Why you know what to do to lose weight but just don’t do it

I know what to do, I just don’t do it. A saying that is always said when it comes to weight loss. Feeling just desperation that you just cannot seem to get the umpfh to get going. In this blog, I am going to help you get going and get doing the do! so let’s crack on

A common phrase I am sure and one that you may have said yourself if you are into losing weight

I know what to do, I just don’t do it

I get it, we have been there. We may not have been anything more than about 2 stone “overweight” but we get it

The feeling that there is a massive barrier or block as to why you cannot just do the do

It’s like some invisible force you are looking through the paper bag which has turned transparent with the doughnut fat

You know what you want, but you just cannot get to it


Why does this happen?

There are lots of reasons

(Let’s just be honest here and lay it on the table, if you are easily offended don’t read on)

It could be confusion
It could be the fact you have not got your priorities in check
It could be you don’t have any support
It could be some excuse like time or money
It could be your just lazy and cannot be bothered

Usually, it is about some BS as to WHY you cannot do something

I’m too old
I don’t have the time
I don’t have the money
I don’t think I’m worth the effort
I don’t want to change in case anyone notices me

How do we know this to be TRUTH?

Because we have coached 1000’s of people all who want to lose weight all with the same phrases and reasons

PLUS we have been there as we said

We get it, and to be honest, in our situation, it is usually 9 times out of 10

Time, we don’t have time, we don’t put these things above our priority of the business

It goes to the bottom of the pile and answering emails, and building a business comes first

Plus sometimes, hand on heart I know from my perspective (Loz) I simply just cannot be arsed

It’s too much like hard work getting all sweaty

One way out of this is to change your question

I said to one of our Rock Solid FreedomFighters on F90 the other day

(F90 is our signature mentoring program for people who want to change their lifelong habits which stop them from losing weight and being happy in life)

‘You know what to do your just not doing it right?”


“Ok so let me ask you this, what WILL you do? What are you prepared to do?”

Changes the game, asking a different question

Instead of having that cycle of I don’t know what to do, why is this so frustrating

Change your focus, change the question

It almost get you thinking in a different manner, it changes the whole game

I know that is what we do all the time

What WILL you do today? What are you prepared to do?

Something small, what will you try? what will you implement? what small win can you get today to give you a little fist pump moment
Use this question and you will soon find you are doing the do time and time again
