How often do you hold off losing weight because you have a stag/hen do or wedding coming up?
You decide you’re going to start on Monday because you don’t have any plans for the next 8 weeks and you will get a good run at it.
You very very rarely get a ‘good run’ at it. If you are waiting for the perfect time to start your weight loss, guess what, this time next year you will still be thinking about losing weight.
Unfortunately, life doesn’t stop for you. You can either:
1) Wait and wait and wait for the perfect time.
2) Start losing weight now and understand that there are weeks where just maintaining weight is still progress. (Not chasing perfection)
I hear this all the time in consultations, “I have no plans for 8 weeks”, then within 2 weeks they realise they have a birthday party or work outing that they had forgotten about.
It’s not a big deal, though if we knew that from the beginning we could plan around it.
On the other hand, I’ve had clients lose 8-12lbs in the first 3 weeks then they go on a stag do, come back from it and have maintained weight.
The decision is yours! 👍
