Exercise Resistance! - The Secret Barriers that Prevent Weight Loss
Getting started on an exercise program is one thing. Staying
on it is the bigger challenge. We have all been there.
New Years Eve comes around and wham! Instant motivation! It
is only a small percentage however that sticks with it. Why?
When you hear the term exercise resistance you of course
think of strength training with weights, don't you? Well,
it can also mean something else.
The phrase, "Exercise Resistance" or ER was coined in the
mid 90's. It means, a conscious or unconscious block against
participating in a regular active program. Studies show that
some people have barriers built up from past experiences
that give them a negative mindset toward exercise and food.
This prevents a person from starting or following through
on a fitness or diet program. This is more of an emotional
feeling that controls a behavior more than anything.
"I thought the golden years were supposed to be filled with
relaxing things to do, not more activities I usually put off
before?" Have you ever just resented having to exercise now
that you are older? "Why should I start exercising? I will
not follow through-never have. It will be just another
failure of mine?" Or how about not starting to exercise
because you have a fear of failure? My favorite; "why does
Jane look like she does and I have to work so hard at it? It
does not seem fair!" Have you ever compare yourself to your
youth or your best friend?
Each one of them; resentment, fear of failure, comparisons
are barriers you build up only to at some point sabotaging
your desire to feel good and get in better shape.
The answer to overcome these barriers is three fold. First,
figure out HOW you are motivated. Second, WHERE your
desires come from. And third, come to an understanding that
these barriers are only illusions you have fabricated in
your mind. THEY ARE NOT REAL! The bottom line is, until you
work on your approach to weight loss and fitness, the
numbers on the charts will not stick.

Throw Out the Scale
Do you know someone that is obsessed with the scale? Someone who hops on the scale morning, noon and night? And stepping off each time with feelings of frustration or disappointment? With obesity on the rise and weight loss a common household topic, its easy to become obsessed with weight, diets and the scale.

The question is, what are the facts about losing weight that marketers are not saying?
Thankfully, winter does not last forever! In the spring there is no more
temptation to dip into the white flour canister and whip up biscuits and
gravy or grandma's banana bread. Ah, as the daylight hours grow
longer, we lose the urge to rummage through the fridge for high carb
"no-no's." With the onset of spring, thick, sweet, hot, heavy, bloating,
high glycemic platters of food suddenly have no appeal!

Weight Loss: Weight Loss is All in Your Mind!
"The kind of thoughts that you plant in your mind, determine what you produce in life." Letting negative thoughts rule your mind can never make you achieve your goal. The magic key is to identify these negative thoughts which are keeping you away from your goal, keep throwing them out of your head as soon as they try to overpower you, brainstorm new positive thoughts (your inspirations and motivations), write them down and keep reading them until they don't become a part of you.

Weight Loss Doesnt Work
Your brain has this really interesting system that is kind of like a search engine on the internet. It is called your RAS for short. A search engine works by typing what you want to find into it and then it goes out on the internet and finds the most relevant web sites for what you want. Your RAS works the same. You put something into your RAS and your brain will literally go out into the world and search for exactly that.
Want Power Before Will Power
The problem isn't that you don't have enough will power to achieve what you want. You have will power, but it's not will power you need, it's want power.
Which is Better? Exercise or Dieting?
If you want to reduce your body fat, focus on increasing the amount of exercise you get rather than decreasing your food intake.

Not surprisingly, the most sedentary men had the most body fat.
