Why is my weight loss progress so slow?

 How to Deal with the Fact your Weight Loss Progress is Slow? One of the things that makes losing weight so difficult is the fact that you can't just watch your diet for a week or two to reach your goal weight; it usually takes a long time, although of course this depends on how much weight you have to lose. If you're more than fifty pounds overweight, it's going to take you quite a while to reach your weight loss goal if you're losing the recommended amount of one to two pounds a week. However, it's better to lose weight gradually and keep it off than to hit the goal quickly and then gain back every pound lost.

So you have to accept the fact that you won't lose your excess weight overnight; you probably won't reach your weight loss goal even in a few weeks. It may take months or even years to reach a weight you are happy with, but it will be worth it in the end. If you're aiming for gradual weight loss, you should at least be able to stick to a sensible, calorie-controlled diet, rather than following a fad diet that tells you not to eat this and that. It's clear that you can't stick to a diet that requires you to constantly give up the foods you love.

Therefore, it makes sense to change your eating habits so that you consume fewer calories and that the foods you eat provide you with the nutrients your body needs. You might be able to lose weight fast just by eating cabbage soup, but that's hardly the healthiest approach, and you'll be feeling hungry, lethargic, and unhappy all the time when you're on such a ridiculous diet. Such an unhealthy diet is bad for your health, and over the long term you might see your weight triggering a yo-yo effect, which isn't exactly good for your physical health or self-esteem.

It may be hard to accept that you will lose weight slowly, but it is certainly better to lose weight in a way that doesn't endanger your health and doesn't make you depressed. Of course, it takes a lot of determination to reach your weight goal, but when you do, you can be proud of yourself and hopefully have developed the habits needed to maintain a healthy weight.
