There are so many quick fixes out there.  Why aren’t more people addressing the root of the problems rather than the symptoms. When it comes to weight loss, the issue is often times not the extra weight someone has, but the psychological reasons behind it. If I meet someone that has weight to lose, I don’t judge them because of the way they look. I realize that deep inside there are things they are struggling with that keeps them from obtaining the goals they desire. Are there times that it’s physical? Sure, in cases like thyroid, being on a steroid type medication for a period of time, and even old injuries can contribute in some way. But often there are other things as well. Here are a few things that I see people struggle with.
Weight loss isn’t instant, no matter how much you want it to be. Yes, I know you were able to find that so-and-so diet helped you lose a lot of weight, but how long did it stay off? Did it change your life forever, or just for a short time? Start looking beyond the mirror and begin making lasting changes. Are there side effects of this? Sure! You will have more confidence, feel more secure about yourself, be happier, less stressed, and never have to do another last minute diet again. Sounds like a win-win to me.
