Weight loss has always been a challenge especially for those still starting out. To get yourself ready for a lifestyle change, you will need a strategic weight loss program, a diet plan, the correct gear, and most importantly, the right mindset. Without enough motivation and focus, all your efforts may be for nothing.

Here are 5 common excuses we make that slow down weight loss and how to counter this unhealthy mindset!

1) “I’m too busy”

With a little research, you will find that the world’s most successful individuals always allocate time in their day to take care of their health and exercise – even if it’s just for 5 minutes. If you can find time in your day for things and people that are important, remember that keeping healthy and staying fit should be a top priority as well! You would be surprised how exercises that are as short as 5, 10, 15, minutes can be very effective.

2) “I’m too tired”

Believe it or not, physical activity is a powerful pick-me-up that helps reduce fatigue and boosts energy levels – so stick to your weight loss program! When done regularly, exercising can keep you feeling much more energized, refreshed and alert!

3) “I’m too fat/old/sickly”

There are various types of weight loss programs fit for different body types and needs. It’s never too late to start working on your strength and physical well-being to change your current state! Consult your Provider for a safe yet effective routine.

4) “Exercising hurts and it’s hard”

Not all exercises hurt, and just because you don’t feel the pain doesn’t mean there is no gain. Build your fitness routine by simply taking walks, swimming, playing golf, gardening, cleaning the house, taking the stairs, and other ways to get a little physical activity into your day.

5) “I’m not sporty”

Not everyone who exercises are athletic. All it takes is figuring out simple ways to be more active and get a little energy going. Anything that gets you moving is better than sitting on the couch all day.
