Aside from overeating, a contributor to weight gain may be your mindset.
If life is throwing you constant challenges, it may make it difficult to achieve your health and fitness goals.
If you get your mindset right you will be in a much better place to commit to working on your health so it’s important to focus on that first.
Seeking professional assistance from a counsellor or therapist, or even a great life coach may help you stick to your goals and minimise the chances of emotional eating or losing motivation.
It is ok to not be ok, I know as I have been there. The day you acknowledge that you need some help with your mindset, will be the day you start to move in a more in a positive direction.
However, you need to take that first step which is often not as easy as it sounds, but is essential if you are to be successful with your long term health goals.
Allocate some time to looking after your mindset and fitness goals and work them into your schedule and be selfish with this time – it is an investment in yourself that will pay dividends in the long run.
