Do we create barriers to our own success?

As someone who has been battling their weight for nearly 30 years, I have never thought of weight loss as something that was easy. To me, it always seemed like a personal war. I know that is a familiar feeling for lots people and many of my clients have confirmed these types of thoughts and emotions when discussing weight challenges.

In thinking about this question over the last few months now, I think I have come to a few conclusions… Not only is weight NOT a mathematical equation (Biggest Loser has proved that to us on national television again and again), but there are many other non-food and non-exercise components that factor into our weight, one huge component being our minds. Yes, sleep, stress and a lot of other aspects are important, but in my opinion, our minds can determine our success or our failure.

Our brain is more powerful than we sometimes give it credit for.
