Did you know there's something more powerful than metabolism?
It's called the will--intellectual will to be precise. A lot of things in life really depends on what the mind wills. I've read books and articles about how some doctors gave placebo pills to their patients just to help them develop a mental will to get well. I've also read stuffs about how some patients who got worse even if they had a good chance of recovering and were taking the best medicines, just because they'd lost the will to live.
In fact, some who are healthy feel terribly sick because that's what their intellectual will makes them feel.
Often, it's all in the mind. And weight loss is often like that.
What good would healthy diets and workouts do you if deep inside you believe you'd always be fat? That you were designed to gain weight? That nothing you do would work?
I'm not saying weight loss is just a matter of thinking minus all physical efforts. You have to come up with a healthy balance of healthy diet, workout, rest, fun, supplements, and a conducive intellectual will. Be a well rounded individual. On top of everything, stay happy.
There will always be negative thoughts roaming around in your mind. An unconscious will to fail. It's normal, we all have that. But the thing is to brush it aside and fill your thoughts with the correct mental will.
I'm telling you, there is nothing impossible in life--if you just believe it--especially if you do things with God. I love the ad phrase--Impossible is Nothing.
Whether trying to lose weight or getting rid of an ailment--try positive thinking or better yet, a positive mental will. Fill in the blank: "I will _______ with God's grace!"
I'm not saying it will always work. I'm saying, it's always worth doing. So what if it doesn't work? At least, it will make things easier. But I'm telling you, it can work! You can make it happen--with God!
