Hoping For a Miracle to Your Weight Loss Challenge?

Posted on

It can be daunting. You’ve tried everything. You lose, you gain, you lose, you gain. It’s a nightmare -right? But it doesn’t have to be that way. Keeping yourself in the zone of let’s call it “Weight Awareness” doesn’t need to be a full time job. However, only thinking about making changes and never actually taking the first step will keep you more in “Weight Denial” Zone for awhile than anything else. So how can you become more aware and realistic and less frightened or paralyzed?

Here are 5 “Miracles” for You to Consider:

Miracle # 1 There are no Miracles. It’s as simple as that. Real change requires effort, commitment and trust in the process and in yourself. You may not see results right away, but when you put one foot in front of the other and do what it takes on a daily basis, the results of all your effort is bound to show. However, I must add, that if you’ve been at it for awhile trying to lose weight and are not making headway, it’s time to consult a professional.

Miracle # 2 Realistic Dreaming is Good for You: Yes go ahead and imagine being healthy, lean and fit. Studies show the powerful effects of visualization in achieving any goal. In your mind’s eye you can see yourself energetic, fit and wearing clothes you love and dream of putting on someday. Just like Olympic athletes – you can train your brain to think positive thoughts and allow yourself to emotionally experience a New You.

Miracle # 3 Think Opportunity Not Challenge: Your weight loss and healthy eating program can be a wonderful adventure into self realization. Most people enter a “diet” with trepidation and not excitement. Try and change your thinking, suspend all judgment and just go for it. Whatever you are doing is better than doing zero, unless of course it’s downright unhealthy, unsound and unproven.

Miracle # 4 One Small Step: No leaps required. The slower and more aware you are in your Weight Loss Journey the better. Don’t think of this as “oh in a few weeks or months I’ll weigh such and such”. Think more long term – how will I feel and look in a year or two. Think one meal at a time if you need to.

Miracle # 5 Being Healthy is Never Done: It is a practice of being healthy, not a one time event. So keep at it – there are no failures. You are never done – this is a lifelong process – so enjoy it – there’s no hurry!
