Karen: "Some of you may need to lose 50 to 100 pounds. Is that going to happen tomorrow? Are you going to wake up tomorrow 50 pounds lighter? Next week? Is it going to happen next week? Are you going to wake up next week 50 pounds lighter? Nope, but I guarantee you. The thing you do today, will impact you next week. It will impact you next month and it accumulates. It's an accumulative experience that I'm talking about. If you eat a cheeseburger today, that's not going to give you heart disease...The cheeseburger today, tomorrow, the next day, the cheeseburger every single week, over a period of months and years, will lead you to the pathway to heart disease. It's not the cheeseburger today. It's your habits."
Moral of the story:
You cannot bring slave culture into free land and think you're going to prosper.
