Self help weight loss. No pills, no packaged food, no guru, no counselor, no hype just you, your knowledge, and your will power. Think you can do it? If you think you can -- you're right. If you think you can not -- you're right.
Traveling down the self help path is not for the faint hearted. It is not for those who are not serious about their goals. Why set yourself up for a failure? If you are not convinced that you can do it, don't bother. When you end up failing, you'll only reinforce the idea that you are a failure and that you can't do it. Nothing could be further from the truth.
You CAN do it. You don't need anything but a little BAM. It would also be incredibly helpful if you could simply reprogram your mind to:
Does that sound like fantasy? It isn't.
The best self help weight loss technique there is here. It has nothing to do with food, or exercise. Does that grab your attention? It should. It's quite revolutionary. Would you like to know what the best self help weight loss technique is?
It is so simple that most people over look it as being impossible. Too bad for them -- they're probably still over weight. The single most important technique in the battle of the bulge, your self help weight loss program, involves a weapon you have that you don't know how to use.
There is a story about a man who has to face an evil foe and feels powerless to overcome. His foe hurts and hunts him with out mercy. What the hero doesn't realize is that he has on his person a weapon of profound power. In the end he realizes the potential of this awesome weapon and with it he destroys his enemy. But not before he has to suffer indignities galore.
Your story is quite similar. You have probably been struggling with weight for some time. Perhaps it is such a problem that you are really suffering. Physically, mentally, and emotionally. When you finally realize what your secret weapon is and the amazing power it has you're going to be full of joy. Then you will feel bad because of all the time that has slipped by needlessly. Don't let another second go by on the clock without finding out what this weapon is and how to use it. Get your self help weight loss program moving.
But first let's take a look at something else: your enemy...
Do you realize that your mind is your merciless enemy in this battle? It's true. No one is forcing you to be sedentary. No one is making you eat. So who, or what is? Well, it's your mind isn't it? The only valid conclusion is that your mind is betraying you and making you fat. How absurd is that?
Don't believe it? Think about it again. Is there some outside force pressing in on you making you eat the wrong foods? Is there some unseen hand making you sit on the couch all the time? Is there some nefarious evil plot out there being worked against you? The obvious and sane answer to all those questions is 'no'.
So who's to blame? Your mind is. It is a very difficult thing to have to admit failure, to accept ownership and claim responsibility. Until you do, you will remain right where you are. Ready to move on? Had enough of being unfit, unhealthy, and uncomfortable? Keep reading...
Have you guessed what the weapon is? Here's a hint: It resides between your ears. Yes, that's right its your brain. Your mind. Huh? how can your mind be your worst enemy and this amazing, incredible, powerful, weapon? Seems like a contradiction doesn't it?
Think about any other weapon. Any weapon can be used for good or ill. A soldier can use his weapon against the enemy or he can turn it on his comrades and use it against them. The weapon has no will of it's own. Does this mean your mind has no will? Certainly not!
Your mind requires a bit of understanding so you'd do well to read some more about it. In a nut shell here's how it works. Your conscious mind is the seat of your will power -- this is where you decide what you are going to do and when. Your subconscious mind serves up behaviours that represent your most dominant thoughts. Any self help weight loss program that doesn't promote this isn't going to succeed in the long run.
Make sense? No? Ok, lets look at an example. You decide to make a new years resolution: I'm going to lose weight. You've decided to do it and that's all there should be to it, right? Nope. Two weeks later, if you last that long, you're back on the couch eating potato chips. Why?
The reason is because your subconscious mind is what drives your behaviour, not your conscious mind. Yes, you can decide to do something and for a few days maintain the momentum but eventually you'll fall off. What is happening is that your new decision is not part of your subconscious mind, it isn't congruent. So your subconscious mind does every thing it can to sabotage you. And it will definitely sabotage your self help weight loss program.
You see your fabulous, incredible, powerful weapon has been trained to produce a certain result -- eat poorly, and don't exercise. The result is excess weight.
Train your weapon? Yes. Train your weapon on a new target. Up till now your weapon has been trained on producing excess weight. But the good news is that you can train your weapon on the true enemy (fat) not your comrade (your body). To get onto the path of self help weight loss and experience success, you are going to have to program your mind to support you. Otherwise it will work against you.
