Mirror, mirror on the wall. I'm the most awesome one of all!
We've covered some of the physical strategies to help you reach your goal. Today, we'll cover a mental strategy that works for weight loss or any other goal you're trying to reach. Actually seeing yourself as successful is critical to succeeding.
"If I can see it, then I can do it. If I just believe it, there's nothing to it." Powerful song lyrics and so very true. We block our success when we don't believe it will happen for us and cannot picture it for ourselves.
Every morning, look at yourself in the bathroom mirror, and say out loud "I am reaching my goal weight". Visualization is a strong force made stronger by your belief that it will happen. Use it to succeed.
*Visualize what you will look like when you reach your goal weight and think of how great you'll feel. Replay that picture and feel those feelings over and over in your mind, each time truly believing it is true for you.
*Make a list of the ways your life will improve once you reach your goal weight, and post it where you can see it often.
*Picture yourself buying a new wardrobe in a smaller size and donating your old clothing to charity.
*Think of the extra energy you will have because you're not carrying around those extra pounds.
*Drive negative thoughts out with positive affirmations that you are strong and healthy.
Body, Mind and Spirit working together in harmony are unstoppable.
