In a world where a lot of the time we can have what we want, when we want, we’ve become accustomed to not having to wait for anything and this is often the case with your weight loss results.
Have you given up and gone back to your old ways when you don’t see significant changes within 2 weeks? Changes and results take time.
Think of it the other way around, did you stop overconsuming your usual amounts of food and drink after not seeing significant weight gain after 2 weeks? No, because weight gain doesn’t just suddenly appear overnight. It gradually builds over time until one day you decide to do something about it.
Fat loss is the same (albeit in the opposite direction), it reduces gradually over time and involves determination and patience, there is no such thing as a quick fix. Every day you take steps to burn more calories than you consume is a day closer to your goal. It may not feel like much is happening from one day to the next, but stick to the process and one day you’ll have to go and buy some new jeans because your old ones are all too big!
Give up and what happens? Nothing changes and the goal you want to reach slips further away from you, so here’s your Monday Motivational pep-talk to trust the process and keep going!!
