4 Excuses Preventing You from Losing WeightAuthor: Oksana Aron, MD Source: Weight Loss NYC Jan 27, 2014
What’s your excuse?
Sometimes, the only person standing in the way of your own success is staring straight back at you in the mirror. How many times have you sabotaged your weight loss plans? How many times did you give up too soon?
You’re not the only one. Losing weight is just as tough mentally as it is physically. If you can get your mind in shape first, the rest of your body will follow. Do any of the following excuses sound familiar?
I’m too tired
Did you know that regular exercise could actually boost your energy? Perhaps you need to kick it up a notch—or get started on an exercise regime—in order to feel refreshed and start losing some weight.
I don’t have enough time
We always have more time than we think. How many hours a day do you spend watching silly stuff on YouTube? Reading the paper? Clicking through the channels? Swap those idle times for doing something healthy such as taking walks or learning to cook healthy food to set your weight loss goals in action.
I don’t want to get injured
If you start off easy and take baby steps, there won’t be any need to worry about injuring yourself from light exercise. Try working out with a friend or family member and go at your own pace. Or, work with a trainer who can customize a workout for you.
It’ll be too expensive
Eating healthier foods will save you money in the long run. Whole foods are cheaper than packaged, processed foods, and they'll keep you healthier, which means your health care costs will be cheaper as well. Special diet foods aren't required.
You don’t need a gym membership
If you can stay motivated and work out on your own. Walking, jogging, stair climbing, riding bikes and swimming don’t cost you a thing. You can also check out your local community center for low-cost fitness classes.
There are countless excuses that get in the way of losing weight. No matter what yours is, today could be the first day to a healthier life if you first switch to a positive attitude.
