One of the most important parts of any weight loss journey is mindset. If you go into this with a bad frame of mind then you are destined to fail. Something we see a lot in the industry is people coming in and wanting to lose weight but deep down they are doing it for someone else. When people are in this frame of mind, they normally give up when it gets hard.
Here are a few things that will help you with your mind frame. Firstly it is important to find out why you eat. Are you a stress eater? Emotional eater? Do you eat for comfort? Or do you eat for health?
The first 3 are the ones that can really hamper you weight loss journey. So the important thing is to recognise these issues and try and control them. Figure out the signs before you do it and then get on top of it. You might make mistakes but make sure you pick yourself up and keep going.
Practice positive thinking. When you wake up in the morning, make sure you start off the day with a positive statement in your mind. If you start having negative thoughts, remind yourself of why you are doing it.
Find yourself a positive mantra and use it.
Another good way to keep your mind on track is to write things down. This helps in so many ways, such as helping you release all the negativity ie emotions and feelings. It’s a great way to track exactly what sets you off and can let you get control of it.
Find someone to help you stay positive. It’s important to have a good support network to be able to lift you back up on those days you just don’t feel it. Whether it be a trainer, friends or family. Just make sure you have that positive network and get rid of negativity.
