How Negative Thoughts Lead to Bad Conclusion
Negative thinking can be your worst enemy when you are trying to reach your weight loss goals. Any time you attempt to make major lifestyle changes, either by exercising or changing your diet, you will undoubtedly fail a few times in the process. It's how you react to the mistakes you make that will determine whether or not you succeed at reaching your goals. A positive attitude and the acceptance of your own limitations will give you the motivation and the inspiration you need to make it through the most difficult times.
Even if you make a mistake, pick up where you left off and continue to move forward. Allowing yourself to continue to go off your set path only gives you an excuse to feel guilty. Acknowledge the fact that a mistake was made, forgive yourself and try to do better next time. Each time you pick yourself up and begin to move forward, the stronger your resolve will become. After awhile the mistakes become fewer and you begin to break the negative patterns that are holding you back from reaching your goals. Replacing negative patterns with positive behaviors will eventually begin to work to your advantage.
Stop Over Thinking Things
Don't dwell on your mistakes. Once you make a mistake, admit it, correct it and move on. Don't let one negative action sabotage your entire plan. If you put things in the proper perspective, it becomes easier to accept your limitations. Years of poor behavior is hard to change in the span of just a few weeks. Take for granted that a few mistakes and errors in judgment will be made and reinforce your willpower with positive affirmations that inspire you to keep going.
