So far I’ve only lost 6.8lbs this month. I’m pretty sure that, though I consciously want to lose weight, my subconscious doesn’t. It makes excuses for me to eat, like ‘oh, I don’t know how many calories I’ve eaten today, so I might as well eat what I want’, or ‘I’m going out for lunch with a friend, so I don’t want to just let him eat alone’, or ‘I don’t want to eat too little unless my metabolism slows’.
I need to realise that nobody is putting food in my mouth. What I eat is my responsibility alone, and my excuses are just that: excuses to remain fat. Of course, my subconscious is playing a huge part, but recognising that is part of the journey.
Total loss: 6.8lbs
Still need to lose: 60.6lbs
