You may very well be making progress without even noticing.
It’s safe to say that if you lost 0.1 pounds in a day, you would never notice any kind of a change. Even if that occurs every day for a week, you still wouldn’t even lose 1 pound.
If you step on the scale, nothing will be different. You’ll likely look exactly the same. It’s easy to assume that you’ve made zero progress.
But let’s look at the big picture. If this continues for a year, you’d lose almost 40 pounds.
0.1 pounds is progress you would never notice, but it’s progress that is still happening, and can lead to some pretty major results over time.
Regardless of how much weight you are losing, you’re never going to see the exact same results day after day- your weight is always going to fluctuate. But when you feel like you’re making absolutely no progress, there’s a strong chance that the progress is just too small to notice right now.
Patience is always the key.
A year might feel like a long time to wait for results, but a year will pass you by before you know it. Don’t get caught up in short-term, unrealistic goals. Focus on the big picture and don’t get discouraged.
It might feel like you’re not making any progress, but wait it out. Flex your patience muscle and watch how it benefits you in the long term.
It’s the smallest changes that can make the biggest differences.
