Weight loss is not an overnight sensation- it takes hard work and many hours of sacrifice.
Typically, it is said that it is harder to lose weight as you get older, is this some old wives tale, or what? For every time such utterances are made people would be rich for just speaking and thinking they will lose the weight like magic. Weight loss seems like an easy hurdle to overcome, as seen on every commercial aired be it in print, electronic and otherwise.
Adverts being pushed these days show an individual who has been struggling for years with their weight but has never come across the right solution to their weight loss challenge.
On the market, there are a plethora of supplements, plus other weight loss products which have been recommended by all and sundry to shed inches of that waistline. Funny enough many fail to understand that losing weight is not a one size fit all regiment; it all depends on the person’s metabolism and their lifestyle that will help in the process. We can agree to disagree as to what exercise regiment will get that desired figure we all wish.
A woman confessed to using immunogizer as her remedy to weight loss success, while another says that she stays far away from the product and sticks to her apple cider vinegar which burns in no time without the rigors of having to exercise. Then there are those who swear by the diet pills (Hydroxycut etc.) they constantly take in order to shed the excessive pounds they have gained. On the flip side to all this, you have those who will tell you that you don’t have to change your eating habits, just proper exercise and your intended weight loss will be achieved. Isn’t this taking a short cut to getting to one’s desire of losing weight? This leaves me to wonder how effective it is that you have to shed a few pounds here and there so quickly.
In August 2016, the Minister of Health here in Jamaica Dr. Christopher Tufton Launched “Make Exercise a Daily Habit” where he implored Jamaicans to make exercise a daily habit, in order to avoid non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as cancers, hypertension, and diabetes. Citing statistics from the ‘Jamaica Health and Lifestyle Survey’, he noted that nearly half of Jamaicans are classified as engaging in a very limited physical activity.
To each his own, but at the end of the day, one has to be mindful of what is beneficial to them in the long run of their weight loss journey. It must never be seen or marketed as a one method works for all. “Damn if you do and dam if you don’t, because there is no lasting glory in rapid weight loss if it’s not something which is done continuously. A huge part of losing weight is believing you can do it and realizing it’s not going to happen overnight.
