Most people want a nice body. It is no coincidence that a diet most of the time is torturous and does not have the desired effect. The way of thinking and the diet must be in your mind an inseparable couple.
It is not enough to be typical in the diet and how you approach your effort. You have to go a long way, and it is better to be an effort that will have permanent results and leave you a way of life and not Must and not.
So reconsider your way of thinking and make the diet easier than you expected.
Set realistic and small goals
Maybe, you want to lose 1 kg, 10 or even 20 kg. The point is to take one step at a time and get results. It is more stressful to constantly have in mind that you have to reach the goal of 20 kilos, and it is easier to do it methodically by rewarding yourself every time.
Also, set side goals, i.e., in addition to losing weight, ask yourself if you ate vegetables today or if you slept enough. Do everything that a healthy lifestyle requires.
Make sure positive people surround you. It is encouraging to invest in yourself in an emotionally healthy environment. Do not hesitate to ask for support and help if you feel that you can not do it alone. Our weaknesses and fears should not be hidden, but we should bring them forward and face them.
Review your point of view
Food is not a luxury, nor is our reward a natural necessity, and consequently, physical exercise is not a punishment for your body. These are how you have to take care of and keep your body and mind strong and feel as good as possible. You deserve it.
Do not set schedules
Losing weight requires patience. It is stressful, and most likely, you will not reach your goal on a specific date that you thought, like walking a huge distance or losing 10 pounds in a month. Set daily goals, and each time add something more. The results will be obvious anyway; you will see them when the time comes. So invest in it right now!
Recognize negative thoughts and work until you overcome them. You do this inner dialogue when you look at your body in the mirror or when you are anxious and feel a tingling sensation. Accept them and consciously stop them.
At some point, you will see that your will and discipline will replace this chain of thoughts with optimistic thoughts.
Talk to yourself like you would to a good friend
You would not want to hurt a friend by setting the ideal beauty and appearance as a criterion. You deserve the same respect and devotion as anyone else.
Set goals that you can achieve each time and focus on them. If you are one of those people who have never been to a gym and want to get started, do not suddenly put yourself in an intense exercise program.
Start with something simpler and to your liking. Or do not expect that you will suddenly learn all the healthy recipes at once. Start at where you are and build further.
Love yourself right now
What is the point of waiting for the “perfect” body to accept and love your body. The point is to take care of it and accept it as it is. It’s like investing in something you didn’t like or never believed in.
Do not motivate the perfect but aim to give the best to yourself to have a better and quality life. It is a matter of self-respect and self-esteem, the main components, so that you do not stop your effort.
