See with your inner eyes your ideal future self.
What do you see?
– Are you in shape?
– Do you accept your body?
– How do you often look in the mirror?
– Do you know that body is given to you as a gift?
– Do you love your body?
– At your optimal weight?
– Do you see a bigger body with less energy?
– Or do you see yourself as you are now?
The answer to these questions is important for determining how successful you will be in achieving your weight-loss goals.
Why? Because if you can’t visualize yourself as fit, you cannot expect to be fit.
But this meditation is about more than creative visualization . . .
Have you ever asked yourself WHY you have so much resistance to eating healthy and avoiding junk food?
Why is it such a struggle to make healthy choices?
The answer has to do with your health set point . . .
How Do You See Yourself?
Your brain is a remarkable machine. And because it’s so remarkable, it takes up a lot of energy.
To protect you, it’s always in “power save mode.” So, rather than use the slow processes (methodical, rational thinking), your brain automates anything it can.
You don’t have to think about breathing or use deliberate effort each time you tie a pair of shoes.
But in order for your brain to make decisions quickly, it has to have some guidelines. It relies on memories, knowledge, and past experiences, to create habits. Your patterns of habits and preferences then accumulate to form an “identity.”
If you’re in the habit of overeating or eating unhealthy foods, you’ve built those practices into your health identity. To change your results, you have to change your habits & your behaviors.
To do that, you have to go a little deeper into your health beliefs and your health set point.
It was designed to help you figure out what your health beliefs are. Once you know what your limiting beliefs are in regards to your health, you can start overcoming them. This will lead to behavior, and indeed weight changes—without the tears and guilt.
Go down the following list of affirmations, and read each one out loud slowly and deliberately.
