We live in a world that desires a quick fix. Some call it the “microwave” effect where when we want something, we want it right now. We don’t want to have to wait for it. This is why there is such a huge market for weight loss products that promise instant results!
One of the most important things you can remember in your process of becoming healthy and whole, is that it takes time to see the long-term results that you are after.
So don’t lose heart!
I have worked with people for several years that come to me for a variety of different reasons. Some just want to lose a few pounds, some have life-threatening illnesses, and others want to lose weight to prevent the life-threatening illnesses!
Each and every person has a unique reason for wanting to get well, but very few people want to actually put in the work and make the changes that are necessary.
I have a friend who often says, “seed by seed and row by row, that’s how you make a garden grow.” She uses this analogy in reference to getting healthy.
Many people want to follow a diet plan for one week and have all of their problems be healed! It just doesn’t work that way. We didn’t become unwell overnight.
It was years and for some, decades of unhealthy eating and lack of exercise before it caught up to us. It is going to take some time to undo the years of mishandling our bodies have been through.
But the results of changing your approach to being healthy and whole, are completely worth it.
I encourage you to not be one of those people who throws in the towel! You have far too many reasons to not give up.
I know that this is may seem difficult. If it were easy, everyone would do it! I also know that you have what it takes. You were designed to live in incredible health and wholeness.
So don’t lose heart. Keep going.
