Would you like to know how to make losing weight, no matter how many pounds, as simple as brushing your teeth? When you wake up in the morning or go to bed at night, do you dread having to brush your teeth? I know when I was a little kid, I hated to have to brush my teeth, but now it is not something I even think about. I just do it.
Imagine if your weight loss and weight management could be just something you do naturally. Not something that stresses you out, gets you upset, and makes you complain, “Why are other people so lucky they don’t have to deal with this?”
Let’s face it, “having to lose a couple of pounds” whether it’s a few of pounds or in the three digits, the process is not, “Yea, I won the lottery, what fun.” Having to lose weight can easily become an overwhelming event that bothers you all the time, crumbles your self confidence, is dangerous to your health, and if that wasn’t enough, it undermines your love life.
So, back to when I was a little one and brushing my teeth. I hated to brush my teeth, but then something changed. It wasn’t until I gave up fighting against brushing my teeth and accepted that is a very important thing for me to do, that it all changed.
Very shortly after that decision, brushing my teeth became a habit that I did in the morning and at night without even thinking about it. The action of brushing my teeth didn’t change, but my reaction to having to brush my teeth did and it made all the difference.
So, how does this apply to losing weight? What if there are three actions you can take that once they are made into habits, your weight loss will become natural and you wouldn’t even have to think about? You will get to be the person that everyone else envies saying, “Why is it so easy for him/her to look so great?”
Would it be worth it to accept these three new actions into your life and make them habits, if they will guarantee effortless weight loss that you don’t even have to think about?
How about if those actions also provide outstanding health?
I must warn you that there will be a level of discomfort in making these actions into habits, only because you are in the habit of not doing them. Normally, people mislabel this as hard, when in reality, it just feels different because it is new.
But feeling different is a good thing. That means you are changing and opening the doors to your new life. Are you ready to find out what those actions are? They are not earth shattering, but you can not get around them and until you accept them and turn them into habits, you will end up fighting natural laws and struggling the rest of your life.
Finally, those three actions are; consistent exercise, eating healthy, and reduction of stress. Simple? Yes, but stay with me here. Imagine if you did consistently take these three actions and they became habits. We are talking about taking the above actions without thinking and without feeling that you are getting deprived.
It’s easy to say your weight loss would be effortless; however, the only real road blocks are turning those actions to habits. Unfortunately, we were not taught a systematic means to destroy old habits and build powerful new ones.
I invite you to stop the struggle of fighting against the natural laws of the human body. One way or another, it will all come back to consistent exercise, eating healthy and reduction of stress, to achieve lasting results. Turn those simple actions into habits and you will end your weight loss struggles forever.
