There are many reasons why people struggle to lose weight. From having a love of snacking to being a little lazy for your own good, making the weight disappear is tough.
But while exercising and dieting is physical, weight loss is also mental. People often forget this aspect because they are so focused on getting to the gym or eating the right type of foods—or not doing either. Many experts believe that your emotional state can help or hinder your weight loss.
So what should you do? Well, for starters, quit being so negative if you want to succeed in your weight loss goals. Sure, it doesn’t sound like it will help you now, but you’d be surprised how many people hinder their own success with negativity. Most people don’t even realize that they are body shaming themselves. In fact, many studies have shown that your thoughts matter when it comes to your waistline.
Our advice to you is stop with the negative, “I’m fat” chat. We know, easier said than done right? Being positive is the best thing you can do aside from exercising regularly and eating healthy to whittle your waist. Positivity is key!
