If you’re a woman who has tried to lose weight, you may have noticed something: it’s hard. Much harder than simply cutting your calories and watching the weight fall off. There are complexities beyond simple math; emotional, physical and social barriers that simply aren’t addressed by a male-dominated fitness industry.
From my experience, it’s self compassion, self-criticism, patience and tenacity. It might take months to see results. And keep in mind that body fat is not a complete indication of health – there are lots now who have high blood pressure/etc but low body fat.
