If you are overweight and have tried diets and other weight loss remedies before without long term success then you might want to take a different approach. Chances are your mind-set will be holding you back and keeping you from losing weight for good. Let’s explore why this is the case.
Firstly, lets consider the self-management sequence. This is pretty much what drives your actions and anything you do, so its obviously very important. This is how it goes:
Your actions are created by your feelings. Your feelings are created by your attitudes. Your attitudes are created by your beliefs, and your beliefs are created by your programming.
This all basically means that you programming or subconscious mind-set will completely determine your actions through this sequence. So if you want to change the end result – your actions – you need to start at the source of the problem and work on your mind-set. If you start at the end nothing will change for long and your current programming will still remain, holding you back from that goal of permanent weight loss.
So how does this relate to your weight?
Well, by failing to develop the right mind-set and programming you actions will never be ‘right’ and will never consistently help you achieve the result you crave. So you’re unlikely to stick with a healthy eating plan for long, exercise frequently, make the right decisions, and so on. If you don’t have this mind-set, your actions simply won’t be in line with what you are looking to achieve.
If you have ever tried a diet, lost some weight, and put that weight back on again, only to go and look for another diet and repeat the process, you’ll almost certainly have the wrong mind-set for permanent weight loss. Sure, you might see a short term result, but invariably you’re going to end up putting that weight back on again soon after.
Most people tend to focus on nutrition and exercise and this is clearly very important. However you need to start with your mind-set if you want to achieve a real long term result. Do this and everything else will fall into place.
So before you even consider trying another diet or weight loss programme, please do focus on developing that positive, long term weight loss mind-set. If you don’t you’ll be sure to keep struggling.
