Understanding Weight Loss Failure

Sad-Faced Postem's with One Happy Face

There are hundreds of diets for people to try and even more meal plans that can help them improve their diet. So, why do so many people fail at losing weight, even when they so desperately want? It isn't so much the diet or the meals; it's their commitment to doing what needs to be done and doing it the right way that often sabotages their effort.

Don't Expect Immediate Results

Many people, women especially, will begin to get discouraged if they don't see some form of immediate results. They feel that because they are putting in so much effort, they should be rewarded with some type of immediate result. That isn't always true and it is the main reason that many end up losing their motivation. Instead of seeking immediate gratification, look at the big picture and focus on what you are doing, not what you are seeing.

Avoid Constant Monitoring

One of the worst things a person can do when they are trying to lose weight is to constantly hop on the scale or monitor their calories. A person's weight will fluctuate as more muscle is created and more fat is lost. Muscle weighs more than fat and your numbers will not be pleasing in the beginning. Relax. Weigh yourself once a week or every two weeks. The constant fluctuations won't drive you nuts and you will start to feel better about your results.

Unreasonable Weight Loss Expectations

Don't go into a weight loss program and think it's going to happen overnight. If you want to lose weight and keep it off for the long term, you need to build healthy habits. That will take a few months, so don't depend on the quick fix. If you do, you will be disappointed.

MRC of Vancouver started me going in my attempt to loose 30 years of weight gain!! I have been using their program for about 18 months and have actually lost 30 pounds. I have changed the way I eat. I've learned what foods are best for ME. By analyzing my DNA and hormones, they helped me learn to eat what was right for me. I have "tweeked" my purchases and preparation of food to make eating healthy and still fun for me. I eat lots of veggies and salads and include a healthy diet of protein. These are very satisfying. Do I "cheat" now and then? Yes, but I don't like how I feel after eating sugar and lots of carbs so I return to my good foods quickly and continue to see my weight drop. I walk my little dog four times a day and have a part-time job that allows me a lot of movement. I feel so healthy and wonderful. It's easy to continue to eat and live a more healthy lifestyle! When I confessed about eating the wrong "foods", the gals simply encouraged me and gave me fresh ideas to satisfy my taste buds. I always felt I could be honest during my consultations with no fear of being lectured! I plan to continue until I reach my desired weight. I expect to reach my goal by 2017. After I reach my weight goal, I plan to remain in good health with my new found healthy way of eating the calories I need to maintain my proper weight. My Dr. is very pleased at my progress. She wondered how I have lost 30 pounds.
