Although I am not a fan of resolutions, I am a fan of adopting new belief patterns. This is your assignment as the New Year approaches.
Write down all the beliefs you have around food, exercise, and your body. For example:
- Food makes me fat.
- I eat too much.
- My appetite is too big.
- I hate exercise.
- Exercise is too hard.
- I don’t have time to exercise and/or cook.
- It’s hard to lose weight.
- My body just doesn’t lose weight like other people’s.
- I am not meant to be thin.
Just list all of them out. Then cross out each one, and write an empowering belief. For example:
- Food provides my body with energy, and that is never a bad thing.
- I am learning how to listen to my body when it is full.
- I am excited to fill my life with other soulful hobbies to curb my appetite for life.
- I get to try all sorts of movements until I find the one that I truly love.
- My body likes to be challenged when it feels happy and motivated, I can’t wait to accomplish tasks I never thought possible.
Instead of resolutions, you are re-training your subconscious to adopt new beliefs towards weight loss. This is the first step to getting the results you desire. So, instead of running to sign up for the gym or stocking up on healthy food, take the time to get aligned. Figure out what you really want in life. Do you even want to go to the gym, or would you rather buy Dance Dance Revolution? Do you want to stock up on healthy food, or do you simply want to learn how to cook more?
You don’t have to do anything! You could do anything, and you should do anything. None of that other stuff matters! These are the things that matter: What fills you with joy? What can you not live without? How do you envision yourself living the rest of your life (at your goal weight)? That is exactly how you want to live today.
Happy New Year!
