The following information is concerned to motivation and psychology of losing weight. The concept belongs to Ms. Mirimanova (System “Minus 60″).
Here are 15 recommendations, which probably will help you to start losing kilos, without any stops.
1. You have to start right now! Tomorrow never comes, same as next Monday. If you are reading this page, means you’ve made the first step, so continue to walk step by step, and you’ll definitely see the result.
2. Stop blaming yourself for your extra-weight. Everything what happened in our lives has some reasons and consequences. It’s not important what you used to do. The thing is what you are doing at the moment, to eliminate a problem, and what you can achieve.
3. My weight loss is the question of order, not the will power. If I didn’t eat anything for two years and lost 60 kilos – that would be strength of will. But I ate absolutely all! I just followed some rules, which I created for myself. It’s not that difficult, as it can seem from the first view – you’ll get used to it.
4. It’s normal, that some days you can eat more than usual. A high influence on the woman’s body affects the hormonal factor, so some days you will have a wish to eat more. Try to increase the morning and afternoon amount of food these days, so it’d be easier for you to avoid extra meal in the evening.
5. Don’t think of a reason for losing weight. Find the spring of energy inside yourself. Decide to lose weight for yourself and do at least anything, step by step, having your great aim in front of you.
6. Any action bears the contra-action. So don’t become fanatic. Do only those things, you can go through, eat as much, as you need. Making the system to hard for yourself, you’ll probably start to lose weight a bit quicker, but the lost because of stress kilos will come back very quickly.
7. Don’t expect immediate results. You’ve been gaining this weight not in one day, so be prepared to lose it little by little.
8. Don’t make too high targets and don’t make too strict boarders for yourself. Your body knows how much it can lose on this stage of life. And probably your imagination about the possible amounts is different.
9. Stop telling yourself: “I won’t be able!”. You can, even if you lose not 60 kilos, but 5 – anyway you will look only better. The phrase “I won’t be able” doesn’t affect your weight. The kilos leave you only because some of your actions.
10. Any problem can be solved! Don’t think of the possible wrinkles or stretch marks, or the quality of skin after a weight-loss. Better think of the changes in your life and about the fact, how much easier it will be for you to move without extra-weight. If you are working on your skin, it won’t lose its elasticity a lot.
11. Lots of people won’t believe in you. Don’t go on provocations from the side of your close people and follow the way till your aim. I do believe even in you, because you need the support… as you probably have never needed. Believe in yourself – that’s the most important. Exactly in yourself, not in the result.
12. Keep the global aim in your head, as some dream, but not as a guide to actions. When I started to lose weight, deep in my soul I was hoping to fall off a lot, but I made myself realistic aims: first – reach the point 100 kilos, than – less than a hundred, 90 kilos, etc. Then you won’t be permanently disappointed, because it’s so far till you dreams come true. Vice versa – you will be glad to the victories you already have.
13. If you meet some old acquaintances, and they let themselves some comments about the weight you gained, or somebody told you something unpleasant, if you’re upset or depressed – this is not the reason to eat! You will be only worse in the morning, when you realize that you overate yesterday evening.
14. Love yourself as you are! If you gained weight, that doesn’t mean you are bad. This is the reason to correct the situation, not more. You shouldn’t miscall your reflection in the mirror – this won’t help the process, I bet it will make the situation only worse.
15. The person, who wishes will find 100 opportunities, the one who doesn’t want will find 100 reasons. Remember about it, when you think of a reason next time, why you can’t continue to lose weight.
