Beware! The weight-loss
process is filled with “if only”.
“If only I would have
__________, I could have _______________.”
Now you might look at the “if
only” as an excuse. But look closer, please. The “if only” might well be your
way to imagine how things could have gone beyond what actually occurred.
Reflecting on what might
have been is a good way of using psychology to lose weight. The “if only” gets
weight-loss psychology going. With the “if only” you are making a mental
simulation of a better reality, and you can use this mental simulation to
improve future outcomes.
So next time you come up
with “If only I would have __________” don’t just see it as an excuse. See the “if
only” as your way of securing a brighter future with more successful
weight-loss for yourself.
