Is consistent weight loss something what you are looking for? Have you ever gained weight after losing it?
If you have done so, I can understand your frustration completely.
It’s not great when your suit doesn’t fit well, or your dress shows your gains. So what is the solution? I can already tell you that it’s not changing your wardrobe.
Changing your lifestyle is the answer.
Consistent weight loss requires consistent action. It’s that simple, but still, many of you may struggle with losing that excess of weight once for all.
In this short article, I am going to present the solution that worked for my clients. I hope that they will work for you too.
CONSISTENT WEIGHT LOSS HABITS
MAKE TIME FOR ACTIVITY
I don’t have time to exercise. I hear it very often. Funny excuse.
I trained single moms who could cook, clean the house, drive kids to school, and read carefully: run ultramarathons.
It’s a matter of choice. If you need to sacrifice something to make time for activity – do it.
DON’T BUY CRAP
If you store junk food in your fridge, there are high chances that you will binge on it one day.
You should create a friendly environment for weight loss rather than making it more difficult. Creating temptation around you is maybe the right way to test your will power, but much safer is to don’t buy junk. Period.
CHOOSE ACTIVITY YOU LOVE
If you like nordic walking- go for it. You should do what makes you happy. Very often, I hear from people ” I hate that treadmill” Do you think it is sustainable to do often something that you hate?
Pick up something which empowers you, release endorphins rather than makes you tired. With this in mind, you will be looking forward with enthusiasm to your next workout.
LIMIT DISTRACTIONS DURING TRAINING
Being present is super essential when it comes to results. Have you ever heard of mind-muscle connection? Your body is wired with neurons. They are all connected. The more you focus on your body in a particular moment, the more neurons you are activating. More neurons activated equals more muscle fibers involved.
Remember about it and give 100 % of your attention during the training. Don’t think what’s after or before. Think what’s now.
DO IT FOR YOURSELF, NOT OTHERS
What’s your reason to lose weight?
Many people want to lose weight because:
- wedding is coming up, and they want to look ”good.”
- the neighbor lost weight, so they have to do so
- they feel guilty after Christmas
- wife/husband is forcing them
- they want to look great on the beach!
I love the last one, especially!
Let me tell you something. You may have lots of reasons like I mentioned above, but they are shallow. They will come and go, and the same will be with your motivation. It will come and go. Therefore results too, will come and go.
If you want to lose weight for good, you need to do it for yourself.
- To become a healthier version of you and enjoy life better.
- Be able to do activities you love, to travel, hike, swim, ski, explore and live a longer, healthier life.
- To play with your children, grand-kids, and enjoy agility as long as you can
HIRE A COACH
Some people are not confident in long term weight loss attempts. One of the main reasons people fluctuate between progress and bloating is a lack of confidence in the plan.
They may start well, but then they don’t see results, therefore lose enthusiasm, and finally quit to indulge in food, drinks, and leisure.
For many people, the right idea is to have someone who can guide them through the process. Even sometimes, a consultation once a month is a good idea to keep you going and see satisfying results.
Let’s say you committed and took steps accordingly:
- made time for your workouts in a distraction-free environment.
- didn’t buy crap, but your fridge is stocked with vegetables, fruits, and good quality protein sources.
- have signed up for your favorite classes to the nearest fitness club or online studio.
- tracked your progress with the coach.
Then one day, you stop everything and guess what.
- Your metabolism starts slowing down.
- Good hormones reduce.
- Frustration raises.
- Muscle mass decreases.
- Body fat percentage increases.
- You come back to the point where you started.
Maybe richer in knowledge and experience, but you come back so keep that in mind that you need to keep doing what you have to do to maintain results.
