I hate to confess this, I feel like quitting. I don't actually getting a 'real' started with this juice fasting plan. I just begin the plan, and mess it up sometimes. Yet now I feel like giving up. I feel bored with the plan, and I missed to eat certain types of food - pork noodle soup, pasta salad, dim sum, fast food...don't make me continue. The list could go on and on. Old habits are hard to break.

I just have to go back to my Why I Want to Lose Weight list and be refreshed with my weight loss mission. Do you ever feel like giving up the whole weight loss plan and exercise thing? I found this helpful hints on Mind Power News, How to win the weight loss battle of mind. Head over to the website to read further. I just highlight some of the tricks here.

1. Be patient, don't stress

Losing weight in any kind of healthy way is going to take time. Give yourself a break and relax, and the weight will come off. Stressing about weight loss will likely only make it harder to lose. 

2. Break the cycle of excuses

We all make excuses to try to justify our behavior, but these kinds of excuses aren’t doing you any favors when it comes to weight loss. Force yourself to accept your failures and work to improve them. 

3. Make the decision to be thinner

Sometimes all it takes is a firm resolution to make a change in your life. If you want to lose weight, make the choice to do so and let your actions follow suit.

4. Take responsibility

No one is forcing food down your throat or keeping you from the gym. Once you realize that and can take responsibility for your own actions regarding your health and fitness, you’ll be one step closer to meeting your goals. 

5. Look at the bright side

Setbacks don’t have to ruin your motivation for weight loss. Instead, think of them as a chance to work harder and prove your commitment to your goals. 

6. Eat foods you crave

You can have foods you crave while you’re trying to lose weight if you can do so in moderation. Keeping things totally off limits could cause you to binge. 

7. Change how you think about your body

If you think you are a fat person, you’ll likely stay that way. Train your mind to see yourself as attractive at any weight and you’ll see more weight loss progress. 

8. Picture yourself wearing something you’ve always wanted to wear

See what you want, get what you see: Visualize weight loss activates  the creative powers of your subconscious mind.

A big reason many people want to lose weight is to fit into the clothes and style that they love and admire. Get a mental picture of how you’ll look sporting something you’ve always wanted to wear to give you some motivation. 

9. Breathe deeply and calm yourself

Once you’re calm, relaxed, and in control of your mind and body, you’ll be able to start thinking clearly about who and where you want to be.

  1. Great post. Not sure that I have anything beyond what you've written. Not so sure I would do a juice fast for more than a few days. Seems dangerous to me. I'd recommend consulting your doctor or nutritionist. :-)

    1. Yes, fasting is quiet extreme actually. But I believe the power of fasting, not only for weight loss but for spiritual breakthrough. Anyway, I appreciate your nice thought. :) Looking forward to see you visit again soon.

  2. Great post. I think having the mindset of changing your lifestyle or eating habits rather than a diet is what works for me and my family. We eat healthy, we have just adopted the idea of eating six small meals a day. When we do "cheat", it's okay. It's all about moderation. Good for you, btw!

    1. Thanks for the lovely thought Jamie. I love the idea of eating healthy instead of diet. But I was thinking that detox can help to kick start a new weight loss plan and get rid of unhealthy eating. Thanks for the visit.

  3. For me, I make a lot of excuses and then my brother comes around with some diet plan and gets me to follow...and it works. Diet buddies DEFINITELY help. I've cut out wheat and sugar from my diet since January 1. Im following the Wheat Belly Diet, which heaps on a whole bunch of other limitations. I cannot believe I stuck with this diet plan for nearly 2 months...with NO setbacks. You just don't know how many food products contain wheat...it's a pain to adjust.

    While on the diet, I've been cooking more than I ever had before and I'm really enjoying the taste of food. The cravings faded quickly into the background.

    My hardest obstacles to overcome is going out to eat, ignoring extreme food sales of my favorite things, and traveling. It's really hard to find things to eat when you can't cook for yourself in a hotel. Anyways, my birthday is next week and I've decided to allow myself a 3-day weekend of eating whatever I want. At first, I was going to stick to the diet throughout my birthday, but it was causing me anxiety...the pressure to stay on became too much. I told myself last week that I was going to give myself a break. Then...after the birthday..I will continue until I reach my target weight.

    Anyhow, stay strong and give whatever diet or fitness plan you have a chance to work its magic. Everything takes time getting used to.

    I'm stopping by from Create with Joy's Friendship Friday Linky. Have a great weekend!

    I'm now following you on Google +


    1. This is the first time I heard about Wheat Belly Diet. Will find Mr.Google to learn more :) Thanks for sharing your thought. I agree, it takes time to get used to new routine. Bad habit is hard to break. Thanks for the follow too.

  4. I love number 6, moderation is key to weight loss.
    Thanks for sharing, have a super blessed day!

    1. yup! Eating a slice of pizza won't make you gain 10 pounds in one night, right. Thanks for stopping by Ugochi :)
