Losing weight seems like an impossible task that causes so many people to give up. The process of losing weight isn't easy, but it is very doable. Often times, people go hard trying to get fit and stay in shape for a week and then the momentum just fizzles out and the desired results come to a halt.
The "secret" to losing weight is just consistency.
Start out by going to the gym, even if it's just once or twice a week. Once you get that down, you can push up to three days and then so on. The trick is not to stop. Even though you might be tired after school or work just push yourself to work out and you will feel better after I promise. Once you start to build up that consistency you will, in fact, notice changes and your pants might just fit a little bit better!
Not only is consistency imperative to seeing results but so is how you eat. The saying goes "you are what you eat" and as cliche as it may seem, it is true. It is important to eat healthy so you can be healthy. Really committing to eating better is the key to success. You can work out as much as humanly possible, but none of that will make a difference if you just come home and eat junk food. I'm not saying that a cheat day every so often is out of the picture because our bodies need a cheat day every so often to help keep your metabolism in check.
Eating right is such a crucial ingredient for losing weight.
But keep in mind, food should never be something you stop eating. All those fad diets that celebrities rave about don't work — in fact, they cause more harm than good because oftentimes you force your body to cut out healthy fats and energy sources. Plus, once you finish one of those fad diets and go back to eating normal, you gain the weight back faster. Just simply manage food portions and when faced with options choose the healthier ones.
Staying active also helps keep weight down. If you are sitting on the couch all day you won't see lots of substantial results because you aren't doing anything, but if you go out and take a walk or do some chores or even play with your pet your body is able to burn calories and essentially lose weight. The secret to maintaining weight is to not eat more calories than you burn off.
Weight loss is really quite simple — it just takes commitment and determination. Results won't come after two weeks, but results will come, just give it time.
Everyone's body is different and will progress differently than others so don't compare yourself to other people, compare yourself to yourself and see your personal improvements.
