Believing in Yourself Critical to Weight loss Success on the Biggest Loser

One of the biggest weight loss challenges overweight people face is believing in themselves. This is at the core of my Refuse To Diet theory. We somehow have absorbed the message that we don't deserve to be slim and healthy...we aren't worthy of it.

This appeared even on the Biggest Loser Television show recently. When one of the other "contestants" was sent home, one of the remaining folks felt it was difficult to continue. He really struggled with feeling deserving of being there.

We can go on all sorts of diets and every exercise routine in the world...but if we do not believe we deserve the gift of health then we will not succeed. Not in the long-run. In order to achieve and maintain, permanent weight loss you must come to know in your heart that this is your birthright.

Diets don't work because they don't address these issues. They don't fail because we are isn't about is completely our mindset about our ability to lose weight and our deserving a healthy, slender body.

I loved how this beautiful "Loser" put it, he said that he realized he had always run from his feelings and it was time to start running towards...and through...them.

You probably don't have access to Bob or Jillian to help you face your emotional "issues" can get other help...and you can start working on improving your sense of worthiness right now, at home. Write down some positive affirmations about doesn't have to start with anything to do with your body...just about you as a human being. Now, practice saying those affirmations over and over all day long. Every time you feel negative, say the positive affirmation.

Before long, you will even begin to believe it...and that's when you know you are making progress...and that's when you will really start to see and feel the results!

I know that you deserve a healthy, energetic and slender body...and I know that you can achieve it! Go for it!
