Losing weight can be a sensitive issue. Maybe you feel bad because of all the failed diets, the exercise routines you didn’t stick to, or you just get depressed and here comes a lack of motivation to keep trying. Whatever your reasons for hating the topic of losing weight, you should know it is possible to reach and maintain your target weight in a new way. But first, if you want a different result, you need to be prepared to look at losing weight in a DIFFERENT way!
In this article, you are going to get some helpful and well-proven tips tens of thousands of our clients used to lose weight without diets. Such an important goal requires effort, but it doesn’t have to be hard or unpleasant – and this is exactly what all the following advice will help you see.
- Get Your Mind In The Right State
This is the first and most important thing! All success in life starts with being enthusiastically focused on a compelling outcome. But no one can be very focused if you’re stressed or anxious or too “busy” in your head. The way human beings work is that your state of mind (mood/emotions) controls your thoughts. Then, your thoughts control a lot of your actions. So if you want to reach and keep any goal, you have to control your thoughts and actions about that goal. Beating yourself up or being overly hard on yourself isn’t useful. The very best way to get the right perspective is with hypnosis – which will give you the tools to become much more relaxed so you can use the power of your unconscious mind and imagination to be positive and go after what you want to achieve.
- Get Your Expectations In Line!
You have to make peace that you aren’t going to lose 20 pounds in the next 5 minutes, then feel bad about yourself when you fail to do that. ALL success is s series of well executed, small steps toward a compelling outcome. You need to accept and expect that your success in losing weight will happen the same way. Small steps, consistently done and executed well. Take stress and pressure off yourself by rejecting the idea you have to make huge changes or implement big differences in your lifestyle. See yourself stepping into a more relaxed and sensible way of approaching losing weight. It’s a lot better to exercise 10 minutes a day than zero. If you can’t do an hour but you can do 10 minutes, go for it. It all counts!
- Avoid The Pitfalls Of Bad Habits
Everyone has them – bad habits. In this case, you might be someone who likes to mindlessly snack when you watch TV. Or you make a lot of stops at fast-food places. But you see, habits have to serve you or benefit you in some way or you wouldn’t have them. Most people overeat or eat unhealthy food because they simply want some emotional relief from stress. Effectively curbing your appetite can be done by avoiding the need to change how you feel with food… that leads to eating habits you don’t want. Instead of ignoring your stress level, or putting everyone else first (which are both bad habits!) consider becoming more balanced in how you take care of yourself and the priorities you set up.
- Make Room For Health
One of the biggest reasons why people fail to stick to a healthy with and lifestyle is because their expectations need some adjustment! If you keep doing the same things and thinking the same things but expect something different to happen…. well… that won’t work!
You need to accept a new way of thinking: that dieting isn’t necessary, stress or negative emotions are the triggers, and you can be very successful taking it one step at a time. Don’t make the same mistakes and set yourself up for the same failure. In fact, be proud of every pound you lose, as you keep a relaxed focus on losing the next pound. Go ahead and imagine what it’s going to be like fit back into those old jeans! Look forward to a new bathing suit this summer! Keep your focus on how good you feel about yourself a little more every day.
- Choose Exercise You Really Enjoy
It doesn’t really matter how you like to get aerobic, as long as you give those muscles and heart a good workout every now and again. And if you want to stay motivated to continue exercising, go with activities you can really get into and fun doing.
And remember, losing weight is as much a mental challenge as it is physical. Find that balance and you find your success.
