The Short Cut to Weight Loss

Short Cut to Weight LossHow much time and money have you wasted on trying the newest gadget, supplement, pill, bar, shake and diet that didn’t deliver or last anyway? We’ve all done it. We try the easiest way first. Then, when that doesn’t work, we try the next easy thing. But, after you’ve tried 10-20 short cuts, you finally resort to fitness. Yes, you finally try eat right and exercise. After you finally get results, you realize you could have saved a lot of time and money if you just lost the weight the right way the first time around.

So, essentially, exercise and diet IS the short cut. It’s the best way to get results fast – and to maintain those results. Sure, it’s not the easiest way, but not all short cuts are easy – but they can still be fast.

julianne talleyMy mom tried everything in the book. She tried diet pills, diet programs, diet support groups, acupuncture – you name it, she tried it. She even tried to Jazzercise off the weight. Finally, in her fifties, she finally decided it was time to LEARN the right way to eat and exercise. She realized she had relied on gimmicks and rules for weight loss, not knowledge. It took some time and energy to learn everything she needed to do, but it worked.

She finally learned to eat smart, and not diet. She learned how to exercise right, and manage her weight by understanding the checks and balances of her body. She lost 100lbs. At 60 she finally got the results she’s always wanted.

Don’t be tempted to put fitness off as a last resort. It should be the first thing you try, not the last.

Here is my mom in 2003, before she tackled her weight, and now (with my dad) at the gym. So proud of both my parents. My dad put on 25lbs of muscle over the last 10 years, and they workout and run together on a regular basis. They may have waited until their late 50s to get fit, but they have successfully reinvented themselves and are living the fit life in their 60s! They prove it’s never too late to do it right! Love you guys!!!!!!

  1. Your parents look awesome. Great post

  2. Your parents look great! As a trainer I do like to check into the latest things and maybe even try them so that I can give an informed response when people ask. But I so agree with doing it right the first time always!

    • Thanks! I’m so proud of them. …and I agree, we should always keep researching and trying things (as long as we aren’t just looking for a short cut to get out of doing what we know we are supposed to!) Believe me, if there was a diet pill and a muscle drink – I’d be on both of them! I’m lazy!! haha 😉

  3. Really they are looking stunning. 🙂

  4. I keep telling people if if were as simple as a pill, drink or wrap, there would be no obesity issues. A friend told me a mutual friend just spent $200 on a 24 day challenge and this money got them six supplements to take. Ugh!!! I told her I could have saved her the money with this same advice that you just posted. Making good food/drink choices and working out. Keep writing and keep reminding everyone! BTW – your parents look fabulous!

  5. So many people seem to give up when they reach middle age. Health and fitness is there for everyone at any age with a bit of effort. Thanks for the inspiration.

  6. Your mode of describing the whole thing in this paragraph is genuinely nice, all be capable
    of without difficulty be aware of it, Thanks a lot.

  7. continuously i used to read smaller articles which also clear their motive, and that is also
    happening with this post which I am reading at this time.

  8. Fastidious answer back in return of this matter with solid arguments and explaining
    everything on the topic of that.

  9. Magnificent goods from you, man. I’ve understand your stuff previous to and you’re just extremely great. I really like what you’ve acquired here, really like what you’re stating and the way in which you say it. You make it enjoyable and you still care for to keep it sensible. I can’t wait to read much more from you. This is really a wonderful web site.
