Two Major Road Blocks That Stop You From Losing Weight

Do you find it easy to get started with losing weight? Read on if you do not because it is often hard to get started with a weight loss program. There are two main reasons for not getting started.

Believing in Miracles.

Procrastination is one of the main reasons why some people never seem to lose weight let alone lose it quickly. If you are like me, you tell yourself that you will start the diet “next week” or “after Christmas” (or some other excuse like waiting for spring), and that lets us procrastinate even further. It won’t happen if you delay action.

However, the truth is that it does not matter what season it is. And it does not matter what month of the year it is either – because any sensible observation will tell you it i foolish to wait until a particular month to get slim. Why would you want to remain overweight – and perhaps get more overweight for any longer than you need to? If you Lose weight fast, it allows you to wear more attractive (and better fitting) clothes right now. And that feeling is very worthwhile.

Here is a trick to get you moving. Find your calendar and circle today’s date, then count ahead 14 days and circle that day too. That day will be coming up really fast, and with the right diet recipes, you could be 10 lbs lighter on that day! That would be nice wouldn’t it?

Every journey begins with taking a first step… and if you never take that first step then you will never have a slimmer and more attractive body. Do not delay -just start today.

Untrustworthy Goals.

It is not so much a secret it is just that most people take the easy way they do not always set weight loss goals or follow through to ensure they meet their goals.

There are two approaches, I have found useful in the past.

* Creative visualization of the future state – picturing and moving towards what you are going to look like, and feel like as the new, thinner and lighter you.

* Concentrating your energy, thoughts and emotions on the attainment of your goals.

Creative visualization is the art of using mental imagery and affirmation to produce positive change in your life. This approach is used successfully in the fields from health care, business, sports and creative arts. It is easy to successfully apply it to lose weight fast. They way they work are based on the following principles.

Your present reality is based on your current thinking

Thus if you change your thinking about your present situation you can create change

Affirmations change your thinking.

Have you ever noticed how many times athletes just beat an old record by a small mark or win at something important? Well, they often use affirmations to imagine the competition and what the feeling of winning will be like.

You might find that affirmations work best for you, when dieting, if they are if supported by pictures that you select to stimulate you. For example, if you have an affirmation about nutritious healthy food, a suitable image could be some nice fruit.

It can have a positive impact in helping you to visualize and move towards a new lighter you – find a picture on the web of a slimmer healthier body and then start seeing yourself in it.
