Mindset Matters When It Comes to Weight Loss

So what is your Weight Mindset? What are your thoughts and beliefs when it comes to weight? Are you set for success or failure? Are you sentenced to being a lifelong struggler or will you overcome and be a life-long achiever of weight loss?

Your Weight Mindset will determine your weight-more so than the diet or exercise plan. You will always validate your mindset. If you have a mindset that says losing weight is hard and managing the weight loss is even harder, that is what you will get-a life of struggling to keep your weight down. If, however, you have a mindset that losing weight is doable and that you deserve to live in a happy, healthy body, then you will rise above the weight loss problem and manage your weight.

How can you tell what your Weight Mindset is? Well, first take a look at your current picture. Look at what the scale and the measuring tape are telling you. Look at your eating habits. Observe how you use food at a party; is food your main focus? Look at your actions when you are alone with food. Notice your emotions when you are eating. Do you feel anxious, hurried, stressed? Are you using food to quiet those emotions? Pay attention to how your body feels after you eat. Are you stuffed or pleasantly full?

Is dieting torture to you? Do you have control over what you eat and when? Do you stick with a diet until you lose all the weight you want to, or do you jump around from plan to plan?

You can try every new diet to hit the best-seller list for the next twenty years. You can gain a Ph.D. in biochemistry. You can vacation at a fat farm. You can stop eating and live on grapefruit juice for a month. But, when all is said and done, if the thoughts, feelings and beliefs that make up your Weight Mindset don't change to support your lower weight, you will never have long-term success.

Your Mindset will always shape your weight. It is always impacting your decisions whether you want it to or not, whether it is producing good results or bad. Each thought you have, every belief you allow to live in your mind will shape your future. They will either move you toward your goal or away from it. They will either give you strength or misery. They will make you a struggler or an achiever. This is why it is so important to monitor your thoughts.

Keep in mind that your thoughts and beliefs lead to your habits and behaviors which create the results you see. Choose to think like an Achiever, and you will create the results that Achievers create.
