Anyone who’s ever tried losing weight knows there’s a tipping point — your weight loss stalls, you get frustrated, and since you’re sure those last few pounds will never come off, you just quit it all.
People often think this is something they’re doing wrong, that they’re making mistakes that keep the weight on. There are some surprising reasons you might not be losing weight that you didn’t think were possible. And with all the myths out there about food and exercise, it’s hard to know what to try next.
We asked women who have done the impossible — lost the last 10 pounds and kept it off — how they really did it. While reading these tips, keep in mind that there’s no one fix that works for everyone. While one diet might feel good for one person, another person might thrive doing things completely differently. And people have lost weight in all kinds of ways — did you know one guy lost weight by eating pizza every single day? We doubt that would do the trick for everyone.
However, if you want to hear from the perspectives of real women about how they kept the weight off, this advice is for you.
