Effective weight management has got as much to do with the mind as it does with the body. In fact, weight-loss first starts in the mind.
You alone choose your thoughts and decide between what is and what isn’t possible for you to achieve. You can’t control what happens in life, but you do have a big say in how you respond and how you feel. So reaching and maintaining your preferred weight is dependent on changing how you think and feel about yourself and your behaviours around food.
You will achieve and maintain your ideal weight if you believe it’s possible and you’re 100% committed to making it happen.
If you’re not 100% committed ask yourself, ‘What will it cost me if I don’t lose weight?’ Just turn the clock forward and see a picture of yourself in a year’s time even heavier and even more unfit. Ask yourself what impact that will have on your self-esteem, love life, career, ability to get about etc. Notice how that makes you feel now?
