What Option Are You Going For? 🤔

A lot of people’s fat-loss journeys start off with option 1

They make LOADS of changes – big ones!

They go “all in”

“All or nothing”

“Boom or bust”

I’ve been there myself – many times

A few reflections …

It sucked being hungry all the time & feeling like “I’m on a diet”

It sucked punishing myself at the gym – especially the gruelling cardio

It sucked when I fell off the bandwagon and regained all the weight I’d lost because what I was doing wasn’t sustainable

It also sucked repeating the whole thing over and over again until I learned a really important lesson:

True long-term success is NOT “all or nothing” – it’s not “black or white”

Long-term success lies in the grey

Yes, this means consistent effort – but not chasing perfection – not chasing 100%

We know “all or nothing” isn’t compatible with real life

Especially if you’ve got lots doing on – e.g. career, relationships, social life, kids etc

“Perfect” isn’t sustainable

Consistently “good enough” beats inconsistently perfect – every time

That means training – not everyday – but a few times each week

That means eating in a small calorie deficit with no food restrictions

That means enjoying the process, losing weight slowly but keeping it off long-term

Make no mistake, successful fat loss is a long process – a marathon, not a sprint

Trying to speed it up usually backfires

Be patient. Trust the process. Keep taking those baby steps.

Think 12 months, not 12 weeks
