Short Term Attitude

Always have a long term approach when you start your weight loss journey. Otherwise you might keep regaining the weight that you lose. You might be successful in putting off a lot of weight but it will not be permanent. Usually, a short term approach leads to quick weight loss for about only two weeks not more.

All Or Nothing

The all or nothing mindset is when a person decides to drastically cut down on calorie and food consumption for a week and then consumes excess calories one day. This is known to have no effect on weight loss. You should keep a balance of the calories that you are consuming. A small amount everyday will not harm you.

Support System

It is important to have a positive environment around you as you go through this journey. Eating healthy also has certain stigmas attached to it and people do not take it seriously sometimes. The negative comments and sarcasm might tempt you you break your routine. Aside from stigmas, the people around you might also tempt you to break your diet. This is very common and becomes difficult of the people around you do not understand your aim. If you feel like your support system is affecting you too much, having an open conversation about why this is important to you is the key.

Stress And Poor Mental Health

Chronic stress and poor mental health makes loosing weight twice as hard. You might have a very active day planned but because of sleep deprivation, stress and exhaustion you probably end up not following your routine. Stress can lead to binge eating or not eating at all and eventually breaking the diet you tried so hard to maintain. Not eating will leave you with no energy to workout. Not too mention, it is neither healthy nor possible to work out when you feel mentally and physically exhausted.

Pills And Supplements

Pills and supplements are probably the worst way to lose weight. They are not healthy and will not work long term. Even if you are taking supplements and they work for you, you too have to work in order for them to work. Only taking supplements and consuming all kinds of food and not working out will have no effect at all. Every weight loss method requires you to stay off certain calories and working out. That is how you can permanently lose weight as well as maintain your body.
