I know it can be frustrating that after a month of eating clean, spending hours in the gym and avoiding food temptation you don’t see the scale going down. Before you give up on exercise and declare yourself as someone who “will never lose those pounds”, stop, take a deep breath and think. Maybe you’re still doing some innocent mistakes that hinder your weight loss progress and you don’t even know about. Losing weight isn’t just “calories in minus calories out”. It has also a lot to do with our mood, how we approach to it and our methods. Our daily decisions and our willpower. So instead of giving up, look at your weight loss journal and go through you notes. Maybe you need to watch your carb intake. Maybe you’re under too much stress. You may gain muscle and you don’t know about. So get a body fat percentage test or try measuring your waist, hip, thigh and upper arm. Remember, scale doesn’t tell you the whole story! There is a chance you’re doing too much cardio and not enough strength training. Maybe you haven’t given it enough time. Have in mind that weight loss journey is a lifestyle and you’re in it for the long run.
Weight loss doesn’t happen easily. But if many people have fought the battle and won —you can, too! Just watch what you eat, get enough sleep, be consistent and don’t give up. Slowly but surely, you will get there!
Wishing you a rosy day! 🙂
