Honestly, I’m tired of feeling chubby all the time. And I know I’m not alone. So I think this is it. I think this is the year that I FINALLY get taller.

What’s that, you say? That’s not how it works? This is an outrage. I demand to speak to a manager.

Losing weight feels rewarding but so does, you know, pizza, so it’s a horrendously uphill battle. And I don’t like going up hills. If I did we wouldn’t be in this mess.

Lucky for me, Twitter is full of likeminded folks on the fitness struggle bus. Here’s a few principles of weight loss, in the form of tweets.

10. Work multiple angles

9. Maintain balance

8. Deplete calories, keep everything else

7. Moderation is key

6. Encourage yourself

5. Change habits


4. Stay on schedule

3. Be life-affirming

2. Make better choices

1. Set goals

I think I’ve officially got the motivation I need now to finally lose the pudge.

Right after I order Chipotle for the third time this week. Baby steps, people. Baby steps.

Have you been trying to lose weight this year? How’s it going?

Let’s talk about it in the comments.
