Daily Motivation for Successful Weight LossWritten by Isabelle Berard
Why do you want to lose weight? Is it to have less fat on your body? Or is it because of well being you think you will feel without your extra pounds? Do you think that you will acquire more vitality, be more seducing, which will boost your confidence and self-esteem? Almost everything that we do aim to modify way we feel. We really determine our future moment we take a firm decision. For me, everything changed day that I've decided that I was engaging myself to become and obtain what I would like in life. Think about it. There is a difference between being interested in something and engage yourself towards it. Often, people say: "Oh! I would like to lose some weight." But these kinds of declarations are not an engagement. We are simply enouncing one of our preferences such as: "It interests me, as long as I don't have to lift a finger." This is not power. Unfortunately, people don't take action, because they are to occupied to invent themselves some excuses. If they didn't reach their goal or if they don't live their dream life, they put forward way they were raise, absence of choice when they were young, lack of instruction or fact that they are to old. All these excuses are insignificant. They are not only restrictive, but also destructive. If you don't fix yourself some basic rules that you are ready to accept in your life, you'll see that it is very easy to slip into unhealthy behavior or attitude. If you take firm decision to lose weight, you can do it. Your life will change moment you take a firm decision. Will you finally decide today that you are more than what you've shown so far? Is it today that you will decide once and for all to harmonize your life saying: "This is who I am. Here is my life and here is what I do. Nothing will prevent me to accomplish my destiny. I won't accept that we deny what I am." To take a real decision, is to engage yourself to obtain a precise result and to refuse any other possibility. Understand that what is most difficult, when we want to accomplish something, is to take a firm engagement, a real decision.
Precious Information for Permanent Weight LossWritten by Isabelle Berard
Losing fat is not difficult. We all know that to lose fat, we have to burn more calories than we consume. It takes more than knowing what to do; you must develop behaviors, which keep you doing what you know. The most difficult part of losing weight is to keep it off. Americans spend more than $33 billion annually on weight-loss products and services, but only one-third of those who try to lose weight do what it really takes: eating fewer calories and exercising more. The problem is that lots of people take drastic measures to lose weight fast, but they can't keep up with paste. They've been on every diet imaginable. Small changes can be as effective as large ones and result in long-term improvements in your health. You have to establish good eating habits that can be maintained easily once ideal weight is achieved. People are so focused on fat or carbs, they're blind to huge portions of calorie-dense foods they are being served, not to mention huge portions we serve ourselves. As a result, 64% of Americans are overweight, as opposed to 47% 25 years ago. Long-term weight loss success occurs after many months of slow, steady body fat reduction through increased exercise and healthier eating. Make a decision to lose weight This is very first step. You must be able to answer these questions. I invite you to write them down. Why do I want to lose weight? Why didn't I succeed to lose weight or maintain my weight? What are actions that I took in past but ended up with a negative result? Why do I eat too much? To increase pleasure or to avoid pain? How do I fell today being overweight. What are consequences on my physical health, my self-esteem, my personal image, my relationship with others, my love life, my work, etc.? If I don't change my lifestyle, what will be price to pay in 2,3 or 5 years from now? Learning what to eat is half mission getting to your ideal weight and staying there. You must also develop new eating habits that become your eating character. Managing your weight is a lifestyle, it's someone you become, and not something you try. Set your goals Too many times, people are focused on getting started and no on what finish will be. If you don't know what you want or what you are doing, you will be less likely to go where you want to go. If you don't have a picture of what you want in your mind, you will be less motivated. Setting right goal can help you get there if you're passionate about what you want and understand why you want it. Start by writing down a goal that is specific and realistic, and then devise a plan that covers tactics for overcoming obstacles. To keep yourself motivated, include short-term goals that are within reach. You must define your goals in positive terms. Write down what you want to happen not what you don't want.
