The idea that it’s impossible to lose weight is belied by all the people who do.
I know the statistics. But that some people do it, and fairly easily, shows that the “impossible” narrative is missing a lot. I myself lost more than 25% of my body weight more than a decade ago and have kept it off since.
It wasn’t even that hard. I know that I’m a bad comparison because I’m as stubborn as a rampaging hippopotamus, but other people do it too. Not so “impossible,” then.
