There are plenty of websites claiming for weight loss in a week’s time or month if we join their program. They also claims, lose weight without pain, cut your fat without diet, burn your calories without efforts etc. It’s really surprising to see their claims with pictures and it’s easy to get convinced with their commentary. But, is that really possible? Is that good to give it a try? Is that fine to risk the money, health for this attempt? All these questions hit our mind and we get confused.
In reality, I would say, if there is no pain, no gain. Weight loss is a planned effort we have to work it out in consistent manner to get the result. Consistency, perseverance, never give-up attitude are vital to shape up our body. This is well proven by one of my blogger friend Launna, I’m happy to share her story how she gone through the struggle over a period of time to achieve her goal. Read through Launna’s story in her own words...
“I decided a couple of months before I turned 50 that I wanted to change my life and that I did not want to be in the same place I was at that time. I have been a big girl for almost 30 years of my life. I knew for me to succeed, I would have to exercise a lot and eat very healthy, very little processed foods. My first day on June 15, 2013, I went for a walk and I used an app called Map My Walk, the first mile took me 22 minutes, within six months I had a mile down to almost 14 minutes. I lost 78 pounds in ten months, I walked anywhere between 15-25 miles per week and I tracked all my food through My Fitness Pal, these two apps are amazing, they are on my home page on my smart phone, I love them. I also completed a 5K after 6 months. All the food I eat are fresh, cooked by me, a lot of salads and vegetables, a ton of water. Really, it is exactly what you have always been told, you have to expend more calories than what you put in, you can lose it by eating healthy but exercising helps it along and it became a way of life for me”
