We’ve all heard of the transformation songs. The ones that come to mind when we think of an ideal weight loss track. Maybe it’s Carole King singing “I Feel Wonderful” or “Wind Beneath My Wings” or “You’ll Be Mine” by Diamond Rio. Or maybe it’s a duet between Mariah Carey and Peabo Wang featuring Adam Levine from Maroon 5.
The point is that upon hearing these songs, we instantly think of how different our lives would be if we had lost a few pounds. The question is: Can you change your voice if you lose weight? And if so, how much weight will it take to transform your voice?
The Difference In The Timing
Let’s be honest, we’ve all wished at one point or another that we had the perfect song in mind when we were craving a chocolate bar, or a bag of potato chips, or a bowl of ice cream, or whatever else is on the forbidden diet list. But the catch is, most of us probably didn’t have an ideal song in mind when those cravings hit. We were probably thinking about our work responsibilities or about our family or friends or maybe even about the gym. So while it would be great to have a song to blame when we hit the gym and manage to stick to our diet, it probably wouldn’t serve as much of a motivation tool in the long run.
A Different Kind Of Vocal Toning
The truth is that when you lose weight, your voice will change. This fact probably won’t come as a great surprise to you since you’ve been waiting for this moment for as long as you’ve been overweight. Now that this moment has come, it’s time to embrace it and make the most of it. What does this mean for you? It means that your voice will change, and it will change for the better. This doesn’t mean that it will become an exact copy of the voice of a professional singer, but it does mean that it will be a different kind of voice all together.
For instance, let’s say that you’re a bass player. You play in a band, and you’ve always played bass. Now that you’re on the road to wellness, your bandmates have decided that they want to switch to guitar and drum sets, respectively. As a result, you’ll have to find a new instrument to play, or at the very least learn to play another instrument. But since you’ve been playing bass your whole life, it won’t be difficult for you to find your place in a new band. What’s more is that you’ll be better than ever before. Your bandmates will be able to hear the difference in your playing, and they’ll be grateful for your participation. In short, you’ll be able to change your voice for the better because you’ll be able to take advantage of this wonderful new opportunity.
Unfortunately, there is sometimes more than one obstacle in the way of you and your new you. For instance, let’s say that you’ve always wanted to be a singer. You’ve listened to countless amount of artists, from Adele to Taylor Swift, and now that you’ve lost weight, your dream has come true. It’s time for you to embrace it and you’re not sure how to go about it. Your parents, your teachers, and your friends all told you that you’d never be able to sing. They said that you had nothing in common with the artists that you’d always admired, and that you’d never be able to carry a tune in a bucket. So you decide to ignore them and go for it. In the end, you learn to sing and even end up joining a choir. In short, you change your voice, but it isn’t easy. There are struggles, challenges, and moments of despair before your eyes even as you celebrate your new found ability to sing with pride.
The Difference In The Range
It would be great to lay all of this stress and anxiety to rest and say that your voice will simply change. But here’s the cold, hard truth: sometimes it doesn’t work out that way. Sometimes you’ll still struggle with your voice, much like you did before you started losing weight. What’s more is that sometimes the range will be different as well. Let’s be honest, there are times when you just can’t pull off a high note, or you can’t place your voice in the right place for certain words or melodies. These are the times when your voice will break, often times frustratingly so. What’s more, when this happens, it tends to be worse than before you started losing weight. So while it would be great to have your voice at a place where it can pull off any song ever written, there are times when it just doesn’t feel right. In these moments, it’s best to be honest with yourself and admit that you can’t pull off the note. Then you can work on finding the right place for your voice, and as soon as you do, the world will seem right again.
You Need To Be Careful
You need to be careful when you lose weight. It’s crucial that you make the right adjustments to ensure that everything goes smoothly, and that you don’t end up suffering because of your newfound healthiness. One of the most important things to do is work closely with a personal trainer or a fitness coach. They’ll be able to help you develop a workout routine, and they’ll be able to tell you what supplements and foods to avoid, since they know more about your body than you do. Additionally, make sure to work out three times a week at least. This will help ensure that your body remains in good condition, and it will also help you lose weight. The last thing you want to do is end up gaining back all of the weight that you’ve worked so hard to lose. The best thing you can do for yourself right now is stay healthy.
So there you have it. These are just some of the things that your voice will change for the better. Of course, it will be different depending on your instrument. For instance, if you’re a tenor, it will be considerably different from if you’re a bass player or a soprano. But in general, your voice will change for the better because you’ll be able to take advantage of this wonderful new you that you’ve created. Now that you know what to expect, it’s time to pursue this new you and make the most of this new opportunity that has come your way.
