We would all like to lose weight quickly and easily. However, the majority of the time this is not always a reality. When you want to lose weight and keep it off in a healthy way it takes time and patience. So many people are using various weight loss aids such as diet pills and diuretics to lose weight. All of these unhealthy avenues for weight loss will only further the yoyo cycle of dieting. So you may be asking yourself how you can begin to watch the weight and inches disappear. Below is the starting point at which you can begin to see weight loss results.

So the big question you may be asking yourself is where you should start if you want to lose weight in a healthy way. To start you have to change your frame of mind. You need to develop new thoughts and turn them into actions throughout your daily lives. So how do you know if you are ready to begin this weight lose journey? First ask yourself what is the main reason you want to lose weight. If you have a strong desire to lose weight for any reason then you are ready.

To begin losing excess weight you must first mentally prepare yourselves for the journey you are about to embark on. There are three essential steps in this process. First you will begin to learn new behavioral patterns and be willing to follow through daily. You will have to start changing your thought pattern in order to produce weight loss. Lastly, these first two steps need to become a primary part of our lives. This part of the process is not an easy fix. We have spent most of our lives warped by negative thought patterns. It will be difficult to achieve positive thoughts patterns. However, you are fully capable of taking charge of your life and watching the weight disappear.

One thing that most people do not realize is that losing weight should be become a lifestyle and not an obsession. If dieting becomes an obsession you will never be able to see the weight disappear. That is why the next step to watching weight disappear is to focus on yourself and the things that bring you enjoyment in your life. In order to begin enjoying your life you should know what brings you happiness.

To begin getting the most out of life and as a result lose weight, write a list of activities that provide you with that feel good feeling. Although eating does bring us enjoyment, the list should not include this activity.

Some examples of activities include talking with friends, dancing, reading, traveling and spending time with family. While you are making your list you should think about the things that make you happy and excited. What are the activities that you do that make you feel at peace with yourself? Your list should include at least ten activities.

Now that you have made this list you might be wondering how to use it, and why you made the list in the first place.

For starters, the list is used to help you focus on activities you enjoy. You will use this list as a guide to help yourself as you begin to devote time to you. Every day pick one activity on the list and dedicate a minimum of a half hour to this activity.

The reason for dedicating time to yourself is to help nurture yourself and your emotions. You will begin to feel a sense of accomplishment. These activities will help you through the times when you want to eat even though you are not hungry.

You have the ability to lose weight and inches. There are some steps that you must complete in order for the “no diet” approach to work. You must begin by mentally changing your view of dieting and the world around you. You can then begin to fulfill your emotional needs with satisfying activities instead of food.
