9 Easy-to-Fix Mistakes People Make When Trying to Lose Weight

If you’re reading this blog right now, there’s a good chance you’ve tried to lose weight before, and there’s a really good chance that you aren’t where you want to be right now.

And that’s ok! At Transform, we believe everyone deserves to achieve their goals and transform their lives, and we’re here to help show people how.

That’s why we’ve put together a list of 9 common mistakes we see people making when they are trying to lose weight.

Let’s run through why these mistakes are so critical and what you can do so you can avoid making them start achieving results!

#1. Not Starting with Your Why

This is one of the biggest mistakes people can make before even starting their transformation journey.

Beginning your journey without knowing exactly WHY you want to make a change is a surefire way to give up and quit eventually. When the going gets tough, and when life throws you curveballs, what will keep you on track?

What will keep you dedicated to your goal? What will keep you from throwing in the towel and giving up on your goals

Your WHY is a powerful and specific reason for you wanting to transform your life. Don’t start your weight loss program before deciding on your WHY. You can read more about it by clicking here.

#2. Not Replacing a Meal with a Shake

Weight loss comes down to consuming fewer calories than you burn. Each day, the goal is to eat enough calories to stay full and fueled, but few enough to be in a calorie deficit.

One of the easiest ways to reduce calories AND stay feeling full between meals is by replacing a meal with a delicious meal replacement shake.

Each serving provides a balanced, calorie-controlled meal that will also help keep you feeling full for hours!

By replacing up to 2 meals a day with this delicious shake, you can reduce your calories, feel full, and start losing weight.

#3. Not Boosting Energy

Meal prepping, planning, exercising, reducing calories while feeling full, and chasing behind your daily to-do list (grocery shopping, etc.) can become so challenging to stay on top of when you feel tired most of the day.

And when you don’t have the energy to stay on track with your goals, losing weight becomes impossible.

#4. Taking On Too Much All At Once

The secret to weight loss isn’t changing things all at once. This can be extremely overwhelming, and it is one reason why people give up on their weight loss attempts so quickly.

The key is to start out by making a small change that you can stick to no matter what. This helps build up positive momentum as you consistently do everything within your power to keep this commitment.

After some time, you'll then focus on another commitment/change. Pretty soon, you'll have adopted sustainable, realistic changes that will all lead to absolutely amazing results over time.

The process of picking and sticking to these changes is what we call making power promises. Watch the video above to learn more!

#5. Not Having a Personalized Plan

While following generic and “one-size-fits-all” weight loss plans might produce some results, in the beginning, they aren’t customized to react to weight loss plateaus that you are going to run into.

Not to mention, they aren’t customized for your preferences and specific needs.

To achieve the best weight loss results possible, you need to be following a personalized plan, plain and simple!

Your plan needs to be customized to your body, goals, and preferences. You need a weight loss plan that will guide you along, adapt to your preferences, and adjust according to your progress to keep you going.

#6. Not Measuring Your Calories

Not keeping track of your calories is a surefire way to eat too many, take yourself out of the weight loss zone, and even cause you to gain weight when you’re trying to lose!

When it comes to weight loss, it all comes down to burning more calories than you consume. In other words, you need to be reducing the calories that you intake each day.

Keeping track of your calories will help you make sure you are eating enough to stay energized and few enough to see consistent, impressive weight loss results.

#7. Not Measuring Your Calories Burned

Just like counting your calories is essential, keeping track of your calories burned is another excellent practice.

This helps you identify your calorie deficit each day, which will, in turn, help you ensure you are on track to losing weight.

#8. Not Getting Enough Water

Drinking enough water is super important for your transformation for several reasons. Staying adequately hydrated can help support energy levels, curb hunger, boost metabolism, increase focus–just to name a few!

And guess what? And according to doctors, up to 75% of Americans may suffer from chronic dehydration.

#9. Not Having Accountability

Weight loss can be challenging. There’s no doubt about it.

Even worse, going about it alone–without any support group–can make for a very, very lonely and unproductive journey. In fact, without a support group, there’s a 76% chance of gaining back some of the weight in a matter of months.

If you’re trying to lose weight, you need to increase your accountability. This will help keep you on track with your goals.
