I think that I would go a step further than that. I think that we put on weight when we don't consider it important enough. I'm a great believer in the saying, "we do the things that we want to do". I have observed that people fail not because they didn't care but rather that they didn't care enough. It wasn't important enough in their lives. The cost out ranked the benefit. This is where the battle for the mind is so important to the process of weight loss. You have to be fully convinced of the need to lose weight. Benefit must far outweigh cost.
It is not enough to wish for weight loss or want for weight loss, the mind has to get to the place where it HAS TO
lose weight. A TV reporter once asked me what would I have done if I hadn't lost the 87 kilos...the question blindsided me at the time. It hadn't even entered my mind that was possible! I recovered by saying, "Failure isn't an option!"
That is the mindset that is required.
Wishing you all success.
