Can you think yourself thin?

The answer is, yes – sort of 🙂 The bottom line: it can’t hurt, it may help, definitely worth a try. Affirmations are something I have always promoted with my clients, and something I use myself. In the beginning, I’ll admit it does feel a little wacky saying things to yourself that you don’t yet believe, but you’ll get used to it.

By adding a visualization while you are saying your affirmation, you will add fuel to the fire. If you know you need to exercise more, try telling yourself, “I enjoy exercising most days of the week” while picturing yourself being active.

The added bonus of taking time out to say affirmations and visualize your goal is that it can bring you back to the present moment. And, when you think about it, the present moment is the only time we have the opportunity for change.

Hi! I'm Heather: a body positivity, Health at Every Size dietitian. When I'm not blogging about wellness, I'm spending time with my fabulous family. Sometimes, they wear me out, so then it's time to bake, read, knit, tie myself into a yoga pose, or continue to work my first novel... stay tuned.

    • You are right on! It is so important to focus on the positive. If you tell yourself, “I am so fat”, or “Losing weight is so hard”, your brain will create this reality. Go with, “I have a beautiful body” and “it is easy to achieve my perfect weight” instead! Best wishes on your weight loss journey!

  1. I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your site. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme? Fantastic work!

  2. Not a treadmill on the rat race but a beautiful moment of happiness love and that life is really a lot more fun than we are allowing ourselves to experience.Rather than got through an entire mediation course and look into various teachings the easiest way to get yourself into this present moment feeling is to break yourself out of your comfort zone and do something that will allow you to feel the present right now.
