Reasons of Not Losing Weight or Fat


My coach posted the following a while ago that I thought was pretty interesting and wanted to share with you all =

Are you getting the results you want?  If you are, way to go!  You have put in the effort to lock down your workouts, your supplements, your nutrition, and your mindset for success. You can stop reading now 🙂

If you are not getting your results, then why is that?  Are you so good at making excuses that you really believe what you are saying?  Have you fooled yourself into believing you are giving it your all but that results are just magically eluding you?  Come on!!!

Who are you trying to fool? You’re not fooling me!!!  Stop lying to yourself! Yes, you heard me! Stop lying to yourself! You may be thinking, “How am I fooling myself?” Well, if you are someone who keeps saying the following things, you are fooling yourself:

“I am eating healthy but I’m not losing any weight.”

“I am following the calorie guidelines and coach’s advice but I’m not seeing any changes.”

“No matter what I do, I can’t lose the stubborn fat.”

“I’m doing the workouts but I’m not getting any stronger.”

“My metabolism must have just slowed down at my age and I can’t lose the weight.”

I see the above comments on P90X discussion boards all the time, and I get those emails all the time. At first, I used to think to myself, “That’s got to be frustrating.” I can’t imagine putting in all the effort into the workouts and nutrition and not seeing any changes in my body. What a bummer that would be! It would make me want to give up. And often, these people who are saying the above quotes are the ones who DO give up and stop before reaching their goals. This is tragic.

But do you know what? I’ve been having these types of discussions for a LONG while now, and almost EVERY time, as the specifics are spelled out about the person making the claim, the TRUTH comes out after a little probing. What’s the TRUTH? They ARE NOT eating right. They are NOT eating healthy, even though they’ve tricked themselves into thinking they are. They are not pushing themselves on the workouts, even if they are pushing play most of the time.  They are lying to themselves!! Let me explain:

In my opinion, ANYONE (yes ANYONE) who has extra body fat to lose WILL see that body fat start to go away if they follow the P90X nutrition guidelines. It doesn’t matter if they are young or old, male or female. If they actually do what the guide says, it WILL work. They may need to tweak the total calories down like I did, and they may need to use some of my techniques to break out of a plateau, but it WILL work … EVERY TIME! The only exception that I can see is a medical condition like hypothyroidism or other illness.

I’m one who can say that this system works. I was once FAT like just a few months ago but see where I am at now? Isn’t that amazing? If I can do it, why can’t you. All you got to do is to follow the plan that’s outlined for you and stay the course! Layoff the excuses, suck it up and push play!
