We think we are going to stay positive and then that little bit of uncertainty starts to cloud our positive thoughts. It can be about anything, our work, our family skills, just so many things.
When it comes to losing weight it seems like an endless battle. We are always fighting the mental battle over food. Unfortunately we have to eat. Not like cigarettes, alcohol or drugs, which you can quit completely. We can water fast, juice fast, but eventually we have to go back to eating.
There are so many temptations all around us, it’s very hard to stay on track. So many people telling you, just a little bit off this chocolate cake can’t hurt and the next thing you are eating a large slice of cake and then feeling like a complete failure. The next thought that comes into your mind is what’s the use. I’m a failure!
When it comes to losing weight and getting healthy it is a difficult process. You have to change your mental approach to the process. Whether it is fasting, intermitted fasting, juice fasting or some form of dieting you will meet with all forms of resistant either from family, friends or even yourself. Changing the process from a negative to a positive will help you in the process to lose the weight and become healthy and strong.
Probably for years you have been eating for many different reasons, not just when you were hungry.
Maybe you were bored, maybe you were sad, maybe you don’t feel adequate or feel very lonely. Whatever the reasons, being overweight just adds to the problem. We eat for many different reasons, not all because we were hungry. So you have to shift your thinking, start thinking very positive about losing weight. How much better you will feel and look. Ridding yourself of possible health problems. Those are some of the reasons.
Just remember the mind controls the body. If you want to reach your ideal weight and live a healthy lifestyle, you must control your mind. If you start thinking I need something sweet, you have to create a different, more positive mind set. Like that donut will make my stomach feel very heavy, so I think I would like a large glass of ice cold water instead.
Remember the hunger will subside, just give it a little time.
- I will take good care of my body.
- I will feel so much better when I lose the weight.
- I feel satisfied with a large glass of cold water.
- I can lose the weight.
- I am becoming healthier.
- I am ridding my body of all the toxins.
- Eating healthy feels so good.
- I don’t want to get sabotaged.
- I deserve a healthy body.
- I will feel so good about myself.
So use your mind to help you make positive changes to your weight loss journey. You deserve to be healthy and attractive for the rest of your life. Remember how much weight can effect your health. It’s important that you do all you can to prevent illness.
