(BlackFitness101.com) Weight loss is difficult challenge that, if accomplished, can better one’s health and quality of living. It is a task that tries the patience. Let’s be honest no one really wants to lose weight over time. We want to get the weight off as quickly as possible. We want to eat right and workout for a week or two and get on a scale to see substantial loss that will motivate us to continue. What is missing from this picture is simple, weight is often not gained overnight so losing it will take time.

Your results might start with seeing your close begin to fit looser. This might not be the number of pounds lost you want to see in a week, but it’s still progress and that should be considered as motivation. Many of us know weight loss will require consistency and disciple. We are ready to admit these two characteristics are what we accustomed to seeing as a necessity, but endurance is just as important.

Endurance is vital for weight loss. There will be days you’ll want to throw in the towel. You’ll be wondering if you should throw in the towelblackwoman-WEIGHTLOSS-exercising2021 because it appears as though the weight isn’t falling off. Endurance is what reminds us that it’s a journey not a sprint. It is a reminder that it is important to be kind to yourself. Remember your new eating lifestyle is centered around health, and the benefits of exercise is much more than just weight loss. As you are waiting on the manifestation of melting pounds remember your body as a whole, is getting much needed movement and nutrients it needs to function well overall.

Sometimes what appears as a lack of results could be due to medical challenges, changes in work and home life, or it could be that your body takes longer to adjust to the changes that are being made. This is where patience is greatly needed. Don’t give up on your weight loss goals, consider your reasoning and mind set. If you have a moment whereby you miss some workouts or fall off your eating regimen try not to beat yourself up. If you end up under the weather or injured take the time you need to get well. I know this might seem like a setback but remember this is more of a marathon…not a sprint.

When you only focus on the loss you can lose sight of overall wellness which can make you feel worse then the scale appears stagnant. Weight loss is a journey I have been on for a very long time. I understand the want for results, and the discouragement that comes with not seeing them at once…or seeing less over time. However, I’ve had to tell myself this is my year, and I want to be the best version of myself. I’m no longer seeking this goal for any other reason that to be healthy, and it is a part of overall wellness. I know there will be challenges, but I can reach my goals if I actively love on myself in the kitchen, and the gym, and throughout the day. You can meet your weight loss goals. If you aren’t happy about the rate of results talk to your doctor or trainer to make sure you are on the right track. Once you are assured…trust the process and run your race.
