How long does it take to see results with exercise?
Sometimes it feels as if you are working so hard and not seeing results! You may start asking yourself “When am I going to start seeing results for all the hard work that I have been doing?!”
Even though the diet marketing people want to make us think that we can quickly lose 15-20 lbs in a week by using their products, it isn’t really likely or that easy. Also, in the small chance that the product does work, it isn’t likely that the weight loss will stick around and be permanent.
Try this, instead of only gauging your progress by what the scale says, think beyond just weight based result. You may find that you are being consistent and working so hard, but don’t have results on the scale. Don’t just look at the number on the scale. Maybe your strength and endurance have improved, you notice that your body is changing and you are feeling better and healthier and you feel happier and better all around.
So, how long does it take to see results with exercise? Remember even though you may already feel the results of a healthy lifestyle change right away, it can take between 4-6 week to see results when first starting a new workout routine.
Like I said in last weeks post about Muscle and Fat, focus on fat loss and how you feel, not just the number on the scale. When you feel good you can’t help but look good too!
