Wow. I like it. Seriously I'd buy a shirt with that if they sold them.
Because think about it. What is a dare? (And I know this all too well, because, as my friends will tell you, I can't walk away from one!) Per Merriam Webster:
1 a: to challenge to perform an action especially as a proof of courage
2: to have the courage to contend against, venture, or try
So. Here we are. Overweight, unhappy, inactive. You know you aren't happy with yourself. Do you DARE to change it? I do. Do you have the courage to contend against the challenge of becoming fit and healthy? Because it's not the easiest thing in the world when you have years of living otherwise. I do. Most days. And on the days I don't have it? Dare me. Dare me to make it a fit and healthy day. I dare you to dare me! Because I can't not do it if you dare me! If I'm freaking out about something that really, in the grand scheme of things is totally inconsequential (like people gossiping about a surgery I never had or the fact that I didn't lose enough weight that week or that I just might not be perfect at this) DARE me to knock it off. Please.
Because I dare to change my life.
When people want to tell you that you can't do this without surgery, or without taking a pill, that's a dare. When people try to cut you down because they're jealous of your success, that's a dare. When people try to push food on you that you don't want (because they don't want to be eating the crap alone) THAT is a dare. They are all dares to keep doing this. BECAUSE THEY DON'T THINK WE HAVE THE GUTS TO DO IT! Keep pushing forward towards your goals. They are DARING us to do it.
By the way. I dare you. Double dog.
