I often read that positive thinking and good mood help to get rid of excess weight. Easy to say. How to achieve it then? In other words how do not to be upset trying to get rid of excess weight?
First let’s make clear what are the main reasons of bad mood that connected directly with weight loss?
1. You don’t lose weight but add.
It is the most frequent reason that upset those who want to get rid of excess weight. Why? Who likes that after a week of diet following you still have the same weight. You truly adhered to all diet recommendations, refused yourself in delicatessen. And what? Nothing! Nobody likes it.
What to do?
You must analyze the situation in this case and understand if you made a mistake?
If you follow diet already some time you noticed that it is much easier to lose first kilos/pounds. After that comes a period when your scales show stubbornly the same figures. It is completely normal.
Your organism must get accustomed to your new weight. Now you need more time to burn fat. Don’t despair but continue to follow diet plan. Don’t stand on scales too often. Check your weight 1-2 times per 2 weeks.
When you see the same size of your waist then make some exercises you really like. This way you will burn some calories that make you glad in any case. In addition physical activity helps to produce hormone serotonin that effects good on our mood.
2. Breaking diet.
Apples became loathsome; cucumbers are already not so flavored. You can’t see buckwheat more. How to improve your mood? Of course through sweeties and something tasty! You curl up on the sofa. You are full and content. Then horrible thought strikes you. I broke the diet! How do not to be upset here? The situation is a bit more complicated. But something can be done and must be done.
First get up and go for a walk. That will make distance between you and fridge longer and help you to burn some calories. You will feel yourself better definitely. You will have time to analyze the situation and find right decision. Don’t blame yourself hard. It was not your last chance. Return to your diet plan. Nothing is lost. The whole life is ahead.
