The truth is that once you start to exercise and lose weight, the longer you keep at it----the easier it gets. Mostly, because your new choices and behaviors become routine---automatic. However, once that routine is broken (for example--moving, change in marital status, having a child etc.) the excuses come rolling in---and excuses are the enemy of responsibility, change and success!
We make excuses for many reasons, but mostly because we're not fully committed to what we want to change, so it's easy for outside influences to distract us from our intended goals. If you always have an answer ready to contradict, your common and not--so common excuses, you'll have a greater likelihood of reaching and maintaining your weight-loss goal. In order to help you to stay on course, find ways to "bust" or break your excuses.
Thank you for your comments on my blog. No, not sick, just disheartening to those of us who aren't morning people. LOL But like I said, I've "learned" to be better in the mornings. Sometimes I will even smile when I don't feel like it. Haaaaa!
