Ep 120: The Biggest Barriers To Weight Loss

Jan 4, 2016

I decided to take a fun, new approach to an upcoming webinar to ensure that I could give you guys EXACTLY what you need, not just what I think you might need. Everyone who registered for the webinar was given a survey to establish what they feel are their biggest barriers to weight loss. In today’s episode I share the most common answers I’ve received and weigh in on these challenges.

I will absolutely tackle these issues & challenges on the webinar as well as in upcoming podcasts, emails, blogs & courses.

I’m so thankful to those of you who took the time to take the survey and share your challenges with me!

The Biggest Barriers To Weight Loss

biggest barriers to weight loss

In the survey, I ask 3 questions:

  1. What is the primary reason you give up or give in when attempting to lose weight?
  2. What is your most significant barrier to changing your eating habits?
  3. What is the one thing you’d most like to learn on the webinar?

Nearly 60% of people said that they primary reason they give up on their weight loss attempts is TEMPTATION. In moments of temptation, they surrender.

This is what I call “The Gap” & I’ll be spending a lot of time on the webinar talking about the gap & how to avoid it. “The Gap” is the space between our intentions & our actions. We fall in the gap when we give in to temptation. But how do we stop? How do we stay strong and true to our goals in those moments? I’ll show you.

Almost 70% of people answered that their most significant barrier to changing their eating habits is emotional eating. Boom. Yes. I so get that. That is EXACTLY WHY I am hosting this webinar on New Year, New Approach. We can have all the meal plans & food lists in the world, but that’s not the issue. The issue is not WHAT to eat but rather WHY we eat. This will be tackled on the webinar & of course in the return of the Breaking Barriers course.

Lastly, the two most common things people said they wanted to learn on the webinar were how to stop emotional eating & self sabotage. Well, my friends, you’ve come to the right place. I’ve got you. That is exactly what Breaking Barriers is going to help you with. Starting now.

Now, about 20% of people want nuts & bolts about what to eat, when, how much, etc. I’ve got you, too! Next week I’ll have a detailed episode on the nuts & bolts of fat loss for nutrition as well as the nuts & bolts of hormones, mindset & fitness. Do not miss that. In the meantime, check out the resources section right below for a handful of previous episodes & other tools on those topics.
