Why you're destined to fail at losing weight!

Weight loss is easy right?

We all know what to do;

*Eat Healthy Food
*Cut back on sugar
*Count calories
*Exercise More

What could be easier?

So why are we not all running around in size 10's?  Why is the average dress size for a woman in the UK a size 16?  Why are obesity rates on the rise, putting pressure on health services up and down the country?

The reason is there are SO many ways to be successful at weight loss, there's slimming clubs, there's over 2,000 different diets books out there, there's also all these 'weight loss goo-roo's' - in fact, there's probably just too much information!  Information overload!!

You end up starting on the Atkins diet (low carb) then switching to the High Carb Diet, then there's low fat diets, then there's high fibre diets.....blah, blah, blah; then you get the 'Sue from accounts lost 10 stone on * diet (add your own)', or 'Rory from the pub lost his belly by doing * (insert random diet or exercise fad here)'.

Confusion reigns!

So, by the end you just end up eating everything there is, and sitting on the sofa wondering where to start.

Am I right?

Clarity is your problem - you see there are ONE HUNDRED ways to be successful, but there's only ONE way to fail.

I've studied this loads, with the ladies I coach and also reading research journals, and what the 'goo-roo's don't tell you is this;

'All diet and exercise programs will work. But only if you do.'

That's right - there is no Wizard of Oz, it's not a 'dark art', there are no secret magic pills or shakes.

There's only you and your mindset.

I use scientifically proven health methods when I'm coaching my (mainly) ladies.  We don't focus on weight loss, as it's irrespective to the health benefits that a nutritious diet and a good exercise & wellness program can bring.  Weight loss is a happy bi-product of this - but, it's what people want.

I can teach you how to lose weight quickly (we did this in one of our challenges, averaged 7lbs in a week), but that's not the key.  The key is to find something you love to do and stick with it.  And that's what I try to do with my clients, create programs and classes that keep them interested and motivated, so that they will stick to the program.

The ONE way to fail, is to STOP.

So I focus on my clients not stopping! Simples!

Sounds easy right, you and I both know that it is not.  It's my job to keep my 'Tribe' motivated and they, in turn, motivate me back (I'm human, after all).  But what if you're on your own, and you don't have a support network of like-minded people to help and guide you?  Then, I suggest that you find one, because the easiest way to stop your program is if you're not accountable to anyone, it's hard enough to lose weight as it is, but it's even harder to do it alone.

Have you lost weight only to put it all back on again?  Do you find it hard to stick to a program?  What are your blind spots - alcohol, chocolate, crisps? Find these kind of things out and make a start today, find something you love to do and do it.

Let me know how you get on.
