Weight Loss Mistakes or Learning Opportunities

Friday, January 10th, 2014

Weight Loss Mistakes are Learning Opportunities

I like to say that weight loss is a journey. However, it is also an education.

  • It is an education on what you need to do.
  • It is an education on what you should avoid.
  • It is learning how to balance the foods you love with healthy foods so that you will get the results you want.
  • It is learning to manage your portions.
  • It’s learning how to increase your activity level.
  • It’s learning to not worry about what others are eating.
  • It’s learning to make the right choices.
  • It’s learning to pass on things sometimes.
  • It’s learning to ignore the critics.
  • It’s an education.
    Let’s learn, let’s have fun, let’s get started, and let’s lose weight.

    See Weight Loss Rewards and See the Future

    Friday, August 30th, 2013

    If we can see the rewards of losing weight, we can see our future. Losing weight is about focusing on the right things. If we focus on the wrong things, we will get wrong results. One of the biggest things that we need to do is to focus on the future, not the present, or the past. We need to focus on our dream. We need to concentrate on our goals. We must not dwell or complain about the process. We must enjoy the process because it is going to give us what we want. The process is something we need to do to get our goal.

    During the process, we will make mistakes. Don’t look at mistakes as failures. Don’t look at the results of those mistakes as punishment. Look at those mistakes as an education. Look at those mistakes as learning what not to do. If we can overcome and learn from our weight loss mistakes, we can win at losing weight. It starts with a dream. Let’s focus on the rewards, let’s see the future, and let’s win at losing weight.

    Mistakes Should Not Keep Us From Losing Weight

    Wednesday, June 12th, 2013

    Weight Loss Mistakes | Weight Loss Education

    Losing weight is about education. It is about learning what we can eat, and in what quantities we can eat them in. During this process, we will misjudge it at times. We will mess up. We will make mistakes. It is natural and part of the process. We are human. We make mistakes.
    It is also natural that we get disappointed when this happens. However, how we deal with this disappointment is important. Do we quit or does it piss us off and make us more determined? This will determine whether we succeed or fail at losing weight. Have the wrong attitude and we will fail. Feel sorry for ourselves and we will stay where we are at. Have the right attitude and we will be a weight loss winner.

    Mistakes are tests. They happen to see if we deserve to be thinner. If we do not wavier in our determination to lose weight, we will win.

    When I was in the weight loss process, I made lots of mistakes. I let myself get discouraged for five minutes. I then thought hard about what I did wrong and how I could avoid doing it in the future. I would then take that knowledge and move forward. The accumulation of all the mistakes, and the knowledge I gained from them, helped me to reach my weight loss goal. It has also allowed me to keep the weight off.

    Weight-loss mistakes are good. However, they are only good if we learn from them.

    Make Weight Loss Mistakes and Still Drop Weight

    Friday, March 1st, 2013

    Weight Loss Mistakes | Drop Weight | Weight Loss Process

    When I was in the weight loss process, I made plenty of mistakes. I overate at times. I ate the wrong foods in the wrong quantities. One day my weight was down the next day it was way up. However, I did not quit.

    Setbacks are part of the weight loss process. We are human. We screw up. However, how you deal with the weight loss mistakes you make will define your results.

    Do you dwell upon the mistakes or do you learn from them? Do you let your setbacks consume you, or do you figure out a way to get back on track? Do you lose doubt that you can do it, or does it piss you off into working harder at it?

    It is not the mistake that means anything, it is your reaction to the mistakes that is important. Remember that mistakes and setbacks are part of the weight loss process. Have the right attitude when they happen, and you will have the results you want. Have a bad attitude when they happen and you will fail. It is your choice.

    Things to Help You Shed the Weight

    Monday, September 10th, 2012

    Losing weight is not always easy. However, there are some simple things that you can do to help you shed the pounds. Below I have listed a few things that you may want to consider.

  • Be Consistent
  • Losing weight is about consistency. You must be consistent with both your physical activity, types and amount of the foods you eat.

  • Be Determined
  • Determination is important if you want to shed the weight. You must have the attitude that you will not fail at losing weight. Once you lose it you must be determined that you will keep it off.

  • Forgive Yourself
  • You will have days that your weight goes up instead of down. It is these times that you must forgive yourself and move on. You must learn from the mistakes you made that day and figure out how not to repeat them. Mistakes and bad days are part of the weight-loss process. They will happen. How you deal with bad days, and weight-loss mistakes will determine your weight-loss success. Will you beat them, or let them beat you? It is up to you to determine which one it will be.

  • Don’t Give Up
  • Winston Churchill said, “Never never never give up.” This is an important thing to remember if you want to shed the pounds. Remember, you can’t lose weight if you quit. Success in losing weight means that you keep at it until you succeed.

    Losing weight is not all about exercise and food. It is about how you think. Attitude, consistency, determination, and learning from your mistakes are part of being successful at losing weight.

    Losing Weight is About Consistency – Weight Loss Advice

    Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

    Losing weight is not about dieting, it is about making minor modifications to your eating and activity level. I never tell people what they have to eat or what they aren’t supposed to eat. Eating for weight loss is about motivation and having balance. It is about balancing the foods you love with healthy foods. It is about balancing exercise and activity with rest. It is also about consistency. It is not about being perfect, but you must be consistent.

    There will be occasions when you don’t eat like you know you should. There will be occasions that you totally blow it. However, if you get back on track you will succeed. There will be times that you eat more than you should. There will be times that you miss a workout. If you make sure it is the exception and not the norm, you will win at losing weight. Don’t let a setback throw you off course. Don’t let it get to you. Don’t let an error in judgement make you quit, moving toward your weight-loss goals. Get back on track, stay consistent and watch the pounds melt away.

    Quit Doing These Things If You Want to Lose Weight

    Monday, April 30th, 2012

    Do you think that you can’t lose weight? Does it feel like all of your weight loss efforts cause you to weight gain? If you want to lose weight, find out which common weight loss mistakes might be preventing you from getting the weight loss results that you desire, then quit doing them.

    Quit Dieting

    Don’t diet, because diets just don’t work. If you want to lose weight and keep it off you need to change your mindset. I did a previous post that talks about this – Change to lose weight. I even wrote a book about it (see below).

    Quit using excuses.

    One of the most common excuses I hear is that “I don’t have enough time.” If you want to lose weight, you have to find time for exercising and other physical activities.

    Quit underestimating the amount of food you eat.

    Do you pay attention to all the food you eat during the day? 30 -calorie bites during the day can really add up. Pay attention to snacks and what you eat while you are cooking.

    Quit thinking that all healthy foods will help you lose weight.

    Healthy food does not mean low calorie food. There are health benefits to eating healthy foods. However, if you eat too much, it may cause you to gain weight.

    Quit sitting around

    You need to move it to lose it. Sitting around won’t cause you to lose weight. Get active and stay active.

    Quit thinking that your activity is more than it really is.

    Working out should not include standing around and talking to people at the gym. I hear it all the time. People say, “I was at the gym for two hours yesterday.” The problem is that they spent an hour and a half standing around talking to people. That’s not exercising.

    Quit thinking that you can eat more because you exercise.

    Just because you are exercising, that does not mean that you can eat more.

    Quit thinking you deserve big results fast with little effort.

    Don’t get frustrated, focus on any accomplishments as you lose weight. Look for things to be proud of in every step of the weight loss process.

    8 Weight Loss Mistakes I Made

    Thursday, March 15th, 2012

    When I was in the weight-loss process, I made mistakes. However, I learned from those mistakes, and I lost 50 pounds in 4 months. Below are some of the mistakes I made. Read them and learn from them, so that you don’t make them.

  • I thought that I could lose it without doing anything different.
  • You can’t lose weight without making changes. It won’t happen.

  • I thought that just because I started exercising, it would be enough.
  • You should exercise if you want to lose weight, however, most people eat way too much and need to reduce their food intake.

  • I thought that I needed to lose a few pounds instead of realizing that I had a weight problem.
  • I was overweight but refused to admit it, to myself or anyone else. You need to admit you have a weight problem, before you are willing to do anything about it.

  • Although my results were fast, I thought they should have been a lot faster.
  • It took me years to gain the weight, but I thought it should come off over night. It takes time to reverse years of overeating.

  • I Did Not Think I Would Have Setbacks
  • Setbacks will happen. There were days I overate and my weight went up instead of down. It happens. There were days that my weight did not move at all. It will happen. That doesn’t mean you failed. It just means that you have had a little setback.

  • I thought I Would Have to Make Big changes
  • You can make small changes for big results. I thought that I had to make drastic changes to lose weight. I didn’t. I just made small incremental changes over time. However, they were changes that I was willing to do from this point forward. If I was not willing to do it from this day forwards, I did not do it. I would find a different direction.

  • Not setting a goal
  • You need to set a weight loss goal if you want to lose weight. Without a weight loss goal, all you have are good intensions.

  • Thinking exercising as a chore
  • If you don’t link to exercise you won’t do it long term. Therefore, you need to find an exercise that you like doing, so that you will be willing to exercise long term.
