Honest Answers About Weight Loss

May 13th, 2009

People who need to lose weight are finding that they receive a lot of mixed messages about what the best way to do that might be. They are told to move more and to eat less, but they aren’t really told what that will get them, which one is more important, and whether there are other factors at work. Because of that they start eating better and getting some exercise but they still don’t lose weight, so they get frustrated and give up before they ever really get started.

First of all, you have to remember that it took time to put the weight on, so it’s going to take time to get the weight off, as well. Also, you need to remember that there are some medical conditions, such as a sluggish thyroid, that can keep you from losing weight. If you don’t know whether you have any of these conditions, you might not be able to lose weight the way you would like and you’ll just get upset and angry.

Avoid that and have a check-up. You’ll know whether there are any problems and you can address them with the right kind of diet and exercise.
