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.
Close Kept Secrets to Weight Loss Lesson #8Written by Tami Close
Close Kept Secrets to Weight Loss Lesson #8
Life is extraordinary filled with wonderful people to show up to teach us things. Mitzi, a special friend from high school, sent me a book, The Game of Life and How to Play It, when I was struggling with a sickness years ago. The author speaks about law of attraction, which I have written about previously. In addition, she writes, “No man is your enemy, no man is your friend, every man is your teacher.” When you look at life this way, it becomes so simple. Rather than be offended by what a person is saying to you, think a new thought. What is this person teaching me? What can I learn from this person? This book changed my life as it showed me how I could change my thoughts. I had always functioned from a foundation of worry and fear. Worry and fear are lower vibrational energies and then I attracted lower energies. Today, I see things entirely different as a result of changing my thoughts, and am so grateful for this transformation. I am now attracting higher vibrational energies and am amazed who is showing up for me!
What I would like you to do is write down top five people in your life. Don’t try and analyze this—just write down those people that first pop into your mind. Now, write down lessons they are teaching you. This might be a challenge if there is conflict with any of them. I once read that your true soul mates are people who challenge you to be better.
You have been given many great gifts. You are to share your talents with world. By remaining stuck in your weight issues, you are ripping off world of what you came to this earth to do. Recently, I worked with a personal coach who said these exact words to me….that if I wasn’t sharing my talents, I was ripping off world of all that God intended for me. This really made a powerful impact. Everything you are today is because of your thoughts and your decisions that you have made as a result of those thoughts. In book, If You Think You Can, word decision comes from Latin root meaning “to cut off from.” “There comes a time in every person’s life when making a decision is truly necessary. A decision where you thought so deeply in what you want that there is no option for turning back.”
