Stop Making Excuses and Start Seeing Results!

Friday, January 8th, 2010

So you decided to lose weight, get in shape, and take control of your life, but then…here come the excuses. Why do people make excuses when it comes to losing weight? Is it because they’re not ready to give up the bad habits, not ready to put in the work to lose it, or just not really ready to lose the weight?

As I’m writing this, a particular person comes to mind. This person creates an excuse for just about everything. An excuse for not doing cardio, not eating well, not wanting to exercise with weights…an excuse for everything. I don’t understand it. It seems like it takes more work to constantly create excuses than it does to just do it.

If you are one of these “excuse makers”, I challenge you to STOP with the excuses…NO MORE EXCUSES! The best advice I can give is to start making yourself aware of all the excuses. Hang a calendar on your refrigerator or desk and write on it every single day. Every day you exercise and every day you make an excuse for not exercising. At the end of the week, tally up all the excuses. If you didn’t realize before how often you use excuses…you will when it’s written down in front of you.
