Losing weight and reaching your goal weight can be a challenge, whether it’s 5 or 10 pounds you want to lose. And if you have a deadline where you need to reduce weight quickly, it’s even harder. So you might be wondering, “Is it even realistic to lose 10 pounds in a month?”
Losing 10 pounds in a month is a steep goal, but the good news is, it is doable. Most nutritionists suggest going slowly over longer periods of time. Losing one to two pounds a week is a realistic weight loss goal, and this is a bit over that. But it is possible with the right plan and the right mindset.
Your first step is to be prepared to make substantial changes. These changes and consistency will be needed to hit your weight loss goals in just 30 days.
Why Lose Weight?
In the first place, being obese is associated with serious health issues like high cholesterol, cardiovascular disease, Type 2 diabetes, and some cancers. Carrying extra weight is also linked with increased inflammation and the stress hormone cortisol. Reducing your weight may also help you reduce the amount of medication you are on. So, there are many good reasons to lose weight, whether you are shooting to lose 10 pounds in 30 days or over the course of a year. Being at a healthy weight is essential for your long-term wellness.
