In our daily life’s stress has now become almost a part of our being. It really defines what we do, how we do and if we are really in a position to take up new things and challenges in the pipeline.
A lot of things are affected due to a thing as small as stress, your relationships, career, general attitude and your health too. Whatever you do physically or mentally reflects directly on your health status. So knowingly or unknowingly stress has affected each and every one in many different ways, mostly harmful.
When we talk about stress in terms of people who are weight watchers, people who are trying to lose it or maintain it, easily fall under the cycle of stressing over. Many people trying to lose weight, start with a fad diet, might lose a few kgs here and there but end up gaining double. As a result they fall into a psychological trap and start eating large amounts of food to overcome the sadness.
Weight loss requires simple fundas: Dedication, Motivation and Commitment.
One must know, “If you didn’t gain weight in a day, you won’t lose it in a day either.”
Stress is a big reason of you either gaining a lot of weight or losing a lot of it suddenly (taking into consideration that nothing is wrong with you clinically). And that my lovelies, is the most harmful thing you can do to yourself!
What you can do!
- Be realistic: Set realistic goals for yourself, like 3-4 kgs a month. And do it in a healthier manner, because the aim is not just to lose it, but maintain it too. DO NOT fall for “10 kgs in 10 days” crap. Always think, what are you going to do after that, stop eating at all forever??
- Stay Committed: Stay committed to your goal, be at it, nobody can eat good food for you, and no one can do your cardio for you. Long term is what matters, nothing else.
- Let Go: Let go of that STRESS. It’s not that easy, agreed! But, it isn’t that difficult either. YES YOU CAN!! Stress isn’t helping you in any way except making you age faster and giving you unnecessary wrinkles! Now you choose do you really want that??
Save yourself, embrace who you are, but at the same time, choose health, that’s the only wealth you really have!!!
