The weight loss journey can be frustratingly slow at times. Far too often, this causes people to become discouraged and give up. Don’t be one of those people! Keep in mind the big picture, the long game, your end goal. Losing only half a pound a week may seem worthless, but over the course of a year, that’s about 25 pounds which is a significant feat!
The same is true for exercise. It can be really hard being a beginner. Maybe you can only run for 15 seconds at a time, or only lift the five pound dumbbells, or have to do the easy modifications of yoga poses because you’re just not there yet. THAT’S OKAY!
With patience and perseverance, you’ll soon be able to run a little longer and farther, lift a little ore, and stretch a bit further. Likewise, the weight will start dropping off, little by little. Don’t give up on yourself!
