If I had a penny for every time my child has crossed his arms and exclaimed, “I’m not doing NUFFIN!”…..

See, apparently, at three years old and as an only child, you begin to believe that if it is someone else’s idea, it must be wrong!  As my son put it yesterday, “My process is better than everyone else’s process!”

As I was struggling with the irrational mood swings of the three year old this evening, I began to think about some of the thoughts I used to have about food and exercise and the thoughts that I have heard others tell me pertaining to their diet/exercise program.  For some reason, a lot of people, most of which are older than 3, believe that their process is better than everyone else’s.  Well, a couple of people may be right. But for the majority, my former self included, being willing to open our minds and our eyes to other people’s ideas and being willing to try different things over and over until finding the perfect fit for our bodies is critically important if we want to accomplish our goals.

When I was an overweight teenager, I used to say that I felt like I was running into a brick wall over and over again and never getting anywhere.  To a certain extent, I was.  I didn’t know much about nutrition and exercise or much at all pertaining to physical fitness.  Over the last two years, the Internet and my trainer friends have opened my eyes to a whole new world.  Amazingly, a lot of what I have learned from them has helped me a great deal. Had I crossed my arms and exclaimed, “I’m not doing NUFFIN!” as I did so many times over the last 15+ years, I would still be 372+lbs and blissfully unaware of just how miserable I was.

I will continue to try to rationalize and explain the world to my 3 year old.  I will also continue to try to offer suggestions and guide friends, who ask for my help, in the direction that I think will help them best.  However, if they cross their arms and declare, “I’m not doing NUFFIN!” then I will stand back and watch while the world leaves them in its dust.
