Think before you start losing weight

Before you begin to change your behaviour, you should step back and evaluate the behavior(s) that you want to change. More specifically, what are the steps needed to make the change? For example, if you want to learn a language, and you already know a little, then you may need to take a language test. This way, your language teacher will know the proper level to place you in: what you know and what is necessary for you to master the language in the future. When you are at the right level, then you don’t need to worry or be ashamed about the fact that you haven’t yet mastered the grammar of the language you want to learn.

Mirror Exercise

So for our purposes—losing weight—start your analysis by going to the mirror and looking at yourself. How much weight do you want to lose?

It is best if you also connect the answer to this question with a positive affirmation:

Practice: Stand in front of your mirror, observe and say to yourself: I love and accept myself unconditionally, even the parts of me (describe them specifically) that are overweight.

I understand that this exercise may be difficult to do, but I encourage you to do it once a day for the next two weeks—and see if you notice a difference. To accept and love yourself only after you have lost the first ten pounds is not the way to go.

As an adult, you must love yourself no matter how you are, no matter what you look like. This is one of the hardest things to do in life; accepting yourself often seems like an eternal battle. But you can do it! You can love yourself while you make the changes you want, and as you do, you will see your excess weight melt away.

  1. I believe that you have to have a healthy lifestyle, a diet is just fooling yourself and eventually you will gain the weight again. When you live a better lifestyle you gain many advantages. Looking good and feeling good are only a small part of it. When you eat right and live an active lifestyle your quality of life improves. I lost 50 pounds in 6 months and have been living the life…. I have my own site with info and tips
    I hope you will stop by and visit

  2. Thank you for your post. I think that we have to move ourselves not only to loose weight but to feel good. I don’t believe in all the vitamins, herbs and teas you can use for loosing weight. There is scientific proof that on the long run you gain weight with dieting.
    We have to change ourselves and our habits to have the weight we like to have. Because of that I offer a weekly coaching program with hypnosis to change these eating habits and the emotional eating patterns.
