This is why you should stop making excuses, and start losing weight.

Don't put it off!

Apparently, around 40% of the UK population claim to be on a diet at any one time. This is a huge amount, and means that something clearly isn’t right with regards to the way we as individuals view and understand our own health.


Even back from when I was a child, I remember that my Mum was always on a diet. The phrase “I’m starting again on Monday” was something which I heard an awful lot. The thing is, this frame of mind might not be the best to try and lose weight with.

Firstly, Monday isn’t the best day to want to start a new diet on. It is well known to be the least favourite day of the week, with adults going back to work and children going back to school. A better day to start would be on a Wednesday, as you would be in the swing of the week by this point and would be able to change your eating habits relatively easily.

Secondly, have you ever stopped to think about the number of days that you’re wasting by delaying the time you start your diet? If you think about it, if you have a bad day on a Friday and then decide to start your diet again on Monday, this means that three out of every seven days are bad in diet terms. You could lose almost double the amount of weight if you take every day as a separate entity rather than taking every week instead.

Get your head around starting your diet immediately instead of putting it off. You will feel much better when you start losing weight, and you will be able to reach your goal much easier if you start straight away rather than setting another day to begin without thinking all that much about it.

Excellent motivator. And I agree completely. As an American, we tend to get obsessed with "diets". The problem is that "diets" DIE. They end. Lifestyle change is forever. I've been submitting exercise tips and tricks that I've learned with my lifestyle change. I'll follow you now for extra motivation.
