How many times have you heard people lamenting over all the weight they’ve gained back after a battle with weight loss? How many times has that been your story? Let’s briefly dig in to the possible reasons why you’re not keeping the weight you lost off.
First things first, what you’re about to read is certainly not an exhaustive list, however it will quickly outline a few common reasons many people like you do not reach longterm success in weight loss. Going forward, it may seem like this blog post is trying to beat you over the head with your mistakes, and it may even seem like these pitfalls are obvious.
Given that, what are you doing right now to help clarify your mistakes and use those pieces of insight to crystallize solutions?
Let’s get to work!
1. You did not set up the maintenance plan after your weight loss program
That seems like a cruel trick, doesn’t it? How are you supposed to have a maintenance plan when all you want to do is rest on your laurels over your successful weight loss program?
That sounds like you’ll just be on a restrictive diet for the rest of your life!
Many well-intentioned people like you attempting to better their health seem to see only one side of their weight loss plan: the goal weight. Though having a goal weight is an important step to begin a weight loss plan and stay on course, the plan after you crush the weight loss goal is extremely important, if not more important. This is one of the keys to keeping that weight off and not wasting all that hard work you put in. If you want to go more in depth on this, click here.
2. You’re were misled by a Yo-yo Diet Profiteer and used unsustainable methods to lose the weight
This is something near and dear to Cornerstone Weight Loss since the mission is to help you better understand how food affects your body in a common sense way that puts you in control of how you look. In fact, Cornerstone Weight Loss was started to help those who have been taken advantage of by all the Yo-yo diet profiteers and their snake oil. Many of these abusive charlatans use fear-based tactics to lure the unsuspecting into falling for their “magic bullet” diet plans. (Click here for an embarrassing story.). Many of these plans will back you into such a food-restricted corner that its only a matter of time before you completely undo all your hard work by having multiple “cheat days.” The psychological effects of this have been shown to get some people from ever trying to lose weight again! If this has happened to you, rest assured it not your fault and it’s completely reversible. After reading this blog post, you’ll have the option to get into contact with a weight loss professional who can help you climb out of the ditch you were shoved into by the Yo-yo Diet Profiteers.
3. You didn’t fully understand why you lost the weight in the first place
Time and time again we see well-intentioned, motivated people like you find an adequate professional who can get you to lose weight, but they tend to treat innocent questions from you as accusations or threats to their authority. You’re probably becoming aware that the fitness industry is not a tame beast and there are a great deal of big egos out there. Sometimes these egos can give you the results you’re looking for but the buck stops there. After your goal is met you are left still needing someone’s help because you weren’t allowed to ask the why behind your great results. Sometimes this is a tactic used to keep you coming back, and sometimes this is just a blind spot. Whatever the reason, however, it’s you who suffers in the long run. In order to understand what goes on behind the scenes so-to-speak, you either need to do a ton of research and testing yourself, or you could hire a guide who actually wants to help you better understand how food affects your body in a common sense way that puts you in control of how you look.
