Because you have not committed yourself to weight loss as serious as you should.
You must commit yourself to weight loss, or you risk staying the way you are … forever.
I know it sounds way too scary, but unfortunately it’s so much true that it even hurts me to think about it.
I have way too many bad examples of close friends and relatives who never ever managed to lose even one pound permanently, because they never got really serious about loosing those excess pounds.
Perhaps you should buy a weight loss product to remind you everyday, while taking it, that you’ve paid money on a diet product that is supposed to help you lose weight. Should this be enough? Hardly, but it’s a start – one small step in the direction of your successful weight loss journey.
No matter if it comes from a relative or friend, husband or mother, sister or neighbor, you need emotional support – a key factor in your weight loss battle. If you don’t have it, no matter how many raw carrots or plain boiled potatoes you eat – you won’t lose any pounds while you watch your family eating delicious chicken breasts and beans dinner…
I am not saying that you should put all your family and relatives on your diet, but there are ways to make it easier for you to lose weight while none of your family members are following any strict weight loss diet plan:
What I mean is the following:
Let your husband or wife eat whatever they like at lunch while both of you are at work, and in the evening when you are at home eating your dinner together, make sure you both eat the same – a low calorie diet meal that most weight loss diet plans recommend:
Do not overeat at dinner – that’s one of the best ways to keep one from gaining weight!!!
The same eating habit works with a friend, whom you’ve decided to dine with – he’she ate whatever they like during the day, but when they join you for a dinner – they eat what’s on your diet plan’s menu. Of course that means he/she should join you for dinner at your home, cause while you are on a diet plan you can’t eat out, unless you carry your meals in a box.
I feel so bad and discouraged when I am on a diet that forbids almost every delicious meal I love and every snack I like, because even a simple walk with my kids puts my will to lose weight on a test, when they ask for a snack – whether it would be an ice-cream or a chocolate candy, it does not matter…
What matters is my strong desire to lose weight by resisting all sweet temptations and finish what I’ve started. It all comes to my commitment to weight loss. That means find your weight loss goal even and do not ever stop chasing the results your desire. I think many people do it that way, it’s not the best solution, but it usually works best…
What I mean is the following:
Put only realistic goals on your To Do List! Any unrealistic expectations (like losing 20 pounds in a month) will inevitably lead to big disappointments.
