What can you expect from your journey to weight loss?
A lot of things! Here are nine things you may or may not have thought about before starting.
1) You’ll need willpower, and a lot of it. Understanding why you want to lose weight will help with this.
2) Some people have an easier time than others when it comes to weight loss. If it’s a struggle for you, don’t give up!
3) Weight loss might mean changing some lifestyle habits. Don’t be surprised if this means giving up some of your favorite foods, taking more steps per day, or even sleeping less sometimes.
4) You’ll see mixed results; most people lose a few pounds at first, but then plateau. This is a normal weight loss plateau.
5) Weight loss isn’t a linear process. Expect some ups and downs along the way, including losing weight…and then gaining a little back.
6) It’s important to stay on track when you’re trying to lose weight, but it’s okay if you slip up sometimes. What matters more than anything is getting back on track!
7) You’re going to get frustrated. Keeping a positive attitude and focusing on your end goal will help you stick with it until you reach that weight loss goal of yours.
8) It’s okay if your friends don’t support your journey. The people who matter most already do, so love the ones close to you and don’t let other people’s negativity drag you down.
9) You will reach your goal weight! Whether it takes a month or longer, having persistence is key to success on your weight loss journey.
Patience is key when it comes to weight loss. It can take a little while for your body to adjust and lose the excess pounds you’ve put on over time. If you’re looking for quick results, there are other options like fad diets or even surgery that may work better for you in the short run than changing your lifestyle habits.
But if you want a long-term solution, then patience will be necessary as well as sticking with healthier choices and regular exercise. From making small adjustments at first to getting more active eventually, these ideas should help ease some of those frustrations about weight loss and make this journey seem less daunting!
