want to prove him wrong. I don't think that sort of thing works for everyone....but it worked for me!
