3 Weight Loss Crimes People Commit

While most people are not fluent in the language of weight loss they do have a basic idea of how to go about losing weight. For exercise, people will run on treadmills or in parks and become members at a gym. For nutrition, they eat more salads and try to become estranged to fast food restaurants. Even though these are good action steps, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that every state had an obesity rate greater than 20%.

Clearly, there were some criminal offenses that people were committing that prevented them from losing weight.

Weight Loss Crimes

First Weight Loss Crime People commit

The first crime they commit is not being consistent with their weight loss activities. If you’ve ever purchased Tony Horton’s P90X or Shaun T’s insanity programs you will see how they indirectly stress consistency. In other words their program plans ensure that you exercise at least five days a week.

On the other hand, people skip days from the gym and also take a chance by driving through the drive-thru where they proceed to order that double cheese burger with super size fries and a jumbo coke. There is a saying that “Compromise hides itself in the shadows of rationalizations and justifications.” Your hidden actions will be brought to life by your extra poundage.

I have noticed with amazement that people go to the gym for two years and still remain the same. However, when they make a statement that they can get the same protein from fry chicken as from baked chicken; then I cease to be amazed.

Your defence:

Be consistent and uncompromising.

Second Weight Loss Crime People commit

The second crime they commit with weight loss is not making it a part of their lifestyle. You may have lost the 30, 50 or 80 pounds you were working so hard to lose but that does not mean the buck stops there. If you realize all those wonderful programs that you can purchase to help you lose weight usually stop at 90 days then it is up to you to continue.

I can’t imagine putting in all that hard-work to regain all those pounds. It just seems as though 3 months were wasted. Your time and health are precious so don’t let all that hard work go to waste.

Your defence:

Vary your workouts and look for exciting new programs or ways to keep you motivated to exercise. Also, look out for new tasty and healthy recipes and restaurants that have meals in line with good nutrition.

Third Weight Loss Crime People commit

The third crime they commit is not knowing what they want so that their actions can be in line with their wants. For example, losing weight is good but not good enough. Vague goals do not get accomplished but a specific goal with specific action steps trumps a vague goal any day. Get a scale and step on it to see where you are and determine where you want to be. Maybe the difference is 40 pounds.

Now you want to slash 40 pounds from your waistline. It’s that simple. Weekly, you will now have an incentive to eat healthier. All those weeks add up to months which will then equal a year.

Your defence:

Figure out what you are willing to give up to get what you want. For example, less television time so that you can be in the gym 3 times a week. Nothing in life comes easy. There is a price to everything even that waistline that you so desire.
