If motivation, willpower and control are so wrongly interpreted with regards to getting in shape how do we make sense of any of it?
The issue stems from the desire for control. The worse you have felt about your fitness the more desperate for control you become. You may pretend to give up and feel defeated but deep inside you just feel out of control.
