Limiting Mindset #6
“I have too much to lose”
This is perhaps THE biggest LIMITING THOUGHT that prevents significant weight loss. This thought process is almost as bad as saying something like “I’m just a lost cause” …. “I’m too far gone … “It’s hopeless”. Well, we are here to tell you: It is NOT hopeless!
We’ve all heard the proverbial question:
How do you eat an elephant?
The answer is one bite at time.
Those BIG seemingly impossible accomplishments simply have to be chunked down. Get a little victory here … and another one there. Allow those little battles won to eventually allow you to win the war. Think about it however you want in order to get your head around the fact that IS possible ….
But the WRONG thing to do is toss in the towel!
Let’s think about this one a bit more: Why does this situation even happen in the first place??? It comes back to that 1st limiting thought we touched on: Remember?
TOLERATIONS …. That progressive build up; bit by bit; year after year. It happens over time.
Well, if it came ON over time, why would we expect anything different as it comes OFF? If this is YOUR limiting thought when it comes to your weight loss, you have to learn to chunk your goals down.
Getting them down to small more digestible wins … and even more manageable action steps. Start with a goal that IS achievable. Do a few key action steps on a consistent basis. See how that would work. See how it affects a few measures. If your BMI is 35, get it under 30 … still overweight but not in the obese category. If it’s 45 get it under 40, then to 35.
As you do this, your desire will move from a hope or a wish (that seems TOO big) to an expectation and a belief because it WILL become evident that this is do-able. And it IS do-able … bite by bite of that elephant. Step by step. Moving in the RIGHT direction – not the wrong one!
Never fall into the limiting belief that it’s too late or there’s TOO much. And remember the ol’ saying … “Inch by inch life is a cinch”.
And so it is with weight loss! Call, click or just come in sometime soon and let’s make that statement a reality in YOUR life!
