How’d You Get So Thin?!
That’s what I heard today as someone fumbled to grab my attention.
I was working out so I was in the zone then I see this guy give me the
Pull out your earphones, I want to interrupt your workout gesture.
He says, dude how’d you get so thin?
I laugh and tell him I’m not thin, I’m lean ha!
But honestly, it wasn’t easy (at first), but I think I figured out the easiest
Way to get thin and stay thin.
It’s actually easier than you think.
You see, for awhile I was working out hard, eating all the
Things that you were supposed to eat and I just couldn’t lose weight
Then I experimented.
I thought to myself, if the average American eats about 2,000 calories a day
And if more than the average of the population is overweight, then why am I
Doing what everyone else is doing?

Do what you’ve always done or what other people are doing for that matter.
If you want something to work for you, then you have to experiment and
Be somewhat fearless in accepting the results, good or bad.
Because at the end of the day, if you want something bad enough
You’ll figure out a way to make it happen.

P.S. I write this not to brag about my weight loss, but as an evident truth
That experiments are what help us grow and find out more about ourselves
And how the world works around us. If there was an ultimate truth that
We all could find, I would imagine someone would have found it by now.
But until then, keep experimenting. If you’ve got something that you’ve
Experimented with recently that you’d like to share, join me in my private
