5 Reasons We Failed to Lose Weight in 2014

Have you ever thought that, "in order to fix a problem, you need to admit that you have a problem?" I think that neglect and condescending thoughts can kill your weight loss and dieting. We keep expecting results and we keep doing the same things that brought us no results the year before. I feel like we need to evaluate 5 reasons we failed to lose weight in 2014, and then I will go over how we can fix these 5 things in the next blog post. A lot of us create the equation of insanity, or, "doing the same thing and expecting different results." Let's break down these 5 reasons and get started!

1. We Didn't Eating Appropriately
The first reason that we didn't lose weight is because we didn't appropriately to our weight loss program or diet. We ate whatever we wanted and we sit there and say, "I didn't lose weight!" When you eat white breads instead of wheat, you pack on weight whether you eat less or not. These are the facts. We didn't eat properly.

2. We Retained Too Much Water
I think that we normally think of weight that we lose as muffin top, jiggling, and bulging fat. This is not the only form of weight that we lose. Drinking water is essential for weight loss and dieting, but when we eat overly salty foods, it makes our body retain water all the easier. Water weighs a good bit. We eat TV dinners, drink a ton of water, and then it sticks.

3. We Ate Mindlessly
We ate too much food when we were mindless. What do I mean? I mean that we ate when we were bored, not when we were hungry. This is what happens when we stay close to the house after work or school. We get home from school and we immediately sit down and pig out. We don't eat because we're hungry. Mindless eating is empty eating!

4. We Ate Too Much Due to Stress
This is one that we can all relate too. We worry about tests at school or at work, worry about our family or kids, we worry about stuff in our world, the list goes on and on. When we sit down after work and we eat a whole pint of ice cream and then regret it later on, we put ourselves into weight gain overdrive. Stress is the #1 reason that people gain weight instead of losing it.

5. We Didn't Work Out Correctly
There is a right and wrong way to work out? There certainly is! Our last reason that we didn't lose weight in 2014 is that we didn't work out correctly. We either didn't work out enough or we didn't do the right exercises for burn fat and weight. All too often I hear people saying that they are playing sports, but they don't do any cardio.

Altogether, I think that we will be able to fix these 5 reasons that we didn't lose weight in 2014 and we will give you some tips and tools on how to fix these mistakes. Let's not have a repeat year because we were negligent. Let's fix these problems, gain a new mindset, and boost our weight loss this year, and conquer those weight loss goals. I believe that you guys can do this! Share these reasons with family and friends. Feel free to comment at the bottom and share your opinion!
