Every day when you get up and say that today is the day that I will eat healthy or exercise and then you don't you lie to yourself. Eventually we stop believing liars and as a result, over time you stop believing in yourself. Make one promise today and keep it.
Decide which small promise that you can make today, ie no food after 7pm; exercise today, no alcohol or drink your water. Just make a promise and keep it for a day. It gets easier and you start to believe in yourself. Then weight loss follows.
