Books That Set Me Up For Success On My Weight Loss Journey

Wednesday, Sep 6, 2023 | Coaches, Lifestyle

Hello Healthi friends, Coach Delicia here! Before I kicked off my Healthi adventure, I took some proactive steps that made a profound impact. I immersed myself in three enlightening books that helped me gear up for what lay ahead: “Start with Why” by Simon Sinek, “Switch on Your Brain” by Dr. Caroline Leaf, and “Mindset” by Carol Dweck. These books for success weren’t just casual picks; they were like my personal coaches, getting me mentally ready for the road ahead. Intrigued? Let’s dive in!


“Start with Why” by Simon Sinek: Finding My Reasons

Long before downloading the Healthi app, Sinek’s book got me thinking. He champions the idea of understanding the deeper motivations behind our actions. So, I asked myself, “Why am I embarking on this weight loss journey?” Instead of fixating solely on numbers, I tapped into my personal ‘whys’—like desiring more energy and feeling confident in my skin. Armed with the Healthi app, I didn’t just track Bites; I focused on what truly inspired me. It became my secret weapon, keeping me motivated.


“Switch on Your Brain” by Dr. Caroline Leaf: Harnessing Positivity

Dr. Leaf’s book delves into the power of our thoughts, and man, did that hit home. Positive thinking isn’t just a feel-good concept; it’s a strategy. With the Healthi app by my side, I started celebrating small victories. This subtle shift rewired my brain. Instead of fixating on just weight loss, I adopted a fresh perspective on my journey. It was less about deprivation and more about cultivating a positive mindset.


“Mindset” by Carol Dweck: Embracing Growth

Dweck’s book was like a guide for navigating challenges. She discusses fixed and growth mindsets. When I encountered obstacles (like an unexpected slice of cake), I didn’t view it as a failure. Thanks to Dweck’s insights and the tools provided by the Healthi app, I saw it as an opportunity for learning and personal growth. It wasn’t just about losing weight; it was about personal development.

When I finally kicked off my Healthi journey, I wasn’t just physically prepared—I was mentally armed and ready. Thanks to Sinek, Leaf, and Dweck, my mindset was primed for success. Those ‘whys’ became my guiding star, positivity became my constant companion, and setbacks transformed into stepping stones. If you’re gearing up for your own Healthi journey, consider giving these books for success a read. If you’re already on your Healthi journey, they’re still worth exploring! While they might not work miracles, they certainly have a significant impact on aligning your mindset for success. Let’s do this together!
