9You are wearing uncomfortable clothes

Nowadays, most jobs require you to dress well, but a tight suit and high heels do you no good when it comes to weight loss as they prevent you from taking the stairs. Not to mention that these type of clothes will make you want to skip those quick walks after lunch that can prove very useful when you are trying to lose weight. So if you are looking to achieve your goals, consider wearing more comfortable clothes.
