Knowing Why You Want To Lose Weight Is Key

Hello, I’m Rick Taylar, and this is Weight Loss Mindset!

What inspires you to lose weight? 

Is there something that motivates you to continue even when you want to give up? 

When you search and find exactly why you want to lose weight, it's far more important than how?

Find YOUR why, and let it drive you to achieve the results you desire.

You know you want to lose weight. Hopefully you know how to lose weight with the correct diet and exercise regimen. But, do you have a clear idea on "why"?

Why a "why" is so important

Your weight loss “why” is your motivation. Let's say a friend or someone asks you why you want to lose weight and you don’t have a clear answer. Will your weight loss goal be successful? Probably not!

Longevity could be a "why" for you

Doesn't everyone want a long, healthy life? We all have that choice. It's an undeniable fact that carrying an excess of unhealthy weight shortens your life. Sometimes by many years. The most common killers in America are a group of illnesses called Metabolic Syndrome. They're especially common in overweight people. These life-shortening diseases are things like diabetes, stroke, heart failure, hypertension, and other related conditions.

The ability to move your body easier could be your why

Another excellent "why" for you could be mobility or activity. It’s a great "why because it’s also a great "how."

What about mental health as your why?

Another "why" is about happiness and self-esteem. Studies have shown that engaging in physical activity makes you happier and more mentally healthy – whether you’re overweight or not. Physical activity makes people feel better.

Caring about family or friends is a great why

Maybe you don’t really care about your health or really haven’t found an activity that you care about and don’t feel the need to improve your mental or physical health. But, are there other people in your life that love you? That are worried about you and your health? When you don't have your own "why", you can always use someone else as your "why."

There are so many reasons a "why" can help you to lose weight. There are many things that can be your inspiration if you haven’t found one yet. Take the time to really sit down, contemplate, and find your why and be the best YOU that you can be.
