Weight Loss is All In The Mind

without comments

Weight loss is all in the mind! Well, most of it is, anyway. Following my introductory post “Weight Loss Tips”, which outlined what this blog intends to be all about I think its time to get to work.

This first working post will be getting things started by doing the most important initial part of any kind of weight loss program. That is getting the utmost important part of anyone’s body into the right state of being before anything else is able to happen. Now what part is that?

The mind!

Without your mind in the right state initially, nothing else that you do has much of a chance to work!

That’s a pretty profound kind of statement, but perfctly true. Think on this; when you awaken in the morning and you feel really tired, disoriented, half asleep, what is your preference to do right at that moment?

Would you prefer to get up and go to work, or stay put and go back to sleep a little longer?

See where this is going? It’s about what you want to do, not what you have to do.

With weight loss, things ares no different. There are a load of tips for slimming for a better body out there that need to be dispelled.

When you’re faced with the prospect of “you have to” lose weight, your mind is likely to push against that and want to do the opposite! That’s one of the reasons why so many weight loss programs fail. Its not because the program is flawed in any way – often they work just fine. Its often because the person doing it has the state of mind that regards it as something they have to do instead of something they want to do.

In psychology, there is a similar way of thinking known as the pain and pleasure principle. That says it is instinctive in humans to move away from pain and go toward pleasure.

When a person is faced with something they have to do, it is similar to experiencing pain. A thing that must be endured, or put up with. On the other hand, when faced with something they want to do, its more of a pleasure, because they want to do it!

So when it comes to weight loss, you need to be in the frame of mind that its something you want to do and not something you have to do. Pleasure rather than pain, right?

So how does someone alter their perspective on this?

Well, even if its something that you’ve been told you have to do, for instance if it puts your health at risk, then you need to think of weight loss in terms of the end result being a pleasurable goal to be achieved. That means imagining you being X amount of pounds or kilos lighter making you feel so good. There is a really good and powerful visualization technique that you can use that really works. Of course, you should also work on your I found on another blog in a post. You need habits to reinforce what you’re already doing.

Any weight loss program can work for you when it becomes a thing that you want to do as opposed to something that you have to do. That’s because its a pleasure to do what you want! So turn you’re thinking on its head and see how this first of more tips for weight loss really makes sense if you put it into action right now!
