Patience, patience, patience. It's hard to be patient, but it is a must! No matter your age, if you are trying to make significant changes to your body composition (could be either losing weight or gaining muscle) you must remember that it takes time to do it properly.
While you could go with an alternative method and get results quickly, they are unlikely to be sustainable.
One of the hardest things for people to understand is that significant changes require hard work and time. There is nothing worse than seeing individuals give a program only 2 to 3 weeks and then quit because they aren’t seeing results.
The sad part is that they are on the verge of results because it usually takes at least four weeks for you to see results in the mirror, and even longer for others to see those changes. The point is, stick with it. Those results (once YOU start seeing them) are literally the most motivating tool you could possibly have!
