Yes! I am determined to cover all lame excuses I have heard (or have used myself)
- Diets make me hungry.
If your diet is making you hungry, it’s not a good diet or even sustainable in the long term. Don’t go for any fancy (or trending) diet plans, fancier the name of the diet the crappier that it is – our body needs everything – carbs, proteins and whatnot – all in moderation, don’t cut back on anything. Do watch your portion size and eat healthy, simple food – healthy does NOT mean just organic or raw food.
- Exercise makes me too tired.
No kidding! That is why they call it a workout! Jokes aside, exercise generates energy. The more energy you have, the more you will get done every day.
I generally workout in the morning but if for some reason I don’t, and have to workout in the evening, that is after a long day at work – then I do not feel like moving even a limb. But I still put on my shoes and do what I am supposed to, 5 minutes through the workout I start feeling charged.
You recharge your body through food, sleep, and exercise. Movement creates energy. It gets your heart pumping, blood pumping, cleans out toxins, and gets your engine started. Exercise helps you lose weight, makes your skin glow and gets confidence levels up so you feel better about yourself.
- I always gain back the weight.
When I decided to lose weight and make changes to my lifestyle there were months in a row I didn’t lose even a single pound and there were some months when I put on weight instead of losing. Losing weight isn’t a crash course, if you don’t see instant results then don’t give up, there needs to be patience and most of all continuity (for life).
I told someone to try yoga, she came back to me and said ‘I tried it for 3 whole weeks and didn’t lose even a pound’. Isn’t 3 weeks too less? considering you have taken years to ruin your body?… give it time… Rome wasn’t built in one day … it would be a long journey but it would be worth it. Don’t do it to be thin, do it for a better quality of life.
One needs to change their lifestyle for good to lose weight otherwise if you resume unhealthy ways once losing weight then obviously you will be putting on the weight again.
