You are letting society define your transformation. Don't compare yourself to the cover of a magazine or the "fitspiration" you see on social media. Consider your transformation in terms of how you're feeling physically and emotionally. Your transformation should be in your confidence, in your self worth, in your energy levels and abilities.
You depend on someone else to get to the gym. Ride solo dude! It's not convenient to work around someone else’s schedule. Especially when you probably already have a family of 5 whose schedules you have to accommodate to.
You put it off until the end of your days to do list. It's one of the most important things you will do today. Do you start at the bottom of the priority list or the top? Get it done and out of the way so you can enjoy the rest of your day and not have to worry about finding time.
You don’t have a workout schedule. It's all about routine. Pencil it in at the same time every single day and know what exercise you're doing every day of the week. This will a) provide the most progress long term, and b) ensure that you don't miss out on a day because "you just didn't have time."
You use the same machines or do the same workout every day. You need to have a basic understanding on which muscle groups to work together each day and which machines provide for those muscles. Additionally, you don't want to work the same muscle groups each day or do a full week of resistance training. Make sure you have a program that you're following.
You work hard in the gym and don’t succeed in the kitchen. Nutrition, as we all know, is a HUGE component of our success in fat loss and muscle growth. Make sure you're following a clean eating plan.
You haven’t set any goals and don’t have record of your starting point. Sit down and set goals for your emotional wellbeing, physical strength and energy levels, as well as abilities (i.e 10 pushups). Record your starting point. I like to do this with a before picture, so I can compare later on. An alternative can be a journal entry where you talk about how you're feeling about your body and life overall.
You have a negative mindset and don’t look for motivation or positivity. Beginning a new lifestyle you have to be ready, willing, and positive. You're more likely to give up or not succeed if you have negative energy.
You use all your excuses. It's really easy to say "I don't have time today" or "I'm not feeling 100%." Yeah, excuses are easy, that's why most people don't succeed. Because it's easier to make up excuses than it is to follow through and work your ass off for the transformation you want.
You’re doing it alone and haven’t found an accountability partner. This doesn't have to be someone you go to the gym with each day. Just someone that you can talk health and fitness with and find daily motivation in.
You buy unhealthy snacks for the family/kids. If you're committing to a healthy lifestyle, you understand the benefits of it and what your previously unhealthy lifestyle has been doing for you. So my question is, why would you continue to provide your family with those unhealthy options? It not only is bad for their health, but it makes it harder for you to follow your own clean plan.
