Keeping a balanced mental LumaSlim perspective is a key factor in continuing to achieve progress in your weight loss program. From my own experience, I know that maintaining the right balance is, well, something of a balancing act.If I am too relaxed about my weight loss goals, I find that it is very easy to drift back into non-productive habits like eating desserts too often, or taking multiple helpings of a really tasty dish when one will really do. Then I will inevitably notice that my weight is slowly creeping back up instead of slowly going down.The opposite unbalanced extreme is when I start obsessing about losing weight quickly. If I get in too big a hurry, I will force myself to eat way too little to avoid hunger, and then I will not be able to think about anything except how hungry I am. This is clearly self-defeating, because the unavoidable result will be a moment when I snap and say "enough, already, I am just going to eat anything I want. It is not worth being hungry all the time . . ."The ideal state is somewhere in the middle. Stay aware of your goals without obsessing about them. Eat slowly and enjoy your food and consciously decide you don't need a second or third serving. Allow yourself an occasional treat, but don't let dessert every evening become a habit. Choose nutritious foods and avoid un-healthful things like sweetened (artificially or otherwise) soft drinks.And don't forget exercise. Find something you really enjoy doing and then do it frequently, but not to excess. The benefits of a reasonable exercise program extend far beyond simple weight loss.Remember, you took many years to gain the weight you now want to lose. With a careful, balanced approach, you can lose it back again. Whether you want to avoid "middle-age spread" or you never lost the weight you gained from your last pregnancy, you can lose weight effectively. Keeping the right mental attitude is a must. Just don't get in too big a hurry!There are many reasons why you may want to lose water weight. Sometimes it is because there are clothes you are trying to fit into for a special occasion.
