Lose Weight Forever By Reframing Your Thinking


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Self talk & how you think about your weight loss journey makes a huge difference to your success. I have reframed how I do this to help me feel focussed & positive. I'm 70+ lbs down, & I didn't LOSE that weight! I ddn't mislay it & I don't plan to pick it up again later. I RELEASED it, & it's gone, outa here. It hasn't got resident's rights, & it's not hanging around waiting to climb back on board!

If I put on weight, it is NEW weight. I didn't reconnect with some old fat, or gain some treasure! It is a temporary uninvited visitor, & it ain't sticking around, I'll see to that!
Amazing what a difference in attitude this mental trick is making for me.

    Thank you so much I am going to use the term of releasing weight.

    Very good point, I have always hated the term "lose weight" because it sounds like you are looking to find it again. I love your term "release weight" it puts a much better mental image to the task. emoticon
