True...and maybe i should have given a little context to my post:
i've been fat most of my life. The last 5 years or so I have "tried" to lose weight and nothing worked. I thought it was genetic and nothing could be done. I did the same things he did: asked the same questions and got the same answers.
The past 6 months, I tried harder and am seeing results.
The difference? I look back on the past and realized I never gave an honest effort. A slice of pizza here won't hurt, some ice cream won't hurt. I could eat a little more and i'll just work it off.
The bottom line is that he likely never really tried as hard as he thinks he did. I know i didn't.
