6 Powerful Tools to Start and Achieve Your Weight Loss Goals

Six effective weight loss tools to help you achieve

Pulling the plug and finally deciding to begin your weight loss journey may seem difficult and overwhelming. Knowing how hard change can be, I have outlined six powerful tools you can use to help you get started and successfully achieve your weight loss goals.


1. Start NOW

Procrastination is a very common practice among the general population.

The fact of the matter is that there will always be initial resistance to change – it is our biological wiring to stay in a comfortable and safe environment for survival.

There will never be a perfect circumstance or a better time to start your weight loss journey than now.

When you schedule something and decide not to honor your commitment by repeatedly skipping it, that action communicates to your subconscious mind that the ideas you plan for yourself will not happen.

Every time you decide to put it off, it makes it increasingly more difficult to start it because you are now wiring neural pathways in your brain leading you to automatic procrastination, resistance and fear.

Even though it is difficult to take that first step, it will be that much harder down the line. Everyone who has achieved anything worthwhile had a humble beginning.

Start today, start now.


2. Start slow and allow yourself the necessary time

If change were easy, every individual walking this earth would be being, doing and having exactly what they wanted.

Give yourself the necessary time to adjust to the new weight loss journey that you’ve decided to begin. 

Slow and steady will win the race.

Depending on your specific goals and the amount of body fat you’d like to lose – either on your own or with a knowledgeable coach – create a realistic plan highlighting an effective course of action and the necessary time it will take to successfully achieve it.

Many people have lost a large amount of weight only to gain it back and some just as quickly. This is due to two main reason – unsustainable nutrition program and poor mindset. Don’t be that person.

Give your body the necessary time and attention that it needs to make the change in a healthy and sustainable manner, so that you handle this part of your life once and for all.


3. Don’t compare yourself to others

Don’t compare yourself to others – that’s a battle you can never win.” – Michelle Persons

Nothing creates more insecurity, fear and doubt than comparing yourself to others.

Everyone has their own unique path and whatever your assumption or perception is of someone else’s great awesome and perfectly successful life is most often terribly wrong.

Save yourself the time, energy and unnecessary pain.

Preserve your energy and utilize it to lead you a step closer to your weight loss goal. Your journey is unique to you and you must stay on your path if you want to succeed and evolve into the next best version of yourself.

Don’t give your power away. Be you.


4. Practice Mindfulness

Self-awareness is the first gateway to evolving into the best version of yourself.

Without self-awareness, we are unable to even acknowledge the thoughts and behaviors that are limiting us from being who we truly are.

Practice mindfulness. Be conscious of what is going on in your body (behavior) and mind (thoughts) along your weight loss journey.

Whenever you have a strong push towards cheating on your diet or wanting to skip the gym that day, practicing mindfulness will make you aware of the fact that it’s simply your old habits and thought patterns trying to be put on the spotlight again.

This type of self-awareness will give you the strength to move forward with your commitment and allow zero energy to the old you.


5. Set small goals along the way

Dozen of small wins will help you achieve the big win.

Human beings require validation to acknowledge that they are on the right path doing the right thing.

Setting up small daily or weekly goals and achieving them will not only keep you encouraged and motivated but also make the finish line seem closer and less overwhelming.

All successful people have a big goal in mind, while focusing all their energy on the present moment and the actions they can take today to get them there.

Enjoy and celebrate the small successes, patiently knowing that your big goal is just around the corner.


6. Surround yourself with positivity

The journey may sometimes seem tough and overwhelming.

Surrounding yourself with positive people that are supportive of your goals will be an incredibly powerful factor in helping you overcome those difficult times and stay the course.

Napoleon Hill suggest that every successful person must create or be part of a mastermind group.

Be it a workout buddy, family, friends or a knowledgeable personal trainer, having a support system can play a huge role in successfully achieving your fat loss goal.


Finally, any method, technique or tool is powerless without application. Let your mind stir in these ideas and apply it in your own journey to start and successfully achieve your weight loss goals.
