Whatever you do in life, if you don’t include timeframes in your plans, it will make its direction and foundation vague. You should know the time you’ll spend on a certain thing so you’d know what to expect and the effort you need to exert. It’s also true in your weight loss journey.
When considering timeframes, it’s all about you, your focus, and your knowledge about what you do. You should know what you expect in a certain period because this could either encourage you or discourage you from pursuing this. But why?
For instance, in your weight loss journey, you want to trim some 60 lbs of weight in just two weeks because you’re the kind of person who doesn’t like to wait for that much. Well, IT’S IMPOSSIBLE. As a result, it will discourage you.
Such cases may happen to you if you don’t have enough knowledge of what you’re aiming to happen and what you can do.
One of the most critical factors in creating your timeframe is how quick you want your goal to happen. Are you willing to exert efforts in 2 weeks, 3 months, 6 months, 1 year? Better assess yourself first before deciding on getting a program.
But let me give you some realistic estimations based on my clients’ experiences during their weight loss journey, and there are two options based on the two kinds of people: HIGHLY-DISCIPLINED and AVERAGE.
HIGHLY-DISCIPLINED PERSON: You can set the timeframe of your training in as fast as 3 months. This is a bit fast since you can discipline yourself with your calories and macros intake. That’s why you really have to be honest with yourself when assessing what you can do.
AVERAGE PERSON: You can go with a slower option of training. You can set the timeframe in 6 months or more. I would say you’re an average person if you know you can’t stick with your diet plan and possibly can’t do workouts on scheduled dates or hours. Having less discipline means having slow progress.
Being on and off in doing workouts will never work in losing weight effectively. It will only discourage you from pursuing your body transformation, and you’ll surely get stuck in lose weight gain weight cycle.
The average weight loss of all my clients within 6 months of training is about 50 to 60 lbs.
