Warning: This is my opinion. It is only my opinion.
I HATE the term self-sabotage (when used for weigth loss, or lack thereof). Sabotage is a deliberate act of wrecking something. It takes planning. It is done on purpose. People don't purposely wreck their diets. They may lack self-control for a moment and eat two candybars....but that is not intentionally destorying their diet plans. (Following me? Am I making sense? Sorry, headaches make it hard to intelligently get a thought out of my head and into words.)
So some people say that it is unintentional. It is a subconscious thing. I don't like looking at it that way either...because it removes any sense of responsibility for your actions. If something is done subconsciously, you don't have control over it. So it's basically saying I ruined my diet, but I had no control over it. Where do you take responsibility for your actions?
If someone isn't losing weight, and insists on eating junk food....can you really call it self sabotage? Or is that just a way to remove blame from yourself?
Not sure why I'm posting this, or why it bugs me so much....but there. I said it, lol.
Am I off in thinking this way?
