I’m not getting the weight loss results I wanted (part 2)
This is a the second in a 2 part series on the reasons you may not getting the results you want in your fitness goals. In other words, why you aren’t getting smaller even though you are working hard. So, where were we…
Your adrenals or thyroid are weak
Running through life at 150 mph and fueling our bodies poorly, (not to mention emotional stress) takes it toll. Actually, there are many reasons why your thyroid or adrenals weaken. I’ve really enjoyed everything I’ve read at Jen Spinger’s website, including this Adrenal Fatiue Questionaire. If you want more help and insight in the thyroid department, get connected with Mary Shomon.
Some form of dis-ease plagues you
By “dis-ease” I don’t just mean diseases as we know them. I’m talking physical, emotional, spiritual and the like. Dis-ease means anything that puts you NOT at ease. We are physical, emotional and spiritual beings and dis-ease can plague us on any one of those levels. When dis-ease enters, it can impact every part of our physical body as well. Take a long reflective look at what’s going on in your life. Are you doing too much? Are you carrying around a load of unforgiveness? Are you out of fellowship with God?
You don’t get enough sleep
Hello. You will not feel like keeping up with your work outs if you stay up after 10pm every night. Not only that, you’ll be on the road to adrenal fatigue as well. Please sleep, your body will thank you. Ideally you should go to bed by 10pm most nights. Remember, every hour your sleep before midnight counts for 2!
Hormones are ruling you
Women, this is especially for you. Our hormones fluctuate a lot in just one month’s time. Then as we age, we begin to change even more until we finally go through menopause. Each person seems to move through life’s transitions just a little bit differently but almost everyone will agree that the older you get, the harder it is to lose weight. This is partly due to the hormone shift occurring in your body. Ironically, even though I have divided out all these “reasons” this last week, they are all actually interconnected. Meaning, your hormones will be worse if you eat poorly or don’t exercise enough. But your hormone or adrenal imbalance might cause you to not sleep at night. See what I mean?
“Woe is me” wins over “yes I can”
These are the folks who start out with a bang, workout for a few weeks, maybe even 3-4 months, don’t see what they expected and “shove it”. Losing inches takes a serious dose of “YES I WILL” and “just do it.” I’ve talked to many folks who didn’t see any inch loss for months, sometimes more than a year, then suddenly everything started melting away. I always tell my clients, “often times the body will heal itself on the inside before it shows up on the outside.” T-Tapp is a very rehabilitative workout– structurally and also internally.
Ultimately, as I stated earlier, your body is all connected and one thing will always effect the whole. Be careful that you look first to what can be fixed on the inside, without any medication or doctors, the emotional part of you. Starting there can take you leaps and bounds toward a whole person before ever consulting someone else!
