10 Reasons Why You’re Not Losing Weight- Part-5
Reason 9) Poor Attitude and Believe System
A big reason people struggle to lose weight is they have a poor attitude and belief system. Have you ever caught yourself saying the following phrase “I can’t?” ‘I can’t lose weight” “I can’t exercise.” Most who say “I can’t” really believe they can’t. But the reality is they can, they just choose not to. To lose weight and keep it off you really need to believe in your self and say “I can and I will!” Never underestimate the power of positive thinking. If you really want to exercise and eat correctly you can you just have to make it a priority in your life and believe in yourself and follow through.
Reason 10) No Support
Having a support system is such a huge part of losing weight. So many struggle to lose weight on their own, without some form of help and support. Studies show when people are trying to lose weight those who have support from a friend, family member or personal trainer stick with an exercise and eating plan 75% more than those who do not. I recommend attaching yourself to friend or family member with some of the same goals to help you along the way. Never underestimate the buddy system when it comes to exercising more and eating better. Enlisting a personal trainer/fitness expert could be a great way to stay educated, accountable and motivated to reach your goals.
