They always seem to me to provide a way out.
Trying or attempting or giving it a shot - you know what I mean. These efforts can be half-hearted and can be a part of that vicious cycle of eat/lose/overeat/gain/eat/lose - repeat.
We can say we tried it. We can say we gave it a shot. Were we serious at the outset or were we protecting ourselves from the reality of where we were in the vicious cycle?
These are encouraging words and they are meant to get us going but they seem somewhat of a "weasel" expression. We tried it but we don't need to feel like a failure because after all we tried it.
Am I being a wet blanket?
