Stop Quitting on Weight Loss

By Raphael | In Uncategorized | on July 6, 2014

“The second day of a diet is always easier than the first. By the second day, you’re off it.” ~Jackie Gleason

I recently had a conversation with my mother about a struggle I was going through, and that it was beginning to make me feel mentally fatigued. She told me that I should push through even harder and not give up; that the people who keep going when life gets tough ultimately succeed. She went on to say that people quit too easily and usually just at the time they’re going to make progress. That conversation is what inspired this post, so away we go…

You’re an insanely busy executive, or a mom with 3 kids, or a stressed guy who travels more often then he’d prefer for his career. What do you all have in common? You’re quitters. You heard me.

You are a weight loss quitter. Admit it. When it comes to losing fat, you give up quickly, and you give a thousand reasons why you just can’t lose weight right now. You stop talking about it too, “shh…if I don’t say anything, no one will notice.” You know the truth.

You don’t need a new diet, and telling people you don’t have willpower doesn’t cut it either. Your thinking is messed up and the actions you take are even more messed up. You need a complete overhaul. Those thoughts and actions can be turned around, if and only if you’re open to killing the quitting habit.

I’ve worked with all kinds of people just like you and they made the decision to not quit, so I know you can do it.

There are 4 things you must do to end the quitting:

  • • You must be blunt with yourself. You must admit that you do quit and that all your excuses just don’t cut it. So be honest and stop blaming life.
  • • You must be ok with being uncomfortable. The weight loss industry tries to sell you a bunch of crap. You’re going to have to go through some discomfort along the way. This stuff is hard sometimes even when you’re on track.
  • • You must recognize that there is no quick weight loss system that truly works. It’s about a lifestyle change.
  • • You must have a plan. A nutrition and fitness plan is essential, but knowing how to work that plan when your life feels screwed up is just as important. You can’t just wing it.

Your hard work will help you to learn how to enjoy food without it controlling you, and you’ll get in shape and have energy.

It’s time to start, and this time you’re not quitting. And if you feel like you’re going to quit, contact me at raphael@fitbyraphael.com and get some support. I know I can help you.
