3 Powerful Weight Loss Tips
- by Tony Mase

Every January 1st, millions upon millions of people worldwide set out on their annual quest to try to shed their excess pounds.

Unfortunately, by now, the overwhelming majority of these well-intentioned folks will have already failed and uttered those immortal words...

"Oh well, I guess I'll try again next year."

Don't let that be you!

Here are three powerful tips that'll help you lose the weight you want to lose once and for all:

Powerful Weight Loss Tip #1 - Stop "trying" to lose weight.

The word "try" is, in my opinion, the single biggest "weasel word" in the entire English language.

Why do I call it a "weasel word", you ask?

Simple...

The word "try", by its very definition, comes with a built- in "escape hatch".

If you say you'll "try" to do something and you don't, you can always use your "escape hatch" and "weasel" out of it by saying...

"Well, I tried!"

Here's the deal...

You either will do something or you won't do something...

You either do something or you don't do something...

There's no such thing as "trying" to do something!

Think about it...

"Try" to read this article.

You can't, can you?

You either will read this article or you won't read this article...

You either do read this article or you don't read this article...

You can't "try" to read this article.

Nor...

Can you "try" to lose weight.

You either will lose weight or you won't lose weight...

You either do lose weight or you don't lose weight...

It's that simple!

Powerful Weight Loss Tip #2 - Focus on what you want, not on what you don't want.

In the book for which he's best known, his classic masterpiece "The Science of Getting Rich", Wallace D. Wattles wrote:

"The Creative Power within us makes us into the image of that to which we give our attention."

Most people who set out to lose weight start out by saying something like...

"I want to lose 50 pounds."

Question for you...

If you make a statement to yourself like...

"I want to lose 50 pounds"...

What are you giving your attention to?

Those excess 50 pounds, right?

Right.

Therefore...

Since that's what you're giving your attention to...

Guess what?

You got it...

That's *exactly* what you'll have...

Those excess 50 pounds!

In other words...

By making a statement like...

"I want to lose 50 pounds"...

You're subconsciously setting yourself up for failure before you even begin.

So...

What should you do instead?

Simple...

In his book "The Personal Power Course", Wallace D. Wattles wrote:

"... whenever you think of your physical self... think of the IDEAL BODY WHICH YOU ARE BUILDING, and not of the body which now is."

And...

Therein lies the secret to successfully losing weight.

If you weigh 200 pounds and you want to weigh 150 pounds...

Rather than say...

"I want to lose 50 pounds"...

Say...

"I want to weigh 150 pounds"...

Or...

Better...

"I weigh 150 pounds."

Or...

Even better...

Take "weight" out of the picture altogether and simply...

Form a clear and definite mental image of "the ideal body which you are building" and hold that image in your thoughts "whenever you think of your physical self".

Think about it...

If you looked and felt *exactly* as you wanted to look and feel, would you really care what you weighed?

I think not. :-)

Powerful Weight Loss Tip #3 - Stay away from mirrors, scales, and tape measures.

Most people who begin a weight loss program, regardless of what it is, seem to have this overwhelming need to look in the mirror, hop on the scale, or check their measurements every five minutes to see if their weight loss program is working.

Now...

"Every five minutes" may be a bit of an exaggeration, but for some it's not too far from the truth. :-)

Here's a question for you to ponder...

If you look in the mirror, hop on the scale, or check your measurements anytime before you have the ideal body you want, are you thinking of "the ideal body which you are building" or of "the body which now is"?

Think about it.

Remember...

"The Creative Power within us makes us into the image of that to which we give our attention."

So...

If you *really* want to shed your excess pounds this New Year once and for all...

Here's my best advice:

1. Take "weight" out of the picture altogether and decide *exactly* how you want to look and feel.

2. Form a clear and definite mental image of "the ideal body which you are building" and hold that image in your thoughts "whenever you think of your physical self".

3. Stay away from mirrors, scales, and tape measures.

With that...

I wish you and your loved ones a wealthy, healthy, successful, and happy New Year!
