What is the secret to successful weight loss? Many people think that those who are skinny, never face any weight loss problems. I would argue. I am skinny myself, and I know many other people who are skinny too. However, we DO put some effort in it. We really do something to stay skinny. And I am sure that many of the skinny people would get fat as soon as they got back to their old habits. This can be unhealthy eating, lack of movement, unhealthy lifestyle and many more.
There are PROVEN ways to lose weight and maintain it. And let`s face it, when you get to your best shape, it’s much easier to maintain it, than it is to get to it. This is why I often say that I stay skinny effortlessly. Because I actually do not feel like doing something to maintain my current weight. But I actually HAVE the same problem as many of you do: I would get fat in a week, if I kept eating hamburgers, ice creams, candies and cakes – and believe me, I love those!
The thing is, I do not want that much if them. I really enjoy eating healthy foods now instead of junk foods, sodas and sweets. And my way to this lifestyle was very long, and very hard. So how did I get here?
I will not mention every single diet here, every pill I took, or every single exercise. However, I will tell you the only thing I was missing when I could not achieve my weight loss results. Are you ready?
That word is so short, but it`s so powerful… It`s BELIEF. I was missing it, even if I believed I could lose that stubborn fat, I did not see myself thin. I never imagined myself buying smaller clothes, never imagine I could enjoy shopping because I could buy smaller size clothes.
It is very hard to keep the motivation when losing weight. But I`ve found that keeping motivation is much easier when you`re not alone. I love to read motivational books and thoughts – whenever I feel weak, they halp a lot. The 7 Hidden Secrets of Motivation book provides an exceptional value, and had a huge impact on my weight loss success, as well as still keeps me motivated to do so much in my life.
When you have motivation in place, persistence is the only thing you ever need to lose weight. It is impossible to fail, if you are motivated and persistent.
My secret to weight loss, as well as achieving any other goal, is firstly based on my belief. Diets, lifestyle, nutrition, exercising is what comes next. Nothing would work without a strong belief in myself and my abilities. The sky is the limit! 🙂
