Do You Make These Mistakes in Weight Loss?
Did you know that the biggest obstacle to losing weight is a psychological one?
If you are hoping for a successful outcome to your weight loss efforts, don’t make any long-term resolutions or wild promises to yourself. Losing weight, or just plain fat, is actually a concern you have about your appearance and health. And if you want a positive response, it will require a certain amount of self-denial and self-deprivation. There is no magic, no excitement, but plenty of hard work ahead if you want to reach your goal.
A recent survey conducted by The Weight Loss Clinic, found that more than 75% of people, aged between 20 and 50 who make weight loss plans at the start of each new year, reported only occasional success – and in some cases no success at all!
Those who did succeed at losing weight, and maintaining the loss, were motivated by a dream much bigger and more positive than just losing weight. They saw themselves living a healthy lifestyle, in good physical shape, and confronted the problem head on, acknowledging being FAT, and not just overweight.
If you are able to get your mind in the same gear, it could be the beginning of a successful weight loss plan.
Another psychological hurdle for you could be that deep down you are actually afraid to begin a weight loss plan.
You might have a mistaken idea that losing weight is all about will power, which you may feel is not your strong point, and that you could be setting yourself up for failure. If this is you, the problem is quite possibly not your will power. Psychologically it could be preconceived attitudes about who you are, who you can be, and who you really want to be.
The solution lies in learning to create a new image of yourself that is not defined by any old ideas. Once you have a vision of the new you in your mind, and a fresh, positive attitude, you will succeed in breaking out of your fat box to become the confident person you want to be – at the weight that you choose to be!
