Fear of Loss is best motivator - Why isn't it working as millions lose their life to obesity

Psychologically, we fear losing something we have much more than we enjoy possible gains.  Psychologists claim this bias is proven across all ages, gender and ethnicity.  We value the loss more than the gain, by 2-3 times.  This law of motivation got me thinking about why isn't it working when we look at the quality and potential of our lives.  Look around at the obesity increases among our community, they are losing their lives.  They had a life, sex, movement without pain, no medication, no sleep apnea, and they have traded all of this for poor eating and lifestyle habits.  I am confused by how the Fear of Loss is not making a stronger impact on the choices we are making since psychology says it should.

Life keeps getting better when you're fit.

A lot of the problems we used to think of as being related to aging, we now know aren't related to aging at all. They are related to disuse of the body, and generations have finally begun to realize 'Hey, we can do something about that.'

DIY FITNESS PROGRAMS

GUIDANCE FOR THE MOTIVATED

We've all experienced times in our fitness journeys where results start to stagnate, inspiration slacks off or a desire to learn new methods occur. When that happens we can wait for the tide to turn, get back to the drawing board OR hire a professional to re-work the fitness game for us. If one on one training or small group training isn't your cup of tea, or if it doesn't fit your pocketbook, then a written program is the ideal choice to get the results you're after.

Coach Henry offers a 6 week program focused on foundational movements and progressive lifts geared to get you stronger. This program can be implemented in any space that provides a bench and weights. No membership is required and results are guaranteed.

Coach Becky offers a 6 week program formatted with intervals that provide mobility, conditioning and strength-training blocks to provide a well-rounded workout. The workouts are designed to be time-efficient because, as a working Mama, Becky knows how valuable it is to feel like you got it all done and can get on with the rest of the many tasks life throws at you.
