You can’t lose weight without some effort. Great as it would be if there were an instant weight loss or fitness pill that you could take that would help you get fit and lose weight, this basically isn’t going to happen anytime soon, if ever.
So, if you want to achieve this kind of goal you’ll have to really want to do it and you’ll have to work really hard.
Now, the chances are you’ll put a lot of effort into this, at least to begin with. Once you take the bull by the horns and decide you’re going to try and lose weight or get fitter, you are the one that needs to actually make this happen. This will probably not be too much hassle to begin with — your simple motivation to do this kind of stuff will take you a long way.
And you’ll also see your hard work rewarded at this early stage. The effort you put in to eat to a diet or to work out will see you lose weight and get fitter. You’ll feel better physically and you’ll be mentally motivated to carry on. But, and this is a big but, this may not last forever. Eventually, you may see fewer results for the same amount of effort, and as time passes, even if you try harder, your success rates will dip down and die off.
Point here is that all the hard work in the world won’t help you out on most diets and fitness programs once that honeymoon period of the first few weeks has gone by. Your body will simply get used to what you are doing and it won’t be able to replicate the initial results forever. Eventually, it’ll won’t be able to turn your effort into the results you so desperately want to see. So you will need to change something.
You can’t expect to see consistent weight loss/fitness gains from the same fitness and diets and dieting solutions week after week and month after month. Unfortunately most of them are one-dimensional — they will take you to a certain point or will tone up a certain part of your body but they then can’t do anything for you at all. Truth is, you can get better results from diets, dieting solutions and fitness programs if you "move them around a bit" by trying different things out.
