So why aren’t you living life in your ideal body?
Based on over 2 decades of experience (plus a bit more now!!) of working closely with people, both men and women and young and old, I have observed that there are many complex reasons that make weight loss a challenge – reasons that go deeper than simply calories-in versus calories-out.
I’m talking about the life issues that get in the way of your success.
Here are 5 obstacles to this problem and the solutions that I have found that will unlock your best body ever!
1. You don’t want to be bothered.
It’s in your DNA to avoid pain and seek out pleasure. Unfortunately this works against you when trying to get fit. In your mind, it’s painful (or at least uncomfortable) to deny yourself the tasty food that you crave and to exert yourself with exercise.
I found a 2017 message from Tony Robbins that backs this up. It’s 15 mins long but really worth a listen and I’d love to know what you think. Check it out Here:
2. You don’t want to wait for the good stuff.
There’s good news: extra calories are not your only option to stimulate the pleasure centre of your brain. Find an activity or two that make you smile and indulge in those regularly.
- A walk outside
- A good book
- A night out to the movies or theatre
- A spa day
You can also retrain your brain to crave the pleasure of exercise-induced endorphins. Talk about weight gain kryptonite!
3. You are crazy busy.
It’s time to re-prioritise. Let go of your perfectionist standards and remove a few commitments from your schedule so that you are able to cook healthy meals, exercise and get a good night’s sleep. Remind yourself that taking care of your health is not a luxury – it’s a necessity!
4. You don’t deserve it.
I believe that you deserve to have a healthy body – and I urge you to dig deep down to uncover why you don’t. Once you conquer your feelings of unworthiness, getting on an exercise and healthy eating plan will be easy.
Take the time to take care of yourself. You DO deserve it.
5. You are afraid.
When you decide to get fit you will need to go through a bushel of changes:
- New diet
- New exercise routine
- New friends at the gym
- New clothes
- New self-image
Focus on all of the ways that losing weight will make your life better. Envision that better life everyday so that it goes from being new and scary to familiar and comfortable.
