Weight Loss: 6 Tips For Staying Positive

staying positive

Anyone that has tried losing a good amount of weight before, would testify to this:

Staying positive throughout the weight loss program is the most difficult thing to do. In as much as consistency is the key, most people end up not being consistent because of inability to stay positive.

It’s only when you are positive that you can be consistent.

I do notice something with most of my young weight loss clients; that is- most of them are impatient to give in few weeks or months to weight loss…

…they normally want it ‘sharp-sharp’.

And this is the number one act of being negative to weight loss. This is because, you are aware that you are lying to yourself and still don’t wish to stop the lie.

Staying positive throughout the weight loss process can be difficult. A few setbacks and you may be ready to give up.

So Staying motivated throughout your weight loss journey requires focus on the goal and positive thinking – but what do you do when you are feeling less than positive about your efforts?

These tips could help you greatly to stay positive:

1. Outline Your Reasons:

List your reasons for choosing to lose weight. Whether it’s for health reasons, or simply to be able to fit into your favorite dress again – list it.

Then make several copies of the list, and place them where you’ll be able to see them regularly. Keeping your goals in front of you will help you remember why you’re doing all this in the first place.

2. Do Not Go Saying That You are on Diet:

Don’t use the word diet. If you can, avoid using it completely. This conjures up images of deprivation, and you end up feeling sorry for yourself. Instead, tell yourself (and others) that you’re not on a diet, but that you are trying to make healthier choices.

3. Do Not Use “F” Word:

Lol, definitely not what you are thinking.

Avoid using the word “FAT” when describing yourself. This includes your thoughts. Thinking about how fat you are and how bad you think you look will only bring you down and stress you out. Stress often equals eating another bag of cookies or withdrawing from the weight loss program.

4. Use Positive Adjectives:

Heavy,Bold, Thick, voluptuous, plus size, – these all have nicer connotations than “fat” and will help you to see yourself in a more positive light.

5. Focus on Your Positives:

Think about all the things you like about your body, as well. If you have great hair, for example, focus on that as you attempt to lose weight. This takes the focus off of the body parts you dislike, and helps to get rid of the stress.

6. Find a Realistic Role Model:

This is another strong point. Here, you see a highly overweight person looking up to Halle Berry…that’s good, but definitely unrealistic for a start. You will surely snap out without attaining your goal.

Instead of focusing on celebrities that are thin, find a celebrity that is larger and attractive, or one that is struggling with weight loss. This allows you to choose a realistic role model.

Positive body image can be difficult to find when you’re struggling to lose weight. Focusing on your positive mental and physical traits will help you to be comfortable in the body you have.

The above tips helps you to work towards better health rather than working to be thin. Generally, this suggests a much approach to weight loss, and will help you to keep off the lost weight permanently. And finally, help you stay positive throughout the weight loss program.
