Are You Sabotaging Your Weight Loss?
Yes, sometimes we are our own worst enemy, and can, and do in many ways sabotage our weight loss goals. Here are just a few ways you may be sabotaging your self.
Exercising and than treating your self to some sweet snacks.
Keeping food in your home you shouldn't eat.
Shopping when you are hungry.
Eating at night.
Buying new clothes because the ones you own are too tight.
Exercising can, and will cause you to be hungry, depending on what time of day we exercise should depend on our caloric intake. We should not reward our selves for getting fit and healthy, the way we will look and feel once we meet our goal is our reward.
If we do not eat a particular food, do not buy it, our whole family should be getting healthy with us. Do the grandchildren like to have a snack when come by? Have mom or dad bring it with, if we want to do something special for them, do a small amount. There is no need for us to have a whole package of cookies sitting in our cupboards waiting for a child's visit.
Shopping when we are hungry is one of the worst things we can do, we always end up buying stuff we know does not need to go into our bodies.
We have no need to eat at night, food is energy which is we do not need at night when we are doing nothing.
Buying clothes because the ones we have are too tight is not the solution, it only allows us to be more comfortable. By wearing those uncomfortable clothes we should be motivated to strive harder to do what we need to do to make them fit, I know it does me.
These are things I have done or do, and realize that all I am doing is sabotaging my self. I can not achieve the health and fitness I want to if I do these things, thought I would share.
Are you sabotaging your self?
