Motivating Yourself to Lose Weight

Here is some thoughts to end a harried work week and start the weekend:

“DON’T LET LIFE DISCOURAGE YOU. EVERYONE WHO GOT WHERE HE IS HAD TO BEGIN WHERE HE WAS.” –Richard L Evans

What did I have to do to lose 50 lbs (thus far)and keep it off (thus far)? I had to get to know myself. You might be saying, but I do know myself. Do you? I often listen to others say things that just plain aren’t true about themselves. I hear words like “I can’t, I’m weak, I always fail, I give up, I quit, I will never…..”. Are these words really accurately describing the REAL YOU?

Think back about the things you did that you are the most proud of? When you accomplished those things, what words did you use to describe the moments after that? Did any of those words above enter into your telling of those “victories”? I doubt it.

So, here you have one additional task that is in front of you: you want to lose weight. Many of you are under the assumption that you will fail. Why? If you haven’t tried, how can you say that you have failed?

So, how about using these words to describe your weight loss efforts:

” I can lose all of this weight.”

“I am strong enough to do what it takes to lose this weight.”

“I am succeeding at losing weight by making choices that support this decision.”

“I will not give up until I have arrived at my goal weight. No matter what!”

” I am not a quitter except to only quit making excuses, quit complaining and quit procrastinating.”

“I am persistently and consistently reaching towards that goal weight and I will never give up acting upon my desires.”

“I am one day closer to realizing the miracle of rebirth and renewal based on my past and present choices I make.”
