19 Things Anyone Who Is Trying To Lose Weight Understands
We can relate to a few of these! Can you?
As soon as you decide to diet everyone wants to invite you out to eat.
Sometimes you take calorie counting too far and eventually give up.
You have that one designated friend who will not allow you to skip the gym.
Or in your case, you're trying to get your friend to go to the gym with you...
... and they keep dodging your calls and text.
Sometimes you're the person who is supporting your best friend by dieting with them.
With your job, working out is almost impossible.
You work full time and have little time to rest.
The scale is your worst enemy!
You know not to weigh yourself too often, but instead measure yourself every now and then.
Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day.
Even if you don't have time, you know you have to make time to eat a nice breakfast. It really energizes you and helps you feel like you're on the right track.
Even though it's hard, you know you can't model your workout progress after someone else's.
Everyone's body is different and you have to make your OWN path to your OWN body goal.
Every now and then you get a little discouraged.
Which isn't uncommon or strange, just don't let your temporary lack of results keep you down. :)
Moderation is key - ceasing everything cold turkey isn't.
If you eat out everyday, cut it down to once every 2 weeks. Instead of trying to go the gym everyday when you know that isn't you, try starting off with 2-3 days a week! Moderation helps you safely and happily get to your body goal.
You don't have to have a set number as your goal.
You can easily start off with a goal of "fitting into your old jeans."
You dread the question: "How's your diet going?"
You loath mean people who make fun of others for trying to get in shape at the gym.
You find the best ways to back up your cheat days.
You sometimes wonder how people who are in good shape make it look easy.
The Holidays are a weight loss nightmare!
"I'm having a slice of that pie. End of story."
Water is your NEW best friend.
Sometimes you need a reminder: Make sure you're getting fit for YOU.
Don't try to lose weight or build muscle for someone else, do it for you to make yourself happy. Good luck!
