Losing weight is perhaps as much psychological as it is physical. In general, it takes six weeks to form a good or bad habit. So wake up, exercise, eat healthy and after a month and a half, you’re set for life—in theory.

There are plenty of antagonists to your personal resolve. Poor nutrition is one. A depletion of essential vitamins or minerals can disrupt your metabolism. Conversely, a regular intake can augment your fitness routine. Other factors that may derail best intentions are fear, pain, or lack of visible results.

We thrive on rewards to continue exercising. This comes in the form of compliments from friends, a reduction in weight on the scale, the ability to fit into smaller clothing, or an overall energy increase. A motivat­ing partner may provide inspiration. This can be either a friend or paid fitness instructor.

To minimize pain, stretch prior to extensive workouts. As you exert muscles, they tighten. So when you begin tight, you may cramp up or become less mobile during your exercise.

If you are a chronic pain sufferer, minimal resistance to muscles and joints can feel more comfortable. Doctors may recommend warming muscles with a hot water bottle and perhaps ingesting an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory drug prior to your workout.

The point is that mental resolve, nutrition, and regular exercise work together. Focus on how good you will look and feel when your body mass index is normal. Appreciate how much more you can do when you have the energy to accom­plish tasks. Understand that with proper nutrition, you diminish the effort required to keep weight off.
