I’ve been chubby-to-overweight since I was old enough to remember. I was always athletic up until around the age of 30. Now, I can’t seem to find a way to help me regain even 25% of the motivation that I once had to get out and do something physical. I’m the type of guy who has always believed in working hard for everything that I have. I understand that efforts tend to pay off with results.
So, why is it so hard for me to do what I need to do to be healthier and in better shape?
I have the motivation and commitment to eat healthy when I want to do so. I’ve challenged myself to going periods of time excluding certain unhealthy food items with little-to-no problem at all. But, why does exercise escape me? Why will I not take just 30 minutes a day to do something that will benefit me in so many ways? I offer tons of advice to people who seek it, yet I can't seem to give myself any that works more than 48 hours. I know that once I get started, then I'll keep it up. But "getting started" for me means being consistent for at least a week.
I know the health consequences of being overweight. I know the benefits of being slimmer from a social standpoint. So, tell me what in the world is stopping me? Well, I hope that you can help me out with that. I’m the one looking for some help for a change.
What can you suggest that will help me get motivated to “move something?”
