Losing weight and sticking to it has about just as much to do with your physical efforts as your mental efforts. What I mean by that is this—your inner dialogue and thoughts like “I will start tomorrow” can totally sabotage your efforts before you even get started.
Banish these seven destructive inner excuses and thoughts in order to clear the way for weight loss success…
1. I Don’t Have Time to Exercise
With work, family, social, and numerous other obligations, it’s understandable that time is difficult to come by. However, having time for exercise and making time for exercise are two very different things.
For instance, it’s easy to blame a busy schedule on weight gain when you have too many other things to do. However, it comes down to priorities and there will always be an excuse not to make time to fit exercise into your schedule. So do your health a favor by choosing to spend some quality time on an enjoyable physical activity. Once it becomes a habit, you’ll realize how much more energy you have to tackle all of the other things on your agenda.
