Why Is it So Hard to Lose Weight?
One of the most difficult things about losing weight is figuring out why it can seem so impossible. After all, you certainly have the motivation you need to lose the weight.
You also most likely know some the things you need to be doing in order to drop the pounds. Still, there are a few different reasons that you need to understand in order to answer the mystery of why this is so difficult.
The first thing that can really hold you back is your attitude. Many people have the completely wrong attitude about food.
They turn to it for comfort and all the wrong reasons. It can even become the enemy for some overweight people.
Food is seen as something that you must fight against instead of being seen as something that is delicious and nourishing.
The fact that food is comforting for some people and the enemy for other people (though they both lead to weight gain) might sound counterintuitive.
Some people love and practically worship food, while some people are fearful of it and hate it because of what it does to them.
These are both unhealthy attitudes toward food — both of them can also lead to weight gain!
Adjusting your attitude about food and understanding that it is there to nourish you and make your body healthy will go a long way in helping you lose weight.
This can be very difficult if you feel that you are addicted to food, or you’re stuck in a pattern of yo-yo dieting. That’s all the more reason why finding a good weight loss program is essential.
Another reason why it’s so hard to lose weight is because you may have unrealistic expectations about weight loss.
You may think it should be a lot easier than it actually is for you. This leads to a lot of frustration, which then leads to many “slip-ups”.
You are so frustrated and may not be seeing the results you want to see, which can make you fall back into old habits.
Another unrealistic expectation you may have is thinking that it’s impossible to lose weight. Once again, this is the opposite problem some people have.
If you think that it’s impossible to lose weight you may never actually put in the effort that’s required to do so.
It is possible to lose weight as long as you have the right methods and the right attitude. Getting your expectations in check is a very important first step before endeavoring on your weight loss journey.
If you’re able to get your attitudes and expectations under control, it will be easier than ever for you to lose 10 pounds in two weeks.
