Weight Loss: Weight Loss is All in Your Mind!
By Ashley Green
"The kind of thoughts that you plant in your mind, determine what you produce in life." Letting negative thoughts rule your mind can never make you achieve your goal. The magic key is to identify these negative thoughts which are keeping you away from your goal, keep throwing them out of your head as soon as they try to overpower you, brainstorm new positive thoughts (your inspirations and motivations), write them down and keep reading them until they don't become a part of you.
If negative thoughts like i will always be fat, i just don't have discipline to follow a healthy diet, or exercises are not meant for me as they are too hard and time consuming, keep you from losing weight, then you are not alone. But some of these same people eventually lose weight, reach their goal because they decide to fight, they decide to overcome their negative thoughts, THEY DECIDE THEY WILL MAKE IT HAPPEN. The idea here is to be focused and overcome your negative thoughts because everyone of us deserves to lead a healthy life.
Tip: Enjoy the journey and you will definitely reach your destination.
First of all, imagine the life after you lose weight. It might make you feel more confident at work, sexier to your spouse, so energetic with your kids and above all, will give you eternal happiness. Right down your reasons to lose weight and keep it in your wallet, stick it at your desk or on your fridge. Its obvious that when you are trying to change your behavior, you might experience stress, anger, sadness or depression. Instead of finding poor substitutes like alcohol, video games, shopping, television etc, you can fight these experiences. Fight in the sense, that whenever these negative aspects occupy your mind, just catch hold of them and throw them out. It isn't as easy as it sounds BUT THEN NOT EVEN IMPOSSIBLE.
Most of us know what we have to do in order to lose weight but only few of us can actually lose weight. Why? Why are not you able to do it? Because bridging the gap between knowledge and action requires mental strength, requires you to get in control of your life completely and don't allow external factors like depression, anger, sadness to rule your life. Getting in control will not only help you lose weight but will help you in every sphere of life.
Fact: Weight loss is 90% mental and most programs don't address mental strength training in their training schedule and hence it accounts for their failure. If you are tired of mundane weight loss programs, tired of trying various supplements which don't fetch you results and you end up weighing the same, then its time for you to try something new.
Make losing weight an enjoyable endeavour. It requires commitment, goal setting and planning. Stick on to wall your specific goal, goal date, reason to lose weight, life once you lose weight and read it every morning. Be loyal to yourself and there's nothing which can stop you from losing weight. Wish you all the best in your endeavour!
