Losing Weight Doesn't Have To Be Hard

Aug 27, 2008
How would you like to lose twenty-five, fifty, or even one hundred pounds in just month? Or drop two dress sizes by the end of the week? There's no need to exercise, just take this magic pill with every meal, and no lifestyle changes are necessary.

Yes, that sounds appealing. It sounds quite impossible as well. For some reason, though, millions of people still fall for the many scams available in the health, diet, and fitness industries. These overnight success programs may have testimonials and pictures to back them up, but could these rapid transformations really be safe for a person's body and mind.

Fat loss can be a quick and easy process but it all depends on your definitions of the words "quick" and "easy". Most weight loss professionals consider one to two pounds to be a safe amount of weight to drop in one year. It doesn't sound as rapid as the infomercials, does it? By dropping the recommended two pounds per week, a person could theoretically lose over one hundred pounds in one year. That should be more than sufficient for most people, and even you have more than that to lose, one hundred pounds off your back would definitely make a dramatic change in health and appearance.

Was fat loss really ever meant to be easy? Nothing of value comes to you without being earned. Regardless of the hyped marketing and testimonials, fat loss was never meant to be easy, but it doesn't have to be confusing. Take a moment to contrast the words "easy" and "simple". Good diet and physical fitness habits are very simple, but they are still hard to do on a consistent basis.

That's the key to weight loss. It's all about consistency. Running just a little bit faster or lifting just a little more weight is all it takes to make impressive improvements over the long run. Not to be overly pessimistic, but think about when you decided for the very first time that you wanted to lose weight. Consider where you'd be if you lost one pound week per week ever since? Where would be you now? There probably wouldn't be much left.

Congratulations on deciding you are ready to change your life, whether this is your first attempt or not. In order to keep your progress consistent and your results growing, you'll need to find continual motivation. Your new future doesn't start on any specific date, it's the result of specific actions taken today, very literally. Your future isn't what you plan for tomorrow, it's the life you create today.

How can you create an overwhelming abundance of motivation that gives you no choice to succeed? There are a variety of possibilities. In a place you see often, place a picture of a person you believe has an ideal body weight. Maybe even better, post a picture of yourself where you are now, so you can see the difference. Create a "vision board" with pictures of your idea life. Find friends and a support group that are trying to make similar decisions and improvements in their own life.

Finding your ideal weight is worth the hard work. It won't be easy, but the physical, social, and emotional benefits are well worth the effort. Take the first step, build some momentum, and you'll reach your goal in no time.
