Do you know anybody who is always complaining about their appearance but they’re not willing to put in the work to look any better? It’s hard to have any sympathy when they go on about losing weight, and then pop another yummy chocolate biscuit into their mouth.
I always think you can’t complain about something unless you are willing to change. The definition of crazy is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. I would like to have stronger abs but I don’t mention it to anyone in case they give me a lecture that I should start doing sit-ups, truth be told I can’t be bothered. So I stick to paddle boarding and have average abs as a result.
Next time your friend is whinging about their looks, here are a few fun things you cansay with a smile.
