Miracle Weight Loss Results Do Not Exist. It takes time and hard work to lose weight, build muscle, and get the dream body you want. The health industry markets hundreds of thousands of pills, herbs, and supplements that make us believe we can lose weight faster by just taking that pill, drinking that shake, or sprinkling that powder. But when you read the fine print, it has an asterisk that says, “with proper diet and exercise.”
And guess what? It’s NOT the pill/supplement that you’re taking that is making you lose weight. It IS the diet and exercise you started! I admit, I’ll be honest. I’ve had weight issues my whole life. But the real way to lose weight and get fit is HARD- FREAKIN’- WORK!
I’ve done P90x, Insanity, Personal Training, Dance, TRX, Yoga, Kettle-bells, Spartacus, Kickboxing, HIIT, and so on. Exercise was my passion long before it was my job.
Guess what works the best? Eating fewer calories and working harder at the exercise. Choose which ever one you like, and do it to the max. For weight loss purposes, the higher the heart rate, the more calories you burn. Most of the time this is cardio-related, but you can turn weight-lifting into interval training and get the same calorie burn. Choose what interests you, is fun, and is exciting. Choose an exercise that you can look forward to, smile about, talk about, and share.
Some people are Yogis, kick-boxers, dancers, cross-fitters, and so on. They choose what they love, they do it almost daily, and they invite their friends and family.
Right now, my personal joy is weight lifting combined with some interval cardio. On rest days, I dance like nobody is watching. What type of exercise excites you? How often would you do it?
Are you trying to lose weight right now? Fitness and health is a lifestyle, not a destination. If you seriously want to look good, reduce risk of disease and illness, and live longer and happier, you need to change your mind about food. You need to change your outlook on life and your emotional connection with food. You became overweight for a reason. Find that reason and address it. Fix your mind, your psyche, and gain some courage to become the person you’ve always wanted.
You know, that person who gives more, works harder, smiles often, and laughs daily; that person you admire and say, “I wish I had that life.” Make that your life. Change your life today for all the tomorrows.
