More often than not we start losing weight, but we never finish, or at least we do not finish in the time that we expected to. When we do not lose ad fast as we would like we stop caring. We stop asking for help and support. We ditch another diet. We throw in the towel on our exercise efforts. Whatever the cause, it is not at all uncommon and we should never beat ourselves up about it. Everyone has given up at some point, maybe for a day, a week or for years but that doesn't mean you're destined for failure. Even if you've started and stopped 100 times before, this time doesn't have to end the same way. I have researched the top 50 most recommended things to do when you are losing steam, not pounds.
