The Secret to Weight Loss: Stop Trying to “Lose” Weight

One of the biggest mistakes people make when trying to lose weight is . . . trying to “lose” it.

The truth is that you will never lose weight as long as you’re trying to get rid of it. It sounds absurd, but how you think about the excess weight matters. (A lot.)

Thinking of the weight as something horrible, disgusting, gross, and unwanted creates resistance in your body – the one you’re trying to change.

Anything you resist will never change. It will stay the same or, worse, amplify.

It’s like arguing with someone. The more you fight, the louder they get. But as soon as you say “I understand where you’re coming from,” the fight fades away.

So what you need is a mindset shift. It’s time to reframe the weight.

But we’re not going to talk platitudes and clichés.

There will be no “embrace the body you’re in” or “make peace with your body” – even though those things are true.

In this week’s video, you’re going to get 5 practical steps to change how you see the weight.

You’ll learn how to reject the cultural lies you’ve been told about weight loss. And you’ll also learn how doing things like sucking it in and trying to fit into too-tight clothes may be what’s keeping the weight where it is.

Make sure to watch the video because these practical steps will help you allow the excess weight to shed itself.

And the best news? The body you envision is already yours – it’s just buried underneath a layer of stuff you don’t need.
