I believe that about some things. But not about my health and fitness. It is too important to me to just give up and accept I can't do anything about it. It is what it is because I get to decide what I want it to be.
Trying to lose weight can be frustrating for everyone. If it were easy no one would be fat.
I have wondered if it is really easier for some to lose the weight or if it is just because they put more effort into it.
I understand the scale frustration because it barely seemed to move for me too.
I had side by side progress pics done recently and someone said it looked like a 15-20 pound difference. It was only 4&1/2 pounds, how frustrating is that?! I put the scale away and go by how I look and how my clothes fit because I want it too bad to give up.
Good luck on reaching your goals. It may not be easy but all the hard work really is worth it.
