If you have been trying your best to adapt a healthy diet and move your body more, and everytime it seems overwhelming or frustrating, let me tell you one thing, you are not alone in this.
When transitioning to a healthy lifestyle, it can be a bit difficult and challenging to stay motivated especially when you are expecting overnight results or weight loss. Remember, this isn’t a temporary process, it’s a lifestyle change that requires patience, faith and consistent efforts.
To be honest, for me it really took a long way to adapt to this lifestyle and each day I am learning and trying my best to maintain it.
For every picture that we see on social media platforms, of people exclaiming how easy it is to move their body and how fabulous it feels to adapt a healthy way of eating, the reality lies in their daily practice and constant hard work.
Being healthy isn’t confined only to the number of hours you workout, remember it is a work in, so what you practice the entire day post session, that’s when your true journey begins, that’s when the true transition happens.
Before transitioning to a healthy way of living, I struggled my entire life with obesity and a lot of health issues. Depression, thyroid, were one such results of chronic health problems.
I still remember my entire focus revolved around shedding the weight, expecting some xyz numbers on the weighing scale without even understanding what a healthy lifestyle is. I was on every fad diet imaginable that promised quick results in weight loss without having to go for any kinda workout, yes I did achieve some results, but only for a short term. In the wake of losing weight, I tried it all without understanding the balanced nutrient value that a human body needs or the reason behind why am I eating what I am eating.
And the consequences of these fad diets? Weakness, fatigue, slowing down of metabolism and a lot more. And believe me these diets are not sustainable as the cravings for the food takes over, so one ends up gaining weight again.
The desperate struggle to lose weight became my only focus and I was sick of it all. And that’s when I realised that I need to shift my attention. When you shift your perspective and mindset from “quick results” to “trusting the process” everything changes.
So don’t wait for a miraculous change to happen. Apart from daily workout, change your eating habits too, it might seem difficult at first, but once you get started it’s easy to sustain and you will fall in love with it. The results will come. Trust the process and trust yourself.
