The biggest misconception is going on the belief that we need to change the way we look in order to fit in society. This will always lead to failure as you set expectations in yourself, motivated in the beginning but losing interest down the road. In turn, opening the flood gates of depression and self pity for not meeting your own expectations.
The real change actually comes from within, where changing your perception on physical wellness to a more practical and healthier mindset. This makes for a physical component integrated into ones lifestyle. Keeping in mind that physical wellness can be an array of different fun filled engaging fitness activities.
For individuals who enjoy lifting weights and are not planning to become power lifters, lift weights that allow for full range of motion and complete control. Lifting weights that are too heavy will not yield the greatest results and may cause injury.
Over a period of time, you will feel healthier, look healthier and most importantly be happy with your results.
