How many times have you tried dieting… yet, not being able to get to your weight goal?
There are a lot of reasons why that is the case.
The most common one studies have found is we overestimate how much we exercise, and we underestimate how much we eat.
Sure enough, there’s no wonder why you can lose weight but when you do it, you aren’t able to keep it off.
But assuming you are accurately assessing both how much you’re exercising and eating, there is a chance you won’t be able to lose weight.
It’s not that common to hear this out there (and you might feel it is obvious), yet…
based on the failed attempts when people go through diets, it’s important to not ignore it.
I’m talking about when you are trying to lose weight.
Here’s what I mean.
Let’s say you want to diet to lose about 10lbs for the next 2 to 3 months.
In one scenario, you’d do this when you are able to manage your schedule enough to not feel pressured, handling your home-related tasks, taking care of yourself and living without stress.
In the other scenario, you try to lose that weight when you’re struggling with bills, are having some conflicts either at work or at home, or seem to barely make it to the end of the day.
In which one do you think you have better chances to lose that weight (and keep it)?…
You see, if you have to deal with other priorities in your life that are taking a lot ofyou mental energy and you’re looking to lose weight at those times, then you would be doing it in the worst time possible for yourself.
So here’s not so common advice.
To make it more likely you’ll lose weight when you want to, make sure you are not facing other problems in your life that are taking a lot of mental energy from you.
Sure, that doesn’t mean you’ll excuse yourself onto believing that you are not doing what you need to lose those pounds because “this isn’t the right time”.
There isn’t and it will never be a right time (let alone a perfect time) to lose weight.
Just make sure you don’t have any added pressure from other areas of your life and you’ll be in a much better position to not only lose your weight, but keep it off.
