3. Over Exercising
Lots of people choose to exercise every day, sometimes multiple times a day to lose weight. It works at first but again this is not sustainable, especially if you never used to work out before. Going from zero exercises to spending every day at the gym will only make you feel exhausted and make you want to quit. It’s better to start small, 30 minutes of exercise 3 times a week and work from there. Another downside of over-exercising is that once you reach your goal you’re very likely to stop exercising as much, and your body will interpret that as “time to gain the weight back”.

4. Underlying Problems
Another common reason people gain back the weight they lost is that it wasn’t the real problem, to begin with. If you’re depressed or struggle with some emotional problems, losing weight won’t really fix it. You’re likely to realize that after all the hard work you’re still unhappy and go back to your old ways. It’s important to address those other underlying problems first.
5. Sedentary Lifestyle
A sedentary lifestyle isn’t good for anyone. We’re meant to move around. So if you lost weight and then decided you can now spend hours in front of a TV or your computer and drive to the store 2 blocks away instead of walking – we’ve got bad news for you. All that sitting around is going to result in weight gain. Always stay active!
