“Someone I know lost 30lbs in a month, so I want to do that”.
What is with our obsession with rate of weight loss? We act as if the faster it comes off the more impressive it is. Or if we “get it over with” it will somehow be easier.
But isn’t being a lighter version of yourself a result of living like a different version of yourself? So to be that person, you likely need to be there for good. Why then, would intense bursts of unsustainable habits be the desired route?
Weight loss is a side effect of lifestyle habits, and sustained weight loss is a result of finding enjoyment and passion from your new lifestyle habits.
