When you meet one of your mini-milestones on natural and healthy weight loss, give yourself a reward! Your rewards should be varied and unique to you.
Many aspects of dieting and natural weight loss are difficult such as:
o withstanding cravings,
o making food plans,
o resisting emotional eating,
o turning down food pushers, etc.
The more dieters do these things, the easier they become. This can only happen if you are able to give yourself credit or a positive reward.
For example, every time you resist a craving and praise yourself, you build up your confidence that you're capable of resisting cravings. This will increase the likelihood that you'll be able withstand the next craving that you encounter. This leads to natural weight loss which is easy and without any side effects.
If you can withstand a craving but do not credit yourself for it, then the next time you have a craving you won't be sure you'll be able to hold out and may struggle a lot more.
You need to give yourself credit for every positive diet and exercise-related behaviors you do in your natural weight loss project. For instance, you should reward yourself for the following:
o every time they stop eating before they're overfull,
o get back on track after straying,
o eat slowly and mindfully (Day 5),
o do any kind of exercise,
You need to say, "Great," or "Good, I did it!" Many people who have struggled with their weight are hard on themselves and overly self-critical.
By consciously recognizing the dozens of things you do right each day, you build up your self-confidence and awareness that you're strong and in control. You will also notice that the things you consistently give yourself credit for (such as eating sitting down) become easier and easier to do.
This is no coincidence!
