One of the hardest things that people need to realize is that it did not happen overnight. It has taken a while to become fat and it will take a while to get rid of it. Losing weight too fast results in excess skin that cannot react to the loss that will lead to medical interventions to correct it.
Understand it takes time to lose weight. A normal weight loss of 1-2 pounds weekly over time will only result in 52 to 104 pounds per year in loss. Excessive weight loss of hundreds of pounds will take a longer time frame than many understand. This leads to frustration and quitting of diet and exercise plans. Do not quit, just adjust your expectations that it will take weeks not days to achieve the body you desire.
Yet, understanding that you are in it for the long haul and you will reach your goals, will help you be more successful. The one day cheats or falling off the wagon is not a reason to throw in the towel and eat the entire bakery daily.
Another event that many do not understand is muscle. Muscle is the item that moves your bones around. The more use the more it improves. The body will begin using the fat to help build muscle. Huge bodies will notice slow changes in about twelve weeks. Areas that were fluffy and soft, may now be more firm and tighter. This is why there is a saying that it may take this long for you to notice and even more time for others to notice the changes in your body. Keep at your routine, diet, and exercise plans.
No, there is no quick way but if you figure you live to be 100 years old, then one year of seriously being mindful of your diet, exercise, and lifestyle to change your look in one year, is indeed, fast. It really comes down to how you want to think about it to achieve your goals.
