What is stopping you achieving your goals?

It’s so important as you make this journey through life, that you accomplish what you want to achieve.  And that’s goes for weight loss and fitness too. It’s such a shame to see people in Ireland so unhappy with their bodies, knowing that they have the power to do something about it.  A

s the owner of your body, you have to accept responsibility. You have to get to a point where you decide that enough is enough, that you’re sick and tired of moaning about what you wished you looked like.

Being fit and healthy, if you don’t have any long term illness, is completely achievable. It’s difficult, but achievable. And I think it’s so difficult, not because we love food, or we’re lazy, but it’s fear of the unknown. It’s saying goodbye to that crutch you turn to at night for comfort.

It’s facing up to reality and confronting your problems head on, it’s figuring out what you’re so unhappy about in your life and facing it. Comfort eating, self-sabotage and an unwillingness to lose weight are all just symptoms of much bigger problems. yet it’s so easy to blame it all on how you look.

What if you didn’t have the comfort of giving out about your body anymore? What if you didn’t have the comfort of a packet of biscuits anymore? I think you’d find yourself emotional, teary, and upset. It’s tough, it’s so tough, but my God, when you come out the other end, it’s indescribable. If you put all those feelings into a workout, and focus on getting fit, it’s so therapeutic.

So my point is this. Are you overweight? Are you unhappy with your fitness levels or shape? Then make the decision not to spend your whole life avoiding the issue so you don’t have to face up to what’s making you really unhappy.  If you want it badly enough, you’ll go get it.

Don’t be afraid to try, or fail, just keep on giving it a go!
