Hi Everyone! It's spring at last! Here are my thoughts on weight loss and fitness progression. The BARE MINIMUM amount of time to see changes in your weight and strength and inches lost (change in body fat composition - more lean toned muscle and reduction in body fat) is a timeframe of 4 to 6 weeks. Why do so many women barely get to that timeframe before getting frustrated and quitting, just before they start to reap the benefits of all their hard work? I have to keep telling my clients " If your goal is to lose 30 (or up to 100 pounds), then it isnt going to happen overnight...it isn't going to happen in just a couple of weeks. This is a lifestyle change, a long term progression in the works...NOT a quick fix. Kermit the Frog was once quoted as saying, "It is not easy being green". We fit humans, who make eating healthy and working out a part of our daily lives say the same thing, "It ain't easy being lean". It does take work, committment, and time...its easy, but not simple. You have to have your WHY....in order to keep you going. You will have to sweat..you will have to shift your ass into gear, you will have to work through some discomfort. You will have to focus on the work of creating a more fit, leaner physique, which takes time (not a week or two). You can't show up to your trainer with your fast food breakfast sandwich on hand (i have had that happen!) and expect to come out 3 weeks later looking "buff". It's just not realistic....committ to yourself and your health and fitness goals. Seriously, if you keep putting other people first, and neglecting yourself, it will eventually boomerang on you. For if you don't have your health, you won't be able to take care of anyone else...they will have to take care of you. Melanie's words of the day....can you put a pricetag on your health and fitness level...if you want to live a long, excellent quality of life? Not to me, its priceless to me...and it should be to you. Happy spring! get off the couch & lets MOVE!!!
