People don’t really struggle to lose weight. They struggle to keep it off. So, I’m going to share with you 4 crucial mindset shifts you must adopt if you’re tired of gaining weight after dieting.
1 – Think in long-term habits rather than short-term fixes
You need to change your time frame. If you look for quick fixes, you’ll only get short term results.
2 – Ignore the “new shiny objects” mindset
This may be even harder than ever. Information and fads can spread so quickly with social media. There’s always some new, sexy secret that will be the answer to all your problems.
3 – Focus on actions and the process, not just results
Weighing yourself every day is a good way to drive yourself crazy. You can do everything right and sometimes the scale will still go up!
4 – Celebrate all the little things you do well
If you went to the gym, give yourself a high five. If you ate more veggies than you did last week, congratulate yourself. Action is everything. Additionally, when you develop your focus, you’re less vulnerable to the distractions of shiny objects.
When you focus and celebrate your actions, those actions are more likely to become habit. And habits equal results that stick.
