Although I'll probably be wary of it and just eat less for awhile. I've gone up / down ~20-25lbs before and whenever my weight starts to bother me I just automatically eat less 'cause fat starts to get annoying / feels weird which is one of the few things that'll really motivate me to change.
I suppose I don't really understand what faith in willpower means. If you want something to change badly enough, you'd change it. Otherwise, why are you even complaining? It sounds like you want something to be different, but if you don't change something, what could you expect to be different? Eating less is the obvious way to lose weight and perhaps being wary of what you eat would be beneficial too. Cardio would also speed up the process if you cared enough.
