When you begin a diet, weight loss journey, healthy lifestyle, whatever you want to call it, one of the biggest reasons we don’t last long is because we don’t see results quickly enough. You have worked hard for a week, why hasn’t your muffin top disappeared and why do you still have bingo wings I say to myself. But the hard truth is that it takes a little while before you will see any physical changes of a weight loss journey – if you are doing it the sensible way (no crash diets or extreme treatments)
So here is what you should aim for:
4 weeks – YOU can start to see the changes in your body (things look slimmer/more toned/less wobbly)
8 weeks – YOUR FRIENDS will start to notice the changes
12 weeks – THE REST OF THE WORLD will recognize the results of all your hard work
So don’t give up after 1 or 2 weeks. After 4 weeks you will feel more inspired to carry on as you see the positive effects all of the healthy food and exercise is having on your body. Compliments from friends and family will spur you on after 8 weeks, and then at 12 weeks, you will never want to quit because everyone will appreciate your banging body, most importantly YOU!
