If You Keep These Habits, You’ll Never Lose Those Final Pounds

Everybody knows that it’s so much easier to put weight on than to get it off. You can easily put on ten pounds on a week-long cruise after spending too much time at the buffet, and take several months to shed that weight. In college, you may have fallen victim to the freshman 15, but those extra pounds stayed until long after you were a college graduate. Losing weight requires willpower; gaining weight means giving into temptation. Naturally, the latter of the two is so much easier (and feels better in the moment). It’s no wonder that some people, in spite of their best efforts, cannot get to their ideal weight for years. Here’s the real issue: some bad habits are exponentially worse than the good habits are good. What I mean is that making one little mistake can undo ten positive behaviors, at least when it comes to weight loss. If you keep these bad habits, you’ll never shed those final pounds.

Confiding in the wrong friends

Some of your friends take it too easy on you. In fact, some of them are also looking for excuses not to live a healthy lifestyle. These are not the friends you should confide in about your bad habits and your desire to lose weight. They’ll always tell you that, “You’re fine—you’re doing great. Diets are stupid. You don’t need to lose weight.”
