How long did it take you to lose all that weight? I get that question a lot. Through clean eating and working out 6 days a week in 12 week cycles, it took me the better part of a year to lose the first 125#.
I’m sure there are people out there thinking “That’s like forever!”. Well it may seem like an eternity but in reality that was pretty fast and consistent.
What other choice do you have? You are not going to wake up one morning and be magically thin, so just get busy doing what must be done.
Don’t think I’m unkind or harsh, that’s not it. But the truth is it is just a waste of precious time sitting there saying I’ll start Monday. Or I’ll start when I finish this exercise book. Or I’ll start working out after I lose 10# or 20# or 30#. Or I’ll start once little Johnny starts school.
Does it really matter how long it takes? I used to think that I had to have spectacular results in x amount of time. Now I just focus on doing the work each and every day and the results naturally follow.
It’s time to get busy!
