Not just diet and work out thins. We have said many times, changing your body is primarily a mental process in which you will face many challenge of everyday life, especially if your lifestyle is not exactly a healthy one.
Today we want to plot a few situations that have nothing to do directly with the food and exercise but with perceptions and challenges when losing weight.
Disappointment with the results
The way you perceive how you’re doing can affect your actual results. Works badly in two opposite directions.
On the one hand some people think they are not doing well when in fact they do, and that false perception inevitably leads to somehow sabotage all the good they were doing in terms of diet and exercise. You think that is less than what you really are doing.
On the other side are those who put too high stick and mistakenly believe that they will lose a massive amount of weight in a few weeks. The result is instant disappointment and abandonment of any effort to move forward with your weight loss plan.
It is always possible to break this perception. For the first this can be achieved keeping track of the whole process, for the second practicing patience and understanding that all overweight that has not been accumulated from one day to the other so it’s not expected to miss any that way. Another tool for both is the information about what they are doing, what is expected in a healthy weight loss and how long if things are as they are made.
Influences, let influence, popular beliefs
Losing weight has a lot of art. Everyone is different and what works for one may not work in others. However that does not mean you should leave aside science much less let influenced by supposed experts, relatives, friends or fellow gym.
If you do not have a plan to follow condenad you, but if you have a program and let anyone opine on, and what is worse you ignore those views are also condenad.
You say what you say and who you say it tell you if you have a plan follow him, give him time to see if it works, controls the process and violates the same. Always possible to do better but do not be a victim of perfectionism or despair. Have a plan and follow and follow up is the best you can do to lose weight the best way.
