More on excuse-making

Several re-blogs and referrals on the excuse-making post yesterday.

Having thought about it more:

1. Yes it’s absolutely still what I wish I would say

2. It’s not what I say

Why?  People who are struggling with weight issues are discouraged enough already without me adding to it.

So why do I still believe this to be a true sentiment?

Because it’s what we need to commit to OURSELVES — that by making excuses we are providing backing for why it is ok for us to not be losing weight.  Because we are too happy or sad or poor or rich or immobile or busy, or whatever, we’re saying we’re actually pretty OK with how we are right now and don’t really intend to change enough to be different.
