Are you 40 plus and struggling to lose weight?
Are you in your 40's and have been trying to lose weight and find it an ongoing struggle? Do you often wonder why it's so hard, especially when you know you haven't over eaten and you keep fairly active?
Maybe you're looking at this the wrong way. What happens when we 'lose' something? We miss it. Often we want it back. Never say "I want to lose weight." Say, instead, "I am steadily shedding weight." "I am sculpturing my optimum body shape." "I am becoming slimmer and more athletic-looking every day." These are positive affirmations which register - if you keep up the practice - in your subconsicous mind. Once such seeds are planted there, there will be no subconsicous thought of a loss which needs to be replaced.
A statement starting off with "I am" is very powerful.
Don't dwell on thoughts of your body weight or looks. Use the affirmations and just get on with life. Try it for three months and see how you go.
Oh, and dont do a review i.e. weighing of yourself every few days - let it go the whole three months, then check it. When you plant a seed, you don't pull it up every day or so to see how it's going. Just let it grow...when it has - in this case in three months, then take a look.
I've been an active person all my life and have been the same weight since I was 18 years of age through continual exercise and moderation when it comes to diet. Weight gain can be a consequence of health and glandular problems, and I sympathise with those who suffer through no fault of their own.
In today's society though I think many many people succumb to pressure - pressure of fast food, sweet commercials, too much choice in the supermarket...and so on and so forth. Almost subconsciously people become overweight! How many times do you hear the statement...'I only have to look at a cake and I put on weight!'
I wrote a hub on this very subject. Common sense tells us that, if you eat the same amount of food get through the same amount of exercise and still put on weight you're doing something different, or wrong!! For example you may be eating the same amount but at a different time of day eg piling the calories on in the evening instead of the morning/early afternoon when there's still time to burn the calories off.
It can be a complex thing because we all have so much to fit into the day! I think the secret is to really know your intake, list the foods you eat, the amounts, and when you eat them. Do this for a week or two then try and lessen the amounts or change ever so slightly the way you cook the same foods. Get a friend or relative to help you monitor the situation!
