It takes your body about 7 minutes to warm up when doing cardio exercise. Keeping this in mind makes it easier for me to push past the urge to quit at the begining of the workout, and after this initial warm-up I'm good to go
I have found that listening to you body and eating only when your hungry and then stopping when the hunger is gone is the best way to loose weight despite the amount of calories you are suppose to take in. as long as all the food you eat is very healthy and whole. No junk food.
It takes time for the body to accept smaller portions and healthier food as "normal". However, until it does, eating this way will feel challenging. My own body took 3 months to reach the point when I just felt too full to finish what had previously been a "normal" helping.
This taking time for the body to adapt to a NEW normal of smaller portions and healthier food is a big part of why successful weightloss doesn't happen quickly. Be patient - your body IS changing!
