If you feel that you have tried every weight loss program under the sun, suffered every exercise regime known to man and beast and listened to every fitness guru spout there wares – and yet still cannot lose weight – then it might be time for a check-up from the neck-up.
To lose weight successfully takes time, perseverance and self esteem – these traits, above knowing the latest diet fad are the key traits.
I see so many people say they want to lose weight. They talk about it every day. Every opportunity they get they say how unhappy they are with their size, their hips, their gut, their butt… and yet the next time I see them they are still saying the same thing.
Do you use some of these excuses?
- I do not have time to eat healthily.
- Eating healthily is just too expensive.
- I have a slow metabolism.
- All my family are overweight so it is genetic.
The most important thing that you need to understand is that obsessing about weight loss is the most dangerous thing you can do. It is just another kind of worry.
There is one simple change you need to make in your life to lose weight – And if you make this change you will be on the road to a slimmer, healthier you… and that change is to make the act of losing weight right at the top of your list of priorities.
You see – most people who want to lose weight talk about it a lot, but they still have not given it sufficient priority – It is simply not as important to them as the enjoyment they get from eating comfort food, or the feeling they get when they believe they have saved themselves some time by eating fast food.
The answer is to make the actions you take to lose weight MORE important and give you a greater feeling of pleasure than the action of doing things that make you lose weight.
Take time to congratulate yourself every time you take a small step in the right directions, and slap yourself hard every time you slip back.
Every time you reach for a piece of fruit as a snack instead of the pretzels, say to yourself how delicious it is, much you are enjoying it, and how much it is helping towards your goal of living a healthier lifestyle.
LOOK – Habits are built on repetition, and they are self reinforcing… the more you eat junk or overeat, the more you will do it in the future. However, each time you resist the temptation of falling back to bad habits it fortifies you for the next time you get the urge to "slip".
So, tell yourself that you are not a quitter, make yourself a promise that tomorrow is a new day and it all starts from there and change your habits NOW.
