For many people, the start of a new year feels like a chance for new opportunities. It’s a time to lay to rest the bad habits of the past year and start over with a healthy lifestyle. People set lofty resolutions of spending six days a week at the gym and replacing meals with salads in the hopes of achieving quick results.
If you’ve been struggling with weight loss, this time of year can also be discouraging. When you’ve already made countless lifestyle changes and worked yourself to the max and still don’t feel like you’ve achieved your goals, the idea of New Year’s resolutions may seem fruitless.
For those of you feeling the pressure this year, we would like to propose an alternate resolution: make a resolution to change your relationship with your body.
If going to the gym six days a week makes you feel strong and happy, then by all means make that commitment to yourself. If you know that going to the gym six days a week doesn’t give you the results you want and makes you feel hopeless, then don’t put yourself through that again this year. Instead resolve to understand your body.
Many people don’t know that diet and exercise don’t actually get rid of fat cells. You may be able to shrink your fat cells through a healthy lifestyle, but the only way to actually remove them is through body contouring procedures. If you’ve been struggling with a problem area for a long time and haven’t been able to achieve the results you want, it’s not your fault.
Diet and exercise are an important part of any weight loss journey, but they are not the only solutions. When New Year’s resolutions aren’t enough to get you where you want to be, it may be time to consider other options.
