What Makes You Lose Excess Weight or Be Unable to Lose Weight At All? Do You Know?

Posted Mar 29 2011 5:00am

If you are only evaluating yourself about how well you do by the outcome—in this case loss of unwanted weight—you will miss the reasons for your successful weight loss or weight-loss failure.

What are the things you are doing that are getting you to your weight-loss goal? Or, what is it that is making you fall short of the mark?

If you think you are getting there because you are motivated to lose weight this time around, you may or may not be right. You can’t tell from the outcome. It may look like a case of being motivated. But it may really be the effect of your weight-loss plan. Not the food plan, but the planning you do to implement sub-goals. What are sub-goals? They are small goals along the way to the big goal. In the case of the weight loss process, they are the actions you prepare yourself to take to change your bad eating habits, to not eat so much, to not eat such fattening foods, and in general, to deal with all kinds of difficulties losing weight.

Better than evaluating the outcome, as you can see, is studying the reasons for the outcome, and evaluating those.
