Why You Keep Making Excuses for Not Getting Healthy

(and why you still haven’t seen the weight loss results you want)

The excuses you’ve been making for not starting

The first and biggest hurdle towards your weight loss success is - you guessed it - your own self.  Deep down you know you aren’t your healthiest. You don’t feel great and you really do want to start eating better or exercising more.  I think we all instinctively know whether or not we are what’s considered “healthy.” Our inner critic wins out again and again when we imagine ourselves starting a healthy routine.
