1. USING THE WORD 'LOSE'
Let's substitute the word 'RELEASE' for 'LOSE' and I'll tell you why. When you lose something, don't you have the expectation of someday finding it again? As in when you lose your grandmother's ring for instance. You hope and wish that one day you will find it. When you are in 'RELEASE' mode your intention is to let it go permanently.
2. I WANT/NEED/HAVE TO LOSE WEIGHT
If you are always ruminating and obsessing about your current circumstance you will continue to attract that to you. It's important to visualize yourself as being trim, slim, firm and strong. Begin to focus on the body you choose to have and you will create it and slip into it more easily. You are choosing to implement permanent lifestyle changes.
3. I DON'T HAVE TIME FOR EXERCISE
Really...make the time. Aren't you worth it? When you focus on not having enough time, that's what you get...not enough time. When I find I am not able to fit in a full workout, I don't become discouraged. I make good use of the time I have at that moment. I will do 40 minutes of bike riding rather than my usual 60 minutes. Why forgo an opportunity to get some exercise in?
Another thing I would like to point out is that it's important to choose exercise you enjoy. Folks who engage in strenuous, excruciating exercise tend to give it up because they can't maintain the level of effort it requires. Find things that you enjoy doing and you will easily stick with it.
4. I'LL HANG ONTO MY FAT CLOTHES...JUST IN CASE
It is very important to get rid of them immediately as your weight continues to come down. Do not fall into the trap of having several different sizes of clothes in your closet. It will be too easy for you to fill them up again!
5. I MESSED UP, I'LL START AGAIN NEXT WEEK
A minor setback on Monday doesn't have to turn into a full blown binge for the entire day or for the whole week. Get yourself back up on the horse again ASAP. Getting back on track quickly is a wonderful self-esteem booster.
6. WEIGHING YOURSELF CONSTANTLY
You will set yourself up for failure by doing this. An individuals weight fluctuates throughout the day. A great tip to psychologically prepare yourself to be in a slender body is to write down the perfect weight range for you on a piece of paper and tape it over the window of your scale and no peeking!
7. I'M NOT MOTIVATED
Just get started. By doing so you will gain momentum and that is what will inspire you to continue.
Hypnosis is an excellent tool for self-empowerment. Allow me to be a part of your SUCCESS equation. I can help you turn procrastination into ACTION. Let me help you put the umph back in TRIUMPH!
