The Psychology Behind Effective Weight Loss
No matter what it is you want to achieve the place to start
is in your own mind. How you think and what you focus upon
will dictate the outcome which you experience. If you go into
something without commitment you will not reach the finishing
line. It is essential to make an informed choice when deciding
on the best weight loss action to take. The majority (99.9999%)
of failed weight loss attempts lie in the persons mind - in
their attitude, beliefs, expectations or lack of information.
To be successful in losing weight, you have to use the mental
skills essential to success at anything in life. Losing weight
is NOT simply a matter of keeping your mouth shut, as most
of us have discovered. Unfortunately most people just hear
about a new diet and "try it" the following week. On a scale
of 1 to 10 please grade that for commitment. And please be
ruthlessly honest. I'd give it a 0 or 1. "Trying" is lying
as the saying goes - lying to yourself, that is. You don't
try to brush your teeth, you brush them. You don't try to
eat your lunch; you eat it. And on a scale of 1 to 10 please
grade this same scenario on how well informed this would-be
dieter is. Again, I'd give it a 0 or 1 at most. Apply the
same scale as to how detailed the person's beliefs and expectations
of success are and again, I fear the same low rating will
be the result.
Think now how damaging the effect is of having made a "half-baked"
attempt at weight loss. No one likes to admit that they didn't
really try and so will justify in their own mind that they
did try, they tried really hard, but it "still didn't work".
This leads on to the next logical conclusion - "whatever I
try, I can't lose weight", creating an ever deeper belief
that you will never manage to lose weight. And if you think
you cannot, you are right. You create your own reality, through
the thoughts you choose to think.
If you want to lose weight successfully, there is no point
in making justifications such as "I'm big boned" or "all of
my family have a big appetite". These thoughts (no matter
how correct they may be), made more compelling each time you
give them the time of day, won't help you to lose weight;
they will do the exact opposite and will stand in your way
and create a powerful barrier to weight loss. You have, within
your own mind, all of the keys to successful weight loss,
so long as you choose to apply them.
Thus to lose weight effectively, I suggest "binning" any and
every "justification" that you have ever used. Promise yourself
that you will never again pay heed to them. Instead, focus
on how a successful person might think about weight loss.
Imitate and emulate the most successful person you know. Empower
yourself through prior knowledge so that you can make an informed
choice about the best weight loss method for you. Commit yourself
as fully to your plan as you would if you know that you will
succeed - 100%. Seek the help of the right expert for you,
if you want, or consider that you need, assistance.
As a hypnotherapist, I think the most frustrating thing is
when a client turns up in my office as a result of a "half-baked"
idea. You need to meet your therapist half way - the hypnotherapist
cannot do it for you, but will work wonders so long as you
are a willing, committed and well prepared subject. What is
so ironic that it is only the way in which you think that
gets in the way of your own success!
I have found through experience that it takes time for a person
to adjust their thinking in relation to successful weight
loss. For this reason I have developed a program of hypnosis
downloads for effective weight loss. In this way you take
beliefs and expectations which previously got in your way,
and change them one at a time. I have also found that most
people tackle weight loss on a weekly basis; they have gotten
used to going to their weight loss group each week, and somehow
need an extra step up, a helping hand, every week so as to
keep on track. Hypnosis downloads designed for weight loss
provide you with a very easy, powerful and cost effective
way of gaining this help.
Hypnosis allows access to your subconscious mind, the part
where inner beliefs, habits and expectations are stored. Hypnosis
is the key to unlocking the hidden power of your own mind
and strengthening your resolve to lose weight successfully.
You can listen to a hypnosis download every day if you wish
and ensure that your resolve does not waver; rather, you will
find yourself going from strength to strength as your thoughts
work for you, instead of getting in your way.
