I’ve been in the fitness industry for years now and over that time, I’ve learned a thing or two about weight loss and the journey that most people take when they commit to it.
I’ve heard every single reason not to start this journey, and I’ve heard every single reason why people fall off the wagon.
“You know how the holidays are …”
“I was sick.”
“It’s my schedule. I can’t find the time.”
“I don’t have the right equipment.”
“Oh, man. I was too tired.”
“Work is really busy right now.”
I’m not saying these aren’t real issues, but they are the common ones that stop people in their tracks. In fact, if you pick up any health or fitness magazine, you’ll notice the headlines are all designed to overcome one of these issues.
But as I said, I’ve been doing this awhile and there is one weight loss obstacle that I NEVER hear people talk about. Not even the experts.
The most under-rated weight loss obstacle is … drum roll please …
Say what now?
It’s really hard to ask for help or assistance because it means we’re not smart enough, good enough, fit enough, healthy enough, etc.
After all, if we were smart enough to figure out the best weight loss plan then we’d be doing that, right?
Our pride stops us so frequently.
I bet if we look at other areas of our lives, we’ll notice the same thing.
Emotions, like pride, are meant to help us, too. Sometimes pride can be a good thing. It’s usually pride that will motivate us to do something like become a better person or become more likeable.
So pride is not bad. I’m not saying that.
However, I am saying that we have to understand the good and the bad ways it affects our lives.
