Starting and sticking to a weight-loss plan isn't easy. Even if you're paying close attention to your diet and consistently working out, it's possible that just one misstep can throw you off course entirely.
Bonnie Taub-Dix, RDN, author of Read It Before You Eat It says there are a few less-than-obvious mistakes that can sabotage any well-intentioned diet plan. "One mistake I see often is when clients think that calories from healthy foods don't count," she says. "Even though they are eating healthfully, skipping desserts, and exercising, they're eating too much."
But when there's just one mistake standing between you and your weight-loss goals, you have the power to fix it once you've identified the problem. Just ask these 6 women who've done it.
