Why is it a person who wants to lose weight thinks the best way to do it is, not changing their eating habits, but rather skipping meals and starving themselves?
Ok, I’ve done this….even though I KNOW it doesn’t work. I have often skipped meals because I figured not eating was better than eating what I want. Actively changing my eating habits (and I know it’s been stipulated it’s not really HARDER, but it is a concious choice) IN THE MOMENT requires me to do something - saying no, choosing the right thing etc, where skipping the meal might be a tad easier -not logical but how the mind sometimes works is not logical. Avoidance is a common defense mechanism.
I avoid making choices by doing nothing. Classic procrastination.
do people who have access to let’s say BBoJ and can ask for guidance wander off on their own to try something that doesn’t work?
Happy Hands has a valid option fo rthis one: Fear of being seen as weak or needing help. Again, logic is not really applicable sometimes.
Also, exposing your goals to other people is very humbling in that they will now ask how you are doing and check your progress even in passing.
If someone asks for help, and then don’t take the advice then… :oops: hehe.
Does that make sense?
