Weight loss motivation, How are you doing? Need some help?

Fashionable “Fad diets” come and go, and there are always new exercise routines to try. The bottom line is that if you stick to simple fat loss fundamentals then your weight won’t be a problem. The main purpose of Fat Loss Mentality is to guide you through the Psychological factors of breaking bad habits, and realizing that your thoughts contain self-limiting beliefs, falsehoods, and self-rationalization. These mental constraints are the biggest make-or-break factor in your weight loss motivation.


Weight loss motivation is given a boost by reaching a “tipping point”.

I believe that at some point in the future, hopefully soon, you will reach a tipping point where suddenly everything gets easier. Where previous challenges in your life seem to “fall into place” and you get to the stage where you wonder why it took you so many years to lose the weight. I hope that you stay with me during your journey. I know that the journey is mostly a personal one, but I believe that:


“When the student is ready, the teacher will appear” – The Buddha.

I like the irony of getting weight loss motivation from the wisdom of the Buddha!


Have you ever noticed that many weight loss, fat loss, nutrition or diet experts are overweight? Whilst my general fat loss philosophy is to never listen to any advice from someone who can’t practice what they preach, I will give the Buddha a pass, as he was not giving weight loss advice…

In fact I like the irony of the Buddha being obese. Whether the original Buddha was obese or not, I do not know, but I know that he had a lot of wisdom to share with the world, as did many philosophers or spiritual guides throughout history. So to me, Buddhas words can be motivational, and his figure can be a cautionary motivator…

Fortunately, in the internet age, we can expand on this. When the student is ready, many, many teachers can appear, or easily be found. When you reach the tipping point of self-realization, you will be drawn to the correct information. Coincidences and serendipity will be the universes way of showing you that you are on the right path.


Hit the weight loss motivational tipping point, and continue to build on it.

Your progress will gradually build in momentum. After you break the chains of inertia and negative thinking, you will start to believe that this time, you can do it. Not just in getting down to a more acceptable weight, but getting down to your ideal weight. Regardless of how old you are, you have the rest of your life to strive for personal perfection. To clarify my thinking on this, I believe that whilst perfection is impossible, to strive for it is glorious.

Whatever you do for a living, no matter who your family and friends are, everything will be enhanced by the extra energy, positivity and vitality in your new self. Your digestive system will be working efficiently, your liver, kidneys, heart and so on will not be under excessive energy-sapping strain.

You know what? The fact that you are reading this means that you have not given up, your spirit screams to be released, and it can happen… You cannot change the past, but you can stay on the right fat loss path. To assist you, let me remind you of something that you probably already know…

Less junk food, more healthy foodYou already know WHAT to do, now do it…

That’s it, the best things in life are free, and the best lessons are the simple ones.

Thanks for reading and I hope you hit your “weight loss motivation tipping point” in the near future!

    Great article! I love the idea of building on your motivation, and rolling it forward! They say it takes only 30 days to start building positive habits. If you hit that marker, and only keep building, you’ll have a GREAT base to build from! I can start with 30 days – can’t you?

      I have also heard about the 30 day estimate on forming a new habit. That is a whole lot easier than thinking about complete change. 30 days, taken 1 at a time!

    Great tips. I am working with a mom who is having trouble with her motivation. I will show her your article.

    LOVE this statement: “Your progress will gradually build in momentum. After you break the chains of inertia and negative thinking, you will start to believe that this time, you can do it.” This is very true and I wish more would press in and past the discomfort and challenge and reach this point….as always a brilliant article!

    Several great points, when I started almost 2 years ago I had to go drastic to change habits right away. I needed an “intervention”. Now it’s a lifestyle change, it’s still a daily choice and still something I struggle with but it’s easier to say no to food that I would have said yes to in the past.

      It is certainly a process. Some days we will feel like we aren’t making any progress, but on others we see how far we have come.
