Use Your Mind To Lose Weight
If you have been overweight for a long time and you have tried every diet and exercise program in existence but fail to get any meaningful results you need to read this article, I firmly believe it will change your life and your body!
First if you have a certain idea how your body should look like -you will most likely be miserable! Your body is as it should be! Yes this is true even if you are 50 pounds oversight, right now it is where it should be!
Use the body you have!
Because this is the body that God has given you! So use it and enjoy it!
And if you love it, it will start changing by itself! Right now, it won't change because you hate it! And because you hate it, you hold that "hate in mind" " and like I have said many times before, what you hold in mind is what you get!
You are fat and you hate being fat, so you hold the image of being fat in your mind and so you become fatter and fatter!
So first step! Start loving your body -as it is now! If you do, you will find it changing, because if you love your body you will start taking care if it and care encompasses everything!
If you love your body, you care about it and so you won't stuff it with the wrong types of foods. And if you care about it you won't starve the body either! When you love your body, you will listen to its demands; to its every need- you will listen to what it wants and when it wants it!
When you care, when you love your body, you become attuned to your body and your body will automatically become ok!
Now if you hate your body, you will create a problem because without knowing you will become indifferent to your body! And worse still you will neglect its upkeep, because lets face it, who cares about the enemy?
You will not look at your body, you will not care how it feels or behaves, you will avoid contact with it and pretend it is not there, you will stop listening to the messages it gives you and you will hate it more and more.
But you are creating a vicious "fat" cycle!
The body never creates problems; it is the mind that does it! Think about it for a second, no animal has a body image problem, no animal, not even the elephant as a body image problem! They are happy with their bodies because there is no mind telling them that they have imperfect bodies. Otherwise you would have elephants going around with serous inferiority complexes, but animal don't think of the body as we do!
So here is what to do? Drop the ideal body! And love the body you now have! I am not saying don't change it I am saying love it right now! Love your imperfections. You have to love it and take care of it when you do; you will start being conscious of what you eat, how you exercise and how you treat it!
Take care of the body and it will become beautiful. It is a complex machine and all it needs is self love and attention, it goes on working without you help, even at sleep it works. It goes on functioning even if you are unaware and it does so silently. So you should be grateful to your body!
Love your body now and I guarantee you in a few short months you will see your body transform!
It is just like falling in love with a woman, you might not have cared about your body but when you fall in love, you will do all you can to get in shape to please her!
The same thing happens when you love your body! All of a sudden you get this burst of energy that motivates you to do little things that will transform your body.
