So here’s the thing, I like exercising. I get on my stationary bike every other day and I ride until I am dripping with sweat. I lift weights! I lift weights until my arms tell me not to lift weight anymore. Do I think exercising is good for you? Oh yes! Definitely! Do I think exercise can help you lose weight? No. No I don’t.
Exercising makes me feel amazing! I get the rush of it, the satisfaction of it, the accomplishment of it. It makes me feel detoxified and strong, has it ever helped me lose weight? Has it burned my fat? No! Exercising is great in the way that it helps with circulation, muscle maintenance and growth, and sweating out excess water, but it doesn’t burn the fat.
If you are thinking about losing weight but are afraid of exercise, don’t over do it. Focus on the diet and changing the way you eat first, make healthy decisions and once you are confident you have the food under control then attempt the exercise. This way you won’t become overwhelmed with changing everything about how you eat AND feeling uncomfortable with movement and muscle fatigue.
