While the reasons people usually fail at weight loss are multifactorial, one reason is the most prominent and impactful of all.
Before we dive in to that #1 reason people fail at weight loss (and what to do about it, of course) let's recap where we've been.
In part one of this three-part series we explored your compelling reason for wanting to lose weight. That is, the reason that is bigger and better than the reasons you want to eat flour and sugar.
Next, in part two, I discussed the importance of deciding on purpose and committing to that decision. No. Matter. What. I also gave you three critical steps to achieve your weight loss goals.

Reason #3: You are not managing your mind. Your mind is managing you.
Learning to manage your mind is the number one most important thing you can do to achieve your weight loss goals. And not just for losing weight, but for achieving anything in your life. But since you are here to learn about losing weight, we'll stick with that topic here.

I wrote a whole post on mind-management that dives deep into the topic and gives instruction on getting started. Check it out to learn more or sign up for a free mini session with me to start learning how to do it.
Let's sum the three articles it up in 5 simple steps.
BOOM! That's it. Weight loss success is yours for the taking.
