These days, more and more people who have struggled with weight loss are turning their lives around and becoming healthier and and more physically fit. There are also a lot more people wanting to start fitness in some way but do not know how.
There are many people that will feel that they are too old to start looking into fitness and health or going to the gym and lifting weights or simply feel that there is no hope for them as they have had a weight problem for their whole life.
This is a mental barrier. In past articles I have mentioned the importance of routine and the effect of a routine or habit becoming more solid and embedded the longer that it is followed or allowed to continue. These habits or routines can be good or bad.

This leads to little or no results and further backs up your belief that it is too late for you.
The best thing that you can do here is to stick with one theory. If you know someone personally that has had great results, the kind of results that you want, you should educate yourself to this theory and follow it until you get your results. For example:
