Easy and effortless weight loss is possible when you are able to get your mind and body working together toward your goal. The problem with this is that it is easy to jump into weight loss without getting your head in the game. This article gives you some mental strategies to keep a positive focus so easy and effortless weight loss becomes a reality for you.
In my experience with clients working toward weight loss I have found that those who are mentally "in the game" have much easier and better results. And the great news is that there are ways that you can teach yourself to get a stronger and better mindset.
1. Do this every morning. Start your day with gratitude and specifically what you are grateful for about your body. Wait...I know what you are thinking, you are already coming up with what you DON'T like about your body. If this is true for you STOP.
You will only change if you are in a body worth changing for and the truth is you live in an amazing body. Your body kept you breathing all night long without you thinking about it, your body circulates your blood every minute of the day sending all the proper nutrients where they need to go. Are you grateful for that? Then remind yourself every morning.
2. Do this every day. Remind yourself that results don't come for free. During the day you will likely hear some negative self-talk when you recognize it remind yourself that you are worth this change. This will not take any work other than a gentle nudge in the right direction.
3. Do this every night. Perhaps one of the recommendations for easy and effortless weight loss that I get the most positive feedback on is to go through a "what went well" review each night.
This is a simple but powerful way to get your head in the weight loss mentality. When you lay down at night ask yourself "what went well today that pushed me toward my weight loss goal." You might have had a salad for dinner or you might have gone for a walk at lunch time. The key is to only focus on the positives.
By focusing on what is going right you effortlessly put yourself in a place of wanting to bring more good things into your life.
The only way to get easy and effortless weight loss is to get your mind and body working together, this is what naturally thin or fit people already do and what you can learn to do.
