Would you like to feel better, look better, feel more energetic? Silly question? Of course all of us want that! After all, it’s hard to stay fit or properly manage your weight as you get older. The doctors tell us that your metabolism gradually slows down as you age. If you know you’re not feeling as good as you want to, if you feel you really need to get serious about losing a few pounds, you know that keeping your weight under control is not so easy in today’s fast-paced world.
So many of us are in such a hurry trying to balance work and home life. So often, we grab something quick and convenient for lunch but that is not always the wisest or healthiest choice. You know you should exercise more but where do you find the time? Stay with me for a moment. For some of you, what you are about to learn will change your life. It’s the secret to success in any area of life and, once you accept this teaching it opens the doors to a new life. And, later in this post, I’ll also introduce you what, in my opinion, is the best, healthy weight loss program available.
But first, I’m going to share with you the secret as to why most people fail at successfully managing their weight on a permanent basis. To put it another way, I’m going to share with you why so many people get on a program, maybe lose a few pounds, only to find that a few weeks or a few months later, they have gained back all the weight they lost in the first place and sometimes more. They end up right back where they started!
Are you one of those who know exactly what I’m talking about? If so, I invite you to keep reading. There is a very good reason why so many people have gotten so frustrated at the prospect of successfully managing their weight on a permanent basis and why, sadly, so many people have just stopped trying.
From a different but similar perspective, “visualization” is how many professional athletes accomplish the seemingly impossible. They “see” the desired results in their mind’s eye before they make that touchdown pass or that great golf or tennis shot. This is another aspect of the key. If you can “see” yourself as looking the way you would like to look, then you stand a much better chance of successfully managing your weight and keeping those pounds off in the long run.
Now, this will take consistent practice just like anything else in life. When you see yourself in your mind’s eye looking and feeling great, you are going to generate an emotional reaction to that image in your mind. You are going to feel great. You’re going to feel like the person you always wanted to be! And that is a critical component. The ‘feeling’ of looking great in your mind’s eye is the fuel that propels you toward success.
Now, if your self-image has been damaged or compromised (usually by those closest to you early in life), the really good news is, that damaged or inadequate self image can be fixed! I want you to be encouraged by the reality that you can repair the image that you have of yourself in your own mind if it has been damaged in some way by the cruel words of others. You must practice “seeing” your ideal self in your mind’s eye.
In short, your ability to lose weight and keep it off, depends on your patterns of thought. So, if you stay with me, you will learn how to virtually transform your life which, in turn, will give you command, not only over your health, but also to your finances, your relationships, your life! As Dr. Joe Dispenza puts it “you, essentially, become a different person”.
“Your program for getting more out of life consists in, first of all, learning something about this Creative Mechanism, or automatic guidance system within you and learn how to use it as a Success Mechanism rather than as a Failure Mechanism. The method itself consists in learning, practicing, and experiencing, new habits of thinking, imagining, remembering and acting in order to (1) develop and adequate and realistic self-image and (2) use your Creative Mechanism to bring success and happiness in achieving particular goals. IF YOU CAN REMEMBER, WORRY OR TIE YOUR SHOE, YOU CAN SUCCEED.” (emphasis added) Dr. Maxwell Maltz, “Psychocybernetics”, Simon & Shuster, Markham, Ontario, Canada, 1969, p. 14.
You will have noticed in the above passage from Dr. Maltz’s book the reference to your “Creative Mechanism”. What does that refer to? You see, “there is a power and a presence within you, and you can use it, to be, do or have anything that you want in this life” Dr. Joseph Murphy, “The Power of the Subconscious Mind”. (available on Amazon – click on the image to purchase). In his easily digestible volume, Murphy communicated the “hidden” truth of life: you are as your mind is. This is the master key that impacts wealth, health, career, relationships and all forms of expression.
“Hold a picture of yourself long and steadily enough in your mind’s eye and you will be drawn toward it”, said Dr. Harry Emerson Fosdick. “Picture yourself vividly as defeated and that alone will make victory impossible. Picture yourself vividly as winning and that alone will contribute immeasurably to success. Great living starts with a picture held in your imagination of what you would like to do or be”. ibid p. 45.
However, a new and improved self-image, by itself, will not lead you to the “Promised Land”. You cannot eat cheeseburgers at McDonald’s every day for lunch and expect to stay healthy and at a weight that is comfortable. Many other things, of course, remain necessary (watch your caloric intake, get some exercise when you can, try to stay hydrated, eat more fruit and vegetables and so on). But, if you put some effort into these things things and begin to “see” yourself as trim and fit, then you will stand a much better chance of successfully managing your weight …PERMANENTLY!
In short, once you have planted a new self-image deep into your subconscious mind, the other things that are necessary for you to remain a “new you” become second nature. In other words, once your new ‘image’ is embedded in your subconscious mind, it is far less likely that you will self-sabotage by those trips to McDonald’s. Doing so would be inconsistent with your new self-image!
There are studies that suggest that probiotics have a role in successful weight loss. See post on The Benefits of Probiotics Supplements”. Link is below:
Do you want to feel better, look better, feel more energetic? Then step #1 is to picture yourself, “See” yourself in your mind’s eye, at your desired weight. Please understand that this exercise takes practice just like anything else in life. Imagine yourself at your desired weight every day as often as you can.
Of course you have to eat responsibly. Get as much exercise as you can. Walking is a terrific way to burn calories easily. Stay hydrated. Integrate more fruits and vegetables into your diet. Get enough sleep. In short, a healthier lifestyle is going to go a long way to helping you achieve your weight loss goal. If you pay attention to these things, you will stand a much better chance of managing your weight successfully.
