Don't Cha Wish Bryan Would Join PCD?

As a writer at least! Read Bryan's reinterpretation of PCD's hit song.

 

DON'T CHA 

Lyrics by Bryan "Pussycat" Donovan

 

I know you're worried (I know you're worried)

About being alone (about being alone)

But when you're feeling all lonely just pick up the phone

There are others just like you (others just like you)

Feeling lost and confused (feeling lost and confused)

Just kick out your house guests you ain't got nothing to lose.

 

Don't cha wish your driver was not your chef

Don't cha wish you kinda still worked for Heff

Don't cha, Don't cha

Don't cha wish the mirror was your best friend

Don't cha wish some dates would act like gentlemen

Don't cha, Don't cha

 

Exposing your goodies (exposing your goodies)

Brings your freak out to play (Brings your freak out to play)

A week of feeling so sexy can really brighten your day

Sometimes the pressure keeps mounting (pressure keeps mounting)

And there's a fork in the road (a fork in the road)

But choosing the right path can really lighten the load

 

Don't cha wish those herbs did not taste like dirt

Don't cha wish you could finally button up your shirt

Don't cha, Don't cha

Don't cha wish the weight would just melt away 

Don't cha wish you it didn't matter what others had to say

Don't cha, Don't cha

 

You're not getting younger (you're not getting younger)

Your health is in your control (your health is in your control)

Double down while in Vegas, you're on a pretty good roll

Enough with excuses (enough with excuses)

This time there's no turning back (no turning back)

Take control of the wheel and learn how to drive in the sack

 

Don't cha wish your waistline was tight like his

Don't cha wish that girdle would hide your biz

Don't cha, Don't cha

Don't cha wish you could have a masseuse every day 

Don't cha wish you got rewarded for all that naughty play

Don't cha, Don't cha

 

It pays to have manners (it pays to have manners)

You're not that high in demand (You're not that high in demand)

Only way you'll get lucky is by using your hand

Treat others with kindness (treat others with kindness)

You're not exactly a catch (you're not exactly a catch)

A few more trips to the psych couch, you might just find your match

 

Don't cha wish your humor had a touch of heart

Don't cha wish that girls didn't find you quite the tart

Don't cha, Don't cha

Don't cha wish you had someone to hold you tight

Don't cha wish you're humor had half the bite

Don't cha, Don't cha

 

You finally made it (You finally made it)

Won a prize on your own (Won a prize on your own)

It pays to be daring outside your own comfort zone

Now others take notice (others take notice)

She's not in this alone (She's not in this alone)

Support those that surround you, even if they just moan

 

Don't cha wish you started a few weeks ago

Don't cha wish you didn't have to look at Joe

Don't cha, don't cha?  

Don't cha wish that cankles was not a word 

Don't cha wish you could just flip Joe the bird?

Don't cha, don't cha?  

 

You finally joined us (finally joined us)

Congrats are in order to you (congrats are in order to you)

Now just stick with the program there is so much you can do.

It keeps getting harder (It keeps getting harder)

Every day contains stress (Every day contains stress)

Keep up all the hard work, Jackie expects nothing less.

 

Don't cha wish that Jackie would not ambush you

Don't cha wish you she'd pick on other people, too

Don't cha, Don't cha

Don't cha wish that water could taste like wine

Don't cha wish you knew where to draw that line

Don't cha, Don't cha

 

It takes plenty of false starts (plenty of false starts)

To finally commit to a plan (commit to a plan)

But it's truly worth it, if you just take a stand

One foot in front of the other (in front of the other)

Baby steps to begin (baby steps to begin)

It's not an overnight process but you're in it to win.

 

Don't cha wish you never had gained this weight

Don't cha wish you could just wipe clean that slate

Don't cha, Don't cha

Don't cha wish your waistline would shrink by ten 

Don't cha wish you these lyrics would finally end

Don't cha, I mean seriously, don't cha? 

 

Everyone Deserves a Thintervention

Craig thinks everyone can achieve their goals just like the Thintervention clients.

For all our viewers at home, please answer these questions for yourself:

What is holding you back from your Thintervention success? 

When and why did your self destruction start with unhealthy eating and lack of exercise? 

Now let me answer this next two questions for you:

Do you deserve, and can you achieve, a healthy fit body?  

HELL YES!

Where does this start?

With you! With you wanting and accepting the fact that you are worthy and deserving of self love.  

One of my training mottos with my clients is, "Borrow the love I have for you until you find it for yourself". 

Success is not just measured by inches and by the scale. It's definitely a proper indicator that you are on the right track with your program. 

All of these clients found out what is truly necessary with a weight loss program. They now have the ability to do it for themselves.  

Let me break it down here:

Mandy -- Week two into this program we could see she was a champ! Mandy trusted us and followed the program perfectly.She worked out so hard that I literally would finish the session, step away without her seeing me, and cry.  Obviously, this training is what she needs. She is capable and seeing how hard she was working would bring me to tears. Thank you Mandy for showing mothers, wives, and all women that they are capable of having the dream body they never thought possible. You are a true example of hard work.  

Jeana -- As viewers could see, I was not in therapy sessions, and I actually never had a conversation with Jeana about her depression. I could tell that she battled this but did not hear it from her mouth. She had trouble finding the workout intensity necessary to drop serious weight. Depression does effect the ability to workout to intensity.  It slows down this process. But Jeana always showed up with a smile and willingness. And for that, I appreciate and love her. Jeana has such a wonderful soul. I'm so happy that she has discovered this about herself through this program. She is just as beautiful on the inside as the out.  

Joe -- I had the opportunity to spend some good quality time with Joe. I needed to have that talk with him at the resort, because I knew he was hiding behind what he thought was the "fat, funny guy." Well, he's not overweight anymore and his routine is not funny! So when he cuts the crap he is really a sweet, caring guy. He has so much to offer family, friends, and hopefully soon, a loved one. I trust that he will carry on with his new found self. His workouts were intense and impressive. For him to pack on that much muscle mass (muscle weighs more than fat) and lose 42 pounds is extremely impressive. Congratulations, Joe! Hard work pays off! 

Shay -- I'm really proud of her facing and addressing her eating issues. So many women can relate to Shay. They think they are alone, and Shay showed them that they are not. You are a true leader Shay. I hope this motivates you to gain control of these issues and reach out to advise the millions of other women who are struggling with the same problems. I have a fondness for this girl for many reasons, but especially because she let me see her true inner self, and let me tell you, it's beautiful. 

Stacy -- Before working with Stacy, I would have said she "suffers" from  PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome). A disease of too much insulin production and resistance to using that insulin effectively. But now I say Stacy "battles" PCOS and WINS! Like all women with PCOS, she never asked for this challenge. This condition can leave women confused, and feeling helpless with so many unanswered questions. They know something is wrong, but they just don't know what it is. Stacy never asked, "Why me?" Instead she asked, "What do I have to do?" I told her you have to work twice as hard, and she did! Her determination, hours in the gym, and researching her condition, makes me so proud of her. Stacy and I together recently reached out to Monika Woolsey (www.incyst.com) for answers. Monika is a leading expert for PCOS and Stacy is well on her way to gaining control over what she needs to do for herself. As a trainer, I feel very comfortable and confident working with this, and I have gained knowledge and understanding of PCOS. With Monika's help, I have the knowledge to train these brave women battling this obstacle. Stacy, you look gorgeous! My very good looking boyfriend, celebrity hair stylist Brandon Liberati, treated her to one of his incredible cuts for the finale. www.brandonliberati.com (shameless plug). 

Nikki -- Nikki has her demons, she recognizes this, and bravely is on her path to healing. I had an opportunity to talk with Nikki at our resort retreat after the pool workout, where she explained her focus during this workout was  her confidence and to simply be present in her bathing suit. The physical outside of one's body will not change until their insides are changed and issues are dealt with. 

Bryan -- Bryan himself will tell you this program is literally, and figuratively, not a piece of cake. He had his ups and downs, but when there were downs, he got back up and stayed strong. He leaned on the support of his loved ones, including Jackie and I. He was determined to finish every work out to intensity. He ate clean and really followed the program. 

These Thintervention clients make me proud to be doing what I do. Thank you all for showing me that the long hours, tears, and sweat we trainers put into our clients are all worth it. I love you all. You all have inspired the unhealthy world we live in.  

Now for all my Thintervention viewers -- Please stay in touch, tell me your story, your struggles, your successes.   I will be posting blogs on my website focused on fitness and eating tips, even information for my PCOS battlers out there with specific tips that can get you on your way to success.
