Many of us wish to look at ourself and change the way we look instantly. REALITY…we can’t!!! In order to become a healthier person begins with what we put into our bodies and having a strong will power. It also takes hard work and dedication, sore achy bones and muscles, and days of feeling like…you just…want…to…give…up. When I begin a workout regimen, my mind tells me I should feel results in one workout and see them in two. LOL. Do your mind tell you the same? Well…maybe not. I’m sure you wish to see results in a week or two instead of months down the road right? Right….a few weeks of achy bodies and hungry tummies is about all we can stand. And then………we tend to linger into our old ways, but people who lose weight too soon will more than likely gain the weight back even sooner. Slower………………………………………………. is better.
I’ve noticed that people like myself, that may be overweight by 20 to 30 pounds may have a harder time trying to shed their pounds than a person that is considered fat or obese. They tend to lose weight much faster. I believe it’s because their bodies is used doing little to no form of exercise versus our bodies that may receive moderate forms of exercise but not enough to cause the body to shed enough calories to lose weight. At times I become very frustrated with my weight because I am aiming to lose weight but the scale remains the same for weeks at a time. I am still proud of myself for shedding inches and slimming though….thus far I have shed about 3 inches off my waist since October with about 4 inches to go by Spring time. My results won’t come fast, but when I have reached my goal I will be extremely overjoyed by the results and committment I put into changing my life.
I challenge you to stay encouraged and don’t give up on the scale when it doesn’t read the numbers you wish to see.
