When we make a decision to lose weight, it is difficult in the beginning. We don’t want to take the challenge sometimes and often we get a thought in our mind that when are we going to lose weight.
We also feel that our destination is far away and it is going to take ages. When we think like this, we just need to change our thinking. When we change our thinking, we can change practically anything in our life. Losing weight is also not an exception.
Whatever thoughts we have in our mind becomes a reality. When we get negative thoughts in our mind, we should not encourage them.
We should also never listen to people who pull us down and don’t want us to succeed. This can be difficult sometimes because there are many people out there who look nice. I think in this case we need to trust our instincts and we need to know the people who are wolves in sheep clothing.
What does this have to do with losing weight? You might think!
I guess everything. We need to keep a positive mindset whenever we want to lose weight. We can be positive when we think positive and when we are not surrounded with people who don’t want us to succeed.
So first thing is to always keep a positive mindset and second thing is to get out of our comfort zone
What does this mean? Comfort zone is a zone where we feel comfortable and complacent. It is a place which we don’t want to leave. If we do that we will experience some sort of pain. When we are trying to lose weight, we sometimes say to ourselves “Why go through all of this pain?” or “It’s ok, I will do it tomorrow”
If you have ever said this to yourself or if you have said any similar thing, you are in your comfort zone and you don’t want to change.
Comfort zone is a DANGEROUS place. When you take an initiative to go on a diet and when you take an initiative to exercise, you are getting out of your comfort zone. You will feel UNCOMFORTABLE.
However it is necessary for you to feel uncomfortable. When you will feel uncomfortable, this means you are breaking the habit of doing nothing. If you keep doing this for 21 days to 30 days, this will become a part of your comfort zone and these activities won’t be uncomfortable anymore.
You will look forward to your diet and you will build momentum. You will see results that you always wanted. So the most important thing is take that first step and then get out of your comfort zone.
If you do this, you will surprise yourself.
