Thankfully we are not all the same. Each one of us have our own unique gifts, qualities, genetic traits, tastes, skin tones, accents, and other features that makes us individuals. The same is true for our fitness levels, weight loss issues, and overall health status. A common barrier to achieving optimal wellness is the belief that someone else is the same as you. We all have different chemical makeups, strengths, hormone levels and other traits that make us different, especially when it comes to weight loss. Some people “can eat anything” and never gain weight; some can lose weight faster than others despite what feels like a greater effort, and still more never have to exercise and still look great. What gives? Comparing yourself to others and feeling as though you have received an “unfair hand” from the “weight loss Gods” is a fast recipe for failure. It is NEVER you versus them. It is only YOU VERSUS YOU!
See the little changes as they occur.
With the latest reality show or weight loss infomercial touting super-fast ways to lose weight, many people who believe these “get fit quick schemes” look for the fastest and easiest weight loss methods. With television shows displaying dramatic weight loss episodes of people losing as much as 20 pounds in a seven day period, many in the real world believe this is possible for them. But usually it is not realistic for someone who does not live on a wellness ranch or have the time to devote to several hours of exercise per day. Most of us have families or significant others, full time jobs or go to school.. Additionally, it is generally not safe to lose weight too fast and in most cases the weight loss does not last for the long term. So it is a VERY WISE practice to pay attention to every little change that occurs. The successful person with significant and permanent weight loss will notice changes in strength whether it is in a workout or walking through the mall. As you modify your behaviors and begin this journey of wellness transformation, PLEASE notice the small changes from the way your pants fit to climbing the stairs to your increased energy level throughout the day. Remember where you are starting; some of the difficulties you’re having, the pain, tight clothes, fatigue and other symptoms that have led you on this mission to gain better health.
It is easy to get caught up in the belief that if they do it on TV or if someone else can eat any and all foods without gaining weight then you can too. Compare yourself only to yourself. Keep trying to achieve the wellness and well being that you are capable of and deserve. NEVER GIVE UP resilient. BE YOUR OWN MIRACLE!
