What’s stopping you from keeping your weight loss goal?

For many, the New Year brings with it many resolutions and goals – namely, to lose weight. But it can be difficult to keep on top of your diet and exercise plans, and these ambitious goals invariably diminish within a few weeks. A large part of the problem for most people is that their reasons for overeating go deeper than simply enjoying food. Once those issues are dealt with, you’ll find it far easier to stick to a healthy weight loss plan.

Creating a weight loss mindset is the first tool to losing weight and keeping the pounds off – this not only helps you to keep your motivation, but also enables you to shed the fat far more easily. It is thought that your weight loss mindset accounts for around 90 per cent of your weight loss success, with diet and exercise only making up 10 per cent of the equation. Professional clients state that clients feel liberated and full of vitality, as though a burden has been lifted, simply through battling their weight loss mindset.

It is thought that a mere two weeks after people make their New Year’s resolution to lose weight, they give up and go back to their old eating habits – all because it is too much hard work. But a large proportion of that hard work is lifted simply by getting to the bottom of why you overeat. Once you have determined your reasons for doing this, you will feel more motivated to go to the gym, to eat healthier meals and to exude a more positive outlook throughout your weight loss journey.

No-one has ever said that losing weight is a simple task, but it can be made far easier with a few mental exercises. Once you have dealt with your inner problems, you can work at making lifestyle adjustments that will have a lasting effect on the weight your shift so that you never need make the ubiquitous resolution again.
