You’ve been busting your butt, eating all the right foods, working out 5 times a week for what seems like months and you hardly see an improvement. You’re feeling discouraged, defeated and exhausted (both mentally and physically) and you’re ready to throw in the towel. Struggling to lose those extra pounds seems to be a constant, uphill battle within yourself; however, this is the harsh reality of being on a weight loss journey.
You can have all the trainers in the world telling you what to do, all the nutritionists telling you what to eat, and all the support from close friends and family. But, it’s up to you to make the change. It’s up to you to want to lose the weight. And, it’s up to you to stay motivated enough to see results.
A lot of patience is required when you’re on a weight loss journey. Okay, I drank a kale smoothie and ate a quinoa salad with no dressing for lunch, so why didn’t I lose 3 pounds? I cannot stress this enough. Be patient! There’s a reason why patience is a virtue because the end results will be worth it.
