Why Some People Aren’t Successful at Losing and Keeping Weight Off

By: Tammy Hamilton

It usually comes down to one or all of these three things:

1. Lack of organization.
2. Lack of time.
3. Lack of knowledge.

About eighty percent of people who use quick-fix diets will gain all the weight they lose back (or more) within a year. The reality is that quick fix diets don’t work! In fact they can do exactly the opposite of what you hope. They may work short term but never long term. They are usually too extreme for people to maintain which is why people tend to gain the weight back plus some.

In order to lose the weight and keep it off, you must be ready to do the following:

  • You need to make a commitment to yourself and decide that you are ready to change.
  • You need to become educated and use a strategy with little or no thinking.
  • It needs to work well with your busy life and be similar to what you already do and know.
I know it can seem overwhelming but you can make small changes each day that lead to big changes long term. If you need help, we’re here for you!
