Excuses Don’t Burn Calories....love this quote
10:18 PM - 24 Jan 2010

6 February 2011, News of the World (London, UK), “‘At times I miss BEING FAT’: After going from a size 32 to a size 14, author SARRA MANNING, 37, is literally half the woman she used to be. But even LOSING WEIGHT has its downsides,” pg. 42:
PRO I’ve realised excuses don’t burn calories

I’m big boned. This dress makes me look fat. I don’t have time to exercise. Being overweight runs in my family. Oh, if you could burn calories by making excuses, I would have been a size zero.

Generally speaking, we’re talking images depicting slim, muscular, athletic bodies, often accompanied by quotes along the lines of “strong is the new skinny”, “excuses don’t burn calories” or “unless you puke, faint or die…keep going”, encouraging you to not let pain get in the way or suggesting that excuses are for the lazy.
