Losing weight is not something you just up and decide to do. It requires the right mentality, proper planning, determination, and tools that work. The right mentality is the most important of all these. This is the personal decision to being and continue.
If you do not believe you can do something, you won’t. A task as difficult as losing weight has to be driven from within to be a successful campaign. Many people are losing weight for the wrong reasons.
They are worried about what people think when they see them, want to impress another person, or simply try to be something they are not. All of these reasons for losing weight can backfire and result in a tremendous weight gain.
I challenge you to look at weight loss in a different way. Instead of thinking “I want to be slimmer”, think “I want to be more healthy”. Take a second and actually think about those statements. Now you might be wondering what’s the difference between the two.
Look at it like this, weight is a concept of the now. Meaning anybody can gain or lose it at any given time. Health on the other hand is a concept of now and later. Weight fits under the category of health. Let’s look at athletes for a second.
Many athletes will tell you that they perform differently based upon what weight they hold. Not because of the number of pounds on their frame, but because of the composition and substance of their bodies. They are conditioned and nourished properly- aka healthy.
This should be your goal too. To be as healthy as you can be. If your body is as fit as it can be, the exterior will reflect that. I’m sure you know the famous phrase “You get out what you put in”, there is no greater place for application of these words than when talking about the body.
Take note of your weight, but only use it as a reference point. Eventually the scale will not change because muscle weighs more than fat. So please don’t obsess over the dial not moving. If you feel healthier and more active, you are moving in the right direction.
Take the time to make sure you are living a healthy life and your appearance and weight will be better than ever before.
