It’s time to get real with all of you. Losing weight is HARD, especially when you want to lose 10 pounds or more!
You have to adjust what you eat and how much you eat, you have to get SWEATY by working out more, and what could be the hardest part is just being consistent!
It can seem pretty intimidating, right?
Don’t worry, we’ve worked with thousands and thousands of people who think the exact same thing. What we always tell these people to do is focus on LOSING JUST 10 POUNDS! Because when that happens, these 10 incredible things will happen.
The amount of weight and fat you carry around your belly actually plays a huge role in the health of your heart.
According to a 2011 study published in The Journal of Cardiology, those with “beer bellies” or “spare tires around their waists” have an increased risk of heart disease.
But when you lose just 10 pounds or 5-10% of your body weight, you can greatly reduce your risk of heart attacks, stroke, and other cardiovascular diseases.
Your heart has done a lot for you (it’s keeping you alive), so it’s time to show your love for your heart by shedding those pounds 🙂
Studies show that losing 10 pounds can drop your blood pressure by nearly 10%! In addition to that, as you climb down that scale your cholesterol climbs down from that scale, with you!
Both of these things will help you live a healthier life and give you the extra boost to go and do the things you used to do. FEEL YOUNG AGAIN! 🙂
Imagine walking around your neighborhood with a backpack full of heavy rocks (sounds miserable and pointless, if you ask me)
Now, imagine being forced to wear that heavy backpack EVERYWHERE you go. How do you think your body would like that? My guess is that your back would start hurting, your knees would feel the extra stress, and overall, it would be extremely tiring.
A study done at the John Hopkins Arthritis Center tell us that “being only 10 pounds overweight increases the force on the knee by 30-60 pounds with each step.” That’s like carrying around that heavy backpack everywhere!
Now just imagine how you would feel taking that 30-60 pounds of extra pressure off your knees, back, and other joints. Lose just 10 pounds and that feeling can be yours!
There is nothing worse than having one of those bad days where you feel absolutely exhausted, climb into bed, anddddd you cannot fall asleep.
Lying in bed, staring at the ceiling, and wanting to go to sleep is not the way you want to live your life because the next day will finally come, and you will not want to get out of bed.
Harvard Medical School (yes, a school full of geniuses) ran a study on what happens to your sleep patterns when you lose weight, and they discovered that “weight loss reduced sleep apnea and improved sleep quality.”
So quit dreaming about catching some Zzzs and actually dream while getting your Zzzs! (Super cheesy, but it’s so true!)
Did you know that diabetes now affects 415 million people worldwide? What’s even scarier is that of that 46% of the population have diabetes, but don’t even know it.
We all know the harmful things that diabetes can do to your body and that’s why I love what happens to your body when you lose just 10 pounds.
Researchers over at the John Hopkins Research Center found that losing just 5-10% of your body weight can significantly decrease your risk of developing diabetes by 57%!
Heidi’s Hint: Losing the first 10 pounds doesn’t mean you have to starve yourself with every meal. With the help of The Transform App, you can enjoy DELICIOUS meals like the one below and lose weight!
Losing just 10 pounds does WONDERS for your confidence. Your clothes start to feel a little looser, you start to like looking in the mirror again, and your body positivity increases.
When this happens, studies show that you feel more attractive and sexier, which can increase your drive and improve your sex life.
As you start losing weight, your organs and internal processes will start to work more efficiently. This is because you’ll be slowly be cleansing your body of the visceral fat that surrounds your stomach and organs. This fat can be harmful to your organs and increases your chances of heart disease and type two diabetes.
Now that’s how your body gets cleansed, but what about your mind? One of the most dangerous things that can happen to you is constantly thinking negative thoughts about your body.
It can be a daily beating, and it can be detrimental to your happiness.
Once you lose that first 10 pounds, you’ll start noticing differences in how you look (can be looser clothing, no acne, vibrant skin), which can battle those dangerous negative thoughts.
Shredding pounds will not only help you look great on the outside but will help you FEEL great on the inside!
Raise your hand if this is you…
You’re going about your business running from place to place and then WHAM. It hits you…
You’re overcome with feelings of exhaustion and your mind races to find the nearest coach for a nap. Knowing that your day is full and you don’t have time for it, you grab a caffeinated soda or coffee and trudge through the rest of the day. Your eyes continue to close as you begrudgingly go throughout your day.
If that has ever been you it’s time to listen up! Here’s the solution for you 🙂
By losing just 10 pounds you can SKYROCKET your energy levels during the day because your body learns how to use oxygen more efficiently. In addition when you are burning fat you are producing 2.5 times more energy compared to burning carbs or proteins.
Losing just 10 pounds can have a HUGE effect on the way your body is able to function for the rest of your life.
The longer you carry those extra pesky pounds, the more your joints, organs, and body have to work overtime.
One study we LOVE shows that if a woman who is considered obese loses weight (in a healthy amount of time) and gets into a healthy BMI range, she can expect to live 2 YEARS LONGER!
Imagine all the extra hours you can have playing with your kids and grandkids, spending time with those you love, and experiencing the world with those additional 2 years! I mean, just look at my boys. I want to be with them as long as I can!
Name one person, besides Uncle Ebenezer Scrooge, who doesn’t want to be happy…
Happiness is something everyone craves because it is the thing that helps us love life in the good times, and it also helps us power through the bad times.
Now, more than ever, millions of people are battling sadness, depression, anxiety, and other mental issues on a daily basis that has huge implications on all other areas of their lives.
A 6-month study that followed people on their weight loss journey reported that participants who successfully lost weight showed “SIGNIFICANT” reduction in their symptoms of depression,” which helped them feel better not only mentally, but physically.
And the best part of losing just 10 pounds? It leads you to LOSE EVEN MORE!! Just look at Reyven’s transformation! She started out with losing just 10 pounds and look at her now! 🙂
