Decorate a box and put all of your wishes and prayers in it. Be as specific as possible. For example instead of "I want to lose weight." Change it to: "I am at my desired weight goal." Put all of your health goals and wishes in it. "I love the taste of fruits and veggies." You can be as creative as you want to, and use affirmation statements as if they have already came true. Review your wish box daily and have faith, you may be surprised how you're inspired to make your wishes a reality.

I envision the fat just melting off my body. . . My face is getting slimmer, etc. I tell myself very day how much stronger I am getting. Because I speak positive to myself through out the day when I am faced with a temptation I can walk away. . . Smiling.
