Weight Loss Inspiration

Here are 8 empowering beliefs that can inspire you to achieve lasting weight management!
???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? There is no such thing as “effortless weight loss.”

The promises in magazines, infomercials and all over your Facebook feeds are holding our false promises that cost you time, money, and faith in yourself and perhaps even your health! Even weight loss surgery requires effort on your part. Unless you’re sick and lose weight because of poor health, weight loss takes effort. You will have to work to lose weight, but the work can be pleasant and the payoff worth the effort and more!


2.?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????You can’t fail! Sometimes you win, sometimes you learn something to help you win next time.

When your plan doesn’t end with the result you wanted that’s not failure, it’s learning. You learned what doesn’t work. Now take time to examine the chain of events that lead to your lesson so that you can see what you need to change to win next time.


3.????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????Every day really is a good day to have a good day!

Keep that thought in your head and no matter what happens, no matter what weight loss challenges you face, you can make choices to keep your good day good. Bad days are not a matter or circumstances, but rather a matter of how you react to circumstances!


4.???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????The road to weight loss is not without obstacles.

Some of the obstacles you, yourself, will put in your way Some obstacles will be put there by somebody else. When you are pressured to stray from your weight loss plan, just remember it’s okay to say “no” so that you say “yes” to your MVP – Most Valuable Person!




Fill your toolbox full of ideas for success!

When you surround yourself with people who have similar goals and challenges you get great ideas. These ideas become tools. Stash them in your “toolbox for success.” You’ll have a few tools of your own, and by sharing ideas with others you may discover very effective tools you never found on your own. Take advantage of learning from others. Weight loss isn’t easy, get all the help you can get!

You will run into problems.

That’s part of the process. Problems have solutions and discovering the solution pushes you from the wrong path back onto the right path. Don’t fear your problems, face them. Let them keep you going in the right direction!


You have enthusiasm inside of you.

It’s an inner resource that you have used many times to get what you want, to learn something new, and to master a skill. Enthusiasm can help you to lose weight and keep it off too. If you have trouble getting and hanging onto your enthusiasm for weight loss Weight Watchers meetings can change that. Weight Watchers meetings are excitement with inspiration, motivation, and more than a pinch of creativity.
