3 Steps For Developing A Powerful Mindset For Weight Loss

So, you’ve been trying to lose weight for a while now.

You see others do it. And it seems like everyone makes it look so easy.

But for some reason, losing weight keeps eluding you. Every time you get close to your idea bodyweight, something happens and you end up back where you started.

Not this time.

Because this time you’re going to be armed with the same tips that the best personal fitness trainers know and teach to their clients.

Your mind can be a great asset to your both your short and long-term weight loss success. When you are focused and highly motivated, your mind gives you confidence and strength to face any situation. On the other hand, when things are not going too well, your brain habitually switches to a negative mode.

The result is that you become riddled with self-doubt, depressed and lose focus and faith in yourself. The upside is that you can learn to condition your mind. If you do that successfully, you are more likely to stay in a positive state for longer periods of time, which can help you get things back on track when things do not go your way.

In this brief article, I will provide you three simple but extremely powerful steps for developing your mindset that can help you burn your extra pounds right off of your body…

But remember, ultimately weight loss begins in your mind, so don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!

I’d highly advise you to take these steps very serious, because they really are what make the difference between weight loss success and failure.

Let’s jump right into the first step…


Step 1: Write out your reasons why you must melt those extra pounds off:

Any personal trainer worth their weight in gold would have you list your reasons why you must lose weight as your starting point. These reasons are what will provide you with the drive to continue pushing forward when you hit plateaus such as not losing as much weight as you hoped.

Below are some great examples that you could list…

Example 1: I won’t be embarrassed to go out in public anymore
Example 2: I will not be the butt of all the fat jokes
Example 3: My family will no longer be embarrassed to be seen out in public with me

Can you see how making this simple list and referring to them can provide you with the momentum to not quit?

Let’s keep this moving and go to step two…

Step 2: Write out scenarios you envision being in with your newly sculpted body, so you can visualize them (present and future scenarios):

This is what we call “Future Pacing.”

In this step you are creating the future in advance using words that will allow you to visualize how you will look before accomplishing your weight loss goals.

Like Tony Robbins stated, “Your Mind Can’t Tell the Difference between Something You Imagine and Something that’s Real.”

Why not use this self-manipulation in a powerful way to your advantage?

Why not see yourself with the body you’ve dreamt of before you have it, because this will also make you feel good and add to the momentum of Step 1?

Let me provide you with a few examples to stimulate your mind to help you list your own…

Example 1: Getting compliments from family and friends you haven’t seen in awhile
Example 2:
People coming up to you asking you out on dates
Example 3: Your significant other drooling all over you for the first time in a long time

I don’t know about you, but those examples would make me exciting and drive me to want to continue doing the activities necessary to lose weight.

Let wrap this up by blasting through to the third step…

Step 3: Write out scenarios of how you will act when approached by others that ask you how did you lose the weight, so you can visualize them:

I don’t care who you are, everyone loves to be paid compliments…

Even those folks who try to act as if they don’t care.

When someone approaches you and ask how you did it, that’s the ultimate compliment.

It’s at this moment that you know that you’ve accomplished your weight loss goals and it’s at this moment that you should be celebrating.

By now you’ve probably figured out that I love providing examples.

Example 1: I can see myself at work being asked where did I get the inspiration and motivation to take my life changing journey.

Example 2: I can imagine being at a family or friend gathering with them all flocked around me in total disbelief at how much weight I’ve loss and asking, “What have you been doing to drop all those pounds?”

Example 3: I can imagine walking into the gym and having the employees and members stare in disbelief at my transformation and then coming up to me asking me all the details of how I dropped all of those extra pounds.

I know that at this point you can see how powerful making these list are.

In summary: Developing a powerful mindset for weight loss is actually fairly simple when you apply the above three steps. So let me leave you with one last tip…

I highly encourage you to take action right now by completing the 3 Steps For Developing A Powerful Mindset For Weight Loss, because they are based upon what works and not theory.

So get to it – you’re going to be glad you did!
