4 Mindless Habits That Are Hurting Your Weight Loss

Get Focused to Get Back on Track


  • Good advice! I think gas stations would go out of business overnight if it were not for their convenience stores. I am one who does not care for the image of gasoline and food together, but they were a godsend on road trips where traffic jams delayed us in the middle of nowhere and we had to get food and drink, and fuel. I do avoid them except for emergencies though. I do not even know what some of the food advertised is- what is a "tornado" for instance? Sounds like a disaster waiting to happen... - 11/29/2014 7:04:48 AM
  • Such great advice. I definitely saved this one in the favs! - 7/8/2014 1:12:43 AM
  • Easy to say get to "get cranking" but when you are exhausted from a 12 hour work day it is difficult to get motivated to cut veggies for snacks and cooking is right out of the question. And walking for 5-10 minutes really does nothing. - 6/22/2014 8:30:22 AM
    Might be helpful for some, but not me.

    If I miss a workout, it's due to an unplanned incident that just can't be helped - my son freaking out over something and insisting mommy "fix it", the cat having hairball issues that need cleaned before aforementioned toddler plays with it, etc. I don't emotionally or mindlessly eat, sleep is gotten the best I can (set bedtime, screen limits, etc), and I never eat 'on the go' unless it's nibbling bits of my breakfast while making it and my son's simultaneously before sitting to eat with him and honestly I think I would pass out if I didn't! - 5/27/2014 5:57:03 PM
  • This is great article but I found it very disruptive to have all the embedded ads popping up. - 5/16/2014 1:08:43 PM
  • Great points I'd never thought about,and good suggestions, too! Thank You. - 11/22/2013 1:57:09 PM
  • This is a great article... the area I always struggle with is skimping on sleep. Too many things to do in a day, so few hours. :((( - 9/9/2013 9:27:07 AM
  • Really great. We should learn to keep health snacks around at those times. Like fruits and veggies but we don't. Since we are trying to have good health and lifestyle. I know it's easy to say than do. But we can do this. - 7/5/2013 8:26:04 AM
  • good one - thanks - 5/14/2013 7:50:11 AM
  • You knew my moves. Multi tasking/eating on the run. Grabbing that protein bar without completing a meal. Rushing skipping a meal.
    I've been doing this since Saturday. - 5/13/2013 8:13:49 PM
    @WANT2LOOKHOT - You have a few choices. You can throw out the unhealthy food if it's too much temptation. You could package it into individual portions and freeze - many cakes can be sliced and wrapped in plastic & frozen, & the meats also. You can eat the foods, but only take small portions. It's your choice.

    You can also ask your husband to keep his snacks in a separate place so you are not tempted, or get him to buy the snacks you don't like. Remember - just because a food is in the house, doesn't mean you HAVE to eat it. - 5/13/2013 3:34:28 PM
  • I have been trying to get out of a rut and this article was SO helpful. Thank you very much. - 5/13/2013 12:31:13 PM
    I agree with MISSKAKEE, it's a great article, but my problem is putting it into action.

  • I wish more people would focus on making their lifestyle changes DOABLE for the rest of their lives. Small, permanent changes over time will trump grand schemes every single time. - 5/12/2013 10:53:57 AM
    I try to keep junk food out of the house but my spouse loves the stuff & he does the grocery shopping. Plus his aunt is always dropping off junk food for the holidays, as a gift. Like today for Mother's Day it was half a chocolate bundt cake & a Tres Leches Cake. Other days its a huge BBQ fajita platter with Chicken, Sausage, Potato Salad, Spanish Rice, Guacamole. You get the pictrure. My husband refuses to tell her anything & it's extremely hard for me to have it around the house without falling prey to it. Short of getting a divorce I don't know what to do about it. - 5/12/2013 10:33:30 AM
