Every person has the ability to reach a healthy weight.
Because every “body" is unique, each person’s weight loss (or weight gain) experience may vary. Your progress can depend on many factors such as food sensitivities, nutrition history, genetics, health condition, fitness level, frequency and intensity of exercise and activities, and overall lifestyle habits.
Despite your efforts, your progress is not necessarily going to be the same from week to week. You may lose weight, remain the same or even gain. This is NOT a bad thing at all. It’s just the way the body works.
The KEY is to stay on track and DON’T yo-yo — don’t go back-and-forth on your efforts to achieve your healthy weight.
Practice patience. Give your body a chance to settle into your new habits. Allow your body the time it needs to response and it will eventually pay off. In due course, a well-nurtured body will eventually find its healthy weight.
Here is an example of 2 of my clients who took the slow and steady approach to weight loss, training 2-3 times a week and eating proper, balanced meals while also enjoying (in moderation) their “cheat" meals and dining-out experience few times a week or so.
The slow and steady approach still gets you results. But if you have it in you to double your training efforts and lessen the “cheat” meals, you can experience results sooner.
Bottom line, there is more than one way to achieve your weight loss goals. So choose the method that works best for you! The KEY is to stick to your plan. Be consistent. Follow through. ;)
