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.
