I am 24 years old and I am not good at sitting still. I have a desk job, so as soon as 5 o’clock hits I don’t stop moving until I go to bed. Like many people, I am experiencing a plateau in my weight loss goals.I recently read some articles about why I may not be losing weight. Here are a couple of reasons that jumped out at me.
#1 you rationalize your way out of eating healthy.
Example: I had this really stressful report today so I deserve to treat myself.
#2 You are someone who is constantly on the go and eat more processed foods because of it. This adds things such as preservatives, sugars and salts to your diet.
#3 Stress: An Increase in cortisol levels makes can make you crave sweet things. (Stress Eating)
#4 Using the Scale instead of measurements or body percentages. Maybe your weight has stayed the same, so what? If you have been working out more than you used to, chances are you are losing fat and gaining muscle.
This blog will be all about trying to get myself out of this weight loss plateau. More meal prep tricks and workout tips coming soon! Welcome to my blog 🙂
