If you've paid attention at all to how you feel when dieting I would guess you've made some discoveries. For instance it's probably safe to say that during an eating binge or falling off your diet there was probably something that triggered it.
You may have been feeling nervous, excited, down, almost any number of emotions can trigger failing to stay on your diet.
In this article I'm going to reveal a tip that can keep you on track so you don't go off your diet.
A lot of times we are not aware we are going off our diet until we are in the process of doing it and by then you may feel that you will feel better if you just have a little of this and that.
You know a little bite of this and I will feel good. Of course after you eat what you didn't want to eat or eat too much of it you may start feeling bad again, especially about your lack of will power.
Then you’re in a vicious cycle.
You don't have to beat yourself up, just nip it in the bud.
Whenever you get a minute to yourself, think about someone that you know that's always giving you support. They always see the better part of you. And if you're having trouble doing this then think of someone that is always positive and they see the good in everything.
And if you're still having trouble doing this then make up a fictional person whom you would imagine have these qualities. I would guess though if you really think about it, you will come up with someone in the first example that you already know.
Now in your mind's eye or wonderful imagination, imagine this person is looking at you and commenting on how wonderful you are and pointing out your positive qualities.
What you're going to do is walk up behind this person and slowly become them looking at you. Transform yourself into the other person looking at you. Now as you look at yourself, you continue to see the positive aspects of yourself and holding a positive attitude.
Try this now, even for a second and you will notice you feel a bit different than before you did it. Like anything else the more you do it the more positive effects you will have and feel and before long you will notice that your emotions stay on the positive side.
The benefits of your emotions on the positive side means you will be more level headed and less likely to be swayed by negative emotions. Especially the type that derails your diet plan.
There are other twists on this method but they all lead to the same place. Feeling better about yourself if the key to any diet and when you have small successes they begin to add up and before long. You achieve you ideal weight...
There's no time like now...
