7 Reasons You Can’t Lose Weight
So, you want to be slimmer and tone your body but your weight just won’t budge. There are few things more frustrating than that.
Consider the following 7 “Weight Loss Limiters” and discover what could be squelching your results.
Limiter #1: Your Mind
Your mind is your greatest asset for achieving any goal. However, until it’s been programmed for success it will do more to derail your efforts than anything.
If a negative thought comes to mind, reject it. If you see yourself as out-of-shape or overweight, forget it. Decide you want to be fit and think of yourself that way. Reprogram your mind to see yourself as you want to be.
Make up your mind you can achieve the body you’ve always dreamed of and be the change you want.
Limiter #2: Your Fear
Most of us fear change – even if it’s positive.
Motivational speaker and author, Anthony Robbins, has outlined three beliefs to conquer fear and create lasting change.
1. Believe that something MUST change. Don’t just consider a change, but realize something MUST change.
2. Believe that YOU must change it. Take responsibility to lose weight. While others can help, in the end you’re the one who makes it happen.
3. Believe you CAN change it. Despite past failures, believe you can reach your weight loss goal, put your mind to it, and be unstoppable.
Limiter #3: Your Excuses
Excuses for being out-of-shape will keep you right where you’re at. Sure, excuses take less effort than actions, but only actions will get you where you want to go.
Expect more from yourself and focus on the benefits you’ll enjoy once you achieve your goal. What’s more important, excuses or results?
Limiter #4: Your Commitment
Ever try to lose weight only to give up a few weeks later? If you truly want to succeed, your commitment to the process is critical.
The margin between success and failure is bridged by your commitment so don’t give up until you achieve your goal. If you don’t give up, you’ll never fail.
Limiter #5: Your Diet
It’s no secret that if you consistently eat the wrong food, all your efforts will be in vain. Stop eating junk foods and replace them with whole foods, such as high-quality proteins, vegetables, fruits, and healthy fats. These are all vital for health and weight loss. The Exercise Coach® Nutrition Playbook™ is a tremendous guide and a proven game plan for weight loss success.
Limiter #6: Your Exercise Intensity
Are you exercising at the right intensity? Consider this:
While generally safe, low intensity activities such as walking are time-consuming and have little effect on fitness and weight loss. The demands on the body’s systems (muscular, skeletal, and cardiovascular) are simply too low.
Increasing intensity to a moderate level is a step in the right direction, but prolonged “cardio”, especially in the absence of strength training, still requires minimal muscular activation and typically results in short-lived progress and limited wellness benefits.
High(er) intensity exercise can definitely kick fat loss into gear. However, high intensity does not mean high risk. When done properly, you can be confident you are working hard enough to force positive change in your body without worrying if it’s too much or too dangerous.
The Exercise Coach proprietary technology coupled with our highly skilled and certified Coaches have led to our trademarked Right Intensity Training.
Right intensity Training™ is individually meaningful exercise that safely optimizes muscle activation. The resulting improvement in muscle quality leads to more efficient fat loss, cardiovascular vitality, bone health and other vital wellness outcomes.
Limiter #7: Your Support
Unfortunately, those who try to lose weight on their own are less accountable and more likely to fail.
How hard do you exercise when no one is watching?
How precise is your nutrition when no one is asking?
How much motivation do you have if you go at it alone and don’t have to answer to anyone?
Recruiting friends, family or a fitness coach to keep you accountable to your nutrition and exercise program will most certainly help you reach your weight loss goal.
It’s easy to see the reason(s) you can’t lose weight, isn’t it? Address your Weight Loss Limiters, get serious about your results, and begin the last weight loss program that you’ll ever do.
