If you are like me, you may be desperate to regain your lost self confidence back by losing unwelcome fat from your body. You may be fed up of not being able to lose even an ounce of excess weight, no matter what you have been doing up to now.
You are eagerly waiting the day when you could walk up to your loved ones with a lean body, oozing with confidence and self esteem. But you may be lost and not knowing what to do in order to achieve your weight loss goal.
Even though Weight loss is not easy, it is not impossible, if you stick to a plan and continue with it until you see some change. We, human beings are naturally fearful of change. This is a major reason why most of us can’t lose weight fast. Our unconscious has some unknown reason to hold on to our present weight and not let it go. It can be fear of change or some other fear that most of us aren’t aware consciously. Whatever the reason is, it has a great influence on our efforts in losing weight fast. If we did not have any unconscious fear of losing weight, then all of us would naturally lose weight fast as it is our natural state of being.
For instance, have you seen over weight dogs? or cats? If by any chance it is very rare. A lean body is our natural state of being like all other animals. But since we have been driven away from nature and living an artificial life we have all this social problems which most of other animals don’t have.
So any move to lose weight fast has to begin with the correct mind set. You should believe that you can lose excess weight fast and should develop a positive mind set towards your goal.
