Old Habits Die Hard

Posted on: August 13th, 2014 by Hayley James No Comments

Why do I keep slipping into my old habits? The answer is pretty simple – old habits die hard. You may need to consider what lies behind these bad habits for weight loss success. If you have gained a lot of weight keeping a lifestyle that can be pretty much described as unhealthy and you eat a lot of fast food burgers, spend a lot of time in front of the television and always choose to drink a soda when you can have water instead then it is time for change.

Wondering why you always go back to the unhealthy lifestyle you’ve been trying so hard to give up? Perhaps this checklist could help you determine what’s wrong:

  • You’re not sure if you can do it. You can lose weight and that’s what you should be holding on to. The idea of not having enough strength is going to hold you down and perhaps it may even be the reason why you keep on coming back to the old habits.
  • How much weight do you want to lose? You know that you don’t like your weight right now, but you’re not sure how much weight do you actually need to lose. Perhaps you need to get this ideal weight figured out so that you won’t think that losing 5 pounds gives you the right to eat a donut for snacks.
  • What do you think of healthy dishes? Sometimes, our idea of what is healthy makes us like it even less. A mind set of eating only what’s healthy and believing that such dishes can be delicious too should keep you on your diet plan.

Healthy dishes don’t have to mean bland. Sometimes, they could mean the most delicious one among the options. Old eating habits can die hard, but with a strong heart to overcome a weight problem, can surely make you make things happen.
