What’s holding you back? Part 2

stop holding yourself backHey,I wanted to follow up from our previous blog post about “what’s holding you back?” with part 2. 

In our last post, we explored three reasons that can hold us back from achieving what we want and need with regards to our health.

Here are another two obstacles that can get in the way of us achieving the best version of ourselves:

4. You don’t deserve it.

I don’t agree with it, but you sure act like you don’t deserve to live the good life in the body of your dreams. Take a moment to think back on all the times you have self-sabotaged your health & weight loss efforts. If you don’t believe deep down that you are worthy then you’ll never give yourself a chance at a fit body. 

I believe that you deserve to have a healthy body—and I urge you to dig deep down to uncover why you don’t. Once you conquer your feelings of unworthiness, getting on an exercise and healthy eating plan will be easy. 

Take the time to take care of yourself. You DO deserve it. 

5. You are afraid. 

You’re afraid to start because you just might fail, and wouldn’t that be embarrassing? You’re also afraid to start because you just might succeed, and change makes you uncomfortable – even if it’s change in the right direction. 

When you decide to get fit you will need to go through a bushel of changes:

  • New nutritional habits
  • New exercise routine
  • New friends & vibrant community
  • New clothes
  • New self-image

Focus on all of the ways that becoming healthy & losing weight will make your life better. 

Envision that better life everyday so that it goes from being new and scary to familiar and comfortable. 

I want to personally help overcome every obstacle standing between you and your ideal body.

Coach James,


Are you a chronic procrastinator? Do you put off going to the gym? Research shows that by spending ‘just a few minutes’ doing the dreaded task you’ll feel an urge to see it through completion. These initial few minutes of activity create an open loop that refuses to close until the job is done.
