7 things that can stand in the way of weight loss

Certain habits can hinder your attempts to lose weight - and keep it away.
If you've changed your eating habits to focus on healthier foods and taken your workout seriously, you can expect to lose weight. However, the reality is that despite what you may have believed, weight loss is more complicated than calorie consumption versus calorie consumption. If you are trying to lose weight, check these habits that may interfere with your efforts.
1. You save on protein.
If you normally eat a muffin or avocado toast for breakfast, you may need to increase your protein intake. Research has shown that a high-protein breakfast can help alleviate hunger, so you may be less tempted to have a morning snack.
Protein is also important at lunch and dinner. If you routinely eat salads or sip gazpacho without accompanying protein - such as boiled egg, yogurt, beans, meat, poultry, or fish - over time, this can lead to a decrease in muscle tissue, which means that your metabolism will slow down and mak…

Watch Taquarius Wair Accept the ESPYs' Jimmy V Award For Perseverance in a Powerful Clip

At 3 a.m. on March 22, 2005, 4-year-old Taquarius Wair endured a life-changing house fire that resulted in severe burns across his body and the loss of all the fingers on his left hand. The fire, which also took the life of Wair's 6-year-old sister Shawnee, has had a lasting impact on him and his family. After slipping into a coma for a month, Wair was given just a 20 percent chance of survival and underwent numerous medical procedures including skin grafts and reconstructive surgery, according to ESPN. Despite the devastation Wair suffered at such a young age, the now-19-year-old college student has managed to channel all that he's learned over the years into an unmatched passion for football.

"A lot of people look at me and don't think I'm normal," Wair said in his acceptance video during the 2020 ESPYs. "When I'm on the field, I'm just like everybody else. It don't matter . . . My life became memorable when I found football. They put the ball in my hands, it was over from there . . . I put that helmet on, walked onto the field. I was just like everybody else out there."

"I use the phrase 'Don't give up' in my life every day, and I will continue to do so in the fight for my dream."

Despite being held back by past coaches because of the incident, Wair has remained dedicated to the sport. In honor of Wair's passion and determination, Seattle Seahawks linebacker Shaquem Griffin virtually presented the young athlete with the ESPYs' Jimmy V Award For Perseverance on June 21. The award, which was instituted in 2007, is named after North Carolina State University basketball coach Jim Valvano, who gave a moving speech during his acceptance of the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the 1993 ESPYs. At the time, Valvano had just months left to live after being diagnosed with glandular cancer.

"It is an honor to receive the Jimmy V Award For Perseverance and humbling to be on a list with the previous recipients," Wair said. "I use the phrase 'Don't give up' in my life every day, and I will continue to do so in the fight for my dream."

In August 2019, the Minnesota Vikings hosted Wair and his family at US Bank Stadium and featured him as the evening's Hometown Hero during a game against the Seattle Seahawks. Wair is now a rising sophomore at Mesabi Range College and plans to continue training until he's eligible to be drafted into the NFL. "I just want to be successful," he said. "Keep moving. Keep your head up. You might have some ups and downs, [but] just don't give up. Follow your dreams . . . I chase what I believe in and I'm here. Let's see where I can go from here. Stay tuned."
