weight loss tips
changing your attitude about losing weight may be a key factor to
help you. Have you ever considered starting a weight loss journey?
It may be that you can view losing weight as a journey rather than a
chore or a job. View this journey as a cross-country and not a
you tried journaling? Journals can be used in nearly everything.
Why not journal regarding your weight and the goals that you have for
losing your weight. I am a firm believer that it becomes more viable
when you write something down and when you visualize it as well.
When you journal you have a visual record of what is really going on
with yourself. It makes it easier to make adjustments where needed.
you may want to question why or when you are overeating. As a young
girl growing up I had a friend that was on the heavy side. I on the
other hand was always thin. I was always trying to gain weight
throughout school, until one day I just accepted to be happy with the
way that God made me. How many of you know that sometimes we want to
look like someone else or be like someone else? Or possibly you wish
you had something that the other person has? One day I asked my
friend about her eating habits. She told me when she felt bad she
would turn to food for comfort, but afterward she would feel bad. I
on the other hand was just the opposite when I felt bad I would not
eat. Food did not taste the same. There would be this bad taste in
my mouth. It was as though we both ate and did not eat for the same
reasons only she was heavy and I was very thin. Although I cannot
identify with being heavy I can identify with being thin and not
liking it at the time.
a journey does not occur immediately. Sometimes it may take days,
months, or years. It is important to be observant of yourself and
your surroundings while on the journey. I am so amazed when I see
people testifying about the 100 pounds that they loss. I am even
more amazed when they show before and after pictures. This is
definitely a tell all. I recall a co-worker showing me a picture of
her weighing many pounds. I was surprised, because I never knew that
until she showed me the picture. To look at her now, who would have
he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the
seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.” Things
happen in God’s time not yours. There may be times we want to rush
God. Does this sound familiar? You may think this weight loss is taking to long. Possibly
you feel exhausted and want to give up. Don’t give up, but
you asked yourself, “How is your attitude?” Besides diet,
exercise, and lifestyle, attitude is everything while on your weight
loss journey. According to Mayo Clinic staff you should be
positive and focus on how good you’ll feel when you weigh less.
They further add to picture yourself celebrating every success about
this journey. I could not agree more.
am a firm believer that practicing gratitude can definitely affect
your well-being for the better. There are so many things that you
can find to be grateful for, just look around you. Gratitude is a
practice. If at first it feels strange just continue practicing it.
It does get better. Gratitude can become a lifestyle. What are you grateful for?
