In this day and age of fast food, super information at our fingertips and media overload, we have become a society of instant gratification seekers. Nobody has the time or patience any more to "wait and see", we want our results now. The only problem with that is we often have to do things over and over, and end up paying twice as much.
When it comes to our health and diet, most people like to have it done for them, need to lose weight? Just take a pill or order food and have it delivered. The only problem here is that when you stop paying for it, and the program is over, the weight comes back.
If we would just take the time to learn the proper way to lose the weight, change our way of thinking, and change the way we buy and prepare food altogether, the weight will stay off.
Lose the excess weight and keep it off.
That extra weight on your body didn't get there overnight, so you shouldn't expect it to disappear overnight either. If you want your body to remain healthy, then proper weight loss should be ongoing and slow enough for your body's system's to get use to it.
You need to change the way you think.
Old habits die hard, it takes courage to break free from those old patterns and move forward. However, it is important to do so in order to make permanent changes.
Do some research
Every single day, folks like me and you are working toward changing their lives. Some will succeed because they are focused and have the drive and determination to do so. Many of them are willing to share their success stories as well as the "how" of it. There are many different ways, some will suit your needs and lifestyle, some will not - this is something you will need to determine as you go.
I have tried to make it easier.
I have compiled a list of resources for you to browse at your convenience, these are people who have had the success that you seek and have documented their formula for you to use. There are many in the list because we are all unique individuals who have different body types and requirements.
There will very likely be some setbacks, but these are only small bumps in the road to success. Don't let obstacles bar your way, just keep going and use them as lessons, they will make you stronger and wiser. When you look at the big picture, they are just tiny blips that are barely visible on the whole radar screen.
The time is now, you know you need to change and you want to be healthy and happy for the rest of your life, so don't keep putting it off...make that move break that old way of thinking that has kept you from who you want to be. Just go for it.
