It's time to come face to face with some of the realities about getting fit. It is not all glitz and glam like you might see in a lot of fitness pictures. What truly goes into getting healthy is physically grueling and an emotional roller coaster for a lot of people. Everyone faces different challenges along their fitness journey, but here are 8 brutally honest truths about getting fit that might help prepare you along the way.

When your trying to get fit, it's difficult to say no to all the unhealthy distractions. Friends, moms, co-workers all seem to want to sabotage your efforts. You have to learn to say NO! You have GOALS and they will understand when they see your results.
I said "acquaintances" and not friends, because your friends will stay with you through all this. If not, get some new friends that care about you and your health.
Getting fit is not an easy task, you truly have to put in the effort to see the results you are expecting. You will sweat, you will be sore, you will be exhausted, you will look gross at the gym, you will doubt yourself, you will want to quit, you will want to cheat on your diet - BUT you push past the pain if you want it bad enough and you will see results in no time at all. It will all be worth it!
5. YOU WILL DOUBT YOURSELF AND WANT TO QUIT
You will face many struggles along the way. You will have to reach deep within yourself and find the strength to push forward with the most committed stubbornness you've ever had. You will want instant results and the results won't show fast enough. Fight through it, compare pictures of yourself because that's where you see it most. Don't doubt yourself and stick to your plan and you WILL see the remarkable results of your hard work.
6. YOU WILL GAIN UNEXPECTED AMOUNTS OF SELF-CONFIDENCE
As you embrace more positive truths about getting fit, you will gain confidence along the way. You will become physically and mentally stronger throughout your journey. That will transfer over to many other parts of your life. You will know that you can have a vision and make that vision a reality by being persistent.
7. YOU MIGHT NEED A NEW WARDROBE
You might need to go get some new clothes to show off that new lean, curvey body - not a bad problem to have!
8. WHEN YOU SEE RESULTS, IT REALLY DOES BECOME AN ADDICTION
The struggle with getting fit is usually the most difficult in the beginning. If you can just get started, then you are well on your way to fit. The fun part begins when you start seeing results. The fat melting off and your body tightening up. Once you see yourself transforming, it becomes an addiction! And it makes you push even harder because you know what it takes!
