If you are overweight, you can experience weight loss success and share your own weight loss journey in the near future.
Weight loss is possible, but only if you know it is a journey, not an overnight transformation.
Too many people believe that a weight loss will happen quickly with a magic pill or a six week diet. They want a way to lose weight in a way that does not involve a change to their overall lifestyle. They want the “magic pill” or a short diet to do the work of eliminating excess fat on their body. This is why we see so many miracle weight loss pills and diet books on the market.
There is no magic to weight loss. No magic wand; no fairy dust. It is a life-long journey.
The 70% Solution
Because 70% of Americans are overweight, the weight loss industry is a huge and profitable enterprise. According to the research organization Marketdata Enterprises which specializes in tracking niche industries, Americans spend more than $60 billion annually in an effort to lose weight.
Many people join gyms to lose weight and get in shape. Nearly $23 billion is spent by 55 million Americans on gym memberships. If going to the gym does not seem to produce immediate results, the motivation to exercise often dwindles. So, while the average gym membership costs $58 per month, only 18% of members use the gym consistently.
Diets May Lower Your Metabolism
Practically everyone who wants to lose weight has tried dieting. It is estimated that 45 million Americans start a diet each year. And many of these people will buy diet book to guide them.
Many diets have you eliminate healthy foods and so provide poor nutrition. While most diets do help you lose fat, you also lose muscle mass at the same time.
Loss of muscle reduces your metabolism and is a major problem with diets. This causes your body to burn fewer calories after your diet than before you started your diet. And, most people put more weight back on after they go off their diet, making matters worse.
Weight Loss Journey
But, temporary diets, diet pills or good intentions for exercise are not the answer to our overweight crisis. It took years living an unhealthy lifestyle to put on too much weight. It was a lifestyle that put on the weight. It’s going to be a new and better lifestyle that will take off the weight and keep it off.
That new lifestyle will include consistently getting good nutrition, eating healthy foods, and getting enough rest and exercise.
Here is a beautifully inspiring weight loss video about one person who took that journey and succeeded.
