Ever driven a car with automatic transmission that isn't tuned quite right, so that as soon as you take your foot off the brake it starts moving quite quickly? That is my body with weight gain. More than once when life has gotten busy and had a lot of changes (so that I couldn't rely on habits and wasn't paying a lot of attention) I've gained ten pounds in not much over a month, and not from doing anything dramatic, just eating closer to what I craved. So I have my foot on the brake pretty much at all times, so barring those topsy-turvy occasions just mentioned gaining for me is largely a conscious decision to stop fighting it so hard. I would assume that a lot of people are in a somewhat similar situation, but I don't know for sure.
Great analogy Tad!
Yes, my Jeep did that when I first got it. I had to stand on the break to keep it still lol! Had to get that fixed before I had an accident
I know quite a few people in the same situation, my aunt for one. She's constantly fighting, her weight goes up and down all the time regardless of the time of year. I feel sorry for her because she is unhappy about her weight most of the time and no words of mine can change that, I've tried. I just hope she can find happiness on her own eventually.
