Losing weight or fat loss can feel like a never ending battle. One day you jump on the scales and you are down, the next day you are up. You feel like you have been eating healthily and that your clothes should start to feel a little bit looser around the waist.
You ask yourself, Why am I doing this? it’s just not working. Maybe my body is just supposed to be this way. I am just going to eat whatever I want, it doesn’t make a difference anyway. Sound familiar?
Reasons why you might not be losing weight/ fat
- You don’t really want to change – You start off your sentences by saying things like, I really want to eat better, I want to run more and I will join a gym. You then follow up these statements with your reasons for not changing. I really want to eat better but I don’t have time to cook. I really want to run more but it’s too hot outside and I will join a gym when I have more time.
- You don’t want to track food intake – I want to lose weight but I don’t want to track food. Entering your food into an app or writing it down takes around 5 Mins per day. Having an idea of intake is extremely important if you want to start losing weight. It is estimated that people overeat healthy foods by up to 30%. How many calories are in half an avocado? a lot more than you think! Track your food, make it a habit.
- You don’t exercise enough – I want to go to the gym but I have to work late! Work is always going to get in the way if you allow it. Your planned 4 sessions a week can quickly become 1 or 2. Choose a time of the day when your exercise session will be uninterrupted. Wake up early at the weekend, do what you have to.
