Wear The Right Attitude

When you choose to lose weight, you are signing up for a major change in your life, and change cannot happen with a negative attitude or with negative thoughts plaguing your mind.

For change to take effect, you have to stay positive, believe in it, and trust that it will transform your life into a better place, and you are worth that transformation.

What you think is important for any weight loss program to work because your thoughts affect the way you feel, which in turn reflects in your actions that ultimately is responsible for actual weight loss.

Be Bold, Be Beautiful, Be Yourself

It is natural for someone striving to lose weight to dread the weighing scale, shun the cameras, hide in dressing rooms, fear shopping sprees, and avoid public outings. These destructive habits will only hamper your progress, even set your weight loss back.

As willing as you are to change your lifestyle and reduce your weight, you have to believe in the beautiful you that the world loves to see.

Constant positive and constructive self-talk is a wonderful way to achieve this. Don’t hold yourself back waiting for your turn to live your life for when you achieve your weight loss goal, but be bold and live as though you already have.

Acknowledge Why You Eat

Have you ever wondered why you go binge eating during weekends, reach for an extra bag of crisps right after a full meal, or find yourself in front of a fridge in the middle of the night?

Knowing why you eat unlocks lots of questions about yourself and makes it easier for you to achieve weight loss.

People eat for any number of reasons other than just being hungry – when they are anxious, sad, depressed, lonely, stressed, or plain bored.

Why do you eat? Be brutally honest, and you will have the power to address the reason head on and eliminate the trigger without reaching for food instead.

Shut Down Your Guilt

Weight loss is not a toss-up between ‘dieting’ and ‘die eating’. ‘Foods to avoid’ has a negative tone to it and must therefore be gleefully struck off every weight loss initiative.

This simple step legalizes food, stops you from feeling deprived, and eliminates any need for guilt, bouts of depression, and the vicious cycle of starting, ending, and re-starting a weight loss schedule.

Make a conscious and informed choice about the food you eat. When the decision to eat or avoid rests solely with you, the motivation to do right by your weight loss regimen becomes a strong possibility.

And even if you give in to temptation and reach for the sinful pastry, consider it a personal time-off for good behavior, feel fabulous about what you have achieved so far and get on right back to achieving more.

Go In For The Long Haul

Slow and steady is the most assured way to lose weight. Any quick fix solution to weight loss problems is only temporary and most often you bounce back putting on more weight than you originally lost.

Weight loss should be reflection of a change in lifestyle – doing the little things the right way. For example, hitting the gym twice a week because you love to, instead of making it into a chore you have to do for losing weight.

Be flexible with your schedule and goals. Rigidity calls for strict adherence which invariably leads to stress and even guilt if you stray from the set path. Spread the weight loss plan to cover your entire life, stay invested by making small every day changes, and leading a healthy life.

Make it About Health And Fitness

Finally and most importantly, making weight loss more about becoming healthy and staying fit than about the inch loss or the number of pounds you drop to look physically beautiful is a key step to follow in how to change your mindset about weight loss.

Being healthy should be a work in progress supported by sound decisions, proper eating habits, regular exercise, positive mindset, and happy outlook towards life.

  1. Hi Chris
    Excellent tips on changing your mindset when it comes to loosing weight.

    I tend to go all gun ho on this exercise regimen of mine.I am very strict and insist on my wife and I to stick to a schedule.

    The problem with this is that it is militant, and not flexible, which does not make it enjoyable.

    As you said, reward yourself and this is also something that I do not do.I see it as cheating, or putting all your efforts down the drain.

    I especially like the fact of you mentioning that we should see it in a light of health, rather than loosing inches.

    I did not see it that way, I am going to try these steps of yours.

    Will let you know how it goes.
    Take Care

  2. Hi Chris,
    I would agree with you 100% that the first step is having a positive attitude. Sometimes I think people just want the results without having the right mindset to accomplish it. I’ve found creating smaller goals helps in getting you to where you can go for that ultimate goal that you set your sights on. Great insight in the article!

  3. Losing weight is one of the hardest things we as humans have to deal with. You’ve given some real insight into the struggle and some great tips and links for how to achieve it. The mindset aspect is SO important and people really need to remember that their health should always be at the top of the list of reasons to do it. We all care about the way we look, at some level so that is also very important. Thanks for your insights! 🙂

  4. Great article! I feel like taking the first step towards loosing weight is the biggest and the most important step. I also really like the part about acknowledging why you eat. Sometimes I do exactly what you said in your article: reach for a bag of chocolates after a meal when i feel full or stop by the fridge in the middle of the night. It’s so important to know why you are eating and also why you want to loose weight. Your WHY should be bigger than your HOW and then you will be successful. Great article and greta website!!

    1. I like that – ‘Your WHY should be bigger than your HOW and then you will be successful.’ Best comment I’ve received today! 🙂

  5. Hey there, I’m back again. This is probably the best article of yours i’ve read so far. Losing weight is definitely a long and grueling process. For many people the hardest part is sticking with it. Your article is great for those who struggle with that. Your principles can also be applied to almost anything in life, not just weight loss. Good content.

  6. Great article that you have written here Chris! When I read it, I felt that you are writing about my journey in losing my extra pounds – it hasn’t exactly been an easy one (so far!)

    Here are all the pointers, tips and advice that were thrown to me by my personal trainer, exercise buddy and others exercise enthusiast. Although my mindset is just equally similar with what’s written in this article, while I am still diligently losing the extra pounds, I found it annoying to people who have the opposite mindset.

    I think I want to share this article with them – show them what the right path is. Thanks for this great article. I love it!

    1. Hi there Syikien,

      It sounds like you were able to take a great deal from this article – really pleasing to hear! Mindset is probably the hardest part of successful weight loss, not everyone is going to have the same high levels of dedication.

      Please feel free to share the article with whoever you want!

      Great speaking with you.
