While most weight loss programs can give you a general idea of average pounds lost per week, no one can tell you with any certainty how long it will take to achieve your goals.  That’s because weight loss is a personal journey.  The time frame it takes to achieve your personal goals will vary depending on your precision, your behavioral changes, and changing the patterns of your daily life.  Weight loss is achieved by shifting your mindset and it’s a change that lasts a lifetime.

The precision with which you follow your chosen weight loss plan will drastically affect the time it takes to achieve your goals.  If you are inconsistent with your program you will set back your weight loss and add to the amount of time it takes to achieve your goals.  The investment you are willing to make to lose weight directly impacts your success.  The more effort you are willing to put into it, the more successful you will be.

Behavioral Changes

Achieving your goals takes more than just stamina it also requires behavioral adjustments.  You have to change the way you behave in order to lose weight.  A number of behaviors can affect weight loss.  Some of these behaviors include, portion control, calorie intake, nutritional education, accountability, and even overcoming obstacles.  Only you know which of these are problematic for you but each of them can dramatically affect the time it takes to achieve your goals.

Pattern of Daily Life

Successful weight loss is more than achieving a number on a scale.  It is a change in your mindset.  As you begin your weight loss program you’ll want to take a moment and consider whether you are a social eater, an emotional eater, or an overeater.  You should also consider if work travel or eating out a lot are personal barriers for you. Each of these can feel like overwhelming barriers to your weight loss, however, simple changes in your daily patterns can drastically affect your success.  Once you change your daily patterns you will be thrilled with your weight loss results.

How long it takes varies for each individual but is impacted by your choices.  Be sure to discuss any personal barriers or problematic areas with your weight loss consultant to give yourself the best chance at success.
