When striving to lose weight, it is important not to compete with others. Each person is different and by comparing yourself to others motivation could be lost. It is also important to note that each person loses weight differently, and therefore, it is not practical to compare yourself to other people.
That said, it helps to get some support, especially if you are adding a regular exercise routine, like going to the gym in with your weight loss plans. Indeed, exercise is an important part of maintaining a healthy body, but don’t take things too hard to start with. Take your time and build up any exercise routine – getting injured or giving up because you set yourself too tough a task is counter-productive.
Finally, allow yourself a treat. Deprivation is one of the biggest causes of weight loss failure. When you completely deprive yourself of foods you love, it can often lead to a binge if your resolve weakens. Instead of completely eliminating your favorite junk foods, allow yourself a small amount as a treat once in a while. Moderation is the key here – a single cookie instead of the whole pack will satisfy your sweet tooth without spoiling your diet.
