Your mindset is everything when it comes to setting a goal, including losing weight. If you have negative feelings about attempting to eat healthier or moving your body, then it will be challenging to keep moving forward toward your goal. Then it feels like a chore that you are forcing yourself into, not something you want to do. Weight loss and body image are connected and shifting your ideas about your body, may be able to move you into a healthier mindset regarding your weight-loss goals.
This is where the phrase “nothing changes if nothing changes” really comes in. In order to achieve different results in your wellness or weight loss journey, changes in routine and mind-set need to be made. How you view those changes and act on them, will determine your success.
As you continue on your journey to lose a little weight and improve your overall health, you will notice that your lifestyle is going to change. This doesn’t mean drastic lifestyle changes where you barely recognize your life, but little micro habits that gradually help you become a healthier person.
