New Year Resolution: Know The 10 Reasons Why It’s Hard For You to Lose Weight

If you’ve ever seen a weight-loss commercial, you’ve heard over and over how simple it is to lose weight: just take this supplement, eat this diet, or use this piece of equipment, and the pounds will magically disappear. Despite the fact that billions of dollars are spent on weight-loss products and services each year, millions of people stay overweight.

Losing weight is difficult in reality, and it isn’t because you or anyone else is lazy or isn’t working hard enough. Because everything from our biology to our surroundings and emotions, makes weight reduction an uphill battle against both nature and nurture for so many of us.

There are legitimate reasons why you’re having trouble losing weight, but if you know the realities about weight loss, you can overcome these hurdles and achieve your goals.

Your Mindset & Attitude

It will be difficult to reduce weight permanently if you are merely on a health kick to drop weight or appear a particular way. Weight loss is a good goal, but finding something else to keep you motivated can be beneficial. Remind yourself of the numerous advantages of exercising, such as increased energy, improved emotions, and a better night’s sleep.

Whether you’re losing weight or not, keep an activity journal and write down every single accomplishment. The secret to staying committed is to change the way you think about yourself and exercise. No one likes to do something that makes them unhappy, so consider how you may change your perspective on fitness.

Your Workouts

It’s difficult to lose weight if you don’t exercise on a regular basis and you will reach a plateau even if you just cut down on the amount of food that you are consuming. 

You don’t really need to invest hours at the gym; all you need to do is create a weekly fitness routine that you can commit to. It’s not about tormenting yourself with workouts; it’s about finding something you enjoy and therefore will stick with over time.

Your Food

Another thing you must commit to achieving long-term weight loss is switching your eating habits. You’re fighting not only your appetites, but also your own body when trying to reduce weight. According to Australian experts, weight loss diminishes the hormone leptin, that signals to your brain that you’re full, and raises the hormone ghrelin, which drives hunger. According to the study, this hormonal imbalance persists long after you achieve weight loss, making it considerably more difficult to maintain your weight loss.

If you substantially reduce your calorie intake and lose a lot of weight quickly, you’re probably losing muscle. Muscle is the metabolic engine, thus having less of it adds to a slower metabolism. Because you were restricting yourself for so long, eating too little makes you more prone to weight rebound.

Here are a few suggestions to get you started:

  • Keep a food journal 
  • Spending more time reading food labels while doing your groceries
  • Spending more time preparing meals 
  • Identifying suitable portion sizes 
  • Making intentional, rather than mindless, food choices

Your Lifestyle

You must adjust your behavior not only until you achieve your goal weight, but also during the months and years afterward if you want to lose weight and keep it off. That’s because after you finish your “diet,” you’ll almost certainly regain the weight you worked so hard to lose. To lose weight successfully, you must make long-term lifestyle adjustments such as eating healthy foods practically every meal and getting lots of activity each week.

  1. Change undesirable everyday habits. Get up earlier to prepare your lunch, fit in a workout, exercise during your lunch hour, or go for a stroll instead of sitting. People use their hectic schedules as an excuse to ignore their health. 
  2. Pay attention to how you use your free time. To add more movement, you’ll need to pay attention to how you spend your time and where you’re out of balance.
  3. Remove all junk food from your pantry. Having something unhealthy in front of your face will only make things more difficult, no matter how committed you are.

Your Environment

Hang out with people or prolong healthy habits that will support you in your efforts to get healthy. You may be surrounded by temptations at work, such as donuts, vending machines, and employees bringing junk food. Create an environment that promotes and reminds you to make healthy choices. Simply coming into your kitchen and seeing a bowl of fresh fruit can serve as a reminder of what you’re attempting to achieve.

Having Reliable Support Systems

Having friends and family as a support system is beneficial for your weight loss journey. Avoid those who don’t support what you’re doing and try to surround yourself with people who do. For added motivation, a workout companion is a great option.

Consider starting a weight-loss club or joining one that already exists. Invite friends, family, and coworkers to join you for extra motivation.

Mental Health

Food is a source of comfort for many people, and many have relied on it their entire lives to help them deal with emotional issues. It’s critical to identify these behaviors and what motivates them if you want to understand what you’re doing and why.

Your Weight Loss Goals

You’re almost certain to fail if you set unreasonable ambitions for yourself. When you feel like you’re always failing, it’s difficult to lose weight. No one is going to be inspired if they constantly feel like a failure.  The idea is to set realistic objectives. What is appropriate depends on a variety of factors, including heredity, eating habits, activity, and metabolism, to mention a few.

Concentrate on daily or weekly objectives for maximum benefits. Your weekly objective could be to do three cardio workouts at the very least. Choose goals you know you’ll achieve, albeit small but attainable by you.

Expectations vs Reality

There are no easy solutions. Resist the urge to try something risky. Quick starvation diets can harm your weight loss efforts in the long run since they disrupt your metabolism. When you begin your diet, keep in mind that gradual weight loss, such as one to two pounds each week, is the simplest to sustain.

Fad Diets Don’t Lasts

Grapefruit. Maple syrup is a sweetener made from maple trees. Cabbage. Vinegar made from apple cider. Juice. All of these “wonder” diets promise to help you lose weight and burn fat. The harsh reality is that fad diets succeed in the short term by restricting calories, but they don’t produce long-term gains.
