I’m back with another question for you.
Do you ever feel like no matter what you do you can’t lose weight?
Have you ever wondered why you seem to do the right things, make the best choices and yet, you don’t see the results you want to see?
Maybe you have a significant amount of weight to lose to get in a healthy range, or maybe you just want to fit more comfortably into last year’s jeans.
If you’ve followed my health & fitness journey at all, you know I struggled with figuring out how to make real, lasting changes to my body, health and life up until a few years ago.
I know all about the annoying diet/exercise cycle.
I know all about the “I’ll be better on Monday” habit.
And I know what it feels like to feel uncomfortable in my own skin.
Over the next week, I’m going to be sharing a series of posts revealing why you’re not losing weight or seeing results from your workouts.
Before we begin, I need you to know something.
I thought long and hard about writing “weight loss” posts because The Balanced Life is not purely about weight loss. It’s about so much more than that. It’s about being confident, healthy, comfortable in your skin, regardless of your pant size.
But there is a reality that needs to be addressed. Many people need to lose weight to be healthier. It’s a real problem, especially in the US, one that can’t be ignored.
Sometimes extra weight is something that needs to be lost. It needs to be lost to improve cholesterol, blood pressure, joint mechanics and quality of life.
So please know that these posts are meant to enter the conversation of weight loss in a way that is balanced, appropriate and well-intentioned.
This series is not about starving yourself, working out like crazy so you look hot in your bikini or trying to lose 10 lbs when don’t have 10 lbs to lose.
This series is about what our culture has been missing when it comes to weight loss and seeing real results from your food and exercise choices.
It’s about clearing up the misconceptions we have about what is “healthy” and how our body responds to food and exercise.
My intention is to help you avoid common mistakes that leave you feeling unsatisfied and disappointed with your results when we’re trying to do the right thing for your body and health.
Soon I’ll be sharing the #1 reason most people don’t see results. It’s a big one.
Enjoy the rest of your day and see you back here on Friday…
