Weight loss is one of the most common goals and New Year’s resolutions of most of us. Whether your reason is better health or you want to be happier with your physical appearance, weight loss is possible.
And even though gaining extra pounds is easier than losing them, purposefulness and determination is the key to your dream physique..because weight loss starts in your head.
You can start moving more, you can start eating healthier, but if your thoughts are not in line with your goal and you do not believe yourself that you can lose the extra pounds, your body will be in a conflict with your thoughts and will not let the excess pounds disappear.
Whatever your goal is, believe in your ambitions and use positive affirmations, which are a great tool not only for weight loss. Before you start with positive affirmations, remember that:
- Positive affirmations should only be formulated in the present tense: “I am..I have..“
- Be precise and specific when formulating your affirmations: “I weigh 130 pounds by July 20, 2019” or “I’m on my way to weight 140 pounds by August 30, 2019“
- Positive affirmations should be positive, so formulate your affirmations correctly. Instead of “I want to lose twenty pounds” say “I now weight 120 pounds”.
Speak these weight loss affirmations out loud for about 3 to 5 minutes at least twice a day – morning and evening.
