If you want to lose weight, often pushes frustration after a short time and often raises all the good resolutions. This is how you stay on the ball this time.
“I do not take off and just do not know why!” Do you know this sentence? Many women try to lose ‘2 fast’ 2, 5 or 10 kg and usually fail after a short time miserably or are only annoyed. Nothing is going on anymore, the scale seems frozen and, quite apart from this, and the motivation has long been in the cellar. Stop it! We’ll tell you how the 5 most common barriers to losing weight take lightly and achieve long-term figure and health goals.
All at once want
No matter how impatient you are to achieve your dream figure – take your time. Many experts agree: more than 0.5 to 1 kg of weight loss per week are not included if you want to avoid the dreaded Jojo effect. Depending on how much you want to lose weight, this number varies, however. If you want to lose only 3 kg in total, 1 kilo is already a lot. Aside from the number on the scale, you should keep in mind that the positive effects of healthy diet and exercise are also noticeable elsewhere (remember: muscles weigh more than fat!) It can be much more motivating to check whether the Jeans finally fit again or you suddenly have much more energy. Especially if you are aware that, besides the slimmer figure, you are able to sleep better and deal with stress much more, you will keep your new, healthier lifestyle more.
It sounds trite, but is essential: Who wants to reach its desired figure, must have fun on the way there. Because the journey to the dream body feels like a painful struggle, you will not last long. Create both your diet and your training plan as varied as possible. If it is difficult for you to be creative, look for a friend who walks the same way. Go along run, swap recipes and exercises, visit together courses. It is much harder to make the run around the lake on Monday evening when the SMS comes from the girlfriend: “I’m on the road and in 5 minutes before your door!”
Drawing on certain parts of the body stiffen
We all know that weight loss in certain parts of the body can be difficult sometimes. Ironically, the body parts where you first grow are the ones where you lose weight last. That depends on our genetic predisposition. Stop thinking about your ‘problem zones’; put your focus on the progress you make. “When you start taking care of your body, your complete attitude to diet and exercise will change,” Healthy eating and sports are then no longer a punishment, but a way to make your body happy.
The number on the scale is stagnating
Golden Rule: If the number on the scale for one week stays the same, simply make exactly so on. After all, a stagnating balance is called nothing. If nothing happens for several weeks, try to break through your routine and increase your stance. If you start to lose weight, the body gets used to the higher physical activity and consumes sometimes fewer calories. This is why it is all the more important to vary cardio and strength, always try new things and run an extra kilometer.
