How to Stop Doubting Yourself and Start Making Progress on Your Weight Loss Journey

Are you doubting that you will ever see your weight drop? I know what that feels like.  

It’s time to kill your doubts, face your fears and stop doubting yourself. When it comes to achieving your dream body you must not allow your self-doubt to get in the way of your success. It’s time to fully trust that you are taking the right steps in the right direction.  

Track Your Progress Daily

By tracking your performance on a consistent basis, you will empower yourself to see all the work you have done. Even if you aren’t seeing results right away you have a track record of how much progress you’ve made since you’ve started. Tracking will give you a boost of encouragement and motivation to keep going. It will also allow you to see what needs to be tweaked/changed along your journey to create the best possible outcome.  

Create Simple Healthy Habits

In order to see real sustainable change over time it’s vital to turn your current habits into ones that can stick with you for a lifetime. If you’re tired of spinning your wheels and not seeing the results, you’d like to see it’s time for a total life change. Instead of preparing for a short term even such as a wedding or vacation switch your mindset to, I’m in this for life and will do whatever it takes to stick with it. 

Identify Your Thought Patterns

Your thoughts have a direct impact on how you feel and look at yourself and your circumstances. By identifying your thought patterns, you give yourself an awareness of how you speak to yourself. When you can identify the negative self-talk that may be holding you back from trusting yourself you will be able to turn that self-talk into a more positive one that will ultimately serve your highest good. There is a famous quote by James Hunter “Thoughts become actions, actions become habits, habits become our characters, and our character becomes our destiny.”

As you can see, your thoughts play a major role in the way you act and feel. Write your thought patterns down as they come up anytime you feel self-doubt. Identify exactly how you speak to yourself. Write everything without filtering it out. When you have collected your thoughts down look at it from an objective perspective. Don’t beat yourself up when reviewing what has come up.  

It’s time to stop doubting your every move on your health and wellness journey. You already have every tool within to create a lifestyle change for life.
