These are some of the most common questions I get asked about weight loss. (I’m not so to the point / blunt when I answer them in person!)
I’m 55. As I’ve gotten older, it’s been getting harder and harder to lose weight. Why should I feel hopeful?
It might be harder to lose weight QUICKLY as you get older but I think you’re the perfect age to lose weight for GOOD.
Why is it the perfect age?
Because you’re mentally ready to lose weight for the long-term, not like twenty-somethings who want to lose weight for the next event/ wedding / holiday.
But how can I be confident? I’ve failed many times before.
90% of people who succeed at losing weight have failed before.
Can you help me lose weight quickly?
So do I have to take it slowly?
It’s not about slowness but about making sure that when you lose weight you lose it once and for all.
Will I have to starve myself?
How can I lose weight without starving myself?
Because if you make small changes each week, and slowly build it up, you will develop new habits and the weight loss will not be depriving at all.
The last time I tried to lose weight, I couldn’t stick to it, so I failed. What can I do differently.
Only do things you will stick to.
But what if I can’t stick to it?
You keep trying different things until you find things you can stick to.
Is there any way that this can’t work?
The only way to fail at losing weight this way is to give up.
