1. You rushed it.

Any crash diet or methods that propose fast results don't have lasting benefits. The weight that you lost after doing Beyoncé's crazy Master Cleanse will come back as soon as you chomp on solid foods again. Also, when you restrict yourself to severe diets to ensure quick waist-slimming results, it's going to be difficult to incorporate it into your lifestyle.

2. You see your weight goal as the end goal. 

Always remember that diet and exercise are meant to be part of your daily life, and not just something you do when summer season kicks in. Don't go devouring all the fast food available just because you've already reached your goal weight. Keep in mind that you need to maintain it, too.

3. You have unrealistic expectations.

All of us have fitspirations, but you need to remember that their body type is far from what you have. Genetics, bone structure, and celebrity trainers are major factors to how they got their fit physiques. Acknowledge your body type. Plus, skinny is not sexy—strong is. It's better to focus on your body's health and endurance.

4. You are too hard on yourself. 

Again, when you're bound by strict dieting and exercise rules, you'll just feel chained to your fitness goal. Motivation and inspiration is vital in weight loss, so just enjoy and congratulate yourself every time you make a choice to be healthy.

5. You want to lose weight for the wrong reasons.

Usually, bikini season or a wedding can force you to trim down, but these are just short-term goals. You'll forget about your #BalikAlindog plans once these events have passed. Try thinking of a long-term objective: You aim for fit bod and healthier lifestyle to live longer.
