Here are all the annoying things that inevitably happen when you’re trying to lose weight.

1. People bring cake to work to share the day after you start your diet

Talk about temptation. What are they trying to do… kill me?

2. Nobody else wants to hear about your new diet

"It’s a no-gluten, all paleo, clean, no carbs, no fat, all liquid diet. It’s absolutely miserable but it’ll help me lose three pounds..."

3. You’re starving. Like, all the time

I just want to eat something… more! I need more out of life than this! (Post continues after gallery.)


4. You are constantly thinking about food

I need food. I need it now. I need it to be somewhat unhealthy, substantial and I need all the guilty feelings to leave me alone about it.

5. You break down and eat your "safety net" food

I can’t believe I ate all my special snacks… they were supposed to last me for the next month!

6. You feel so guilty about it you never want to eat again

…for like an hour. Then you realise you’re hungry so you get something to eat.

7. You talk about your diet some more

"So, I’m back on the wagon again and now I’m going to add 40 minutes of cardio and maybe some weights to my health regimen…"

8. You think you can totally see a difference after one day of eating healthy

Dang… I look good! Can’t you tell?

9. You get to the gym like once and feel great about it

I am working out so hard right now. I can feel sweat… almost.

10. You try really hard to get excited about eating salad

Even though you realise salad is crap and never fills you up like you want it to.

11. You get sick of people telling you, “You don’t need to lose weight.”

Stop lying to me, people.
