It Takes Dedication!
Nothing in life that is worth having is easy to come by, and there is no more applicable statement to losing weight! It takes dedication to your diet, dedication to your new fitness regime, and lifelong dedication to always strive to live your best life and be the best person you can be. Dedication is not easy, but if the end result is a thinner, fitter, healthier you, than the hard work that comes with dedication is worth it.
Dedication to your diet is not easy. Life seems to revolve around food, and the center of most of our social gatherings involve food in one way or another. This doesn't make will-power regarding food any easier. But dedication is required to be the best you. Being dedicated enough to eat right 90% of the time should be enough to give you the body and health you're striving for, while still allowing you the occasional indulgence. Most nutritionists adhere to the mantra of "everything in moderation", and that's because deprivation will only lead to failure.
Dedication is also an absolute necessity when it comes to being fit. Weight loss and whole-body toning can only be attained through regular workouts, dedication to a combination of cardio and weight training. A minimum of intense workouts 3 days is a must. Finding ways to be active the other 3-4 days a week is the aspect that's going to take you to the next level. This type of dedication is hard work, but is worth it.
