How Your Mindset Affects Your Weight Loss Goal
It all starts in the head, your whole life is determined by what goes on in your head, if your head is right, then it means your life will be right and vice versa
It’s a simple case of the subconscious rules over your life, a perfect example of this argument would be that, have you ever wondered why you do somethings even when you didn’t want to?
Well it is because your subconscious mind does not follow your conscious mind, it overrides it and does what it feels is right, it does what it has programmed without you even knowing, that’s why you need to be careful what you feed your soul.
Most especially our kids, we ought to control what they assimilate at all times. Now the big question, what does this have to do with weight loss, everything, if you believe you can lose weight, then you can, if you believe you can look fabulous and gorgeous then you can.
You just have to be convinced you can and then your subconscious mind picks it up and begins to work towards that which you are convinced you can do, it’s as simple as that.
All of a sudden you start to notice you don’t eat as much as you do, your subconscious mind takes over and does what needs to be done in order for you to lose weight. You may also notice you enjoy doing more activities than you normally used to do
How to reprogram your mind to lose weight
First and foremost you need to change your perception, your perception is what you believe to be true, so you need to believe you can lose weight and look fabulous and dashing like you have always wanted. What you believe, ultimately you will achieve, It may take a while, but just hold on to it
Secondly you need to visualize it, imagine or have a mental picture of the type of body you want etc
Thirdly move or be around like minded people or people who have achieved weight loss in the past or recently, this helps you build up your belief system, because there will be resistance in your mind
Fourthly, you need to understand that it takes time, nothing happens overnight, takes work and effort and time
Lastly you can do affirmations, this helps reinforce your objectives, saying this affirmations over and over again over a period of time embeds it into your subconscious mind, ideally it takes a long time to alter your subconscious mind, so saying affirmations is a good and quick way of reprogramming your mind.
You might be wondering, what type of affirmations can I use for weight loss, well you can basically come up with statements that make sense to you. For example:
I am trim and beautiful
I have a gorgeous body
I look great
I hope you get the picture, it could be any statement that reinforces your need to shed off a few pounds. Just like imagining yourself fitting into a lovely dress. Trust me, this will make you feel good all the way till you get the body you have always desired or dreamt of
