8 Mistakes I Made While Trying To Lose Weight
wenton my first diet around five yearsago. Over the past four and a half years
my weight wentup and down as I tried every diet and exercise program under
the sun. Nothing seemed to work for me. Until six months ago I enrolled in a
weightworkshop which taughtme thatI need to change the way I look at food.
It was then that I realized that I had made many mistakesin my quest to lose

In this article I’m going to share with you eight mistakes I made on my quest to
lose weight. I hope by sharing my experienceswith othersthroughoutthe world
via the internet I might be able to help people avoid the mistakes I made. So,
here are the eight mistakes I made while trying to lose weight.
1. I startedtoskipbreakfast
Most people trying to lose weight believe simply eating less and skipping meals
helps shed that fat. And breakfastis a real easy meal to skip. This is one of the
biggest mistakes you can make when on a weight loss diet. If you leave the
housein the morning on an empty stomach you’remuch more tempted to eat
more at morning tea and lunch times. And, calories you eat at breakfasttime
are easily burntthroughoutthe day.
2. I would eat one day and not the next
I would literally eat about 2000+calories one day, feel guilty, and end up
eating about 700 calories the following day. If you “starve” yourself throughout
the day you’remuch more likely to eat morein the evenings, which is not
going to help you lose weight. You should consumemostof your calories in the
3. I bought diet food
When I went shopping I always looked for the foods marked diet, low-fat,
healthy etc. This is a good practice to get into, but I was buying these foods for
the wrong reason. I boughtthesefoods because in my mind it meant I could
more. I would totally disregard portion size. If you eat diet foods in large
portions you’renot doing yourself any favors.

4. I thought I’d always be fat
This is mindsetthat you must break if you wantto losesome serious weight.
Sometimes it feels like you’redoing the rightthings and not making any
progress, this is totally natural. You need to focus on being happy and healthy
and achieving your goals. Try not to get caught up in “the big picture”.
5. I startedeating salads as main meals
Eating salad is a good way of keeping your calorie intake down right? Yes, meal
of salad has much less calories that a pizza but does it have the satisfaction?
When you eat you mind needs to get somesatisfaction from whatyou have
justeaten. I found that when I ate salads for meals a few hours later I was back
I the cupboard looking for more food. I learnt that I was better off eating a
balanced meal with slightly more calories than simply eating a salad and
6. I startedmy new diets onMondays
When I found a new diet that I decided I was going to try I always started it on
a Monday. This meant I would eat all weekend like I was never going to eat
again. Doing this I was justsetting myself up for failure.
7. I was toembarrassedtogo to the gym
Taking the plunge and joining a gym was one of the hardest things I ever did. I
was always worried that people in the gym would be staring at me and talking
about me. I really thought I was too fat to join. My advice is to join a gym!
You’ll be glad you did. I look forward to going to the gym now.
8. I set my goals to high
Setting long term goals is great, but these goals always seem to far off. You
need to set smaller, more reachable goals that you can regularly meet to keep
your motivation high. Set yourself weekly, monthly and three monthly goals.
Once you meet one shortterm goal set a new one for next week.
So there you have it, thoseare the mistakes I made. I now look at weight loss
froma totally different perspectiveand it has paid off. I now help others with
weight loss and keeping healthy.
