As I pointed out in the previous post – Day 1 – there are 7 common thinking patterns directly related to why overweight individuals put things off and don’t fix their weight problem.
No 2 is many people fear failure and will base their self-esteem and self-image on their accomplishments.
If they fail at their weight loss efforts, they feel they have been a failure as a human being.
It might be too dangerous to try, so rather than risk failure, they do nothing at all.
So, if you’ve faced this predicament before and fear of failure is still an issue, then perhaps it’s time to reframe your approach.
How about aiming for a modest reduction in weight?
Research has shown that reducing total body weight by just 5 per cent can have substantial health benefits such as reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes.
