Having Zero Motivation to Lose Weight

Ask a Question

Does anybody else feel like they have 0% motivation when it comes to losing weight? I am so fed up but just find it so difficult to keep it up.

ZahraBux i lost just over 3 stone last year as i had motivation to go on holiday in September. After holiday when it was colder, dark early and i had nothing to motivate me it went a bit wrong. Also foodhub where giving big discounts all the time so ive pretty much lived off takeaway πŸ™ŠπŸ™ˆ We have started getting back onto plan sort of at home and will be going back to class in feb when it gets a bit quieter first few weeks of jan are mayhem and i hate a crowd 🀣

ZahraBux honestly its really easy to follow and you can eat almost anything its just the way you cook things or getting certain versions. It involves a lot of prep and cooking from fresh rather than easy options but it really does work.

If I start to lose weight I have motivation, but never actively try to lose weight in the first place, despite probably needing to. I think the word diet should be banned in any vocabulary as straight away that puts a different mind-set on anything, whereas if you say a lifestyle regime change it puts a more positive spin on it and therefore you are more likely to continue with it. Good luck

I have very little motivation to lose weight, even though I still gave baby weight to lose. Luckily I'm constantly running around after my son so it helps me lose weight.

ZahraBux I've lost most of the baby weight, it is just the last little bit and tbh if I don't lose it then I'm alright with that. My sons weight is more important than mine!

I joined slimming world years ago when I was unhappy with the weight I had put on and I lost roughly 1.5 stone. I would definitely recommend them if you have the patience to stick with it lol! It’s maintaining your weight once your happy with it thats the trouble!

I know exactly how to successfully lose weight but sadly don't often have the will power to achieve it. Looking at a graph of my weight readings over many months is like looking at the outline of the Himalayan mountains.

Bad health due to bad diet is a wonderful motivation. Unfortunately most people wait until they succumb to bad health before improving their diet.

Like most people I have to get back into the swing of healthy eating again but won't be tackling it until the end of the month when all the temptations are eaten or given away. I honestly believe that starting too soon after the hols puts extra pressure and a feeling of missing out on things, making a diet doubly hard.

We are all different.

The biggest mistake is to believe that one diet plan can help us all...It is more complicated.

I heard it is in genetic....some DNA is responsible for the fat which can be treated...the medicine is also exist..

There is a healthy diet and that means u eat lots of carbs....and less everything else...u can check in Nutritionist books.

For me it is extremely hard to lose weight. Also know if I want to look perfect. I have to exercise 4 hours a day, which I do not have...sometimes I can not even get out of the flat...

I also join the zero motivation group, because I believe to do well on diets and exercise I need more money and time....

AgnesFaludi the diet industry makes millions because everyone wants to lose weight. But i feel like we make it harder on ourselves, as you said everyone is different and what might work for me, wont work for you.

I need exercise first and foremost, i think once you see that change it gives you that boost and food and healthy eating will follow. I dont think diets are a long term solution. I think its ok to eat most things but as a treat or in moderation.

I’m currently struggling with this too! And have a holiday in 9 weeks so obviously would like to look my best for that. I’ve made a simple change which will help which is more home cooking and less takeaways - seems so simple but I work so much sometimes it’s just convenient to pick something up. I have only done it since last Sunday so one whole week but I’ve managed to cook every day so far 😊

ZahraBux definitely something to consider, it really is just finding the time for me! We have a whiteboard in the kitchen so we planned out our meals on Sunday for the week so fingers crossed we can keep the momentum going for another week! It’s saving us money as well not just grabbing convenience food. Good luck with your weight loss :-) x
