When it comes to weight control your mindset plays as big a role as your diet and exercise routine, in fact without a positive weight loss mindset your diet and exercise are doomed for failure. This article shares how you can build a strong and supportive mindset that will make controlling your weight easy and long lasting.
1. Constantly remind yourself why it is important to control your weight. when you lose focus of why you enjoy being thin or why it is important you make yourself vulnerable to caving in to cravings. Every day take a few minutes to remind yourself why you love being thin or better yet write it down and post it where you will see it often.
2. Build your belief. do you believe you will be able to control your weight? if you hesitate at all in answering this question then you will need a mindset boost. The truth is that many people maintain their weight loss and control their weight and it is something you can do.
3. Commit to one thing. Identify that one thing that works for you and commit to it. does keeping a food journal help you control your weight or maybe exercising regularly? Then make this a commitment, it might not always be possible to do everything right but as long as this key element keeps going you will stay in control.
4. be willing to deal with frustration. There will always be unexpected treats or days when your weight goes up even though you had been good. if you allow these frustrations to get to you it will negatively affect your weight. take a deep breath and remind yourself that this too shall pass.
Keep your weight in control by getting your mindset in the right place.
