Something that you will need to consider is that your ability to exercise is held back by your own disposition. Perhaps you are so depressed; you just can’t make yourself get into a routine. Perhaps you are just so overweight that it hurts to exercise. Most of the time, your exercise is linked with your overeating. Basically, there is a deeper motive for why you feel the way you do. You’ll want to get to the bottom of things before you allow yourself to move on
The first thing that you will want to do is get yourself into therapy. The therapist will help you to understand what it is that is holding you back and they will be able to reach your emotional reasons for your failure. You’ll find that this is not going to do anything for you (physically), but it will begin to make you feel like you carry less emotional and mental baggage. This is the one thing that could encourage you to want to change your life.
You need to know how to deal with your emotions, but you also need to deal with your mental issues. You’ll find that your mental issues will include things that hurt you and also your disgust with yourself. Once you are able to get over the mental blocks, then you’ll be able to work on your defeat and become a success story. You’ll find that if you worry too much on your weight, then you’ll have plenty more set backs. You need to take this time to clear your head.
Next, you’ll want to push yourself to get more active. Instead of spending three hours in front of the TV, take your time to get on the floor and do some leg movements. You’ll notice that when you repeat the movements you’ll be able to feel the exercise working. If you feel that you just can’t fix exercise into your life, then you’ll need to learn how to do the movements while concentrating on something else. This will not only help you make time, but it will also make the workouts go by faster.
You’ll also want to get the help of others. If you have a support system, then you’ll be more inclined to lose the weight. You’ll need to consider getting a partner and getting into a routine, because you’ll be able to save yourself a lot of trouble. You’ll need to consider that have of your want and need to exercise is in your mind. You will notice that with a partner you will be more inclined to go out and take a walk, but you will also be more inclined to take control over your own negative thoughts and push yourself to be more active.
Pushing yourself is very important as well. You’ll notice that there are going to be days where you simply just don’t feel like it. That’s fine. All you have to do is put in half of your normal time and really push yourself hard through those few minutes. If you normally work out for thirty minutes then work out for 15 minutes, but really try to push yourself to sweat. You’ll find that there are going to be times where you’ll just need to let go of the negative feelings and just try push through.
You’ll find that if you have the emotional support of friends and family, you’ll be able to continue with the workouts and begin to see a huge difference in the way that you approach eating and exercising. Keep in mind that this is mostly on your hands and if you don’t make yourself workout, then you’ll lose your momentum and you’ll never recover.
