Lazy Weight Loss Tips #3

Now, if the first two were pretty useful to you, here is the third of my great lazy weight loss tips to complete the set:

Think Yourself Thin!

Yes, you can actually do that when you set your mind into the right way of thinking and then you really can think yourself thin!

The article that link above links to is a particularly good one and I don’t think its worth repeating the same stuff here, as I wrote it anyway! Its in another very special and very informative weight loss tips blog and you can read all about how to think yourself thin in that article!

But that would leave us without much to read here, so I’m going to give you some pointers on how to think yourself thin and lose weight by using the power of your mind to boost your motivation to succeed.

For starter, you should use visualization techniques which is really just a complicated way of saying to use your imagination to see yourself as the thin person that you want to be. Do this often and really get into it, so that you not only imagine what you’d look like as a thin person, but play a game with it and imagine dressing yourself in thin clothes. Imagine how you would put on each item of clothing and imagine you can feel the material touching your skin as you put on the garment.

Then imagine walking around in these thin clothes and imagine how light you feel as you walk around in them, taking light steps and feeling light and energetic. Imagine running around like a happy child and imagine you have so much energy to do that.

All this is just so great to do because its all in your imagination, so it can’t do you any harm whatsoever. The great thing is that the more you run through this simple visualization exercise, the better at it you’ll be until you get to the stage where you really can feel every item of clothing brisging against your skin as you put it on. And you really feel yourself running around with all that childhood energy!

And that’s about how its done. You’ll be amazed at how your weight starts to go down just by doing this every day for several minutes!

Lazy Weight Loss Tips #2

I wanted to bring you a set of short articles that provide some useful and actionable tips, ideas and techniques to help you shed some of those excess pounds from around your waist or thighs using really simple things that anyone can do if they put their mind to it and really mean to make things happen in their lives. Here is the second of my incredibly good weight loss tips:

Turn off the TV!

Yep, if you have the television turned on then it is a magnet for your attention and saps all the motivation out of you. Don’t believe me? Try it!

Walk into a room with a television on and maybe a good program that you like to watch… OK that’s cheating a little but its the truth of the matter. How hard is it to stop your self sitting down in a chair and watching it “just for 5 minutes to see if its any good…” too late!

Without that major distraction in any room in your house you stand a much better chance of

  • Not sitting down
  • Not eating (watching a TV ad for snacks is fatal)
  • Starting any exercise routine you like
  • Feeling motivated to lose weight

…then you have a much better chance of achieving your goal. TV saps your mind and spirit because it sucks you in to its clever programming and makes you want to watch it! Yes it does!

Why do you think that is? Advertisements!

Advertisements are what pay for those television programs and the advertising people do it because they know it will attract potentially millions of people to watch the show, into which are interlaced their ads in commercial breaks and also within the programs themselves (even though they like to deny that).

It makes the manufacturers of the products that are advertised in that way millions of dollars, which is why television is there. No other reason, no matter what anyone tells you. It’s not for entertainment, it’s so advertisers can sell you stuff!

Once you get your head around that concept, you’ll start to see the TV for what it is. A vehicle for pumping ads into your brain while you are the most susceptible. Which is during a show that you enjoy or something that is entertaining enough to keep you hooked to staring at the TV set. I bet most of the time, you don’t even realize when the show stops and the advertisements start!

So do yourself a favor in future if you are really serious about losing weight.

Turn of the darn TV!
