The Blame Game, aka excuses, is the biggest reason people gain weight and keep it on.
They will think of million reasons that they have gained weight or a million things to blame it on rather then themselves and the habits that got them there.
They want the weight to come off “but” <— that being the key word that let’s you know if you are playing the game, there is always something that is in the way.
That thing in the way is the challenge or the obstacle and most people see the peak of the problem and think it is just too hard and takes too much energy and they “don’t have the time or energy for that.”
It’s just my body type, it’s my thyroid, it’s genetic, it’s my age….I’ve heard a lot and I’ve seen a lot…a lot of people not letting their excuses define them. They stop blaming their problems on something or someone and find a way.
Otherwise, this means that changing doesn’t feel worth the effort.
Sure, they might be willing to throw some money at it, but they don’t want to put in the work.
Well, guess what..?! Choosing the easy path is what got you where you are! And if you want something to change, you have to choose the other path. You have to dig yourself out of the whole, the debt that you got yourself in.
Think of weight loss like getting yourself out of debt. Say you have 8 credit cards (8 bad habits), we could work on all of them a little at a time or we can dive in and pay off one at a time. But consistency is key. You cannot pay $60 have interest of $30 and then add another $40 in purchases and expect to see results.
Gosh, you might even need to “get a part-time job” to pay it off faster (cut out that weekend ice cream).
And I don’t want to forget to mention that in the process of getting yourself out of calorie debt you might actually save money and learn some key habits to get yourself out of financial debt too.
Mind-Body work can be amazing for your life.
