Weight loss affirmations are absolutely essential to the accomplishment of fast weight loss and to achieving results which last you a lifetime. This is the reason why people who used solutions like self hypnosis or NLP along with their exercise and nutrition programs have a significantly higher success rate when it comes to healthy and permanent weight loss. Of course, it’s also important that you understand how and why affirmations work so that you can make the most of them and get results that stick.
So if you’re ready to achieve your ideal weight and to enjoy greater energy and self-esteem, this simple, straightforward and effective formula for creating weight loss affirmations is just what you’re looking for.
Step One: Set Your Target Weight
The very first step to developing effective weight loss affirmations is setting a specific target weight which you would feel great about achieving. Most people who want to lose weight make the mistake of telling themselves that they want to do just that… lose weight. The problem with this is that you’ve been conditioned to think of losing something as being bad, so when your subconscious mind hears anything about losing, it automatically associate that with a negative emotion.
Besides, no one really wants to lose weight…. what they really want is to be at their ideal weight, which is a simple distinction but a critical one when it comes to fast weight loss.
TIP: In order to determine your ideal weight, it’s a good idea to either use a reliable target weight calculator or to consult a physician. Never set your target weight by guesswork or because you feel like that’s the only weight you can be happy at.
Step Two: Decide What You’re Going to Change
If you want to accomplish fast weight loss, you’re going to need more than just positive weight loss affirmations or diet pills. You’re going to have to make changes in your diet and in your activity level. Any attempt to find a way around this and to achieve fast weight loss is going to take a toll on your body which simply isn’t worth the sacrifice. So in addition to determining your target weight, determine exactly what changes you’re going to make in order to accomplish it. This will give your subconscious mind a specific set of actions to motivate your body to take.
Step Three: Build Your Affirmations
Once you’ve determined your target weight and what you’re willing to change in order to accomplish it, it’s time to start building your weight loss affirmations. To do this, you’ll need to follow for basic principles:
1) Make them in the present tense
2) Make them in the first person
3) Make them affirmative (avoid using words like: stop, won’t, quit, lose, not, no etc.)
4) Make them action oriented
Action oriented means that your affirmations address one of your specific actions that are determined in step two. In other words:
“I’m eating more natural foods and therefore achieving my ideal weight through reconditioning my metabolism.”
“I’m achieving my ideal weight through commitment to resistance training and cardiovascular training.”
“I’m enjoying increased energy and self-confidence because of my commitment to proper nutrition and an active lifestyle.”
Notice how all of these weight loss affirmations were written in the present tense, that they all use the word “I’m”, and that all of them are affirmative and action oriented. This is how you write them. Then you put them to work…
Step Four: Daily Rehearsal
Reconditioning your subconscious mind using weight loss affirmations follows the same set of principles as reconditioning your body. As you know, you can’t go to the gym a few times and achieve permanent results. You must commit yourself to consistent activity and make it a part of your lifestyle…and most important, enjoy it. So once you have your daily weight loss affirmations written, speak them allowed once in the morning and once in the evening.
This is the secret to conditioning your subconscious mind for fast weight loss through positive weight loss affirmations.
