See yourself thin

If you're overweight, there's a very good chance that you have a low metabolism!.
Having a slow metabolism means that you can eat 'only a little food' and still gain more weight than your friend who eats far more than you every day of his or her life.

Your metabolism is basically a bunch of organs and glands that are responsible for regulating how your body burns food for fuel and how it converts that food into energy. These include the thyroid, pancreas, stomach, small and large intestines, and the colon.

When you have a slow metabolism there's a good chance that one of more of these systems is out of balance or just plain not working properly (and that's almost always due to improper living, disease, drugs, or a severe accident). You need to make sure that these organ and glands are working properly, especially if you are having a difficult time losing weight.

But there's more causes for being overweight other than having a slow metabolism. You see, overweight people tend to eat when they're not hungry, they tend to have a larger appetite, they tend to eat "diet foods" more often, they tend to eat before they go to bed, and worst of all they tend to see themselves as being overweight.

Now you can clean up almost all of this mess by living a healthy lifestyle.
But the underlying problem that can never be cleared up simply with your actions, is the way you see yourself when you close your eyes.

Overweight people constantly think about their weight in a negative way, thus creating the undesired effect of not being able to lose weight. It's true that you become what you think about, and if you constantly see yourself as being fat, you'll never be thin!

Here's a tip...for the next 30 days (it takes 28 - 30 days to change how you subconsciously think of yourself) cut out a photo of how you want to look and paste your head on it. Or use an old photo of yourself at a weight you desire to achieve, providing you do have one.
Look at this photo as often as you can during the day for the next 30 days. Paste one on your bathroom mirror, one on your refrigerator, one in your car, one at work, even one in your wallet. This is the easiest way to “see’ you thinner. And until you can see yourself as having achieved the desired results, you will have a very difficult time to do so.
Change your lifestyle but also change your thoughts.
Be smart, stay healthy
