Losing Weight: Strive For Progress... Not Perfection

If losing weight were easy...EVERYONE WOULD BE DOING IT and I would be out of a job! Seriously! We all know this because we would have lost the weight YEARS ago! All you have to do it just try to get your workouts in and eat right. To make progress you just have to do it. Eat 80/20 so that you allow yourself to still have a treat every now and then and not feel guilty for it. and if you can't exercise 7 days a week Aim for Monday- Friday. Some exercise is better than none! You don't have to be perfect you just have to make progress!

All too often I hear about people going in 100% to their workouts and eating, which is GREAT! But it isn't sustainable for the long term. Why? Because life happens. And often when life happens we fall off the wagon, then if we were pushing really hard and fast and 100% we feel guilty for falling off the wagon, then binge eating happens or a huge break from workouts happen. Then more guilt. The frustration. Then just giving up. Then the cycle begins again. Go in 100% for a short time, fall off, guilt and so forth. IT'S TIME TO CHANGE HOW WE APPROACH LOSING WEIGHT AND THE WAY WE THINK ABOUT LOSING WEIGHT TO MAKE THIS TRULY WORK AND BE A LIFELONG CHANGE! It's ok to go 80/20. It's ok to have a candy bar occasionally, or dessert or pasta! It's ok to miss a workout occasionally.  This is about a lifestyle change. A CHANGE FOR LIFE! Which takes TIME. Strive for progress not perfection.
