But the bump in the road I wanna talk about:
"I lost 10 lbs. (or 15 or 20 lbs!) but I look exactly the same!"
This is actually something really common among the weight-loss community and sorry to say, but the bigger you start off on this journey, the harder it is to see the changes at first. So think of yourself as a roll of toilet paper (or paper towel if you don't wanna think TP). The first several layers of TP pretty much go down the toilet without making a real difference in what the original roll looks like, right? Same with our bodies. But as you start to use more and more TP - a.k.a lose more and more fat - the changes start to make a BIG difference until you get to the last several layers left on the role. In fact that last 15 - 20 layers on the roll make more of a difference than any other 15 - 20 layers before. Again, same with our bodies.
As you get closer and closer to goal weight, the current 5 lbs. lost can look totally different on your body than the first 20 lbs. you lost! LITERALLY:
My point is... Keep At It!
Weight-loss shouldn't be about just wanting to look better, it should be about getting healthy and fit, so even if you can't see a physical difference in your appearance, eating right and exercising will improving your body from the inside out.
So get moving people!
