There are a million and one reasons women give for not losing weight. “I don’t have the time.” “I can’t stay motivated.” “I just have to have my comfort food.” “I’ve tried before and I don’t want to go through that again.” These reasons may or may not be accurate, but whether they are accurate or not, they don’t tell the whole story.
For every woman who says she can’t lose weight there is a backstory. The backstory is a set of events that precede and lead up to the current main plot where weight isn’t getting lost. This historical backstory gives a more accurate reason for not being able to lose weight?
Do you know what your backstory is? What were the past events in your life that made you gain the weight you are now maintaining? See if your backstory is still very much a part of you, and this is why you can’t lose weight. If so, you will have to do more than diet and exercise. You’ll definitely have to do something about your backstory.
