7 Signs you Self-Sabotage

Self-sabotage is huge and a hugely over-looked area. Losing weight and getting fit isn’t just about a following a plan. And that’s what bugs me. The weight loss industry pretends the next big thing is going to get you results.  Follow this and this time, you’ll do it. They don’t care. It’s just to make money, not to get results. Not to have sustainable, long-term results. Not to get you on the right path, where you build healthy habits, and feel really good, inside and out.

But you want to know the secret to weight loss/health and fitness?

Eat more veg

Eat more protein

Do cardio

Do resistance training

Drink more water


That’s it. Its simple. But it’s simple not to do, and that’s why many of us need trainers. And that’s OK. It’s OK to be like that. It’s OK to be one of those people that when it comes to their health, they need accountability.

Anyway, if that’s the secret to weight loss, why do so many of us find it hard to firstly achieve their goals, and secondly, maintain it for life.


This may be down to you self-sabotaging it on yourself. Answer the following questions truthfully:

  • Do you worry a lot about the future and what is going to happen?
  • Do you forget all your accomplishments and lack pride in who you are an what you have accomplished?
  • Do you constantly compare yourself to others and feel badly when compared to them?
  • Do you not believe that you deserve to accomplish goals and that you are entitled to what you want?
  • Do you always feel something is missing in your relationships or find fault with the other person?
  • Do you feel you have no reason for being? No purpose in life?
  • Do you find that you speak a lot and think a lot about what is going wrong?

If you answered yes to a few above, more than likely you are sabotaging any chance you have of success, before it happens. In order to find out why you do this, you need to dig deep.

And when you know the answers to why you do this, you can start to work on yourself. Having low or little value in yourself is one of the biggest reasons many women self-sabotage. A lack of confidence and  low self-esteem is like a big barrier to getting where you really want to be. And all this can be happening subconsciously. You may not even know you’re doing it until you actually sit down and think about it.

If you’re feeling really stuck at the moment, and one more diet plan just isn’s going to cut it, I recommend you really start to take time out for yourself to think about all this.

Taking a half hour in the morning, getting up a half hour earlier than you normally get up, and sitting in silence and writing down how you feel, what you love about yourself, and hoe you’re going to fix this, can really help, and would be a brilliant start.

The most important thing is to get out of this cycle, to break free and start to lead the life you really want to lead And become the person you really want to become.

It may be time for you to quit putting a band aid on the problem, and working on getting  real, long term, transformational results.
