Weight Loss Mistakes

Weight Loss Mistakes

People in their desperation to lose weight often make mistakes. These mistakes may seem minor but they may be harmful in the long run. Mistakes in diet plan and exercise regimen are commonly made. A well studied approach towards weight loss will give you the desired results along with a healthy and fit body.

When you are in a hurry to lose weight, you get easily frustrated and anxious on what should be your ideal diet plan, your perfect exercise regimen and the overall lifestyle. If you fail to have the right attitude, it is well possible that you end up making mistakes. Given below are some common and oft-repeated mistakes that people make when they embark on a weight loss plan:

Giving Up Easily–

First of all, one needs to realise that anyone can fall off the diet and exercise routine once a while. There are temptations, when you feel that it is not a big deal to give up the exercise routine after carrying it on for several weeks and months. Sticking to a certain program or workout can also appear to be difficult at some stages. It is also easy to feel that it does not matter to deviate from a healthy eating habit after binging on a massive feast. Renewal of the commitment seems to be the most neglected and difficult task.

Solution - What should be your solution? Regardless since the last time you have exercised, you can always take control right away be getting active, taking a quick walk to start off. If you lack time, make the most of the time that you are awake, be active. If you’ve binged on your favorite snack, no use sitting with a guilty mind. Accept it and move on.

Anticipating Dramatic Weight Loss Results–

It is often found that after a few weeks of dietary control and exercise, there is a frustration that the results are not immediate. There is an impractical and constant expectation that the scale would keep moving. You need to realise that you did not gain those extra kilos overnight and neither would you lose it with a blink of an eye.

Solution – If the focus lies on the immediate benefits of exercise, the process becomes a lot easier. Stop that constant scale-watching. As you workout feel the energy boost, the alertness and how it makes you feel good. You will discover that the stress levels are low and you are getting better sleep and feel stronger too.

You Do the Same Thing and Expect Different Results –

Exercises ought to be enjoyed. If you are repeating the same sets over a period of few months, your body might reach a weight loss plateau. Then the boredom adds to the frustration.

Solution – Check on the purpose on what you are performing and keep changing the patterns. Expose your body to regular challenges and you will find the workout showing results.

Wrong Attitude and Unrealistic Expectations –

Many find exercising as a punishment. If you don’t like what you are doing, there will be no enjoyment and you would lack motivation. Remember, even if your mind hates it, your body loves activity. Then expectations must be real and attainable. A sculpted body or a six-pack is never achieved by an overnight turn and bodies have their natural structure.

Solution – Change your attitude. Try to motivate yourself by gifting something after a hard workout. It should be something that will benefit your body in the long run. Focus on the benefit that you’d be deriving from a workout and something that will make feel good, stronger and fitter.

If you want to lose weight, you should follow your weight loss regimen with discipline. Though weight loss regimen is difficult it is not difficult if you stick to it religiously. When you follow any weight loss regimen make sure that it is suitable for your health by consulting your doctor.

Taking a quick walk in the morning really helps. Actually I have started walking everyday as I need to drop my kid to the school. This Orchids International School is just 15 to 20 minutes away from our home. Valuable post!
