I saw a heartbreaking video yesterday.

Has trying to lose weight got you losing your mind? Does it seem like no matter what you try, you can’t lose weight? In this post, I identify some little-discussed barriers that block you from losing weight.

I remember a few years back when I thought I was trying everything possible to lose weight.

And I come to the conclusion that it wasn’t me.

I must have some underlying condition that’s preventing me from losing weight.

Or so I thought.

So I went to a doctor with a list of symptoms to prove to her that something was wrong with me. I was convinced that I had hypothyroidism and I had all the signs to prove it.

Or so I thought.

And this was why I could not lose weight.

But if you don’t, these three reasons that I’m going to share with you just might be the culprit.

So let’s dive in and explore these reasons.Continue reading
