The Positive and Negative Domino Effect of Weight Loss

Whether you make a bad decision or a good one, it always seems to snowball into consecutive good or bad decisions until you reach the top or bottom. If this domino effect often happens to you, then this can either make weight loss easy or impossible.

Below is an example of how the domino effect can affect weight loss in a negative way.
It’s an early weekday morning and your alarm wakes you from your slumber. Rather than getting up and starting the day, you decide the extra five or ten minutes of sleep is well worth being late to your scheduled workout.

While you are working out you notice that the weights feel just too heavy today, so you decide to go for a lighter set to give yourself an unnecessary break. Since your day seems a little off already, you decide to have a treat during lunch so you grab a bag of chips and a soda. After this difficult day, you’re too tired to make dinner and instead go out to eat and grab dessert while you are at it.

It’s the next day, the alarm is blaring at you bright and early. You tell yourself that you’re tired from the workout the day before and decide to give yourself an extra hour of sleep instead of exercising. Eventually you’ll stop working out all together and just quit for good.

This is what is known as the domino effect. One bad decision will only lead to another until the end result is quitting for good. Of course, the opposite holds true as well. If you start the day with a bad decision, you’ll be on a downward slide to the bottom, but if you start with a good decision then you won’t be able to stop climbing until you’ve reached success.

How To Lose Weight

Perform your workout at the highest intensity you can and eat a healthy lunch to fuel the muscle building and fat loss process. Avoid eating out by making a good dinner at home and go for a walk after before resting for the night.

If you follow this scenario every single day you won’t be able to stop the constant good decision-making. You’ll be the healthier person you want to be in no time at all.
