It is possible to train your brain to lose weight. If you can do that, your weight loss and fat loss journey will be much easier.

Get rid of the scale obsession

If you're trying to lose weight, the scale is not the only measurement option that you have. Many people become obsessed with the scale, the number that you see on it. For many people the number can decide whether they will have a great day or a complete breakdown. However, this obsession can result in disastrous situation. Instead of checking your weight each and every day, you can check your weight on a weekly or monthly basis. The scale may not be a reflection of your true progress and hard work. That is why if you trust only the scale, it can be difficult to continue doing the good things that you are doing for weight loss and it can also be difficult to keep up the progress.

Change your beliefs

If you are overweight or if you have loss of fat in your body, this has happen because of your behaviour. And your behaviour is controlled by your beliefs. If you want to change this condition, you will have to change your beliefs. Without changing the beliefs, it'll be difficult for you to accept new behaviours which are necessary for losing extra weight and fat from your body. Specially, the beliefs about food will decide about your success in losing weight. Such beliefs may come from your parents or your friends or your environment. If there have seen someone from your family groan about being on a diet, thinking of dieting or following a specific diet can be difficult for you. If you have friends who think that they should go to the gym, that may help you to easily accept that you should regularly exercise. All such beliefs will play big roles in deciding whether you'll be able to lose the extra weight and fat or not.

Reward yourself

You should reward yourself for your efforts and the progress you make towards losing body fat and weight. Even a small reward can help you to feel more motivated and keep working harder to achieve better results.

If you have done something good that can help you to make some progress towards your goal of losing weight, you should remember your accomplishments and reward yourself. If you ate clean all day that is a very good thing for you when you're trying to lose weight. You deserve a reward for that. Once you reward yourself that will help you to do the same the next day and the following days.

Focus on your feelings

When you're trying to lose weight, you should focus more on your feelings instead of your physical appearance. You'll be able to feel what is happening with your body. Sometimes, physical appearance may take time to show up. If you can feel that positive changes are happening in your body, then it will help you to feel motivated even though the physical appearance is not changing much. Keep pushing yourself to achieve your goal of losing extra weight and fat will need lots of motivation because it is hard work. By focusing on your feelings, you'll be able to keep doing what is working day after day and that will help you to create some good habits which will help you to lose extra body fat and weight.
