Reason 1: They go on a Diet.
I always ask the question, what to do you when you get off a diet? Well, majority go back to the they ate that caused them to gain the weight in the first place.
I challenge you to not think about going on a diet but instead change your eating habits and create a lifestyle of healthy eating.
That way once you get the weight off you can keep it off for good. And eating healthy is not hard it is just following some basic principles and consistently making small changes in your habits.
The Key is to pay attention to WHAT you are eating and the ingredient list versus how much calories, fat, carbs it has. Don’t fall for the low-carb, low-fat, high protein diets. Remember omitting 1 of the macro nutrients (fat, protein, carbohydrates) is not good for you.
Reason 2: They Only Pay Attention to what the scale says.
How many times have started a workout program only to look at the scale to see that we lost only 1 pound.
It can be very frustrating.
Remember the scale only tells part of the story. When you start working out you typically start building lean muscle. And per volume muscle weighs more then fat so really you can build a little muscle and lose a lot of fat and your weight stay the same.
Usually the best indicator is how your clothes are fitting. If your clothes are fitting looser you are losing fat. Also pay attention to how your feeling, energy level, and remember everybody loses fat in different places at first.
For you, it may be your stomach or your chest and some it is their hips. The key to losing weight is your overall exercise program and meal plan.
Reason 3: They are Impatient.
How long did it take you to gain the weight? Why do most think we will lose it overnight? It takes time and discipline. I will be straight-forward, it won’t be easy. But it is sooooo worth it.
A lot of people think the weight will come off like the contestants on the biggest loser. But that is not always the case. A good, healthy weight-loss is 2lbs per week. If you are doing that you are kicking butt. So have realistic expectations when you first get going so you don’t set yourself up for failure.
Check this out! Here is the comparison of 5lbs of fat versus 5lbs of muscle. See how much denser the muscle is. This is why you can lose a lot of fat and build a little muscle and the scale won’t change much.
I hope 2019 is off to a Fantastic Start for you and please let us know if there is anything we can ever do for you!
