Weight loss isn’t a straight line. If you need to lose a lot of weight it isn’t a quick trip either. It takes time, commitment, and mostly a bunch of consistent lifestyle changes. I rarely eat sugar, grain, or dairy. I rarely drink anything except water and coffee. I do eat meat, good fats, vegetables, fruit, and I exercise. I eat that way 90% of the time. I have to in order to maintain my weight loss and lose more. I know that I feel my best when I eat a clean diet. I’ve accepted that it is the best thing for me most days…no matter how great junk food tastes. It’s what works for me and what I can maintain for the long haul. Still, I’ve been losing weight now for nearly two years. It didn’t happen quickly and at times (especially early on) I wasn’t consistent which of course slowed my progress.
I get a lot of searches on this blog from people looking for ways to lose weight quickly and/or easily. I am writing this post for them. It isn’t a quick process. It takes dedication and it takes patience. It’s also worth it. You’ll get there but it’s not going to happen overnight. It never does.
