We have just witnessed the 2008 Summer Olympics and seen how athletes in various types of sports have performed. All of them would have put in a tremendous amount of effort over the years just to get to participate. The winners though, would have had something extra going for them. This something extra would have been the mental strength to steel themselves to achieve the extraordinary.
Just like the winners,weight loss requires us to have the mental strength to come out winners in the race to shed off excess weight. We need the right mindset to succeed. How do we build this mental strength or right mindset? It is through programming ourselves. We need to plant the weight loss desire and image deep into our sub-conscious mind. When it is planted in our sub-conscious mind, we will be driven spontaneously or "automatically" to achieve our weight loss goals.
How do we plant the weight loss desire and image in our sub-conscious mind? We can do so, by firstly,impressing the conscious mind. This can be done through repeated self-talk. We just keep talking to ourselves about our goals and objectives for losing weight. We talk about why it is important for us to lose weight and the consequences of failure. One very important point though, is to be very careful how and where we engage in this self-talk! I Do it the wrong way and in the wrong place and you are certain to alarm the people around you.
Once we have impressed our conscious mind with the weight loss message, we can the plant it in our sub-conscious mind through repeated practice of the actions required for the required weight loss results. In this context, more needs to be done when we need to lose belly fat. For most people who need to lose weight,belly fat is of the highest priority. At the same time, belly fat is the most difficult type of fat to get rid of. Therefore,our self-talk needs to be doubled and the actions or efforts required need to be intensified when it comes down to losing belly fat.
From the above, it is clear that the self-talk needs to be supported by the required action for our weight loss program to succeed. Whether it is a diet system, digestive system cleanser,exercise,pills or any other related program ,it will only succeed through repeated and sustained effort. You need to walk the talk. The enemy here is procrastination. In other words,putting off till tomorrow what you can do today. Finding an excuse or rationale for this is very easy and convincing. However, in doing so, we only fool ourselves by feeding ourselves a ration of lies.
Weight loss has become a serious topic as it is associated to health. Many of us face grave medical consequences if we keep on putting off or postponing what needs to be done in order to lose weight. Start today and start now. Do not lose time towards becoming healthier,looking and feeling better as well as generally enjoying a better quality of life.
In selecting a program that is most suited to our needs and circumstances, we need to learn of the different programs that have been proven to be effective and yet affordable. Further, the programs need to be validated as safe and risk free. One option is to research or view the tons of information that is available online or elsewhere. The easier and more effective option is to focus on weight loss programs that have been filtered and selected for informed decision making.
