The Big Fat Lies about Weight Loss
The truth about weight loss is that anyone can lose weight. The truth behind the truth is that how long one can sustain the weight loss and keep it off.
The real-person testimonials in product and program advertisements are indeed powerful and inspiring. However, most show only the before and after pictures. They rarely show what happens to the subject or model after 3 or 5 years. In addition, read the fine prints at the bottom. It typically reads,"xxxx's results are not typical." What a bummer!
This is the time frame for long-term adherence of a successul weight management program including healthy lifestyle change, regular strength training and cardio exercise, and proper nutrition plan.
Many people are so fired up after New Year that could actually serve them no good. They start strong and begin to wane after a few weeks. It is how strong you finish it that matters.
Here are 3 motivation boosters that will help you put things in perspective when you're stuck.
1. Be realistic. Dreaming about the body of your dreams is exciting. Dreaming without a realistic plan is fantasy. Compare only to yourself, not the celebrities or models.
2. Shift your focus. Women, in particularly, are constantly on the diet. It's the most guarded open secret in the company cafeteria. Foods and dieting cracks are the gossips of the queen. Divert your attention in foods for losing weight to the good cause of staying healthy for youself and for your family.
3. Treat yourself. Allow your favorite treats in small portion so that you don't feel deprived. Otherwise, you may binge whenever you get a chance.
Don't lie to yourself. Be truthful to yourself about weight loss.
