Weight Loss – Is It All In Your Head?

Posted by healthylivingtoday on February 18, 2008

You can lose the weight – you just have to put your mind to it. How many times have you heard this from a variety of well-meaning people? Has it worked for you? If not, then maybe you need to change how you are interpreting what they mean.

Anyone who has been on a diet – and who hasn’t been – knows that willpower is rarely the issue. When we want to lose weight, we are willing to do almost anything. It is when it doesn’t work that we get discouraged and quit.

So what does it mean to “put your mind to it”? I think that it may better thought of in terms of the popular book “The Secret”. If we get a picture in our minds (or posted on the refrigerator) of what we want our body to look like and then in our minds, we begin seeing ourselves looking like that – we are on the right track. When it may not happen as fast as we would like it to, we need to stay positive and realize that we are on the way! We have made the changes that we need to and it is only a matter of time until we get there. When we have the urge to give up, focusing on what we KNOW we are working towards and that we have already done the hard part – getting started – we will eventually make it!
