I was reading a book recently called 'Mere Christianity' by C.S. Lewis and though it is obviously Christian it had a principle in it that really makes me think about the excuses that I make. In the book he talks about what he calls the 'moral law' which we all sort of know deep down and we all know when we have broken one of those laws because we start either making excuses or thinking them up in our mind to have them ready if needed. Basically what I got out of it is that you come up with excuses when you know you are making the wrong decision. It's a harsh thought in any context, but in weight loss just think about it. Every time you say 'I can't' or 'I'm tired' or any other, even sometimes legitimate sounding, "reasons" its almost an alarm that you know you aren't doing what you know you should do. We don't have to come up with reasons for why we did something good right? When we do something good we just feel good about it. I heard someone say once that an excuse is just a well planned lie. That can be so true sometimes.

My Art Teacher Always said to us NO EXCUSES Just Results I hated it at thetime but he said it enough it was burned into my memory...I could make many reasons why I let myself go or how I got here but I won't I will just go for the results I want tomorrow and the next day :)
