Weight Loss: I Am Scared Of Failing Again
5 Reasons Many Women Fail At Losing Weight
Success is most often achieved by those who don't know that failure is inevitable.

If you do not want to end up like all the other women that you have heard about, then you will want to make sure you are focusing on the things that might have brought them down in the first place. By knowing what causes a lot of women to fail at losing weight, you will be able to determine just how to avoid it.
Weight loss resistance is one of the most common health complaints. The inability to exercise or diet your weight away is horribly discouraging, and it breaks my heart to see people suffocated with weight loss advice without finding answers for themselves.
#1. Setting Unrealistic Weight Loss Goals
Having a clear vision of what your weight loss goals are is critical to your success, but many people give up on their weight loss goals because they expect results that take time and perseverance.
If this was the case for you in the past, it can leave you feeling too overwhelmed to do anything at all. You can overcome this paralysis by analysis by setting realistic, short-term goals that still push your comfort zones.

#2. They Listen To Negative Remarks
Even some of the most well-meaning individuals can make some off-handed remarks that can really set you back when it comes to dealing with your struggles with weight loss. The key is to not listen to them – not even for a second.
If you start to find that that is easier said than done, it is time to tell those people that they need to simply change their attitude or you have to take a break from them. After all, your health is on the line.

#3. Give In To Too Many Temptations
You are likely to find that temptations are everywhere. When you are feeling deprived, you are likely to give in to those temptations day after day.
However, there is a way to prevent this. Give yourself one day to eat whatever you want – in moderation, of course. For example, eating an entire extra-large pizza on your own should not be considered “whatever you want”.
However, pick one day a week, such as a Saturday, and eat a meal or have a snack that you would not normally have throughout the rest of the week. This way, you can stay on course with your dieting without feeling as though you are missing out on life.

#5. Hating Yourself
You can't heal a body you hate. I often see patients who aren't able to get healthy and lose weight because of years of self-loathing.
Unconscious assumptions about yourself, that you are not worthy of love or enjoyable things, is a lie. When these false beliefs go unaddressed, even if you had the body you always wanted, it would never be enough.
The Bottom Line
Now that you have those helpful tips, you should find it to be a lot easier to keep yourself motivated in some of the roughest times ahead of you.
Most of what holds us back from getting the things we want is not that we don’t want them enough, but that we are afraid that trying might not be worth it. So take the time to think about what you’re willing to risk, and ask yourself, “What’s the worst that could happen?”
