Looking Vs. Feeling The Difference

For many people embarking on a weight control effort, one of the main motivations is to look different in her/his physical appearance.  There is a strong desire to:

  • Look younger
  • Look more fit
  • Look better in form-fitting clothes
  • Look more confident in body-revealing clothes such as beach/pool wear

Another major motivation in losing weight is to feel a difference in body sensations:

  • Feel more energy
  • Feel more confident 
  • Feel younger
  • Feel more optimistic
  • Feel less pain

However, there are other major benefits of losing/controlling weight that are not “seen or felt” (at least not immediately):

  • Lowering of blood pressure
  • Lowering of blood sugar and cholesterol
  • Lowering the risk of cancer
  • Lowering the risk of severe Covid illness

Here is the point:  In the first several days/weeks of your weight control journey, you will not immediately look, feel or have any the “non-look or feel” benefits of weight control.  These take some time to be realized.  However, on the immediate basis, those food, drink and snack sources that derail our weight control efforts are difficult to give up as they provide the instant gratification.

During your long-term weight control journey try to always keep in mind the great “look and feel” positive impacts that you obtain as well as the more “hidden” benefits listed above.  Your success will change your life in amazing ways.  Stay steadfast in your efforts.
