Your mind is a very powerful tool that can either help you to lose baby weight or it can make it more difficult based on how you think.
I get it, losing weight after childbirth is not easy and it does take commitment. No-one should judge others; we all have different circumstances or personal health issues that may impact on your ability to lose weight.
So I what I want to chat about here is that when you are ready to lose weight, you need to find the 'right mindset' to help you achieve your goals without making endless reasons or excuses why you aren't succeeding.
If you can implement some strategies to attain a 'positive mindset' then you will soon find out just how amazing your mindset can be when it comes to losing weight.
When you want to lose baby weight is not just about healthy eating; it also involves regular exercise, making healthy lifestyle choices and achieving a strong and positive mindset to making the required changes.
A positive mindset involves being able to take a more optimistic outlook on the decisions you make in life and the goals you want to achieve for yourself.
It is about taking a positive approach to challenges you are confronted with in life and instead of avoiding issues to implement strategies to overcome them.
On the hand, maintaining a negative and pessimistic mindset will only your goal of losing weight more difficult. While you will not always feel positive and optimistic you can use a positive mindset to get back on track and move in the right direction.
Are you even aware that you complain a lot? Do family and friends tell you to stop complaining so much?
We all can fall into a bad habit of complaining and unless we make a concerted effort to stop complaining we will just continue to complain. This endless complaining creates a negative mindset.
At various times we will all experience negative thoughts. However, you can reduce a lot of your negativity by becoming 'aware' of your thoughts and replacing these negative thoughts with more positive and constructive thoughts.
In our fast paced world we rarely stop and think about all the good things in our lives. It is important to occasionally stop and appreciate the small things in life we take for granted such as nice weather, family or our good times with friends.
Just like complaining is habit-forming so is always making excuses. The more often you make excuses the more you will keep doing it.
There can be reasons for failing to lose weight (medical issues) and there can just be excuses (not enough time). You must become accountable for the decisions and choices you make and stop making excuses for not being able to lose unwanted weight.
To achieve and maintain a healthy weight for life requires you to continually make an effort. As soon as you stop trying and revert back to bad habits or making excuses then you will start to gain weight again.
You must continue to eat a healthy and nutritious diet, you must continue to exercise regularly and you must continue to make healthy lifestyle choices.
While our exercise workouts are designed to provide you with the information and tools you require to lose weight; you will only succeed if you continually make an effort to implement the required healthy lifestyle choices.
In other words, we can guide you to making the required choices but ultimately it is up to you whether or not you continue to eat well, exercise and to continue with your positive mindset to being a 'Healthier You!'
