Very good advice on losing weight slowly – it’s a marathon not a sprint. Best not to get impatient and keep the end goal in sight. Good work!
Thanks Debs glad you found this helpful, its important to stay focused and accept there will be set backs along the way I tell my coaching clients the slower it comes off the longer its stays off. Thanks for sharing!
To many people want results now and it just doesn’t happen that way. People don’t pack on the pounds overnight so they shouldn’t expect the weight to come off so quickly. Our health is the main concern and we should keep that in consideration when we are trying to change our bodies.
Agreed, focus on being healthy and happy and accepting yourself are the first steps. Our emotions can get “Hijacked” leaving us feeling disappointed and disheartened. Looking for the quick fix often makes things more difficult. Great comment Kelly thanks for sharing!
Never thought about this way before, but it makes a lot of sense and I like it. Great concept!
Thanks Maddie good to hear you found this helpful!
This is a really good video full of great advice to lose weight. I have had a hard time losing weight in the long term for a while. I would always chose a diet that would make me lose weight fast and gain the weight back (and more). But when I decided to be a healthy vegan, the weight just came off easily and effortlessly at a slow but steady pace. I’m not on a diet or temporary quick fix, it’s a lifestyle and to me it made a whole lot of a difference.
It’s important to understand the power of making lifestyle change, more accurately its a commitment to better health. Every successful person who i have coached always at some point make the shift in thinking to leading a healthy lifestyle. Quite often these same people have been on the yo yo diet cycle of up and down weight for many many years. It’s great to hear about the life changing results we can all experience. Thanks for Sharing Lilly!
As Lily stated, once you make up your mind, it DOES become a lifestyle….but you have to remember, consistency is the key here. And as Debs stated, it’s a marathon, not a sprint. Keep doing it, you’ll reach your goals in no time!
That’t the challenge to change your mindset and beliefs around whats possible. Thanks for sharing Piper!
Very informative video. It’s so important to loose weight slowly. It’s a much healthier way to do it but it takes a commitment. I used to gain and loose the same 10 lbs over and over again. I never understood that I needed to change how I was thinking about weight loss and make more subtle changes to my diet.
This is a very common situation yo yo dieting and rebound weight gain. The only way to stop it is to get off the yo yo diet roller coaster and start being consistent with all areas of lifestyle. Its the only way, create the right habits and you are there.
I know you’re right but I get so impatient trying to lose 5 to 15 pounds. Fad diets are so tempting because they work fast and you always tell yourself you’ll be able to keep it off. Never quite works out! Thanks for the vid – inspiring, actually.
Thats how the Fad diets get you, they do work for losing weight quickly, but the rebound weight gain once you stop is often just as quick. Plus you will generally put on a little be extra, and your metabolism will become slower and slower over time. It’s important to resist the urge, otherwise you’ll suffer in the long run.
I’m especially trying to remember that after the holidays. There is just too much temping goodies to resist. I am not over doing it too much, but I like to start fresh for the new year. I just saw several “lose weight after the holidays with this easy diet” type covers on the magazines at the checkout counter. I just kept walking!
It’s so true. We don’t gain all the weight instantly, so of course it takes a while to lose it. I definitely think you’re have to make subtle changes in your life style and diet and choose things you can stick with. I found it easier to keep the weight off by swapping out my food choices a few at a time until I was eating healthier and didn’t miss the junk food. I slowly started eating less calories without feeling like I was eating less food.
Good point Kim, I too recommend small changes at the start as its more important to do the right things when we first start off. Like cutting out junk food. Cutting out sugar, drinking more water and sleeping 8 hours every night. Even these small changes initially can give you a great weight loss jump start and should be the day to day practice and habits to follow. Thanks for sharing!
So perfect! This is exactly what I needed to watch. Thanks for your advice, I found it extremely helpful.
Glad you found it helpful!
Hi Chris, I was watching the latest video you emailed me but it froze at the four minute mark so couldn’t watch the remainder
Hi try this link its the same video but on you tube let me know if it works for you https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E8cjs-uvbK4
these clips are very useful.
I hope to get my eating plan together this week end
I need to just consider it as a lifestyle change. It is easy like you have said to stick to healthy eating for a week or 2 as soon as I have even just lapsed one day it becomes lost.
