Have you ever had a hard time with a diet?
Let’s just say you are physically not happy with yourself, so what’s the first thing you think of?
“I need to diet!” “I need to lose weight!” “I need to get skinny!”
Girl, of course they do! Why do those phrases sound familiar? Because every single one of use women on this god’s green earth, have spoke those same exact words when we were not happy with where we were physically.
So we decide to make a change.
But what comes with this change?
99% of the time it’s something drastic… like a complete overhaul! You have to start counting calories, macros, fats, make sure you are eating between this time and this time, and don’t eat this and don’t eat that. Or you resort to something even worse, popping pills, sticking on patches or drinking all your meals!
Usually when we make this change, we are hoping for quick results.
“I want to lose 20lbs in a week!”
Um…. sorry girlfriend, that’s not gonna happen!
There is no such thing as losing weight fast, and it being 1. healthy for you, and 2. being something that you can maintain.
Don’t worry, I am not judging you if you have succumbed to one of those trends, I mean girl, I have done my fair share of garage diets to try and lose weight….
Hydroxycut, Medi Fast, Atkins or fancier term….. South Beach Diet, Intermitted fasting, Carb Cycling, you name it…
and every single one of those i failed at and THANK SWEET BABY JESUS that I did! You know why, because those are not ways of living!
You are suffering, you are abiding by some instructions and some rules that DO NOT FIT WITH YOUR LIFESTYLE! And what is worse, some people end up trying to change their lifestyle in order to stick with these fads….
Then they get fed up, depressed, shits not working, or I am gaining weight back twice as fast as I lost it, and guess what….
YOU ARE NOT HAPPY!
Truth is, there is all types of advice online, social media is blowing up with all these diets, quick fixes, cleanses, etc that tell you that you can drop this much weight in this amount of time… but what they don’t tell you is everything that comes with it.
Unnatural supplements, shakes, patches, pills, foods, etc…. ARE NOT GOOD FOR YOU! While you are trying to lose weight and you are putting horrible substances in your body, yes you could lose weight, but as you doing more damage than good inside? And how are you truly feeling on the outside?
If I can give you one piece of advice and something that I hope you listen to, is always listen to your body! If something doesn’t feel right (like heart palpitations, over exhaustion, starvation, etc) that means DROP THAT DIET LIKE A BAD HABIT!
Here are a few things that you can do instead
- Add more veggies. Don’t focus on cutting sugars, carbs, caffeine, etc. Focus on adding more good stuff in. Then you won’t feel like you are depriving yourself and you are getting full of the good stuff and won’t want to eat junk.
- Realize that it’s a lifestyle change. If you want true happiness and health and have a body that you always wanted, realize it’s not going to happen over night, it’s not going to be an easy journey, and that you need to celebrate every small success from choosing broccoli over breadsticks to dropping a pant size. TREAT YOURSELF!
- Last but not least. Love yourself as you are NOW! Know that you are worth a battle, you are worth the investment of time and energy that it takes to make healthy changes. Know your worth and that you deserve to feel good NOW while working towards where you want to be!
