Don't start a diet plan without mentally preparing first. To lose weight fast and achieve that quick weight loss you need to be in the right frame of mind. You could be doomed if you enter into a diet plan without first mentally preparing for it.
Quick weight loss is possible. Everyone knows that. But the challenge is keeping the pounds and inches off. And that takes the right mental attitude and social support. I've worked with hundreds of people who want to lose weight fast, but the most successful ones - the ones who keep the weight off - are the ones who have the correct disposition before starting.
I recommend the following three mindset tips for permanent weight loss:
Surround yourself with the right people.
You need to understand that you will need to make some different lifestyle choices to keep the weight off. And that may very well mean not be able to socialize with others who can be a negative influence. Research was recently completed that showed you are more likely to adopt your friends eating habits and body image by hanging around them. So that means if 4 of your 6 friends are overweight and eat like crap you are more likely to eat like crap and start to gain weight to match them as well. The same is true if 4 of your 6 friends were thin and ate healthy. You are more likely to follow their habits. So make sure you associate yourself with like-minded people. Your successful weight loss depends on it.
Don't expect it to be easy.
While losing weight doesn't have to be a chore, you need to come to grips with the fact that it is going to take effort. Anything worth doing never is. Accept the fact there will be some tough times ahead. That is why it is so important to surround yourself with positive people. They will help support you when you face obstacles. Remember each day is a new day and you should take it one day at a time for quick weight loss. Start each day with your goals in mind and a plan to achieve those goals for that day. Don't lose sight of those goals and keep working towards them each and every day.
Don't expect the rapid fat loss results to last forever.
The rate at which you lose fat will eventually slow down because your body will just have no more fat to lose. The challenge now becomes how do you maintain your new quick weight loss and keep it from returning. I teach many people how to lose weight fast, but most importantly I teach them how to keep it off for a lifetime. Many diets can get you to lose the weight, but the key is to keep the weight off. Make sure you make the proper lifestyle changes so that you create permanent weight loss and never have to diet again.
