There are SO MANY good reasons to lose weight.
Why then, is it SO HARD to stay motivated? Why is it so hard to actually keep the weight off?
The answer is simple. It’s easy to stay the same, but it can be hard to make changes. Think about this, you have spent the past, insert your age here, number of years developing eating habits. Those habits can be hard to change.
We know that we want to enjoy some of those good reasons for losing weight, but in the moment, when we’re presented with cake and ice cream, we have a hard time choosing the long term good reasons over the immediate pleasure of the cake and ice cream.
Also, if eating were only an action we did to fuel our bodies, it might be a little easier to simply eat something different, choose a different fuel. But, because eating has become something we do for pleasure, enjoyment, social interaction, entertainment, and even buffering emotional stress, our relationship with eating makes it hard to make changes.
