And that my friends is true for weight loss and putting an end to emotional eating…
No doubt you’ve heard before that your thoughts become your words, and your words become your actions.
If you believe you can drop the kgs, then congrats, you’re halfway there. If you think you can’t – because of all sorts of reasons, excuses, stories and lies that go on in your head – then guess what …? It ain’t gonna happen!
Until you think you can, any attempts made will end in frustration and you’re probably feeling more miserable.
If you’ve been a yo-yo dieter then you know that you start out with all the good intentions in the world. This time it’s going to happen…
Over time however, you can’t maintain the momentum of ‘the diet’ – the restriction the deprivation – and more often than not you end up giving up and putting the weight back on… and maybe more some.
I’d like you do something for me. Think back for me to that time and check in with yourself. Did you really believe in your heart and in your head that you’d be successful with your diet? Did you make the necessary changes to the way you think and how you act to make it all happen?
Or perhaps you’re an emotional eater.
You’re stressed from work or family ‘stuff’ and you relieve your stress by heading to the pantry, fridge or cookie jar. Or perhaps you’re hurt by someone’s words and/or actions, or feel sad or lonely and you seek comfort in a box of chocolates or ten oversized chocolate easter bunnies! (it’s that time of year!)
You finish your chocolate frenzy and let me ask you this – has the boredom, frustration, stress, hurt, anger or loneliness gone away? I’m guessing it did for a fleeting moment, but then it came back hitting you like a freight train. Now what do you do next? You throw the emotion of guilt onto the pile because you’re beating yourself up over your little pig out!
Do you think you can break out of this cycle?
Do you believe you can?
Or do you believe you’re caught in the stuck rut and it’s hopeless, so why bother? Why not just keep eating? It’s all too hard…
You haven’t done it in the past so why on earth is it going to change in the future?
It doesn’t have to be this way.
The way you think plus the way you focus plus the way you act is going to give you the results you want. Your head has to be in the right place to successfully drop your weight once and for all.
This the reason why I do what I do, I know this is the missing link and I see the positive change in my wonderful clients after we’ve worked together. I’m going to share some of this with you on my new webinar – 7 Steps to Permanent Weight Loss.
