Have you ever heard the saying "He helps those who help themselves"?
Have we been doing things that help us or hurt us? If we don't help ourselves who will? WHO CAN?
Have we ever played the victim? Have we ever done the "poor me" act? Sure we have. It's a way to get sympathy. If people feel sorry for us, they will understand that our situation is out of our control won't they? They will help us on our way to the next weight gain by making us feel better about this condition we have. This is why I can't bring myself to call this a disease or a condition. It may be but I don't want that crutch. I can make up my own crutches thank you very much - been doing it for years.
Are we ready to stop making excuses? Are we ready to endure some hunger in order to lose weight? I don't think it's possible to lose weight without experiencing hunger. That's how our bodies tell us they are empty. Now it's time to switch over to the fat stores for energy. That's why fat gets mobilized into the bloodstream; the energy supply on hand has been used up, the hydrochloric acid in the stomach is causing it to contract and it gurgles, and now there is less fat stored because it has been called into the bloodstream for energy. This is a good thing. It is what we are after. It will be OK.
