Why Cant I Lose Weight - Focusing On What You Can Do

Why Cant I Lose Weight  -  Focusing On What You Can Do

When we set ourselves a weight loss goal, it is easy to get caught up in the fact that we are so far away from that goal making, it easy to become demotivated and disheartened. The reason for this is that we are focusing on a distant point in the future that seems impossible in the present moment. So if you are asking yourself why cant I lose weight - focusing on the here and now can really help to make the positive shift that you desire.

So what does that mean exactly? It means that rather than spending all your energy focusing on the end goal that seems so far away, you instead focus on what you 'can' do in the present moment to make a difference today and guess what - once you practice this, you will come to realise that this is all you need to do. Moment by moment, step by step - these all add up to great results in the long run. In addition, focusing on the present moment will empower you more as it is all you need to worry about having control over.

Here are some examples of what you 'can' do starting today:

  • enjoying a ten minute walk
  • listening to your body
  • eating when you are hungry
  • eating slowly at mealtimes
  • stopping when you are full
  • only eating at the table
  • saying no when you are not hungry
  • taking a nap or rest when you are tired
  • enjoying an exercise class
  • regularly saying your affirmations to yourself
  • listing 10 things in your gratitude journal each day

and many, many more...

Can you see how powerful focusing on the present moment can be? It changes our whole perspective from I will do this (future tense), to I can do this right now (present tense). Even if you don't do it with every moment of the day, you can make a commitment to start with one or two things that you want to take back control over and make these your focus before gradually adding others. Practice and consistency soon change habits permanently and if you have been asking yourself - why cant I lose weight, you will soon find that making small tweaks to what you do on a day to day basis is enough to create the results you desire very quickly.

So what are you going to start focusing on in the present moment. Get a pen and paper and take some time to think about all your current daily activities that you 'can' do something about. List as many as you can think of and choose just one or two that you can commit to changing today and go do them - you will be glad that you did when you find that consistent action is all it takes for you to learn how to become slim and make those permanent, lasting changes.
