Determined To Lose Weight? PROGRAM Your MIND For Weight Loss

Program Your Mind For Weight Loss/Control
 I confess. I've been working for 8 months on gaining strength with weight lifting and achieving the ideal weight for me. And quite frankly, it's hard and requires discipline.

But I almost forgot the most imortant rule for achieving anything - "You are what you think about most." It's "new age" but proven to be true. If you persist in thinking you are fat and will never be thin, then you will always be fat.

So how do you break out of this vicious cycle?

Get onto The Biggest Loser program? Drastic and highly improbable!

Consider the Psychological Aspect of Getting Thin
You can program your mind for weight loss. You can bring your thoughts in line with your weight loss objectives. The mind-body connection just CANNOT be ignored. In fact, it may be the first and most important component of weight control.

Get Your Thoughts In Order
How? First, think "getting thin" versus "losing weight". Losing is for losers. Getting thin means changing your body to look and feel healthier.

You can monitor your thoughts to see how many times a day you think a negative thought about your weight. By the way, avoiding the mirror DOES NOT WORK.

Help From A Successful Mind Control Expert
How about help from a knowledgeable, successful guru whose book is entitled I Can Make You Thin? Paul McKenna includes a self-hypnosis, affirmation CD with his book. My experience is that if you play the CD daily for the recommended 2 weeks, you will have a different perspective about getting thin. It will become engrained into your thinking patterns. Best of all, you can listen to the CD playing in the background and it will still make an impact.

The book also addresses the other 2 areas of weight control - nutrition and exercise or more accurately, increased activity. In fact, you can change just one thing about eating and still be successful by enjoying every mouthful and being conscious about the eating process. True, this requires changing habits like consuming an entire package of chips or a quart of ice cream in one sitting. This is most frequently done in front of the TV set. Most of the time, you can't even remember eating the chips or the ice cream! Learn to eat mindfully - that's the message.
