The weight-loss process is filled with instances of overcoming resistance to change. Changing yourself is the key to the “I cannot lose weight” dilemma.
Being mindful, being accepting, and being hopeful constitute a powerful template for personal changes. They maximize your potential for being automatic rather than needing a lot of for self-control.
Being mindful is being self-aware.
Being accepting builds on this rise in self-awareness and adds a layer of tolerance for what you find out about yourself when you self-reflect.
Being hopeful takes what being mindful and accepting have taught and makes this learning available in the form of actions to take.
Automaticity grows quickly from the comparatively low level of mental activity that being mindful, accepting, and hopeful require.
This is especially true when you enter into this tripartite process where you are easily able to enter (when you keep selecting a personally comfortable place to start and to continue).
Your comfort is what determines the feel of what you’re going through and how much mental energy you’ll expend. The less mental energy you expend, the more automatic is the experience.
