Fat Guy Slim Woman Toasting The Superbowl

Fat Guy Slim Woman Toasting The Superbowl

Last night after watching Superbowl XLIV (Saints – Colts), I decided to watch a movie that I had seen before – Mel Gibson’s “Apocalypto.” For some reason, I could not remember the story line, but I do remember liking the action and the tone of that flick. Additionally, the DVD/TV that we watched, did not have a remote so we could not turn on  the subtitles, so all we could do was watch it and listen to the music.  But today, suddenly I remembered the Will Durant quote, that Gibson had included after the opening credits to the movie. It states “A great civilization is not conquered from without until it has destroyed itself from within.

I thought about it today, because gaining weight is really the external aspect of your internal condition. Think about it, when you’ve got  a strong inner game playing, everything is a breeze.  When you’re in the zone, you feel powerful and able to do anything. Trying to manage all of the outer aspects of weight loss is great. The strongest place to play though, is in managing what goes on inside your mind.

Take overeating as an example. You may have been one of the guys that consumed 4,000+ calories during the Superbowl. My guess is, if you did over-consume during the game, it wasn’t because you were hungry. It was probably because you were having fun and you had your buddies or family as company, and you weren’t thinking about the results of partaking in this annual pagan feast known as the Superbowl.

Having fun makes a lot of sense to me. But, if this is only one day of the entire “eating-for-fun season,”  then you do have an eating problem. If you are reading this though, there is hope. Not because of what I have written, but because you are aware of the changes you already need to make.

During the next football, basketball, or hockey game with your people around, pay attention to everything you eat and drink. I promise that when you start watching all the things you eat and drink, you will automatically start saying “no” more often. This is what I call the “winning at the inner Superbowl game,”  that will change your shape and how you feel. Weight loss happens one day at a time.

By the way, I’m glad the Saints won, New Orleans deserves to have their  spirits raised. I hope you agree.
