When people ask me how I lost weight my answer was simple: Math.
(eat less + exercise more = less calories = less pounds)
I understand it's not that simple. Lack of self-control can make getting in shape really difficult.
Self-Control is a research interest at the lab. Many people lack self control and make choices based on the short term at the expense of the long term (earth-shattering).
I've been slacking off about working out lately.
Why? Because sometimes I just don't feel like it - even when I know I'll be happy I went. And, I also tell myself "This is a very human way to feel and a very human way to act. I think I'm not like everybody else, but I am."
This is bullshit, excusing myself like this. I know better. I must do better.
