I’m in no doubt that most of you reading this have a fair idea of how to lose weight – eat less and move more (as Billy Connolly once said!).
But certain things in life are easier said than done – successful weight loss is one of them.
You may have a list of things to change, such as consuming more fruit and vegetables, taking on exercise or buying low fat options.
If, like the majority of people, you have a tough time losing weight and keeping it off – despite your best intentions, what do you think could be getting in the way?
In this article we will be taking a look at how you can reprogram your mind to lose weight successfully – to change your weight, first change your mind…

Sorry, love that song, so I just had to throw it in there somewhere! 🙂
Wanting too much, too fast, is the quickest route I know of to weight loss failure! It’s a sad state of affairs but…weight loss is too slow to satisfy most modern dieters.
Remember that you’ll always get the best results when you lose weight slowly. When you target fast weight loss you are only really losing water or lean tissue, not fat.
Relying on The Genie in The Lamp
Let me ask you a simple enough question – are you the type of individual that is always wishing they were slimmer or fitter?
Well, unfortunately these are the types of people that never really see any sort of positive progress with weight loss.
Wishing you were in a better place is never going to help – you have to stop wishing and do something about your situation.
Wishes will never really come true by themselves – it is up to you to fulfill them!
Half Truths Hurt!
We promote a handful of health and weight loss products on this website but we are EXTREMELY careful with what we stand behind – not all of these glittering prizes are made of gold.
Unfortunately, even weight loss programs with proven and legitimate science behind them seem unwilling to stick to the whole truth.
This can lead to you playing a VERY dangerous game.
You need to be vigilant – very vigilant.
Be aware of programs that take a little bit of truth only to try and turn it into something groundbreaking – this seems to be happening more and more frequently these days.
Keeping a record of weight loss goals is an excellent way to create the correct mindset as long as these goals are realistic.
Write down the overall weight you want to lose, or what size dress/clothing/etc you would like to wear.
From here it is pretty easy to set tiny weekly targets that add up to initial (realistic) weight loss goals.
Be Kind to Yourself
This is probably the most important part of this article so please, please, please pay attention.
None of us are perfect (not even me!) 🙂
You’re going to backtrack sometimes. Everyone does.
It doesn’t matter what it is – a wedding, a stag do, a last minute holiday or cruise, something is going to pop up and throw you off track.
At this point one of two things are going to happen to you…
- You are going to throw your hands up in the air and tell the world how worthless you are…
- You are going to shrug it off and get straight back on track!
So forgive yourself for slip-ups, and then resume your good-living habits. Staying on track is NEVER easy no matter how easy your friend claims it is for him/her (yes we all have that pain in the ass friend!).
Mindset & Motivation Boosters
Always try to think about how far you have come, acknowledge that you’ve hit many little achievements up to this point and reflect on them regularly (you’re doing well – honest you are!).
Keep a journal or find some way of keeping a record – this is an awesome way to stay motivated.
There’s no escaping the written word – when you have a bad day, you can go back and look at a positive day and see what you did well – no thinking involved!
Negative thoughts are natural – everyone gets them…but it’s what we actually DO with them that counts!
STOP any negative thoughts straight away, then try making them positive – or even neutral. 🙂
