|Identify your negative beliefs and mental patterns (in writing in a journal). Any emotional, mental, or spiritual problems will have to be dealt with before you can make any genuine progress with your weight loss.|
|Release them, replacing them with new positive and self-nurturing beliefs and patterns that are in alignment with who you really are and what you really want. Take back your power and start to make your healthy choices for your life.|
|Adopt a positive mental attitude|
|Be "aware" of your thoughts, your words and what you eat. This is about conscious living, by being aware of and taking responibility for your choices, you can celebrate YOUR successes and learn from any setbacks.|
|Only eat when you are hungry, enjoy your food, eat slowly and stop when you are full|
|Choose to eat only foods you love and that are good for you.|
|Learn to love drinking water and avoid sugar.|
|Incorporate more activity & exercise into your lifestyle. Weight loss exercise is important because it raises your metabolism and is very important for your health and energy levels.|
|Concentrate on getting out and doing active things you enjoy.|
As your ability to action each of these points improves over time, the patterns and behaviours that previously blocked your success will slowly dissolve away. This success reinforces the things you are doing, leading to more success. As this upward spiral of success continues, your life will change, you will start to attract the things you desire most, into your life. And just as importantly, almost without noticing you will be at your natural,healthy ideal weight.
Knowing what to do is only one part of the issue, actually doing it is perhaps the most difficult thing of all. I am acutely aware that anyone reading this with a weight problem is likely to have developed it and the mental habits that accompany it over a long period of time. Sometimes right back to childhood, sometimes its having children, experiencing a life trauma or simply falling victim to "good living". Whatever the reasons, the moment to start making your changes is now. If you really want things to change then you can make it happen for yourself.
