Making Weight Loss Affirmations More Effective
Weight loss affirmations are a great way to improve your mindset and create positive changes in your body, but only if they are used in the right way. People often write their affirmations to focus on the wrong things, or they make them too weak or scattered to be effective. No wonder they don’t see any positive changes as a result! This article is going to share two power tips for creating strong, focused weight loss affirmations.
First things first: What are you trying to achieve with your affirmations? It’s important to include words that portray the outcome you want to achieve. In this case, you want to achieve weight loss – but not for the reason you think. Your true goal is an essence – a feeling. Carrying extra pounds on your body probably makes you feel tired, sluggish, awkward, and ashamed of your body, right? Losing the extra pounds and getting in better shape will make you feel light, happy, confident and pleased with your body.
Focus on how you want to feel after losing weight, not necessarily the numbers on the scale. An affirmation that says, “I now weigh 125 pounds” doesn’t really tune into your true goal. Instead, how about one like this: “I feel so light, confident and fit!”
There was another clue in that last paragraph, did you see it? The power of positive emotion. To be effective, your affirmations need to trigger a sense of joy, excitement, and anticipation. Otherwise you might as well be saying a collection of nonsense words – they won’t change anything. When your emotions are activated, you generate a strong intent and direct it toward the outcome you want. That’s the true power of the law of attraction in action.
Next important step: Keep saying your weight loss affirmations over and over all day long. Saying them only once or twice a day will accomplish nothing. Instead, be relentless about it. Say them over and over while you are driving, shopping, watching television, taking a walk, meditating, or doing anything else. The more frequently you do, the faster they are going to replace any old, limiting beliefs you may have been holding.
Last point: Be sure to inject a strong sense of conviction and strength into your affirmations. Mumbling them flatly won’t accomplish much – but if you say them strongly, with intent and power, you are likely to get much better results from them, and they will probably start working in less time than they otherwise would. How long will it take to see results? Most people, if they are dedicated and persistent should feel and see some positive changes taking place within 7 to 14 days. Sometimes less, sometimes a little more, but the changes should get bigger and better the longer you work on it.
