I was searching the net for some "positive affirmations for weight loss" and I decided to check the first site on the list. I did this mainly because I want to distract myself from the plate of homemade shortbread in the kitchen. Mmmmmmmmm!!! Love It!
Sorry :) I got a little sidetracked there ;)
Anyway, I was saying that I clicked on the first site on the list, and I was going to say that I am glad I did. Two of the affirmations on this list really stuck out to me.
The first one was: Losing weight is effortless.
And the second one was: I'm making things easy for myself now.
Both of these statements really grabbed my attention. I know that losing weight is effortless. I have proven it to myself time and again. What could be easier than losing weight? You don't have to really do anything to lose weight. You just have to not do some things ;) I mean, sure, exercise is important and it will make you feel better. But mostly you just have to not eat all the cookies, doughnuts, muffins, chips, crackers, etc., etc., etc.
Losing weight is effortless, it's the job of convincing myself to do it that is hard.
I swear, all of the work I do is internal. Continuous arguments back and forth. Except, instead of having an angel and a devil on my shoulders I have fat me and thin me. Both clever, both indefatigable, both driving me crazy :)
Which brings me to the next affirmation that is sticking with me: I'm making things easy for myself now.
This is how it works, for me at least. I work through my inner turmoil - enter fatty and skinny :), I convince myself to just do it, then I do it, really!!!, usually for a while, ...and the cycle continues.
But, for today, I am convinced! I am going to step away from the struggle, for today, and I am going to just do it already!!! Today I am definitely making things easy for myself. Yay :)
Here's the whole list of affirmations if you are interested:
