Are You Scared to Lose Weight? : Weight Loss Fear

Growing up most of us have been programmed to fear failure. What happened when we made a mistake in school? We got an “F.”

What happened when we made a mistake at work? The fear of failure comes from the fear of what will happen if we fail. So it is better not to go after weight loss than to fail. This is the wrong attitude. We should not fear weight loss failure. We should fear not trying to lose weight at all. We should also fear procrastination. Those are the enemies of weight loss. Those are the enemies of poor health.

If we attempt to lose weight, we have a chance to lose it. It is when we do nothing that we actually fail because we will remain the same weight. However, as we age that extra weight will have a multiplying effect on our health, so that we actually don’t remain the same, we go backwards.

A man in his 70’s told me that he exercised daily because he is fighting old age with everything he has. We need to have this attitude if we want a healthy future. We should not fear losing weight. We should fear what will happen if we don’t. We should fear not doing anything to get our weight down. We should fear staying the same weight.

Let’s get rid of the fear of losing weight. Let’s change our attitude and let’s get it done.
