Hope is a necessary ingredient when meeting and succeeding at the challenge of weight loss.

High enough levels of hope can combat bad feelings, disappointment, and discouragement. If you bring a high level of hope to the weight loss challenge, you often will choose both small and large goals that are more difficult than if you had less hope. Interestingly, you will not perceive these weight loss goals as more difficult because of the fact that you have so much hope.

Hope is not something that you either have or don't have. There are degrees of hope. You can increase your hopefulness by thinking of your weight loss goals as weight loss challenges.

Hope, as an enduring personal subjective state of mind, itself will cause you to see your goals as challenges that you can meet and succeed at. Your focus will be on success rather than failure. With such a positive mindset you have a higher probability to achieve your weight loss goal. The probability is higher because being hopeful puts you in the right frame of mind to develop workable ways to reach your goal.

You can increase your hope. For more, go to and enter the word "hope" in search.
