I really do.
Sometimes I wish I didn't have any common sense.
Because then maybe all these weight loss "revelations" would make a difference.
Like when you see the advice "drink 8 glasses of water a day and you will melt your fat away!"
Hi. I've been trying to lose weight for years. I already drink a shit ton of water a day. I don't drink soda very much. I still have a gnarly gut!
I also hate seeing "working for 30 minutes a day 5 days a week and the pounds will come off". No, they don't. I've worked out an hour at a time, twice a day, SIX DAYS A WEEK before and the weight doesn't seem to come off.
It's annoying. It's really frustrating. It makes me want to give up.
Sometimes i think that if I weren't so damn smart (I know that sounds cocky) and I weren't already trying those things and failing with them, maybe I would be happier. Maybe I would be more optimistic and would be able to say "well EUREKA! I just need to stop drinking full fat mochas and soda all day for a while and I'll be a size 6 again!"
I'm reaching that frustrating plateau again where I've lost 6-7 pounds and it just stops and i just want to scream and cry and give up.
