Losing weight is about discipline
This one's true, but only if the loser doesn't mind regaining the weight they lost, and a little extra besides. Discipline alone doesn't result in healthy, sustainable weight loss. Once you're obese, maintaining a healthy weight in a healthy way for life calls for a colorful concoction of self-reflection, truth-seeking, open-mindedness, willingness, and ongoing support.
Luckily, all of that's available. And when you stop getting sidetracked by the BS surrounding weight loss, you're much more likely to find it.
