I agree with you and wonder at it myself. I questioned when I did 3 weeks with 0 weightloss! Found out I love fatty foods, even if they are a healthier version.
People get soooo discouraged with change, so I always try to say something positive, if I can, and encourage and say thank you! Which I am doing now.. Thank you!
Change is hard and it is scary. Our mind/ego/innerself/fill-n-the-blank-here gets trapped in believing that if something is different then it makes it wrong or us wrong. When that happens learning stops, or it is with great effort that we open our minds up to something new. We are creatures of habit and no one likes to be wrong.
Too bad we can't all view information as just that. Information that works for us, now or later, and can be discarded when it doesn't work. No fault, guilt or blame. Just information. Oh one more, NO anger!
Always offer kindness and a soft word to the beings around you; You do not know their journey. Your words can be the hug they need or the shove that breaks them.
