Do you know which areas of your life that would influence your weight loss? You are likely to be concerned about your weight when your weight is more than your ideal; when you have to search your wardrobes for the clothes that fit you or your doctor gives you that warning that you have to watch your diet.
We are conditioned to deal with these issues by trying to repair just our physical being - hence we go into an overdrive to cure weight through diets, dieting plans, cleansing tablets and attending classes. Whilst you remain in the overdrive to cure your physical being, you tend to neglect other areas of your life which may have contributed to your weight gain.
To attain a holistic weight loss, you can no longer ignore these six important areas of your life:
To be successful with your weight loss plan, you need to assess yourself in terms of your physical health and how your body would react or would cope with your plans. Many times, people go on diets or start weight loss plans without first knowing or understanding what their body can tolerate.
You need to understand the cause of weight gain. Can you handle or control your diets whilst grieving or having problems with your spouse or in the middle of marriage crisis. You have to be realistic with yourself.
You need to maintain a positive attitude at all times. How many times have you expressed doubts about your weight loss diet or programme? Do you remember how you felt when your weight was more than you expected after dieting all week? Without adopting a positive mental attitude and self-belief, you cannot achieve your goal.
It is critical that you understand your own needs and the weight loss programme you intend to do. Would you buy a car without knowing its engine capacity, fuel consumption and the cost of insuring it? By understanding your intellectual needs you will gain understanding of why your eating pattern does not help your weight. You will need to understand how to adjust your lifestyle to achieve your weight loss goals.
Have you thought about your inspirations? Do you know what inspires you? It could be a favourite piece of music. Think about how inspirational that music could be when you listen to it whilst cycling through the woods.
Just like me, you know its money that pays for the membership of the slimming club and that nutritional supplement. To achieve your goal, you will need to complete your weight programme. If money is an issue you may have to reconsider your options.
