Ever start a workout and give up because you don’t see the results you expect in a few weeks? I know the feeling.I It’s tempting.
But remember, you didn’t put on the extra weight in a few weeks, so it’ll take longer than that to lose it. Even if you don’t have a lot to lose, maybe you’re just trying to tone up a bit, it’s going to take a little time. They key is consistency.
In a few weeks, you’re likely to see *some* results yourself. It’ll probably take double that time for other people to notice the difference. And to get to your goal, you’ve got to be in it for the long haul. Often there are body parts that take much longer to respond. But I’m here to tell you that it WILL happen.
Do the right things, eat well (that’s responsible for about 80% of your results!) And get your workouts in. Even on days you’re not really up to it, do something. Shoot for cardio a few days a week and weight/strength training a few days a week and keep going.
To keep your motivation up, try taking measurements before you begin and each week after. Write it down each time. Even try taking pictures every 30 days. When you see numbers going down on the tape measure or changes in your pictures, it can be VERY motivational!
Don’t give up!
