15 Reasons You’re Not Losing Weight (And a Solution)

reasons you're not losing weight.jpg

Have you ever heard the story of Sisyphus in Greek Mythology? He’s the guy who was tasked with rolling a boulder up a hill, only to have it roll back down again so he had to start over...for ALL ETERNITY.

Sometimes trying to lose weight can feel a lot like this. You make some progress and are doing well, then there’s a holiday, a celebration, a craving, or a need to drown your sorrows in a gallon of ice cream, and BAM you’re back where you started, struggling to climb weight loss mountain again.

Whatever your reasons for not losing weight, you’re not alone in your struggle. Multiple medical and government agencies believe that half of the American population will be overweight by 2030. A statistic like that tells us there are a lot of people in the same boat.

If you’ve ever asked yourself, “why am I not losing weight?” it’s time you got some answers.

It turns out, your failure to lose weight may not be your fault. There’s more to healthy weight loss than meets the eye. It all starts with the misconception that there are only one or two reasons we gain weight. The truth is, there are 15 common reasons people gain weight or struggle to lose weight. 15! Most weight loss programs or diet plans only address the most common one or two of these reasons. That means they likely didn’t target each of your weight loss needs. Since there could be many other reasons for your failure to lose weight, you become caught in an endless loop, fixing one gap while being thwarted by another.

15 Common Causes of Weight-Loss Failure

The real truth as to why those past products, diets, and everything else didn’t work is. . .

They didn’t target every weight-loss need you have personally.

Researchers have found that there are actually at least 15 common causes of weight-loss failure. And the reality is, since everyone is unique, you will struggle with a different number of those 15 causes than, say, your spouse or neighbor or friend.

Most of those pills, gadgets, and diets only address one, maybe two causes of weight-loss failure anyway.

So you get caught in an endless loop, fixing one gap while being thwarted by another.

So What Exactly Are the 15 Common Causes of Weight-Loss Failure?

1. Too much stress

2. Lack of energy

3. Hypothalamus function

4. Dehydration

5. Poor sleep quality

6. Slow metabolism

7. Weakened digestive system

8. Blood sugar

9. Nutrient deficiency

10. Imbalanced microbiome

11. Inflammatory response

12. Toxins and pathogens

13. Lack of support

14. Lack of activity

15. Lack of knowledge

Which reasons stood out to you? Now think back on your previous weight loss attempts. How many of those reasons did your program address? It’s time to take control of your ability to lose weight. It’s time for you to start achieving your weight loss goals.

The Xyngular 8-Day Jumpstart is a great way to kick off your weight loss journey. You can lose up to 15 pounds in eight days by following the simple Jumpstart guidelines and meal plans. Not only will it help you see results quickly, but it helps you reset your system and prime it for the weight loss journey ahead.*


When setting a weight loss goal, the easiest metric to aim for is a certain weight. But when you’re measuring weight loss, it’s important to remember that the number on the scale doesn’t tell the whole story. (Read this for a list of 5 Reasons Not to Trust the Scale.) That’s why it’s important to take note of non-scale victories along the way.

A non-scale victory is a positive change that comes about because of your new healthy habits. It’s one that can’t be measured in ounces or pounds, but that has an impact on your health. Some ways to recognize non-scale victories are:

  • Take Progress Photos: Believe me, no one wants to take that photo on Day 1 of the journey, but you’ll be glad you did when you look back after 30 days.
  • Take Measurements or Measure Your Body Fat Percentage: Even if your weight isn’t changing, you could still be losing fat. Take weekly measurements and/or measure your body fat percentage to see how your body is changing.
  • Do a Fitness Assessment: This can be something like timing yourself walking or jogging a certain distance to mark your improvement, or it can even be as simple as noticing you’re not as winded after walking up the stairs.
  • Try On Your Old Clothes: Even though you may not feel like you’ve made progress, your clothes may tell a different story. Put on your clothes and see if they fit differently than they did a few weeks ago. Do they zip up easier, fit looser, or feel better? Those are all things to celebrate.
  • Healthy Habits: Sometimes weight loss is about what you gain. Track the positive changes you’re making for your health and well being. Whether you’re exercising more, eating healthier, drinking more water, or even getting more sleep, it’s all something you can be proud of.
