It takes time to lose weight
Weight loss can take time, although we may want to lose weight fast, it is often not healthy to lose weight so rapidly. On average, a person is recommended to lose about 1 or 2 pounds of their body weight to do so safely.
1 or 2 pounds doesn’t sound like a lot, however, over the course of time this will lead to great changes in your overall weight, appearance, and health. You’d be surprised at how much of an improvement losing a few pounds can do to your life.
It might seem simple to take the “easy” route and use diet pills, fad diets, and even surgery to reach your goals fast. Unfortunately, this can often lead to unpleasurable cosmetic results and it can be detrimental to your overall health.
Joni had always struggled with her weight and after such a long battle, she decided to finally give in to surgery to resolve her weight problem. Things were wonderful for a time, she had the body she wanted, but eventually she found that the weight was quickly coming back. As a last resort, she came to Fast Fit Body Sculpting and she now has maintained her weight without the need or surgery or diets.
Weight loss will take time to get rid off, just as it took time to accumulate those extra pounds. Wanting to rush and get fast results can often lead to poor experiences. Therefore, it is better to lose fat the healthy way.
There will be challenges
While on your weight loss journey, things will not always work out to the best case scenario. For some people, it might be difficult to do everything you planned to do due to daily life impeding on your goals.
A major factor that often goes unaccounted for is age.
Losing weight becomes more difficult for a variety of reasons, but it is mainly due to the hormonal change, the body is less efficient, and muscle loss which leads to increased fat production.
Another hidden threat is visceral fat which is the type of fat that will hide under the muscle and wrap itself around our organs, suffocating them and preventing them from functioning properly.
Here at Fast Fit Body Sculpting, we use technology to specifically target visceral fat to change your body from the inside out with maximum results and minimal effort. We have highly trained professionals that will aid you in your fat loss and weight loss journey.
Just as with anything else that is worth fighting for, weight loss can sometimes be a struggle. Age, lifestyle, and many other factors can impede our goals. However, there are always ways to go around these problems and it is always good to ask for help from others.
Set small goals for weight loss
Setting small goals has been shown to provide much better results when losing weight. This is because reaching small goals helps you to keep on going forward if you know that you are progressing, even if it is just a small step and not a giant leap.
For instance, if you decide to set small goals such as:
- Walk for 30 minutes every day
- Eat some vegetables at least once a day
- Make small tweaks to snack choices
In comparison to setting large goals like:
- Running 10 miles
- Eating vegetables and fruits only
- No snacking at all
Weight loss doesn't have to be miserable
Weight loss can be a fearsome topic for many. The thought of changing our lifestyle, our eating habits, and even considering exercising can cripple someone’s ability to progress with their weight loss journey.
However, weight loss doesn’t have to be miserable.
Have fun with your weight loss!
Try to find something you enjoy in order to keep yourself motivated towards your goal. Finding an enjoyable sport, a quirky cookbook, or a group of people that are trying to do the same will go a long way with making your weight loss a fun part of your life, not a chore or a hassle.
Nicole was often mistaken for a pregnant woman due to her weight. After a long time of having to explain that she was not, she was determined to lose the weight, but the gym and the diets did not help her or provide long lasting results.
Thankfully for her, after coming to Fast Fit Body Sculpting, Nicole was able to reach her goals with the help of our Weight Loss and Fat Loss Technology. On top of it all, she found that riding her bike to and from work provided her with a fun time and an activity that kept her moving and exercising.
Enjoying yourself and having fun with you weight loss will do more good in the long run because it will keep you going. Consistency will always come out on top. Meaning, it is better to do a little bit of something multiple times a week than to go all out in a single day.
Rewarding yourself is a major part of your weight loss journey. It is important to remember not to be too hard on yourself throughout the process as stress and negativity can really deter you from making progress.
That being said, it is also important to surround yourself with positive influences and those who support the changes you are willing to make to improve your life, health, appearance, and overall well-being.
