So my secret guilty pleasure is to read loads and loads of "weight loss success stories" online. I don't know how true they are or how honest they are, but I can read them for hours.
They all lose weight so QUICKLY. and they all say things like " I went from eating four chocolate bars a day to none at all", as if that's all it takes! and I think.. I never ate that way.. how is it fair that I'm so overweight and they've given up eating ridiculously and suddenly their weight is perfect? I know these stories simplify it all and everything. What bothers me is, do these people actually have such good and quick success because of how unhappy they were? they're all stories of how something happened to make them want to change, to make themselves happy. I'm already happy.. I'm obviously not happy with my weight and how I look naked... but it doesn't stop me from being happy with myself. I love myself and I know losing weight won't fix everything.
I just wonder if I WAS desperately unhappy and distraught with my life and if I blamed my weight for everything that made me unhappy, would I be losing weight with more vigour? i AM trying but I could always try harder and do more. I could stop using calories for treats to get where I want to be. But I just don't seem to have the motivation to try that hard. Would I be better off being a bit less at peace with myself?
Just a thought! I weigh in tomorrow and I'm probably feeling a bit guilty about not doing as much as I should health-wise, so distracting myself with excuses!
