Counting calories according to your metabolic formula;
Working out intensely most days of the week;
Getting 8 hours of quality REM sleep every night;
Managing stressful circumstances & people;
Keeping your eyes on the prize around holidays, happy hours, and birthday cake…
But you only lost 6 pounds this month instead of 8 or 10. Even when you put 100% effort into transforming your metabolism into a muscle-building, fat-burning machine, your metabolism can take from 30-90 days to regulate. Instead of fretting, keep doing what you’re doing and trust in science. Know that because of your effort, you are strengthening your muscles, conditioning your cardiopulmonary system, and reprogramming your brain to prioritize your health–yourself.
Stay on track. While you may be losing slowly–you are still losing. Have faith in the process. Have faith in yourself. Weight loss and body transformation is not a race. It’s a journey to a completely new way of life.
