How can you adhere when things interfere? Isn’t this the hallmark of the weight loss process as you know it? You try and try to stick to it—the weight loss regimen, the exercise routine, the best diet for you. Try as you may, try as you might, you simply get to a point where you can’t do what’s right.
It is these interfering “things” that you need to tend to if you want to stay on your weight loss routine to the very end. Some women identify their “things” as obstacles outside of their control. “Life is just too busy.” “I can’t get family support.” “It’s too much to care for the kids and myself too.” Do you do this? Or do you, like many women, attribute your not sticking to a diet to more personal characteristics, such as frustrates easily, am not committed, have poor willpower, or don’t want to feel deprived?
A lot of the time taking a deeper look at the “things” interfering with you losing unwanted weight can bring to mind many different avenues of exploration that give you a broader focus on your weight loss problem. This broader focus is more psychological and it explains why you keep getting too busy and what is making the family support issues so upsetting and why you can’t care for yourself when you are caring for your kids.
Consequently, if you want to adhere you have to understand, really understand, things that interfere.
