As much as you wish to see positive results when working hard to achieve your fitness goals, there is no guarantee that you will. For some people, it only requires a few weeks to see significant changes. However, for some people, despite everything they do, they still do not see changes. Before you get frustrated, these tips will help you.
Realise that bodies react differently
Not all bodies are the same. For instance, some people who tried intermittent fasting saw changes within two weeks while others had to wait several months, even those who hit the gym to build muscles. For some, it only takes a month to bulk up, while others have to double their efforts and still see no significant change. The point is that you are doing the right thing, but your body is yet to change the way you want. Give it some time and allow the process to take place.
Before you compare yourself with others, you first need to determine how faithful you are to your plan. Perhaps, others saw significant changes because they remained true to their plan. In your case, you might have some days when you do not follow the plan at all. Examine your efforts and stop lying to yourself.
You are not alone
If you feel like you are not changing at all, you might not be the only one. Again, some people take more time before seeing changes. These people did not give up, you should not either! Besides, it is not a sprint towards the finish line. It is not a competition at all.
Use other standards
Another reason why you might feel that way is that you only base your success on the weighing scale. Perhaps, it is time that you expand your measure of happiness. For instance, you can look at how healthy you are these past days because of your diet changes. You do not suffer from hypertension anymore. You have no more stomach issues. These are significant changes that could happen because of your weight loss efforts.
Stop looking at the results
You will not feel bad if you stop looking at the results. Stay away from the weighing scale for a while. Do not keep looking in the mirror while you are naked. You will feel good about yourself when you focus only on being happy with your efforts and not on how much you have changed since you started.
If you still do not feel good about yourself and your efforts, you can try some medical weight loss techniques. With the help of technology, you can speed the process up. You will not feel frustrated anymore because the results are visible instantly. You still need to continue with your current techniques though. Do not be too hard on yourself and enjoy each step of your weight loss journey.
