What's keeping you from losing weight? For most people, the answer is lack of motivation.
It comes in many forms, sometimes before starting the diet or during the diet.
Maybe you just can't get started because the whole process is too overwhelming. First you have to choose the diet, gather the recipes, buy the proper food, measure it, and prepare it. Maybe the rest of the family won't eat what's on your diet, so you need to prepare something else in addition to your diet meals.
Perhaps you get off to a good start, but it becomes too much work and you give up.
Eventually the lack of encouragemnet, lack of time, and lack of energy is just too much and you give up.
Some reasons for diet failure include:
1. Family commitments. Children are extremely busy and that means mom and dad are busy. Sports, extracurricular activities, and church keep families on the run, leaving just enough time to drive through a fast food restaurant.
