Do you feel it is impossible to lose weight? If you failed many times, it is natural to believe so. However it is definitely possible to lose weight. So many people have been successful. There is no reason why you should not be too successful. The problem is people make it complex for themselves. Weight loss can be easy if you follow certain principles.
It is natural to lose weight if you follow certain principles. Just like you build muscles by exercising everyday. If you exercise properly everyday, muscles will certainly build up. Is there any reason why it would not happen? Similarly, following certain principles should definitely make you lose pounds.
First Step – Positive Belief
First and foremost, you should believe weight loss is possible. People remember past failures and expect same outcome. This is a big mistake they make. Here is a simple trick if you do not believe you can succeed. Start saying to yourself that you have changed.
Whenever you recall past failures, just repeat this to yourself. You might have quit a diet plan in the middle. Say to yourself that earlier you were like that. Now you have changed and can complete any program you start. Repeatedly saying this to yourself would aid in getting rid of the doubts. Now memories of past failures would stop bothering you.
List negative behaviors of your past which hurt your efforts . Note them down on a piece of paper. Now read it out aloud. At the same time state that you are now changed. You no longer be in such a fashion. Do this everyday until you start believing this.
Second Step – Do it Anyway
Once you have developed belief, advance to second step. Second step involves developing the habit of – "doing it anyway." This habit is very very essential for success. When following any weight loss program, there will be mood swings. During. On some days, you will not feel like exercising. You may not want to cook healthy meals. Once in a while, you would not want to control yourself.
Most people slip away during such moments. But if you want to succeed, you should not do so. No matter how you feel, you should do the required things anyway. Do not feel like exercising? Do it anyway. Do not want to eat healthy foods today? Eat it anyways.
Do you feel like going to work every morning? Still you go everyday, is not it? When we consider a task as important, we will do it anyhow. We will usually ignore how we feel. We do it even when we do not want to. Same should be the case with weight loss.
Focus on what you have to do . Stop focusing too much on how you feel. Do not wait to take action until you are in the mood. Start focusing on actions rather than feelings. This will aid you become consistent. This is an important trait for succeeding in any field.
Change yourself by taking small steps. Pick one task related to weight loss which you want to avoid. Then do the task anyway. Notice how you feel after getting it done. It will feel nice, is not it? Get familiar with this feeling – its your friend. Its the feeling you get when you take action, regardless of your mood.
After developing the above 2 habits, you can follow any weight loss program. You can now achieve success you have been trying for. Let me point out these 2 trains again. They are – positive belief, and taking action regardless of your feelings.
