Losing weight is as much about attitude and will power as it is about reducing the amount you eat and the time you spend exercising. Not having a positive mental attitude towards your weight loss goals is going to be a blocker. These are the mindset shifts you need to make to lose weight successfully.
1. Don’t Blame Your Genes
One of the best things you can do to change your mindset to lose weight is stop using the old cliché of blaming it on your genes. We hate to break it to you, but there really isn’t such a thing as being big boned, and if several members of your close family are on the heavy side too, then it is more likely an indicator of bad dietary habits. Without the excuse of ‘fat genes’, you can start to work towards real weight loss.
