Libby freely admitted that she isn’t exercising, which was her way of making an excuse for not losing weight. Not exercising is the reason she gave for not losing weight. No exercise, no weight loss. The no-exercise confession was simply a diversion. This is Libby’s way of easily deflecting the fact that she wasn’t doing anything consistent and effective about the calories-in side of the equation; using the no exercise gambit to cover up the not-watching-what-you-eat frame of mind.
Women like Libby, who eat too much, too often, and too improperly, hop on the same bandwagon and use not exercising, not exercising enough, not exercising properly as excuses for not losing weight.
