Almost everyone in Totowa, NJ, who is trying to lose weight has had at least one problem on their journey. It isn’t a failure until you give up trying to conquer the problem and deal with weight loss setbacks. There are many reasons for the setbacks and even more solutions. Identifying your problem is the first step to solving it. Use a setback as a learning experience to help you lose weight, stop plateauing, or rededicate yourself to a healthier lifestyle.
It’s easy to fall back into old habits. In most cases, you’ve had them for years. Consider a lapse a temporary issue rather than a sentence for life. Every day is a new day and an opportunity to change your life for the better. Maybe you need help or outside support. Ask a friend for help or get a weight loss buddy. Find out the cause of your lapse. If you have a hectic life and there’s no time to exercise at the end of the day, exercise in the morning before your day begins. Add some fun forms of exercise to your program.
Plateauing can be a problem for anyone. It happens to many people. You’re losing weight every week, then wham! After six months of success, you have several weeks where the scales don’t budget. You might need to change your exercise program. Your body becomes efficient at specific moves and burns fewer calories. Adding new exercises helps. You’ve lost weight, so you aren’t burning as many calories. When you weighed 30 pounds more, it was like carrying a 30-pound weight everywhere. You’d automatically burn more calories. Add a few more minutes to your workout or include more activity in your daily life.
If you’re not watching your calorie intake closely, the problem may start there. Some people consume many extra calories daily with mindless eating. Start a food diary, recording every bite you eat. You may find you’re consuming far more than you thought possible. Evaluate when you eat, why you eat, and what you eat. Make changes to prevent any problems.
