Weight Loss Is Simple, But Not Easy

Stepping onto the scaleYou’ve struggled with losing weight.  Looking at all the different diets, exercise programs and equipment.  There are tons of theories and studies that try to tell you what to do and how to do it.

But the fact is that weight loss is really simple.  The problem is that it isn’t easy.

The Instant Society

We live in an instant society.  Our motto is “I want it and I want it now!”  So when we finally come to our senses and decide that we’re going to get slim, healthy and sexy again we look for the instant solution.

You’ll find some snake oil salesmen who will sell you the instant fix, but the solutions either don’t work, don’t last or hurt your health (not to mention your bank balance).

The Plain Truth

The plain truth about losing weight in a healthy manner is that it is not complicated but it does take some effort on your part.  You will have to make multiple changes to your lifestyle to achieve it.  You will need to make sacrifices:

  • you’ll need to change the way you eat and drink
  • you’ll need to adjust how and when you sleep
  • you’ll need to add physical activity (including workouts) to your schedule
  • you’ll need to make time for spiritual refreshment
  • you’ll need to reduce stress

You can make some progress if you change only one area of your life.  But to reach the ultimate goal will require changes in all areas.  Your body is a complex and interconnected system that is constantly in flux while striving to stay in balance.

The Benefits

So, as we said before, it is hard to lose weight in a healthy fashion.  But look at the benefits:

  • more energy
  • stronger body
  • less sickness
  • more focused
  • more attractive
  • balanced, low stress life
  • etc.

I’m sure you’ll agree that the benefits far outweigh the costs.
