While the process of losing weight certainly entails dropping some pounds, it also includes what’s involved in “getting yourself to do it.” In each of the three phases of weight loss “getting yourself” to start, to stick to it, and then keep the weight off is even more a part of the weight loss process than shedding pounds.
Instead of relying on willpower and greater self-control to “get yourself to do it”, how about taking another, less strenuous course? For example, the more something gets to be a habit, the less stress and strain there will be on you to consciously direct your actions. Habits practically run themselves. Present the situation and the habit is there. So developing habits that will get you to do what you need to do to lose weight and keep the weight off is the way to go.
