The other day I set the intention to start my weight reducing, rather than put up with the status quo (88kg - ouch, thats 194lb! - in the doctors surgery the other day). You may want to detail other statistics like waist measurements, BMI etc, but I am not the least bit interested in getting that fancy. I just want my weight numbers to get smaller. Plain and simple.
So I came up with these couple of affirmations which I can repeat to myself as and when I choose. You will probably come up with something quite different, or you may like to just use these and plug your own numbers in.
Okay, I can hear the roar of protest. What good is a 3kg (61/2lb) weight loss when you are more than 20kg (44lb)overweight? Well, there is a reason for this. If for example I used 65kg (143lb), my mind would automatically ask me "who do you think you are kidding?", or something along those lines. In other words there would be a disbelieving "tailender" everytime I said it. Or at least that's been my experience. However, 85kg (187lb) is believable, and presumably very achievable in a relatively short space of time.
For this exercise, I am in no particular hurry. I just want to see the numbers start to head in the right direction. So in about a month from now, I will check my weight to see what the result is. I should probably say these morning and night and several times during the day.
You will notice I have not mentioned anything about food or diet in this post. This is because I believe that weight issues, up or down, start in the mind. If I get the mental side of things sorted, the rest will follow, or at least, that's my theory.
And if you really feel ready to make a change, you will get all the right support tools for the mental side of things, at this site. I could say "Best of Luck", but if you purchase and implement these programs, you wont need luck. Feel free to join me, and comment your results as you go.
