So many of us go about losing weight by focusing on cutting calories or cutting out food groups.
Trim Down Club is not about deprivation, but rather sound food choices. We also tend to focus on getting in more exercise. While this is a component in the weight loss journey, it’s about making the right exercise choices and really challenging yourself. Add to that the fact that if for any of these elements you aren’t fully invested; it’s not going to help you make the changes that you are after. If you are simply going through the motions but don’t truly believe in yourself, then success will not be yours.
More and more people are starting to recognize the power of the mindset and of positive thinking for weight loss. If you are constantly defeating yourself and saying that you can’t do it or that it’s too hard, then your results will align with your thinking. You must be determined, dedicated, motivated, and confident that you can do it—and that you will stay committed to the right plan for helping you to lose the weight and keep it off. That means that you must invest the same mental power in your weight loss journey as you do physical change. That’s how you achieve success!
You will find that one of the most important mental aspects of losing weight is motivation. Did you fall off track before because you couldn’t stay motivated? Were you lacking the initiative that you needed to make it past a plateau or major obstacle? Did you start strong but then fizzle off as the diet seemed to fall flat? If any of these sound familiar, then you know firsthand how important motivation can be in a weight loss journey. So let’s get started and get focused on why the mental aspects of losing weight are so important. Understanding and applying these lessons can ensure that this time is truly different and that it’s all about success!
Think About How to Make This Time Different
Many people struggle with losing weight or keeping it off. The reason is that in many respects, they are simply going through the motions. It’s not enough to just cut calories or increase your fitness quota. Though diet and exercise play a pivotal role in your ability to take the weight off, they can only take you so far. Focusing only on those two elements probably got you to a certain point in the past and then a plateau or obstacle appeared and wreaked havoc on your plans.
When thinking of starting another diet or trying to stick with what you’re on, it can be easy to get distracted. Hunger, boredom, temptation, and discouragement have probably been constant threats to your past efforts, and it might have been hard to stay on track or even get started. Maybe you even succeeded a couple of times, only to find it didn’t last. But with the right tools and support – including from your own self – you can reach your ultimate goal: the forever kind of health!
Weight loss may be the temporary and achievable goal, but better health is the longer term goal that we should all be working towards. When you lose weight and maintain a healthy weight range, you are at less of a risk of developing certain health conditions. Not only that, but you look better, feel better, have more energy, and can take on life with more vigor and zest.
So if in the past you only worked towards quick weight loss, make this time count and ensure that the big picture is really focused on better health. If you can tune into the mental aspects of losing weight and ensure that your efforts are centered on the long-term, then you will make a very necessary change. That’s what can make this time different and make it last! Though you may not be so convinced, if you really think about it, this may have been the one aspect missing from your efforts in the past.
