I'm sure you'll agree that 'weight loss' is, on the surface, about your diet and exercise routine.
The fact is, your mental state is far more important: your degree of self-worth and determination will determine whether or not you can maintain that routine.
The three trainers on "The Biggest Loser" spend a lot of time talking to the participants about their mental states.
Participants are often challenged about how highly they value themselves.
The trainers push and push to reveal the excuses participants are making about why things are as they are or who else is to blame.
The trainers are constantly looking to help partipants break their limiting attitudinal and behavioural patterns and encourage them towards new decision making.
I actually think the number one priority when faced with any challenge (weight loss or otherwise) should be your self-worth.
Do you value yourself highly enough to even attempt this challenge?
Do you deserve success?
Once you feel congruent with questions like these, then those practical strategies, like diet and exercise plans, have a fighting chance of success.
What do you think?
Have you lost a great deal of weight and how important was your attitude to achieve that?
How important is your self-worth at work, certainly in terms of your decision making?
