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!
