Most weight loss programs tout, as their main selling point, “Quick” or “Fast” results. The reality is that your body can only metabolize fat so fast, so barring intervention by a surgeon, weight loss is going to take a while.

Of course, that means that the more you need to lose, the longer it will take to reach your ultimate goal. I fully expect it to take a year to get to my goal weight. A year!!

Wow! Talk about delayed gratification!

So what is one to do? A year is a long time to wait for anything. (Like, for example, the next Avengers movie!) That’s where the “1 Meal – 1 Workout” philosophy comes in.

When I first started my journey to better health, wrapping my mind around the need to lose 175 lbs or so was not something I could do. I decided to approach it one day at a time. Then, I broke it down another level: one meal at a time.

My goal was (and still is) at each opportunity, to make the best decision that I can. One year to go? Nah. One meal to go. I can do one meal.

Quit working out? That’s crazy talk! I don’t really mean “quit” working out. But maybe there’s reason to take a break. Click HERE to start listening!
