On the street to weight loss, fitness, and health, you can become discouraged easily. In fact, discouragement is what leads many people to give-up when they could have been near a spot of significant progress and encouragement in their program. I’ve put together my “top 10 10” points of encouragement to keep your spirits high on your street to weight reduction, fitness, and health.
1. It does progress – and very quickly often! Many people that are significantly overweight or which have been sedentary for a long time, find any activity, walking a couple of hundred feet even, to be very difficult and uncomfortable. Be encouraged, many physiological changes happen rapidly once you begin moving. Walking, for example, starts getting easier and more comfortable within a month or more. Excersice – every day is a little better!

2. I love this lady’s story. It just enables you to want to cheer for her while sitting down at your computer. Margie from Madison, Wisconsin weighed 296 pounds when she started walking in her neighborhood. She says she began by walking about 50 % a block twice a day and that it was incredibly difficult initially. Following the second day she acquired made a decision to stop but a neighbor prompted her to keep.
Every day she strolled the same route but added just a little distance every week. She says there have been many days when she wanted to quit, but she desired very terribly lose excess weight and become healthy. After almost a year people in her neighborhood started noticing her consistency and her progress and started giving her compliments and words of encouragement.
She said that after a couple of months of walking, it went from painful to enjoyable. About ten weeks into her walking program, she started her morning walk as usual, but she observed people out in their yards. 3. The visible signs of progress in a weight-loss program tend to be very slow to come. Healthy weight loss does take time, but that may be very discouraging. Each day that you exercise and eat healthy foods in moderate quantities Be encouraged to know that for, you have made progress. It could not be measurable that day, but you have made improvements and it’ll be measurable over an interval of a few months and weeks.
4. Katherine was 43 years-old and had been sedentary for twenty years. The scale hadn’t changed in those twenty years – she still weighed 136 pounds, but she knew she had lost muscle and gained fat. Her waist was bigger and she couldn’t fit into the same size clothes that she did 20 years earlier.
What bothered her most was that she was always exhausted and never acquired energy. She decided to start walking and weight training but quit after a week. She said, “it’s too uncomfortable, I cannot keep doing this.” I inspired her to keep and told her that it would get better. She “quit” three times during the next two weeks.
