If I weigh 184 lbs I think to myself that I weigh 182 lbs. I tell myself over and over (in my head) that I weigh 182 lbs until I actually do weigh 182 lbs. Then I tell myself I weigh 180 lbs. etc. You get the idea. Sounds strange, but it works for me.9
I've lost 50 lbs once, gained it back plus more, and then lost 75 lbs from January 2011-May 2011 and have been slightly losing since then. I have had the struggles that everyone experiences and the only way to have success is to have a positive attitude in combination with the mental strength to make decisions that are beneficial to your goals. Once you have success, whether its 5 lbs or 50 lbs, the positive emotions you endure should drive you to keep working hard to achieve what you deserve!
