If you’ve read many of these blogs you’ll hopefully have noticed that I try and keep the central message very simple.

Get in a calorie deficit for weight loss.

Turn up for some Sessions at RISE (or stop messing about and join if you haven’t already –> www.myrise.co.uk/apply) .

And only when we’re doing those is it worth us looking at much more.

Sometimes people respond to this message with “It’s not that simple”.

And, whilst I fully understand that there are other considerations we can make, what’s the benefit of making it any less simple than that if we’re not even doing those things?

It really can be that simple.

Extra complexity isn’t needed until we’ve taken care of the simple.

People then sometimes pivot to what they kind of meant in the first place.

“It’s not that easy”.

And it’s not.

Nothing is.

Nothing is as easy as saying the words that describe it.

Watching our favourite TV program isn’t as easy as saying “Watch your favourite TV program”.

Inhaling a bottle of wine isn’t as easy as saying those words.

Neither is a tub of Pringles or a Dairy Milk on the couch.

And I get the eating in a calorie deficit and turning up to Sessions aren’t as easy as those things.

But they’re probably not as hard as we tell ourselves sometimes.

Nothing is “that easy”.

But that doesn’t mean we can’t do it.

Much love,

P.S. Many people comment that they found clicking this link and taking that first step to be a bigger thing than they expected it. But they then went on to describe it as one of the best things they’ve ever done –> www.myrise.co.uk/apply


RISE in Macclesfield was established in 2012 and specialise in Group Personal Training weight loss programmes for those that don’t like the gym and find diets boring and restrictive!
