Are your weight loss efforts not getting any results?*
*Weight loss results may vary. This is not a guarantee
Are your weight loss efforts not getting any results? Don’t worry, you are closer than you think, and it is totally NORMAL that nobody notices… YET. 😉
Weight loss is one of those things that when you get started it can take a while before anyone notices.
The first few weeks of weight loss on total food replacement can be challenging, you have to go through carb withdrawals, deal with your emotions without comfort eating, get into ketosis, and get used to saying NO to every single offer of food. All this sacrifice and no one has even noticed or mentioned that you are losing weight.
This is when many people give up.
And the sad thing is, that most people give up just right before the change. Just right before it gets easy, just right before the time they get their first compliment.
We don’t have a crystal ball, but if we did then we would NEVER give up. If we could see how close we are to being at our goal, how close we are to feeling on top of the world, how close we are to fitting into those jeans…. then we would NEVER give up.
We are always so much closer than we think we are.
When I started The New You Plan Total Food Replacement in the New Year, I felt little difference for much of January & February, it is really only this month in March that I am starting to feel better, starting to get into clothes I liked, starting to get compliments ( every time someone sees me now they mention how much better I am looking ). I am so glad I stuck with it, even when it felt impossible. I just kept making the effort every day and now all of a sudden my hard work is paying off. I still have a lot of weight to lose, but I am excited about it, rather than overwhelmed.
If I had of given up at any time in January or February when I didn’t feel my efforts where being noticed, where would I be today??
I would be back to square one. Back to where I started, and feeling overwhelmed, hopeless and pretty much depressed, and wishing so much that I had of kept on putting in the effort.
If you feel like you are putting in all this effort and not seeing the results, that noone is noticing, and that your weight is not coming off fast enough for you, remember that you are so much closer than you think you are to be happy with your results, to getting compliments, to everyone you meet noticing the difference in you.
If you give up…. what is the alternative?
Where will you be in 3 months time if you give up?
Where will you be in 3 months time if you keep putting in many many many tiny efforts?
The difference those tiny efforts make over the space of a few months is ENORMOUS ~ totally transformational. You will be amazed, but if you give up, you won’t get to experience that feeling.
What if you did give up?
What if you gave up last month or the month before? What if you are currently feeling overwhelmed and hopeless about your weight?
If you are reading this and you gave up on your diet, then the first thing to do is to take a deep breath, and just say this time I will do it. This time I will put in many many many tiny efforts, and I KNOW it will go unnoticed for a while, and I will NOT get disheartened, I will NOT feel low, I will dig deep and keep going, because THIS TIME I WILL get to my goal. You will get there, if you do not give up.
It might take 2 months before people start to notice. Mentally prepare yourself for that. But people WILL notice, and you WILL soon start to feel good about yourself.
Rome wasn’t built in a day. You didn’t put on X number of stone in a day either.
So if you feel like giving up DON’T – you are so much closer than you think.
Just keep on putting in many many many tiny efforts, that is all it takes.
“Ordinary things, consistently done, create extraordinary results.”
There is no big secret to weight loss, no big secret to any big achievement, everything in life is simple, it is just a matter of applying basic simple principles every single day on a consistent basis, for days, weeks, months, even years…. if you want something you just have to build up your discipline of doing it everyday, and soon the results will be astounding, and everyone will be asking, “What did you do to achieve this amazing goal??” And you will tell them… “It is easy… you just put in many many many tiny efforts, and don’t give up” x
