11 Solutions for Common Weight Loss Challenges

2. I don’t like to exercise.

I always giggle a little bit when I hear this because there are so many forms of exercise … are you really saying you like NONE of them? Really? The good news is you don’t have to spend your life exercising; you just need to devote about four percent of your 24-hour day to the cause.

Devote a month to trying all forms of exercise as an experiment until you land on one you love. Bonus tip: Sometimes a music playlist you love can be just what you need to love your workout.
