How To Lose Weight Effectively
Jenny Craig, Richard Simmons, and now the newly acclaimed Shawn T. We are all quite
familiar with these names. In fact, all these people can be compounded into one simple word:
fitness. When we think about fitness, we associate it with being healthy and as some would say,
“having that perfect beach body.” Nowadays, people want to lose weight, be fit, and have a
“beach body” without undergoing a process. However, the cruel reality is that losing weight
effectively is a process that requires commitment.
It is vital to remember that before beginning any type of intense training or diet, the very
first step is to be realistic. As said before, change is a process which will not simply happen from
one day to another. By setting a reasonable and realistic goal one can build motivation which will
eventually lead up to the bigger goal. An example of this would be, Establishing smaller goals
allows for small yet effective changes to begin.
Once a reasonable goal has been established, the following step is to fully commit to the
process. One of the major problems and misconceptions of today is that people want quick
results without putting forth an effort. Thus, creating a mental block that leads to excuses and
from excuses lead to a loss of motivation. Without motivation, nothing is possible. Staying
motivated is a great part of losing weight. Another part of the process of losing weight is
patience. Patience is key. From the moment the process begins, it is essential to understand that
losing weight will take time. Pamela described this process in her book titled, Fit to Live, like
this: “Cut the mental fat and that will lead to cutting the waistline fat.” Surpassing all types of
personal obstacles is crucial before beginning any process, not just in losing weight. In this case,
patience is a major obstacle.
