Loosing weight is much about motivation and mental toughness. I’ll teach you the easy ways to become a performer.

Write down your goals

You have heard this hundred of times, and it sounds silly. But wait.. did you actually do it?
Write down all negative things about loosing weight. What is so negative about it anyway? You will feel pain for not being allowed to eat that doughnut, and…. what else?
What about the positive things? Better self-confidence, more attractive, avoiding all the diseases related to overweight, make a better impression, feel more happy? You name it.
There are plenty of positive things related to weight loss. Try to think about the positive things and then write them down, no matter how much you want to taste that doughnut.

Just do it

Some people have a tendency to set up a special date when their diet and exercising is about to begin. I say that’s bullshit. You do it now or you won’t do it all. If you can’t do it right now, then you’re not motivated enough.
Attitude is very important. Now I’m going to tell you a very valuable thing. The biggest factor in succeeding (no matter what you’re trying to do), is just doing it!
Just do it and never make up excuses. If you can learn that and do it at all times without any hesitation, we are talking mental toughness big time.

Don’t give up

Some people loose weight easily, some don’t. It doesn’t matter which type you are, because you can do nothing about it.
There is no point in giving up, it won’t save you any trouble by thinking “I will do it later”. The day will come when you’re back for a new try and that day, perhaps you will just feel bad about yourself and feel kinda unmotivated. “Why didn’t I do this before?”
However, if you give up (which you most likely will), start from zero and prove for yourself that you’re mentally stronger now.

Find a mentor

He (or she) will help you to achieve your weight loss goal and become tough mentally. Don’t find a parrot who haven’t even succeeded himself. Find someone who know what they are talking about and got some REAL experience.
Always learn new stuff. Knowledge will really help you along the way, although it’s not the biggest factor in loosing weight since the “loosing-weight principle” is really simple – don’t eat crap and do some exercising.

Start with moving when you get up in the morning

It is really a benefit to take a morning walk just before or after breakfast. It doesn’t have to be that long, just about 20 minutes and you will feel more focused and energized the whole day. If you don’t like the cold, try cardio exercises at home.
