A lot of people get tied to the idea of losing “X number of pounds per week” when, in reality, we don’t really have any influence over how much weight our body decides to lose at all.
The only thing we do have influence over is the BEHAVIORS responsible for bringing about those outcomes.
So there are really three lessons here…
- While it will never seem fast enough, if you’re making any progress (regardless of how small it is) it is still good progress.
- Focus on the things you can control (behaviors) and stop fixating on the things you can’t (outcomes). Do those things with relentless consistency.
- Be patient. If you’re doing what you need to do, and the results are coming slowly, you will eventually reach your goal. But it is going to take time. Accept this.
