Top 5 Reasons People Fail to Lose Weight
By Dylan J Alarie

Over the last two years I have conducted research on people who have attempted weight loss on more than one occasion and reasons why they were not successful.  I discovered these top 5 reasons why people are unsuccessful and how a simple tweak in mindset can help one reach their goal. text dont give up on weight loss

The first and the most common reason people don’t even try is that they are scared to fail. Some believe that if they fail, it will set them back or make them lose hope. Some are scared about what others will think and say if the attempt to lose weight fails.  Hearing remarks such as “I don’t know why she tried that” and “I told her that crazy diet wouldn’t work” can be hurtful and embarrassing to someone who is trying to lose weight. The best way to overcome this feeling is thinking about your “WHY”. What is your “WHY” and is it really that important? Your why is the real, “deep inside you” kind of reason you want to lose weight. It can’t be the obvious, such as looking good at the class reunion.  Your why must be something deep that will make it worth it to take that big step forward.  You want a healthy body so that you can have a baby or you want to be able to chase your grandchildren around the playground and watch them  grow up.

The second reason people fail is they suffer from information overload. Many of us are constantly reading magazines, books, researching information on the Internet, joining weight loss forums, etc, but we  never seem to find time to really get started. When we decide to start, there is so much information that we don’t know where to begin. This is common with many people. How much exercise equipment, videos, and magazines have you purchased?

Thirdly, people tend to give up to soon. Their expectations are high when they start their weight loss journey.  The first set back or  “plateau” will feel like failure and they start to losing hope. What you need to understand is that everything you do in life has set backs. Go and speak with any successful business man/women and ask what setbacks they have had before. Road blocks are the best way to know that you are getting somewhere.

Another reason that people fail so often is they just do not have enough passion. They tell their friends and family they want to lose weight, and for a while they want to, but they don’t give themselves a good enough reason to get the job done. That takes us back to what was said in the second paragraph about your “why”. If. when you think about the reason you want to lose weight and it doesn’t excite you, or give you goose bumps and makes your heart beat faster, how are you going to get through the tough parts when you hit a road block or give in to temptation?

Lastly, I want to talk about the hardest thing NOT to do. Taking shortcuts is something everyone will try to lose weight.This will depend on if you recognize what you are doing and if you have enough “why” to overcome the obstacles. Starving yourself and thinking about surgery is a shortcut and you must put in the work to see results. So ask yourself, why do you want to lose weight? What is the reason you want to reach your goal? Is it to fit in to some favorite jeans that you have? Is it because you want to wear a bikini again, or maybe you want to spice up your love life again. Whatever the reason make sure it means a lot to you and use that”why” to drive you to excel.
