If you haven’t noticed, I’m not a touchy-feely, hand-holding advocate when it comes to motivation. The adult responsibility to get and stay healthy is self evident.
Look around at the general population. Is it possible to push, or pull, people out of their rut in a nice, kumbaya way? Um, nope. History has shown how that pays off.
Either kick your
ass butt with motivation, or kick it with pity. Your choice.
