How Results Happen

One thing we know for sure, they never seem to happen fast enough, do they?

It seems we fight for every inch of weight lost and every pound dropped.

And frankly, we can get discouraged.

I saw some before/after picture of a client recently who just crossed the 100 pounds lost mark, which is just an incredible achievement. But if you ask her she would tell you it was really hard to gauge her progress day-by-day. She fought that mind gain by setting small goals and taking a new picture every time she reached it. The results is a dramatic picture diary of what she looks like now compared to then.

Coach John Romaniello included this graphic in one of his latest newsletters. It outlines, IN ORDER, how results really happen.


You can’t cheat this order. You know it to be true. You know you are picking up more weight and getting your heart rate up higher, but the scale just doesn’t seem to budge.

Two things you need:

  1. Patience
  2. A body comp analysis AKA “The Truth Detector” (Your scale is lying to you) 🙂

This fat loss and muscle gain thing takes time. You are in it for the long game. When you are working hard in the gym, eating right for you, and getting enough sleep things WILL happen.

Keep Making It Happen!
