What is the reason Exercising is Easy and Losing Weight is hard?

It's quite Simple (and obvious).

In order to start - and continue - exercising, you "only" need to "be strong" once a day, possibly a couple of times a week - and for a short period. Maybe 30 minutes, maybe an hour. But that's it.

On the other hand...

In order to start - and continue - losing weight (or eating healthier, or spending less money), you need to "be strong" 24/7/365 - because the temptation of food (and calories, or junk food) is always around you.

Obvious, no?

A a life-changing commitment is super-hard. An on-going commitment is much easier.

(It almost sounds like a mistake - but I just re-read it. It's not.)


Just set your expectations accordingly, and you won't be surprised.
