As people begin to to make their resolutions for the new year, I thought I would share two of my favorite affirmations for weight loss. This seems to be a top priority as people set their goals for the months ahead.
The affirmations I am going to share were developed by myself during the period of 2010 and 2012 when I managed to lose 40 pounds by making basic changes in my lifestyle habits. I typed these affirmations out on a piece of paper, and below the text I placed a photo of myself from a time when I was at my ideal weight (185 pounds). Then I would read the affirmations out loud while looking at the picture of myself. This combines the power of the spoken word with the process of creative visualization.
In addition, as I repeated my affirmation and looked at the image of myself with my ideal weight, I imagined that I was looking at myself in the mirror RIGHT NOW. This brings the experience into the present tense, which is where the power to change resides.
Here is my first affirmation.
By making incremental changes in my patterns of eating and physical activity, I gradually and responsibly lose weight until I reach and sustain my ideal weight and waistline. Thank you spirit.
And here is my second affirmation.
I am lean, I am strong, I am fit, I am flexible. I eat high nutrient, low energy dense foods which give me the feeling of fullness and satiety. As a result I burn more calories than I take in, and my body attains and sustains its ideal weight and waistline.
Thank you spirit for my renewed health and vitality. I truly am younger next year.
Try these out for yourself. I think you will find them helpful.
