Lossing weight can be nerve-racking. It’s among the most difficult thing you will ever attempt to do. If you ask 100 different individuals regardless of who they are, I’d wager the vast majority would indcate losing weight was a major problem.
Slimming down can be difficult because it’s frequently done for a special occassion. Shedding a few pounds just in time to fit iinto that dress for the holiday party, or next weekend’s beach trip. Even though it took time to put on the weight, somehow we want it to as if by magic vanish instantly. The fact is that slimming down takes time for everyone. You’re not alone!
Regrettably, those few extra pounds can’t just melt off our bodies, and that’s why most people find it hard to remain presistent and focused on our weight loss goals. Fortunately, there’s a solution and it all begins with a positive and confident mindset.
Weight Loss Affirmations
The trouble that a lot of of us have is that when the weight doesn’t disappear immediately, we get frustrated or discouraged, and that causes us to give into the temptation.of making the wrong food choices. We have thoughts of, “Nothing’s ever going to work so I might as well just eat” that set us back when we have just barely in the weight loss process.
Instead of permitting these thoughts to plant a negative seed in your mind, use affirmations to positively react to negative thoughts. Doing so will also serve as a reminder of your goal. Weight loss affirmations can help you shed pounds by encouraging you to stay focused and motivated, even in times of struggle and disappointment.
Overcoming Self-Defeating Thoughts
We all would like to believe we have the self-discipline necessary to lose weightt. Healthy nutrition often feels like it involves a great deal of work and time, it’s easy to get discouraged and give in to temptation. The problem is that when we get frustrated or impatient, we lose sight of why we initially started on this journey. If you decide to abandon your efforts or are tempted by a forbidden food, you can pull out your list of affirmations and use them to combat the self-defeating thoughts and attitudes.
The greatest thing about affirmations is that they can be used any time of the day or night. After all, they will become embedded into your subconscious! The more you use them, the more your behavior and decisions will change, and the more power you will have over self-defeating thoughts. Here are a few affirmations you can try.
