A Positive Mood for Better Weight
It's important to keep in mind that you are in control of your mood most of the time! For example, when you wake up in the morning are your thoughts positive or negative? Do you moan and groan about having to get up or do you look forward to the start of a new day and what it will bring?
A negative attitude results in a plummeting mood which results in either slow weight loss or no weight loss at all. When you focus on the negative almost all of the time it will sabotage your efforts to lose weight. You might wonder how? It makes you either overeat or binge. It will cause you to feel like you're wasting your time in exercising or working out. You'll be more susceptible to giving up because negative emotions take too much energy. And this means you'll have less energy to try and focus on eating better and exercising more.
On the other hand, a positive attitude can help you lose weight! A positive mind will help you feel motivated and empowered about what you are doing (no matter how slow the results).
Make sure you're aware of your own daily thought habits. To see if you're a habitual negative thinker, take a week to write down every time you have a negative thought (about anything, not just your weight). You can either write the thought out (best if you want to find out what's really bothering you), or just keep a tally of the number of negative thoughts. It will take time to change your thought process, but awareness will be the first step.
Once you're aware, take the time to find a positive thought to combat the negative one. The more you do it, the more you'll naturally think positively. This will also help you to NOT overeat or binge when you're facing negative situations.
Look at your environment and make sure you're not surrounded by negative, pessimistic and critical people. If you have relationships that aren't supportive of you and your goals, you may have to consider letting these relationships go.
Do what you can to avoid negativity by joining into conversations and arguments. Gravitate by more uplifting, empowering, encouraging and positive people and situations.
After a few weeks you should realize that you're feeling better. You may even feel more positive, powerful and stronger mentally and emotionally.
