Losing weight is not easy, especially when you want it off now! Think about it…
For years you have been doing your best to put weight on and at the time it feels awesome. You eat what you want, drink what you want, and live like there’s no tomorrow.
But wait…there is tomorrow! And as you get older your metabolism slows down and you can’t do what you once did. Wait, what? I can’t go on all night benders, eat pizza, and prep for my summer bikini season.
I’m not saying you can’t, but you just won’t get the results you want.
Have you ever ran into an old friend or roommate that has lost a lot of weight since you saw them last. Did you ask them how they did it? If you did, were you surprised when they said…
I lost all my weight eating doughnuts, pizza, and beer.
No, you weren’t surprised because that didn’t happen! They told you it happened with hard work, a clean diet, and a little sacrifice!
That is the secret pill! Hard work, sacrifice, and good eating habits. The faster you realize this, then the faster you will get results.
I used to just cut calories and lose weight! What Happened??
College was awesome! You could eat and drink what ever you wanted and nothing would happen. Heck, sometimes you wouldn’t even get a hangover the next day!
But, once you graduate or move on from your 20’s or 30’s you metabolism does the same. And if you continue the same eating and drinking habits, eventually father time catches up to you. Now you can’t eat and drink what you want and maintain a ideal body weight or circumference.
Now that you have decided to lose weight, you want it to happen…
Now, Right Away, and In a Hurry!
Except you spent years putting the weight on, and it will take some time and patience to get it off!
3 Reasons Why I Am Not Losing Weight
1 You are obsessing too much about the scale!
The scale is not the only measurement you should consider. You body has a mind of its own and when you start an exercise program or healthy diet, you will notice other changes:
- The way you feel
- How your clothes fit
- Body Measurements
- Body weight
- Body Fat
Many of my clients get results in some of these other areas before the scale even budges. However, if you weight yourself every day and obsess about it, you will spike your cortisol levels and your body will hold onto your weight.
So, fog-get about it!
2 You are not changing your habits
If you freak out because the scale isn’t moving and then go out on a bender, don’t even think about getting back on it. It takes a bit for your body to process all that alcohol and empty calories, so give it a few days before you start to measure.
And when you do, be honest with yourself! If the scale doesn’t move, ask youself…
- Have I been exercising (and sweating)?
- Is my diet on track?
- Did that pizza a beer I had at 11 pm last night effect this? MMMM….yes it did!!
3 You are trying to out-train your diet
When it comes to weight loss 80% of you gains have to do with diet. Yes, 80%! So, you can’t do hours in the gym and spin class and then go home and pig out on Lays and Coca-Cola and expect some changes.
To reach your goals you need to make some sacrifices. And if you aren’t will to make those sacrifices, then it’s time to accept the body you have created.
