Why I can’t lose weight!

Why_can't_I_lose_weight.jpg

I’m writing this post in hopes that someone out there can resonate with it. I write this jokingly but at the same time it is seriously frustrating trying to get the body you want, especially after having children. However, I hear it can be done… I will let you know when I figure out how (lol). Lets get to my list of reasons why I can’t lose weight.

I am an emotional eater

I am a pretty anxious person to say the least and I find a great amount of my comfort in extremely stressful times comes from a big bowl of ice-cream and a chocolate bar. Now this is a tough habit to break (especially when it’s that time of the month). It doesn’t help that I feel I’m going to kill someone if I don’t have at least one sweet a day which brings me to my next reason.

I am addicted to sugar

Hello, my name is Raneisha and I am a sugar addict. I first found out about this problem when I went to spend a year in Europe. I was pregnant and was told my sugar levels were way too high. I had to have the amount of sugar I was eating measured weekly and I had to go one day without ANY sugar even natural sugars for a blood test. Needless to say that day I turned into an absolute monster. I never knew you could suffer actual withdrawals from not eating sweets.

Exercising consistently is hard

I will admit I have very little self-discipline. I can not afford a personal trainer and therefore without someone there literally telling me what to do I tend to stop after the first 10 minutes or so. One thing I DID find helpful was trying to find a class I could actually afford to attend and join. It also helps to have someone to go with because then you feel obligated to go and for people with no self-discipline like myself you know you will probably stop going if it were only up to you. So find a buddy and make sure it’s one that is actually consistent otherwise you’ll both end up watching fitness videos on Youtube while eating ice-cream.

So those are just a few of the reasons I am struggling with my fitness goals? How is your fitness journey going if you are on one? It’s hard. I am so bad at it that it’s hilarious.

Comment below if you have some of the same struggles and share with someone you know feels the same way I do! You’re not alone girl I got you!

  Until next time bye!

  1. I had trouble until I made fitness part of learning. If I’m learning a new skill, I accomplish new things every time I go in. I become so determined to reach educational goals that dieting becomes instinctual. “I’m going to eat high protein today so I can kill that new move tomorrow.” Whether it’s hoop dance, juggling, tap, or parkour, reaching for goals that have nothing to do with the way I look has made me so much more fit.

    1. I’m glad you found something that works for you. Unfortunately many of the skills I am most interested in involve sitting at a computer and typing haha. However, I have always loved dancing and recently took up Krav Maga with my husband at a local martial arts studio. I love it and I enjoy learning the moves so hopefully I can become as determined as you are in the future. Appreciate you reading.
