Trying to rush results
Thinking of weight loss as a marathon and not a sprint may sound cliche, but it could be the key to your success.
Weight loss is not a linear journey, so it is absolutely normal to encounter obstacles or setbacks along the way.
Trying to speed up the process by drastically cutting calories, or your favourite foods can quickly lead to burnout and a complete loss of motivation.
Bonnie Taub-Dix, author of ‘Read It Before You Eat It’ told Insider: “You don’t have to be more strict, you have to be more patient.”
Don’t base your progress on visible results, look for signs beyond the scale such as:
- Increased energy
- Improved mood
- Consistency with healthy habits
- More enjoyment and less dread of healthy habits
- Exercise becomes easier
- Positive self-image
