Today I had no less than 3 people proclaim as they saw me “You've lost alot of weight!” It got me thinking on a line of thought that didn't belong in my head at the time. I started thinking about the scale. I started thinking about numbers. I lost my focus at that very moment.
Focus is the key to what all of us are trying to do. You put your eyes on the prize and don't take them off. At times the prize might become hazy, you might not see it as clearly as at other times, but you have to maintain your focus.
Find a plan that works for you. Measure your progress. Make assessments weekly. Make the changes to your plan to continue pushing yourself towards the prize. Stop jumping from plan to plan. Stop changing up your workout plan on a weekly basis. Every strength training plan needs time to work. You can't measure your success by what happens in one particular week. That is a fatal mistake and it amounts to losing focus.
Anything worth doing takes time. You didn't get out of shape overnight. It isn't like you sat down and ate a ton of food, went to bed and woke up fat. You did this to yourself over time. Why do you expect it to change overnight?
