Today we’re gonna be discussing how long does it take to start seeing weight loss results now.
That is one of the number one questions I always get so that’s what we’re gonna discuss today and I’m gonna break it down into a timeline from week one to week four, so that way you know exactly what to expect on your weight loss journey stay tuned okay let’s jump right into this step now I’m going to be talking to two types of people.
Number one, you may have just started an exercise program, and you’re just curious about what expectations you should have, or you maybe a couple of weeks into a program.
You’re just unsure about what you’re doing is getting you the results, or you want to measure your progress against some timeline that’s what I’m going to be doing in this article is breaking it down from week one to week four because that’s a critical timeline within those four weeks and it gives you some prevalent markers that you should measure your progress up against
Starting week 1 is very exciting because you come out of the gate you start seeing the changes on the scale go down, meaning you know weight loss now I’m depending on where you start meaning you may have a lot of weight to lose or you may not have as much to lose you will see about 2 to 5 pounds of weight loss now some of that weight loss is going to come from water weight.
Still, then some of it is gonna come from body fat. During this first week, you may not see many changes in your body, meaning when you look in the mirror but what you will feel is your body feeling better because number one, you’re putting some better food in your body.
Hence, the better few foods you have are the better fuel that your body has, so you’re gonna start to feel better. You may even experience a little increase in energy, But those are the main things you’re going to feel during week number one.
Okay, moving on to week two during the second week, that’s when you will start to see some changes in your body and you will start to feel even better than you did on the first week.
Because the second week, the workout started to get a little bit easier okay it should still challenge you but you should be able to get through the workout a lot better than you did during the first week because the first week you’re really sore now you’ve kind of waking up the muscles.
And you should start to get a little bit more efficient in your exercise and also this is a time when your body will start to make those changes like we just discussed. You start to feel your clothes fitting loose, that’s a great feeling, and that’s going to help you get the momentum you need to
Move you on into week three okay, you’re gonna take that momentum that you’ve brought in from week two .That’s when you really start to feel like okay, I can do this you start to set a routine with your nutrition and your exercise. It becomes a part of your daily routine and you start actually to enjoy and look forward to it you may not love it.
Still, you do love the results in the way that it makes you feel, and here’s another side note this is when I usually do get I have an email from a client or call or whatever say hey you know people are starting to take notice like what are you doing I can see that you’ve been losing weight. Hence, week three is when you start to really start to get those compliments and we’ll start to notice that you’ve been losing weight.
Alright, moving on to week four okay and moving into week 4 week four is great because by this time, your full swing you’re firing on all cylinders and when if you’ve been consistent with your training and your nutrition.
You should start to feel like you’re going down in a size of your clothing and that it usually takes about ten pounds of weight loss to go down. The size of clothing and again this is gonna vary from person to person depending if you’re tall you’re short-medium whatever.
But that’s a good rule of thumb and a good marker to be aware of whenever you’re dropping down to a smaller size, but at this point, that’s what you should start to experience during week 1, week 2, week 3, and week 4 now.
I want you to be aware of if you’re at this point and you feel like you’ve been starving yourself or you feel like you’re on a plan that’s not sustainable, guess what that’s not the plan for you now.
