Help Lose Weight Scale Why Is Losing Weight That Difficult If you have ever tried to lose weight or succeeded losing it only to gain it back time and again you know all too well why losing weight is labeled as ‘difficult’ some may even say impossible.  After all, you certainly want to lose the weight and have the motivation you need to do so.

You probably know everything you need to do to in order to drop the pounds.  What’s holding you back may be the last few reasons you need to understand to answer the mystery of why it’s been so difficult.

Is it your attitude?   A bad or wrong attitude toward yourself or food could very well be holding you back.

Many turn to food for comfort for every one of the wrong reasons which in turn can become the enemy for some of the overweight individuals.

Sometimes food can be seen as something to fight against instead of seeing it as something that is delicious and nourishing.

Did you know that food is comforting for some and the enemy of others (though they both result in weight gain) might sound counter intuitive.

Are you part of group who love and practically worship food OR from the group that are fearful of it and hate it because of what it does to them?  Either way these are both very unhealthy attitudes towards food and both will lead to weight gain.
