There are three distinct types of weight loss aids:

2. Auditory aids and
3. Kinaesthetic aids
The bad news is: Willpower and self-discipline is an essential factor in achieving weight loss success, And it is up to you, and you alone to discover those aids that will help you stick to your weight management program for the rest of you life.
The good news is: There are a huge variety of dieting aids available to facilitate the task of losing those surplus pounds and keeping it off.
Visual Weight Loss Aids
Visual weight reduction aids are extremely useful. A picture of yourself at your ideal weight can provide the visual stimulus you need. Or looking at the beautiful evening gown or snazzy bikini you want to fit into or even a picture of runners arriving at the finish line of the fun-run you want to complete. . . any of these may do the trick. Whatever you are working towards, whether it is losing weight or improving your health, make your dieting aids visual.
Put your picture up in a conspicuous place at work or at home where you can see it often. So that when you feel discouraged, this will remind you of your weight loss goal and will help you keep your commitment.
Auditory Weight Loss Aids
Auditory aids can be as powerful as visual ones, if not more powerful. For example, negative people bring you down and lower your self-esteem. Get these negative people out of your life.
The most effective auditory slimming aids must be weight loss hypnosis cd ‘s.
There are many weight loss hypnosis CD ‘s, MP3's and other downloads available on the internet today. They are easy to use, some are even available for immediate download. They can be used in your own time and at your own pace. Some are more effective than others, so only buy from reputable dealers.
Kinaesthetic Weight Loss Aids
An very effective kinaesthetic/tactile aid is to sign a weight management contract. People who write their goals down are far more likely to succeed than people who focus mentally on their weight loss goals.
Putting something in writing somehow makes it more binding. In the contract, you should include a reward (not food-related) that you will give yourself once you have accomplished your dieting goal.
So put up your picture, download your recordings, and sign your contract:
I, _ hereby vow to keep moving toward my weight loss goal of _ (losing x pounds in x weeks) regardless of any obstacles or challenges I may have to face.
I understand that challenges are transitory and temporary. I vow to use all of my mental and physical resources to overcome them, and I refuse to be intimidated, discouraged or cowed by self-doubt.
I will persevere no matter what, knowing undeniably that I have the power to overcome any temptation.
Signed and dated: _
Lack of motivation happens to us all, but if you do not motivate yourself to reach your goals, no one else will. It is important to keep your eye on your weight management goals, find the appropriate weight loss aids to keep you going, and in no time, your efforts will be rewarded.
