One of the most popular reasons why many people do not achieve, or sometimes even attempt to lose weight is because they feel it’s too hard. Are you possibly one who fits into this group? Well! guess what, being fat is hard too!
When you begin a journey to lose weight, it’s going to take some time getting used to. Naturally, your body is going to put up some resistance as you continually force it to get off the couch and hit the pavement to workout. It’s definitely going to be difficult to stick with healthy nutrition with appropriate portion sizes, especially if you’ve been used to eating fast food, pizza, or out at restaurants often.
But anyone who is obese, or even worse morbidly obese, knows that being significantly overweight has its own set of difficulties attributed with all that extra weight they need to lug around.
It’s hard to climb up a couple of flights of stairs without gasping for air and sweating profusely. What about getting dressed in the morning or going to the bathroom – not as easy as it should be huh? Simply getting in and out of the car may have its own set of awkward movements that others do not have to deal with or even think about at all.
Being fat is hard too!
If you currently in an overweight predicament and you’re tired of dealing with everything that’s becoming increasingly difficult for you to do, it’s time to make a change. Sure it will be a little hard and uncomfortable as you get used to new healthy living habits, maintaining proper nutrition, and getting a consistent form of exercise, but think of the alternative.
If you’re unwilling to make a change that will benefit your life and future, there won’t be any change on the scale in your bathroom. There is no one else that can make this decision for you. It’s your life and inevitably you will be the one who will have to deal with the consequences of the lack of attention regarding your health.
Don’t remain glued to the couch eating those disgusting potato chips and guzzling down liters of soda. Look where it has gotten you today. Give up the junk food and all the other crap you have likely been shoveling into your body and let’s change that starting today.
You don’t have to remain stuck in that overweight rut. Remember, being fat is hard too! You have the power to change if you really want it bad enough. Take it a step at a time, week by week, improving your daily living habits one by one so that every day will be conducive to weight loss.
