Weight loss requires lifetime commitment if you want to be successful. It’s a given that weight management afterwards needs the same focus as when you were still in weight loss mode. The importance of maintaining our new found nutritional and fitness habits will remain just as important twenty years after hitting your goal weight. There is no significant difference in your needs from the first day you began your weight loss journey. You can never again let your guard down when it comes to weight management.
My lifestyle is no different at a low body fat percentage as from when I began losing weight. I still weigh, measure and track everything I consume each day. The only difference today is my body requires fewer calories to maintain my weight than it did when I was significantly heavier. I am not a naturally lean individual, nor do I have a high metabolism. My commitment level to maintaining a fit and trim body can never waiver, and I accept this as my reality. My weight loss requires commitment for the rest of my life to remain healthy over my advancing years.
When we do not manage our diet, we can become over weight pretty quickly. But the reality is most people have been adding girth to their bodies for several years before attempting to lose weight. Each January, we can watch as commercial gyms are packed full of the New Years resolution crowd, By this time in February, those crowds will have dwindled down significantly. By March, they will have almost disappeared completely. This is a hard truth for all to learn.
Why is it so hard to lose weight?
I believe most people do not understand the level of commitment weight loss and weight management require. Getting through cravings for high carb foods take time to get over when you quit eating them. Most people refuse to give up sugar and will never get over their carb cravings. A majority of people will not dedicate time for regular exercise.
Weight management requires commitment!
There is no getting around the commitment required for losing weight, and then managing it afterwards. When you are carb addicted, you just have to accept that you always will be carb addicted. As with any addiction, this requires that you never partake again, lest you fall completely off the wagon.
Weight loss requires commitment!
People often lament they do not have time for exercise. They will say they are too busy to take the time to weigh, measure and track the foods they consume. Yet, they will find the time to go to a fast food drive through. They will find the time to visit their doctor for ailments that are preventable through good nutrition and regular exercise. We often hear from some of our readers that they are not capable of losing weight. The truth is, everyone can lose weight. It is truly a matter of how committed you are to do so.
Even if you are more prone to being over weight than others. Weight loss and weight management requires lifetime commitment to doing things you might not really want to do. And that is just a reality we all have to face when we begin a weight loss journey. There are no exceptions my friends.
You are worth the commitment required!
