Do you want to lose weight? One weight loss secret that healthy, fit women who’ve lost pounds know is…
THEY BELIEVE WHOLEHEARTEDLY IN THEIR ABILITY TO LIVE HEALTHY!
One thing in this life that I do know is that belief is everything.
Believing that you are capable of accomplishing a specific goal or goals is powerful.
Better yet, it’s life changing!
With all that said, go to a nearby mirror and ask yourself, “Do I believe in myself to lose weight?”
Don’t think about it; answer with the first thing that pops into your head.
So was your immediate response…
Yes, I can! OR Yeah… I mean, I guess so
If your immediate response was the former, you get a shiny gold star!
If your immediate response was the latter, then your belief system needs a tune up.
Regardless of which manner you answered, while embarking on this weight loss journey, PLEASE understand that there will be pitfalls along the way that will test your belief system.
That’s why it is imperative that you are willing to do these 5 crucial things to sharpen your belief like a Ginsu blade:
1. Push past your “weight” discomfort zone
Scared to go the gym in fear that people will gawk at your over-weightness?
Guess what… it’s a 99.9% chance they won’t.
Overcoming your fears of what people think of your weight issue is a necessary adjustment.
To be brutally honest, most people don’t even care that you’re trying to lose weight (Of course, I do), so worrying about what they think is futile.
2. Get in shape to ONLY impress yourself, not anyone else
Time and time again, people want to lose weight or get in better shape to gain someone’s affection or approval.
This is not a “how to get a girlfriend/boyfriend” article but realize the following thing:
Nobody will fully accept or respect you until you respect yourself.
Men, most women actually find a man who has a chiseled physique appealing, but they find a man who has self-confidence, a good sense of humor, and intelligence even more attractive.
Ladies, while most men admire a woman who takes care of her body, he also wants a woman who is caring, can cook and respects his space (especially when football is on).
My point is that while getting a great body could potentially attract that person that interests you, you still have to develop your self-worth in order to maintain a healthy relationship.
3. Get in shape because you want to, not your doctor
The next reason ties in with the first motive except that instead of losing weight to impress someone, you’re doing it because appease someone.
In this case, that appeasing person is your doctor.
Now most people would think that this reason is justified because people should get in shape because their doctor told them that they got pre-diabetes.
And guess what? You’re absolutely right except for one small nugget:
That person has to willingly want to make that change.
Doctors around the world are always advising people to eat a well-balanced, nutritious diet, exercise throughout the week, avoid tobacco use, seldom drink alcohol, take a multivitamin, and always be happy.
Yet, for some reason, many people are overweight, smoking, not exercising enough (or at all), eating poorly, excessively drinking alcohol, not taking a multivitamin, and depressed beyond belief.
Why is that? Because those people aren’t WILLING to change their lifestyle behavior.
Even some doctors do not practice what they preach!
When you learn that you have type-2 diabetes or high-blood pressure, you need to immediately start a weight-loss program.
Still, what use is a weight-loss program if you do not care to utilize it?
Not even a licensed health professional such as a doctor can convince (or scare) you into living a healthy lifestyle if you do not have the will to.
You have to have a strong desire to get in shape in order to be in shape.
4. Block negative junk from your mind
As you embark on this weight loss journey, understand that we live in the social media age where B.S. runs amuck.
With all the negative blogging, “Instagram-ing”, “Facebook-ing”, and tweeting that occurs on a daily basis, no wonder most people fall off the weight loss wagon.
I strongly recommend that you turn off your smartphone at least 30 minutes a day and get away from the madness.
5. Practice 30 days of consistency to change your behavior
A wise man once told me “If you do anything for 21 days straight, it will become a habit.”
Add nine more days and he is absolutely right! Doing any activity for a month straight definitely sharpens your belief system towards that endeavor beyond…. belief.
While some people are born with an innate self-confidence, most of us are not so lucky.
It’s essential that you continuously practice changing your behavior to accomplish your weight loss goal.
Therefore, eating better and staying active for 30 consecutive days will greatly aid your pursuit for a slimmer figure.
