Are your Weight Loss Expectations Realistic?

scaleIf there were a quick and easy way of losing weight- we would all be thin.  Of course this is not the reality; weight loss is a serious challenge.  Talking from my own personal experience, I started to lose weight at the rate of 1-2 pounds a week.  I felt disappointed at first, because I wanted to lose about 4 pounds a week.  I now know that was un-realistic.  Fortunately, I did not get discouraged and continued my game plan of eating healthy, organic foods.

I was rewarded with continuing weight loss at a steady 1-2 pound drop every week.  This adds to big weight loss over time.  It is essential to be realistic in your expectations so that you do not get disappointed and quit.  Nutritional experts will advise that 1-2 pounds of weight loss per week is normal and healthy if you are consistent.  It goes without saying that fad diets and quick fixes do not work.  Setting realistic expectations is the first step you need to take in this weight loss process!  Enjoy!
