I don't get it. I've patched many flat tires.

I guess it means a patch that doesn't work, asshole.

My new favourite quote is

"I guess it means a patch that doesn't work, asshole"

I'm sorry but that made me laugh out loud.

Why does someone not understanding a comment make them an "asshole"? Which, by the way, is technically impossible. Generally when we put people down using ignorant vulgarity, women are "bitches" and men are "assholes" but since a woman can't really be a female dog and a man is more than one part of his body, neither is actually possible for someone to be.

I google searched the term. Doesn't seem to be some well known motivational thought process but rather is a catch phrase for one group. Truth be told, the original post could be construed as spam for said site since it is copyrighted to said site.

I get it....

Dieting without a lifestyle change is much like having a patched flat tire and not put air in it... Well that is how I took it.

Like you have the general idea but the overall results aren't going to get you anywhere.

You can temporarily fix a tire with a patch, but it is still fundamentally flawed. It is not whole.

It's the same way with dieting - a diet can patch the problem and help you lose weight, but the reason you gained in the first place will be there right under the surface, and it will be the first thing to fail when the rest of the system weakens. You can lose weight dieting - hundreds of people have. But to be whole, to be strong all the way around, you have to change your entire lifestyle.

I like your explanation, 4:09.

I have another:

"The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step."

I think sometimes we look at weight loss as the whole. "I have 63 pounds to lose." and it feels overwhelming. Look at it in 5 or 10 pound increments, and it's really just a few steps.

I love PT! Good laughs at every turn!
