The Psychology of Healthy Weight Loss


Healthy weight loss may be more than just a matter of proper dieting and tough workouts. Healthy weight loss has a whole other aspect to it as well, and that component is psychological.

What Are Your Reasons?

The desire for healthy weight loss will stem from emotional reasons. These reasons may be buried deep within your psyche, or you may wear them on your sleeve. Either way, it’s important to discern exactly why you want to lose weight. Write down your compelling “Reasons Why” list of why you want healthy weight loss.

It may be that you want to be able to play with your children. You might want to avoid certain diseases that run in your family. Maybe, you just want to look your best ever at your high school reunion. You might be getting married or going on a special vacation. Whatever your reasons, they are important to you and to your ultimate success.

Use Your Reasons to Set Goals

Healthy weight loss is going to be a journey for you so you need some goal posts along the way. Take your beginning point and your endpoint and divide it into sections. Each section becomes a goal point along your journey. So, if your goal is to lose twenty pounds, then you may set four, five pound goal points along the way. These milestones should also be met with rewards.

Stay the Course by Staying Motivated

Your motivation will wax and wane over the course of your healthy weight loss journey. But, if you can keep the reasons why you wanted fat loss in front of you at all times, you will feel much more motivated.

Use rewards to motivate yourself to move on to the next goal you have set. Make your rewards meaningful to you and special, and don’t give in to yourself until you reach the goal.

Keeping your mind in the game is an important aspect of your diet program. In order to achieve healthy weight loss, try to think long term. Focus on how you’re going to feel and look once you reach your goal. Think about what will be different for you and how you will act once you complete your fat loss journey. Always stay focused on the ultimate outcome and make it a priority in your life. These tips will help you stay on track and achieve your healthy weight loss dreams.
