Most people expect their rate of weight loss to be constant. But most people drop weight more quickly when they first begin a reducing program. This initial loss, unfortunately, is half fluid and does not reflect how much actual fat tissue you’ve burned. It’s only later that each pound lost reflects the burning of real fat, roughly equivalent to 3,500 calories.

So don’t be fooled into thinking that your initial rate of weight loss will continue. It’s hard work to burn off 3,500 calories a week!

As your weight goes down, you not only lose fat but also a small amount of muscle. It’s estimated that up to 25% of the body tissue lost during weight loss comes from muscle. Since muscle is critical to keeping your metabolism perking, losing it can reduce your metabolic rate and hinder weight loss. Strength training can help preserve and build muscle to get your metabolism humming again.
The set point theory alleges that your body naturally tries to maintain a certain weight where it is most comfortable. If you find yourself stuck at the same weight time and again, you may have reached the comfort zone. Reducing much further typically results in regaining weight.
You may need fewer calories or more physical activity to sustain your lower weight. Increase Exercise Frequency or Intensity. … and don’t skimp on protein!

The left was the start of 2020, lacking confidence, eating anything I wanted and hardly exercising. Seeing improvements every week made me so happy and proud of what I was achieving. I mean, who wouldn’t be proud of that furlough tan? If you’re thinking about starting your fitness journey today or tomorrow, just do it - it’s the best decision you’ll make
