Most of the time, we put on weight because of our lifestyle. Our own habits cause the most serious damage to our body by storing fats. When we do realize that, we have already put on some weight. But, putting on weight is much easier than losing it down. To change our habits and lifestyle we will need strong motivation. If we do not have a strong motivation for weight loss, we may start changing our habits but in few days we will start to buckle up and go back to our old lifestyle.
That is why, when we approach the necessary steps for losing weight, we need to assess ourselves if we are enough motivated to make a permanent change in our lifestyle and habits or not. We have to address the causes of distraction in our life that is causing us to put on more weight. A lot of times, emotional stress makes changes to our lifestyle and that is why before we start a weight loss plan, we have to resolve those emotional issues that are causing us to put on weight.
We have to get a strong motivation for an effective and durable weight loss strategy, because such results require permanent change in our habits and lifestyle. We cannot afford to continue eating junk food and have to replace them with healthy foods, which are also helpful for weight loss. Also, we cannot get stuck in a low active lifestyle, we have to add some healthy activities like walking and exercising every day etc.
Small but continuous steps works more than short and drastic steps when planning to lose weight.
