You Don’t Get Fat Accidentally

Fellow Melbournian and blogger/fitness guru Craig Harper recently made a comment which really caught my eye. It was one of several useful points in a blog post of his and was simple this –

“You don’t get fat accidentally”

And I guess, when it comes down to it, that this is true. At the end of the day, someone has to take responsibility for the state of your health and wellness, and ultimately that someone has to be you. Sure, your Mum might have stuffed cookies and ice-cream down your throat when you were young, and maybe you really did have zero positive influence in the health arena while growing up. Maybe bad genetics play a part, or perhaps you just spent years not even being aware that there was an alternative way of eating, a way that didn’t result in a slow but steady rise of the scales. And it could be that you’ve been unfortunate enough to suffer some kind of physical, emotional or otherwise impairing ailment that really has restricted your ability to eat well and exercise.

But the long and short of it is that, like it or not – and whether or not you’re fully to blame – the body that you’re walking around in is the direct result of the foods you’ve put into it, the thoughts and subsequent actions you’ve allowed to take place, and the amount of movement that you’ve made room for in your busy life. And you might think that poor health or a greater waist girth than you’d like is something that just snuck up on you, but the truth is that you kinda knew things were going wrong a while ago, didn’t you? It’s just that, for whatever reason, you didn’t feel ready to face facts. To square your shoulders and admit to yourself that whatever you’d been doing was clearly not working out for you. And that more of the same would absolutely, most certainly, in fact irrevocably lead to more of the same.

And hey. Who am I to talk? I spent at least 3 or 4 years in my early days as a Personal Trainer a good 6-10 kg overweight, pretending that it wasn’t an issue, trying to convince myself I was getting away with not practicing what I preached, going out to dinner nearly every night and then finally, eventually, having to look myself in the mirror and admit that I wasn’t happy with what I saw. And that despite the fact that I’d been working 80 hour weeks (and therefore had the ‘excuse’ of having no time for exercise or food preparation) and despite being constantly ‘dragged’ out for less-than-healthy meals by my then partner, the image I was looking at was a direct outcome of my behaviors. I was the one who had chosen to let things slip, and I was the one who was paying the price. So it stood to reason that I was the one who had to do something about it.

Your situation may be more complex than that. I was lucky enough to figure all this out at an age where hard work and good eating alone was enough to (slowly) turn things around. And I didn’t have any underlying hormonal issues holding me back, at least nothing that a few week’s of proper sleep couldn’t sort out. Nor did I have kids or any other sort of serious responsibilities to worry about. You might have so much going on in your body let alone the rest of your life that you feel as though – accident or not – your current physical state is a battle your gradually losing and that you really don’t know if you can do anything about it.

But the good news is that just as you don’t lose control by accident, you don’t get it back by accident. Why is that good news? Well sure, it would be wonderful if the magic fairy came by and waved her wand and you were suddenly looking at the you you’ve always longed to be, but we both know that ain’t gonna happen. And really, who wants to live in a world where success depends on chance?

You’re lucky enough to live in a world where you do have the power. You can decide right now who you want to be 100 days from now. You can decide right now what you’re going to put in your mouth from here on out. And whether or not you’re going to continue to kid yourself, to justify the treats, the ‘surely-this-little-bit-won’t-hurts’, the missed workout opportunities, the constant waiting for the right time to really be tough on yourself and find out just what you’re capable of. And what are you waiting for? You wouldn’t be scared at all, would you? Afraid of what might happen if you do man up? Square your shoulders, look yourself straight in the eye, and admit that you really haven’t been giving things a proper shot? Because when all is said and done, if somebody has to take responsibility for the state you’re in (and they do), then isn’t it best that that person is you? Assuming of course, that you have your own best interests at heart.

But if you’re okay with always wondering, or if you truly don’t mind the added bulge, then that’s fine. Don’t face the fear. Don’t finally take the plunge, truly commit to eating, thinking and training right day in and day out. The choice is yours, after all. There are no accidents in the weight loss game.

Ready to drop the bullshit –

Quit trying to climb the damn mountain, hand over fist, one painful and endless move at a time –

And claim your rightful place, now?

It’s time to stop questioning.

It’s time to stop ‘one daying’.

And it’s DEFINITELY time to stop asking HOW.

Thereisnohowfuckthehowfuckitgoodfuckitrightintheass.

(Doesn’t sound like something I would say )

The way you’re going to get there is the same way you were ALWAYS going to get there is the only way that ANYBODY ever gets there is by claiming.your place.now.

Planting your damn flag on top of the mountain and saying what is UP, bitches, what’s been happening, here I now am and so the show can BEGIN!

Introducing LEADER! 🙌🙌

Fuck Being a Good Girl, Fuck Following the Rules, Fuck Working Your Way There Hand Over Fist. You Were Born to Run the Damn Show and Baby? It’s Time.

10 Days.

10 Modules.

10 gajillionty uplevels, in fact, nah, scratch that – ONE freakin’ uplevel, in which we take you straight to where you were ALWAYS MEANT TO BE.

It’s time to quit fucking around here, and claim your rightful place.

Here’s the 10 Modules I will be BURNING INTO YOUR PRETTY LITTLE LEADER SOUL during our time together!

(A Module a day keeps the peasant energy away)

Module 1: Leader Energy

Owning it, being it, living it, no excuses, just dropping in to NOW being the unquestionable next level leader who EVERYBODY looks to and who runs the damn thing. I don’t have to tell ya –
We could pretty much just do this module and you’d be done.

 Module 2: Multi-Millionaire Leader BELIEFS

Wealthy people have certain beliefs which broke ass peeps do not. It is what it is and that’s all it is. Guess what? PURPOSE driven wealthy peeps are another level altogether.
Change your beliefs >
Change your life.
It’s THAT freaking simple.

 Module 3: Leader Sales Hustle and Monetization

Leaders sell how leaders sell and they monetize with NO shame, ALL soul, and all RESULTS.
This is a mindset AND it’s about gettin’ real with what works.
So that’s what we’re gonna do!

 Module 4: Leader Content Creation

Look, nobody needs or gives a fuck about any more lame ass low-vibe please look at me teaching and preaching.
The Internet IS full. Boring does NOT sell. Too many folks are out there just trying to re-churn what everybody else is doing.
BUT THERE IS ALWAYS SPACE FOR THE NEXT MAGNETIC AF LEADER TO TAKE CHARGE.
I’ll show you how to pull that out of you. And explode it to the world.

 Module 5: Leader Social Media OWNING

Let’s get you big.

Engaged.

Listened to.

EVERY WORD HUNG OFF.

And consistently fucking paid.

Social media is a VERY easy tool to make work for you and nope I’m not talking about analytics or algorithms. I’m talking about being everywhere, all the time, in a way they can’t ignore, and also with minimum effort for maximum result.

 Module 6: Leader Squad

Leaders don’t do shit that leaders don’t do or leaders ain’t leaders. We are gonna sort out your support system and streamline your LIFE. With or without ‘team’. I started with this with NO staff or team, NO money, and yet I still knew how to keep my energy and time to what mattered and let other people pick up my slack.
Leaders are supported and lifted up, PERIOD. Let’s get this happening for you.

 Module 7: Leader Daily Disciplines, Practices, Routines, Must Dos and Absolutely-Fucking-Will-Not-Dos!

THIS IS MY FAVOURITE.

Also probably the real thing (energy aside!) that gets you paid big.

 Module 8: Leader ABUNDANCE Creation

ALL the calling-in-of-money shiz-niz you need to know about and EVERY damn thing I have done over the years to dial it up from broke to abundant and rich-from-soul AF.

Module 9: Leader Lit-Up-Ed-Ness and Joie de Vivre

People ain’t gonna be interested if you’re not interesting girlfriend.
We are going to recapture your fucking FIRE, and I’ll show you exactly how.

 Module 10: Leader MAGNETISM

Being the most ‘they can’t look away’ person out there, where no matter what you do or how random it is PEOPLE HAVE TO HAVE IT ‘CAUSE IT’S YOU.

Yep, that is an INTENSIVE learning schedule but we did already agree it’s time to quit fucking around. Besides which, this is not about learning. This is about remembering, remembering, remembering, and motherfucking BEING –

All that you were always meant to damn well be.

BELLS AND 6-INCH STILETTOS OR WHATEVER THE FUCK IT IS YOU WANT TO PUT ON, ONNNNNN.

Literally every possible thing you possibly need to know to NOW run the damn thing is what we’re covering here.

Modules will be delivered directly into the group each day and include LIVE as well as listen / watch / learn at home content. A lot of content! But only exactly what you need!

And baby?

It is going to kick your butt GOOD.

Listen –

I know you have this burning inside of you which is NOT going to go away.

You know and have always known that you are different, not just from the other PEOPLE, but from the other entrepreneurs.

The thing is gorgeous –

At some point you’re going to need to say yes to that.

Let me show you how.

Join LEADER today!

And watch your life blow straight the fuck up to where it’s always meant to have been.

    I needed this. Thank you!

  2. Carla says:

    For me, I have to be mindful everyday what I do, how I eat, and how much activity I do. NOT being mindful had me anywhere between 40 and 50 lbs overweight as a young woman. Some people think that I “worry too much”, but not thinking about it and making a consistent effort didn’t work for me. Unfortunately, genetics are not in my favor!

  3. Nate says:

    Very well said. My articulation of this very subject isn’t quite as elegant as yours (I just tend to get angry when people repeatedly act like this.) Its funny how people draw a line in the sand, so-to-speak, over and over again until they feel like they have accomplished a lot, when they really have done next to nothing.

  4. Nicole says:

    Just what I needed to hear kat. Thanx. May the mountain climb become a little hill!

  5. Hugh says:

    This is one of the things I think about and that angers me most, especially when I’m at the grocery store, and I could write forever on it. I think there are two subcategories of people who are in the larger category of Accidentally Fat: those who are ignorant and those who don’t care. The latter is a huge category here in the U.S., but that’s another topic. I think there are many good people out there who just don’t know what it takes to be physically fit. All they need is some guidance and discipline to start their path to fitness. The people who don’t care are the people who grow up in super-sized families and just think that they’re “a larger person”, not too dissimilar from having blue eyes or brown hair. They think that being huge is perfectly normal (again, speaking of the U.S.) and therefore are completely apathetic to their physical situation. I wish both categories of these people would take responsibility for themselves and their fitness.
