Our minds are funny things. I think the obesity problem isn't one of disease, it's one of mental struggle. We're not sick, our brains are! It's our brains who fight us every step of the way. We can KNOW, down to our core, what we need to do, and how to do it, but we sabotage ourselves at every turn.

Yes, I have noticed that too. I think the eating well and exercising hard for a day or two part is from the instant gratification part of our culture. Is it self deception or something else for the 2 or 3 days of not so good behavior part?

That I can make several days (or the weekend!) of poor food choices, but I don't want the scale to reflect that. BUT when I make 1 or 2 days of GOOD food choices, then certainly the scale SHOULD show it.
Hmm....that's where CONSISTENCY over time DOES make a difference! And that's the challenge for me.
