To succeed with weight loss, you need lots of ‘E’s’ – energy, enthusiasm, efficiency, exercise, and you certainly need to put in lots of effort! Sometimes, however, we find it easier to put in lots of excuses!
You know that after joining Good Habits to change your eating habits and live a healthier lifestyle the excuses may start! You might call them ‘reasons’, convincing yourself as to why you can’t, or shouldn’t, or won’t keep it up!
Change is tough. Old habits really do die-hard. New habits don’t just spring automatically into place. You have to be convinced that this change to a new healthy lifestyle is entirely possible and is more preferable to your old one.
Not being sold altogether on the benefits of such a change is what excuses are all about.
Each time an “excuse” raises its ugly head, reconnect with the benefits and your goal – fight it and stay motivated!
