It is pretty easy to lose the motivation to lose weight. I know one of the things that have stopped me in the past are setbacks to my training.
Playing sports for so many years have led me to suffer with many injuries and very tight muscles. As a result, I have found that I have picked up many injuries and they have stopped me dead in my track.
When I think back to a few years ago in 2017 I lost a lot of weight and was in good shape, and then a shoulder injury to throw my training out and I lost motivation.
However, I have learned from this, and it has made my weight loss efforts better and has allowed me to give better advice to the clients I train.
I now realised that as my part of my motivation to lose weight I have to plan for the worst and mentally prepare myself to expect a setback.
The logic behind this is that if I expect it, it wont surprise me and lead me to feel demotivated.
When my expectation was that month by month I would keep progressing without setbacks, I felt so deflated as soon as I came across a big hurdle.
Looking back this has now made me realise how important mental preparation, planning and mental toughness is when it comes to weight loss.
Something I probably underestimated.
That is one of the reasons why I have failed to lose weight in the past and had to start again. However, the reason you may lose motivation is probably different to mine.
The reason I am writing this article is to help you learn what it maybe that is holding you back from fulfilling your true potential.
I want this article to loosen the mental shackles that could be holding you back, and to give you the tools you need to finally lose weight once and for all.
I am going to share with you the 13 reasons you have no motivation to lose weight.
The experiences I am going to share are based on things that I have discovered through personal experience, as well as tried and tested methods that have been researched.



As a personal trainer I believe that with the right motivation, and a concrete plan you can transform your body and health.
John is a shining beacon of this fact, and I want to share his story with you.
I have been training John for many years. He was first referred to me by a friend of mine who is a personal trainer.
John has a stressful job as a banker. Like most people he has to commute in to work each day, and then work long hours.
John would often eat late, drink a bit too much wine and then go to bed late and get up early. As the years went by, this lifestyle led to John gaining 10 kilos over a few years.
When I finally met John, he wasn’t someone I would have described as being badly overweight. However, sometimes it’s about what you are used to.
He always felt he could do better with his fitness and health and searched for a personal trainer.
His first trainer Kim had done a great job of building John’s fitness levels. John was very fit and fully committed to our workouts when we first began training together.
The only problem was that during his time training with his former trainer he didn’t see any changes in his weight.


Losing weight is extremely important. There are many health related diseases linked to excessive weight that you may be worried about or suffering with such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes and even smaller problems like snoring.
Also, purely from an aesthetic point of view you may not like the reflection that looks back at you in the mirror.

You may feel weaker and may not have the same energy you once did.

I will cover 8 reasons why you are failing at losing weight fast, give you easy to follow steps of how to achieve each hack. 

Also I will define how fast, should fast be, when you are looking to lose weight fast.


Have you ever had to change a top that you’ve just put on, because it makes your belly look to fat?  If you’ve answered yes then you’re not alone.
I know this feeling too, and it takes a lot of work to change your physique to something you can be proud of.
It’s a shameful feeling, and one that probably makes you feel like you’re older than you are. In fact, it probably makes you feel like crap. At least that’s how I felt.
Do you want to change that feeling? Do you want to look and feel better?
Well, I am here to help. At various points in my life, I have needed to lose weight and have found several different things that work. I am going to share the things that I have done that have worked for me, as well as include things that are backed by science.
Let’s jump straight in and answer the question that you’re interested in.



Do you want to lose weight, but don’t know how to begin with exercise? You’re not alone, everyone was a beginner at some point in their life, including me. I can still remember the first day I walked into a gym as a sixteen-year-old.

There was so much fitness equipment, and I didn’t know where to start, so I did what most rookies do, and just tried everything.

Not a bad idea in theory, but man did I hurt the next day. In fact, I was sore for four days.
It’s fair to say I overcooked it, but at the time I didn’t have access to a professional to take advice from.

So, with that in mind I have written this article for you, to help you avoid some of the mistakes that I made as a beginner. With the right guidance and tools, there is no reason to fear injuring yourself or being overly sore.

All you need to do is follow the free weekly program that I have included in this article and use the five steps to help you with your exercise program and progress.
