Are you the type of person who would love to lose weight but you keep putting it off for another day? There are many excuses which people make which I will write about in this article, but it is now time to become strong and to stop making excuses. Be inspired and start your weight loss program today.
I have to admit that I am the type of person who a few years ago would have answered yes to the question above. In my late teens, I was far to over-weight and was not happy about it. I often thought about the different ways in which I could try to become slimmer, but that is all I would do, think.
These are the reasons I would make at that stage of my life, to put off my attempts at losing weight:
I am too tired. In the morning, I would wake up with very good intentions. I would tell myself that after I finish work, I would go for a short jog. I would then do some fitness work at home such as using the dumb-bell weights which I had bought many months ago. I would also try a few press-ups and also start watching what I was eating. I was very aware that my diet included many of those fatty foods which the experts advise people to avoid.
After work, I would return home and would then make up the excuse that I am too tired. Instead of going for a jog today, I would start my fitness regime tomorrow, etc. I may as well eat that fatty food which is in the fridge as otherwise, it is just a waste of money. I will ensure that I stop buying any more of these fatty meals, but for now, I will eat it until it all goes.
My body is aching. This was a regular excuse. I would tell myself that if I start exercising today, I may well do myself more damage than good. I had better for health reasons, wait until my body feels better. Of course, the aches and pains were not half as bad as I was making out.
I do not have enough time. I would often delay any fitness work as I always seemed to have something else to do which I believed were more important. In reality, they were not, and they could easily have been completed after my hours of exercise. Yet again it was just a way of me getting out of something which did not seem that fun.
It could be dangerous. Going back to my idea of jogging, I then had the bright idea that it could actually be quite risky. What if I come across a madman with a knife? This would have been quite a good excuse if I was running when it was dark, for example early in the morning or late at night. This, however, was not the case, I had been thinking of jogging at around half past four in the afternoon.
I eventually after many years decided to stop making up these excuses. I had to be determined to not only start up a fitness regime but to stick to it. It was not easy at all but after quite a long time I reached a weight which I was happy with.
You can do the same, therefore stop making excuses and start your weight loss plan today.
