3 Weight Loss Mistakes Beginners Make

I’m going to get right to the point today.

Here are the three weight loss mistakes we see beginners make.

1. They set unrealistic goals for themselves.

A lot of people set goals because they have some type of ‘event’ coming up.  

– A milestone birthday

– A wedding

– A trip

– Summer is coming

People have a set amount of weight they’d like to lose in their mind. It’s not the amount of weight that’s unrealistic, it’s the timeline that they’d like to lose it.

2. They go too hard at the start.

If I do more, I’ll get better results right? Right??


Training 7 days per week will wear your body down. You’ll be exhausted!

You might keep this up for a month, maybe more, but eventually you’ll start to slip.  

7 days, 3 days, 1 day/week, then nothing.  

You’ll gain the weight back and you’re back to where you started.

3. They change everything at once.

Imagine starting a new job, going back to school, and having a kid all in the same week.

Probably wouldn’t go great…

So why do we think we can undo years of bad habits in the first week?

There’s too much friction for you to be successful.

If you can’t see yourself being able to stick with a plan for at least 12 months, you should rethink your plan.

What you need is a sustainable approach.
