Have You Hit “A Plateau”?

By jeff 0

There are few things more frustrating than not being able to lose
weight.

You want to be slimmer and to tone your body, but your weight
won’t budge.

Read the following 7 Weight Loss Blockers to discover what is
standing in your way and how to quickly and easily begin your
weight loss journey.

Blocker #1: Your Mind

Your mind is your number one ally when it comes to achieving your
goals. However, until your mind has been programmed for success, it
will do more to derail your efforts than to help you. Take a few
moments each day to visualize yourself at your ideal weight.
Imagine how it feels to look the way you’ve always
wanted. Protect your mind from any negative self talk. If a negative
thought comes to mind, immediately reject it. You want to be thin
and fit, and yet you think of yourself as out-of-shape and fat.
Re-program your mind to think of yourself as fit and attractive,
and you will be well on your way toward achieving your goal. Give up
the belief that you can’t achieve the body you’ve always
dreamed of. See it first in your mind, and then in the
mirror.

Blocker #2: Your Fear

Change makes most of us nervous – even if it is a change in the
right direction. You may not be consciously aware of the fear you
have of getting into shape. Until you conquer this fear, your
weight loss efforts will be blocked by self sabotage.

Professional speaker and author, Anthony Robbins, has outlined
three specific beliefs that you must have in order to conquer your
fear and instantly create a lasting change. Believe that something
MUST change. You can’t be wishy-washy about it. You can’t
be considering it. You can’t even be pretty sure about it.
You’ve got to be rock solid. Believe that YOU must change it.
You can’t pass the buck of responsibility and expect to lose
weight. It’s on your shoulders. Other people will prove to be
great assets in your journey, but in the end you are the one who is
going to make it happen. You have to want this weight loss enough
to make it your personal mission.Believe you CAN change it. You may
have failed in the past, but that doesn’t matter. When you put
your mind to it, you’re able to do amazing things. Do you
believe that you are capable of losing weight? Once you own the
belief that you can, you’ll be unstoppable.

Blocker #3: Your Excuses

Your excuses for being out-of-shape are getting old. An excuse
takes less immediate effort than an action, but in the long run the
action taker always has the advantage. Don’t allow excuses to
ruin your life any longer. Don’t skip out on your
responsibilities with excuses, instead expect more from
yourself. Focus on the big reason why you are losing the weight.
Make a list of the benefits you’ll enjoy once you achieve your
goal, and read them first thing each morning. Remember that you can
only have two things in life: excuses or results. Which do you
want?

Blocker #4: Your Commitment

How many times have you tried to lose weight, only to give up a
week or two later? We live in a commitment-phobic world, so
it’s no wonder that you routinely abandon your goals. If you
truly want to lose weight then your commitment to the process is a
must. The margin between success and failure is bridged by your
commitment. Don’t give up until your goal has been
achieved. Treat exercise with the same importance as a work meeting,
and you’ll never skip it at the last minute. Find three
available 60-minute time slots in your schedule and mark them (in
pen) on your calendar. Now stick to your schedule. If you don’t
give up, then you’ll never fail.

Blocker #5: Your Diet

If you consistently eat the wrong food, then you’re weight loss
efforts will all be in vain. To put it bluntly, you need to stop
eating junk. Processed foods, refined sugar and high fructose corn
syrup do not belong in your diet if you want to be in great shape.
Cut these items out of your diet and replace them with real whole
foods like lean meats, vegetables, whole grains, nuts and
fruits. Don’t eat processed foods. Even though processed foods
are accepted by our society, they contain tons of chemicals and
empty calories that will make you sick and fat. Fat contains twice
the caloric density of protein and carbohydrates, so make sure to
limit the amount that you consume. Eat lots of lean proteins and
wholesome carbohydrates from plants and whole grains. Vegetables,
whole grains, fruits, nuts and seeds are filled with fiber and
antioxidants which are vital for healthy weight loss. Snack on
these instead of packaged treats.

Blocker #6: Your Patience

It takes time to transform your body from fat to fit, even though
you want it to happen overnight. Remind yourself that it took time
to put the weight on, so it will take time to take the weight off.
When you find your patience wavering, or when you encounter a
frustrating plateau, do the following:Review your goal. Is it
specific and measurable? Is it small and attainable, rather than
monumental? Focus on your goal when the going gets tough. Make each
workout a new experience. Challenge your body with different
resistance, new exercises and a varied pace. Remember that anyone
can have one great workout, but that won’t get you the body you
want. The only way to achieve your goal is by consistently
exercising and eating right, plain and simple.

Blocker #7: Your Support

People who exercise alone are less challenged, less accountable and
are more likely to fail. It makes sense. Who would rush to the gym
if no one is was waiting for them? Who would push themselves if no
one was paying attention? Exercising alone is a recipe for
disaster.Find a workout partner who is in better shape than you, or
better yet, work with me, your local fitness expert, to guarantee
your results. I am passionate about seeing you achieve results –
don’t waste your time, energy and effort on mistakes. When you
start a program with me, you suddenly have the upper hand on weight
loss. I’ll be in your corner, coaching you each step of the
way, keeping you accountable to workouts and giving you that dose
