I know I’ll get flak for this, but admit it. There ARE cons, and we all have to deal with them!
Also, these may not apply to everyone
PRO: You’re losing weight, FINALLY! You’ve made the commitment and are seeing results!
CON: Everyone and their neighbour is going to tell you what you’re doing WRONG, and will give you every homeopathic/old wives tail dieting/health tip.
No really, tape worms were used as a fad diet back in the day.
PRO: You can finally fit into your old skinny jeans!
CON: Shortly after, they, and everything else, no longer fit. It gets expensive. Then the cycle repeats.
Exhibit A: Baggy sweater (worn TWICE ONLY) and belt penis.
PRO: You have changed your eating habits for the better!
CON: You may now have a mild form of OCD. You went from never really thinking about what you’re eating, to NEVER stopping. Scales, calculators, meal plans, weird vegan recipes. Weirdo!
Unless you REALLY have the time to micromanage, to each his own.
PRO: You’re more confident, you want to go out, see your old friends, dance and party!
CON: You constantly have to face temptation and peer pressure and you wonder why you didn’t just stay home and have your chicken breast/rice/broccoli and run on the treadmill.
Nnnnope! No really. I said No.
PRO: You’re a regular at the gym and are totally comfortable now!
CON: You start to feel guilty once you miss a workout, or take a break and socialize one day. You’re also impatient with others at the gym, and are possessive over certain areas/equipment. Maybe a little judgemental.
No really, you look fabulous!
PRO: You don’t need food to celebrate things, food is fuel!
CON: Sometimes food is a little TOO joyless. Like that time I ate plain unseasoned baked turkey breast out of desperation. MMM! DRY AND CHEWY!
I have yet to see someone post a picture of a protein mug cake that DOESN’T look like poop.
PRO: There is no pro for this unless you had giant boobies that gave you back pain.
CON: Women! You go down numerous cup sizes until you get so frustrated with buying new bras/empty hollow bra cups that you just wear your sports bra everywhere. You’ve become THAT woman.
PRO: You no longer crave sweets/carbs and greasy fried foods. You are a changed person, FOR LIFE!
