Beth just passed the 30 pound weight loss mark! Boom!
Give her some hi fives in the comments below.
In this post I’d like to cover instant gratification. We live in a world where we want things to happen, now! Getting really great, fast results is awesome, but most of the time when that happens you don’t know exactly why. Fast results are also harder to sustain for the long run.
What we have Beth doing is a lifestyle change.
She not on a fad diet, or workout program. What she is doing now is sustainable for her whole life. And she’s going to continue to get steady, and consistent results. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if her results start to come faster. Sounds backwards, right? Well, she’s taught her body how to burn body fat as fuel. So, as we ramp up the difficulty of her workouts, that fat is going to fly off. Pretty awesome!
What I’d like you to get from this post is, when you start a diet, or new workout… ask yourself, is this sustainable for the long haul?
If your new program is going to throw you into that yo-yo of lose/gain/lose/gain… then don’t even start.
I see so many people that start low carb diets, and they take them to the extreme by not eating enough veggies or fat (yes fat is good for you). They lose a bunch of weight due to the lower calories, and then go on a binge. Then the diet is gone, and the weight is back. Don’t let this be you. If you need help, ask me, and I’ll point you in the right direction.
