- Be Patient and stay consistent!
“Success isn’t always about greatness. It’s about consistency” -Dwayne Johnson
On paper, everything looks good but in practicality, you may not be able to meet your expectations
as quickly as you would have imagined. When that happens, we want you to remember that its okay.
Things will not change overnight. Lifestyle change is a process and it will take time and it is important
that you stay patient during the process and to not lose faith. Focus more on the day-to-day victories
and challenges rather than worrying about the end result. Try to enjoy the changes you are making
and stay consistent with your efforts.
You can also ask your friends and family to support you during the process and ensure that you are
setting realistic expectations so that you stay satisfied with your progress.
You can also consult a doctor or a dietician to help you with the process!
