Are You Making These 3 Weight Loss Mistakes
There must be a reason why some struggle to lose weight while for others it seems like the weight just falls right off. It seems like weight loss comes easy for some and harder for others. What is a dieter to do?
Do you ever wonder why weight loss comes easy for some people and others it seems so hard? Why do the pounds just fall off for one person and another keeps getting a harsh reality check on the scale? What in the world are you supposed to do if you are struggling.
For starters avoid these three mistakes.
Mistake 1 – Making weight loss goals that are not realistic. If you have to lose over 100 pounds and want to lose it in 90 days you are shooting yourself in the foot to begin with. You must remember to make realistic goals that can be achieved.
What to do instead: Make achievable realistic goals. Make small goals before you make big ones to help build up your confidence. Try to make a goal to lose a couple pounds a week before making a big goal like losing 100 pounds by (fill in the blank) date.
Mistake 2 – Calling it quits too early. Different results will show up for different people. If you are having a weight loss competition at work and weight in once a week, the scale is not merciful for everyone. You have to remember that weight fluctuates. Don’t be so hard on yourself if you didn’t lose as much weight as your friends at work this week. Keep up the hard work and your time will come.
What to do instead: Do your best and forget the rest. Some days will be harder than others. Just do your best and the weight loss will take care of itself over time. When a day comes that you struggle just remind yourself why you are doing what you are doing. You have a bunch of people love and depend on you. Do it for yourself but do it for them to.
Mistake 3 – Not eating enough calories. Not eating enough is not what you would call healthy way to lose weight. Your body requires a certain amount of nutrients. You are not getting enough of the required nutrients when you don’t eat the correct amount of calories.
What to do instead: The answer should be obvious. Eat the correct amount of calories required for your weight, height, and age. When you don’t take in enough calories you make your metabolism to slow down. A slow metabolism does not help you meet your goals. It will actually cause weight gain.
