How Identifying The Benefits Of Losing Weight Help To Lose Weight

Do you want to lose weight but finding it difficult to do so? Then try to identify what you stand to gain when you lose weight, to motivate your weight loss effort.

By making a list of what you will benefit from losing weight will spur you towards being dedicated and focus. For instance, you wouldn’t want to give up chocolates unless you know what you stand to gain if you do so. In other words, if you know what you would gain, probably because you made a list of them, you are likely going to be serious about it and lose more. This approach is different from focusing on what you have to give up. Focusing on what you have to give up sometimes don’t work because when something is taken away from us, sometimes we miss those things and crave for them and fall back on them after sometime.  That is why we are humans!

If you really want to lose weight, you must take action and stop those habits or eating habits that would cause you to gain weight and focus on those activities that would cause weight loss. And you know this is not easy if you are not motivated. To get motivated, or inspired, you have to make a list of what you will gain which will act as a reminder if you are lazy about it or couldn’t allow some habits go.

If for instance on your list you want to become or participate in a beauty pageant, or you want that dress to fit on your body perfectly well, or you want to have that slim body like your favourite celebrity, or you just want to improve your health. This list will act as a reminder to you anytime you are going off track. This may not necessary be a list, sometimes a mental picture of what you would gain also help. This will help you give up that excess chocolate eating or excessive eating habit. Most times, this is usually what you enjoy.

This approach has helped many people lose weight. Some has done so subconsciously.
