The Law of Attraction says that our thoughts, both positive and negative, bring positive or negative experiences to our lives. The main idea is that like energy attracts like energy; wealthy thoughts bring wealth, and poor thoughts bring poor results. Positive thoughts bring more positivity to life while negative thoughts bring more negativity.
It works like a magnet or honey for bees on the basis of attraction, hence the name Law of Attraction. All the things we attract into our lives are the answer to our thoughts and energy, not the answer to what we want or don’t want.
Most people who have just learned about the Law of Attraction usually ask three big questions: How do I get rich?, How do I find a love of life?, and How do I lose weight? Sometimes, weight loss comes before getting rich.
How do you lose weight with the Law of Attraction?
Losing weight with the Law of Attraction is exactly the same as attracting money. Even though when you’re losing weight, you are losing excessive pounds, and when you’re getting rich, you are gaining wealth. They are two contradictory words, yet they have so much in common—the goal of achieving something.
In order to lose weight or attract more money, you need to have a crystal clear vision of what it is that you want. “I want to be skinny” is not the right idea to get started. “I want to lose weight” is also not the right idea. How can the universe know what being skinny looks like? How can the universe know how many pounds you want to lose? Is it just two pounds or twenty pounds?
Everyone perceives things differently, and the universe simply does not know what is a little, what is a lot, what is skinny, and what is fat. The universe doesn’t even know what a lot or little money is. For some, $10,000 is a lot while for others it is little.
Learn to define exactly what you want to achieve
The Law of Attraction works best if you are as specific as possible. What you need to do is to define exactly how many pounds you want to lose and set a deadline.
Sit down, take out a pen and notepad, and write down your exact goal. You can formulate it into several affirmations:
- I am attaining my desired weight now
- I now weight 130 pounds
- By December 20, 2019, I weigh 130 pounds
- I am determined and ready to lose weight
- My body is getting stronger and healthier every day
Or it may look like a letter to yourself: law of attraction for weight loss
“I know my weight is what lowers my self-esteem and prevents me from doing many things and being more social. I decided to work on myself, and I decided to discover my inner beauty, strength, and courage. By December 20, 2019, I weigh 130 pounds. I have higher self-esteem and feel great in my own skin. I am grateful that I have the strength to make a change, and I am grateful for achieving my goal.”
Reprogram your subconscious mind
Once you have a clear vision of how many pounds you want to lose and see your future self in your inner eye, you have already created the body you want to own. The body or the perfect weight already exists in your mind and now is the time to transform this idea into physical form.
A lot of people ask how to get started. Should I immediately go into a caloric deficit? Should I eat less? Should I start attending sports clubs or run every day? Should I start walking 20,000 steps every day or cut carbs from my life?
The biggest mistake people do is that they immediately plunge into things that promise weight loss. They start eating less and doing more sports, or they walk more during each day or buy the smartest devices to control every calorie they burn.
All this is not long-lasting because it usually ends as fast as it started, and such determination to lose weight can last only a few days or weeks. Maybe they’ll lose a few pounds during the first weeks, but in a few months they can gain these pounds back or even more.
Once you make the decision to lose a certain number of pounds by a certain date, don’t start with anything mentioned above. Start with small but powerful steps, which are affirmations and visualization.
Slowly but surely start getting used to repeating positive affirmations at least twice a day, preferably in the morning after you wake up, either in bed or in front of the mirror. Do it the same way every night before you go to sleep. You can repeat positive affirmations whenever you have a moment of time—at the bus stop, in the subway, in the bathtub.
Also, start with visualization. Imagine yourself looking the way you want to look. See yourself already wearing that wonderful small-sized skirt. See yourself standing in front of the mirror and telling yourself how proud you are. Literally feed your subconscious mind with affirmations and visualizations because it’ll get used to it over time, and it’ll start to act in such a way that you start losing weight, naturally and effortlessly.
You’ll start eating meals that will help you lose weight. You’ll start to move more, so you will burn more calories. If you eat something extra, you won’t regret it, because in the depth of your mind you know that you won’t gain a single pound.
Don’t push yourself too hard. Do not limit yourself. You can start where you are, do what you can and use what you have. Weight loss is easy and fun!
