One of the key aspects for weight loss is positive thinking. You may have heard this from several other people. A lot of people fail to lose weight because negative thoughts dominate their minds. If they don’t get quick results from a fat loss program they get disappointed and negativity creeps in. However there are people who successfully shed weight because they remain positive and persistent.
Here are two tips that can help you in staying focused and lose weight fast.
The first thing to realize is that you cannot lose weight overnight. It will take some time and effort to do that. Similarly you will not be able to erase the negative thoughts within a few hours. It will take some time to develop a positive mindset.
Second important point is to identify the true reasons for weight loss effort. Why do you want to lose weight? You may want to lose weight so that you are admired by a lot of girls or it could be that you just want to have a body and shape that resembles your favorite movie star or it could be for making it to the baseball team. Write down all the reasons on post-it note pads and stick them at several prominent places in your house so that you get reminded of your weight loss goals each and every day.
The third important thing that you need to do is to find out your ideal weight based on body mass index (BMI). If you subtract your current weight from the ideal weight you will get the number of pounds you need to lose. Now do a self-assessment and set realistic weight loss goals. There is no point setting very aggressive goals and not achieving it. If losing 3 pounds a week seems achievable then make that your weekly goal. Based on the weight you need to lose, set your goals for subsequent weeks / months.
Now you need to motivate yourself regularly and stay focused towards achieving your goals. Read your post-it note pads frequently.There may be small slippages and setbacks, but don’t get bothered about those.
