It is true that weight loss is as much of a mental challenge as it is a physical one. If you cannot change your mentality regarding food, exercise, and lifestyle change, then it would be incredibly hard for you to experience long term weight loss and health. In my years of dysfunctional and healthy attempts at weight loss, I have noticed some mindsets that can make losing weight harder.
1. Always Wishing
If you are always wishing to lose weight, to be thinner, or to be fitter, then you most likely won’t make any progress. You can’t keep wishing; you also have to do something about your situation. You have to eat better and exercise regularly. Wishes don’t come true by themselves. It is up to you to fulfill them.
