The journey toward successful and permanent weight loss includes much more than just living a healthy lifestyle through nutrition and exercise; it is greatly influenced by your mindset. Is your mindset supportive of living a healthy lifestyle conducive to permanent weight loss? If not, you've come to the right place! To make it even better, i've condensed it down into a manageable list of 5 topics. Read on!
Permanent Weight Loss Success Tip #5: Educate Yourself
Besides weight loss, what other tangible benefits does healthy nutrition and regular exercise provide? Just an example, exercise is known to release chemicals that act as mood stabilizers, energy boosters, and appetite suppressants! I'm talking about an immediate change that you can notice right away.
Nutrition's role in your health and well being is even more noticeable. Try a thorough cleanse sometime and see the difference in how you clear you think, see, and feel. You'll even taste things differently after a cleanse. Healthy nutrition and regular exercise coupled together act as a fountain of youth on your body. How'd you like to look and feel 10-15 years younger?
Permanent Weight Loss Success Tip #4: Have a Plan and Stick to It!
You wouldn't drive across country with a specific destination in mind without first mapping out your route, why would you approach your health and well being any other way?
Just like a map, strategic goal planning helps you to break down your weight loss journey into smaller, more manageable steps. How much weight do you have to lose? How about breaking that number into 5-10 pound increments? How do you plan on losing that weight? Make a detailed meal plan that includes a grocery list to help you plan ahead in order to avoid distractions. Create a weekly fitness routine that includes aerobic cardio, high-intensity interval training, and regular strength training.
Writing your goals down as part of a daily To-Do List serves as a navigational tool to your permanent success; it also acts as your accountability.
Permanent Weight Loss Success Tip #3: Take Action Daily!
Okay, okay. I realize I just said that permanent weight loss is much more than just eating healthy and exercising regularly, but you can't lose weight and maintain weight loss without doing those things! Take a moment to get it set in your head that there are no magic supplements, no secret diets, or miraculous fitness programs that are going to allow you to lose weight absent of healthy nutrition and regular exercise.
Are you ready to move on? Good, because now I'm about to get back in your good graces. I'm actually going to teach you how you can create a mindset that enables you to enjoy healthy nutrition and regular exercise! Yes, there is a way!
Permanent Weight Loss Success Tip #2: Change Your Focus
The problem with your struggle may be that your approaching healthy nutrition and regular exercise solely as a means to an end for weight loss. The error in that approach is evident once you lose the weight; you cast eating healthy and exercising regularly aside and regress back into the very same eating and exercising habits that kept you overweight in the first place.
The solution is to change your focus from losing weight, to building lifelong healthy eating and exercising habits that will help you lose weight permanently. When you aren't focusing on your weight, you conserve so much of your efforts and energy that you could be focusing on another area of your life. Aren't there other endeavors in your life you'd like to get to?
Permanent Weight Loss Success Tip #1: Believe That You Can!
This is the most important tip that anyone could ever give you when it comes to permanent weight loss. Without the belief that you can lose weight, every other action will eventually be thwarted by your self-sabotaging habits and thinking patterns.
Do you really believe that you can lose weight permanently? Do you honestly think you can learn to enjoy exercise and nutritious foods? Is anything truly impossible for you? You can do anything you set your mind to--literally! Set your mind on losing that weight permanently!
