Most dieters have been on countless weight-loss programs, from the various celebrity diets and Jenny Craig to Weight Watchers and Nutrisystems. You feverishly read books and magazines for tips on weight loss and pursue the advertisements and headlines that assure fast weight loss. There’s a good probability that many of these diets have actually helped to lose weight, but the odds are better that all that weight has come back with a few extra for good measure. Your smaller waist became your muffin top, and your favorite outfit got pushed to the back of your wardrobe.
You probably begin to believe the self talk that said you failed at losing weight. To be more specific, the diet has let you down. The reason being is that most diets deliver short-term weight loss using temporary changes, but don’t deal with the underlying reasons that caused you to gain the weight to begin with. Most of these diets focus on the cover of the book, your body, and disregard the pages, you’re thinking, emotions, and lifestyle.
If you want a smaller waist for years to come, you need a mentor or advisor who will guide you on an expedition to uncover the control and willpower that you have. You then need to learn how to manipulate those powers to get what you want in life, including a smaller waist. You may have been told either subconsciously or directly that if you have no power over your eating habits, you have no power period. This is far from the truth. We are all exceptional human beings, filled with strength, physically, socially, and emotionally, just waiting to be let loose. When you cure all emotional wounds, and realize and build on the strength within you, you have made great strides in setting yourself up for permanent weight loss.
If you find weight loss and dieting to be a bummer, the odds are you won’t succeed in achieving your goals. However, if you have a plan to follow that enriches you and is also enjoyable, you have the means to succeed. Actually, by implementing a weight loss plan that you enjoy, you can lose a size in two weeks. How’s that for a smaller waist.
The answer is to incorporate a proven exercise regimen that you can add to your lifestyle right now. Don’t forget, practicality, simplicity, and a clear understanding of what you want and how you intend to get it equals success. Then, include meal plans that go hand-in-hand with your fitness program to build on the improvements you have made to the inner you, your thoughts and emotions, to unleash your personal power. Remember that with the proper mentoring you can go far beyond getting a smaller waist through dieting, you can and will excel in all aspects of life and achieve and maintain a physical beauty that matches your inner magnificence.
