Weight Release! Yes that’s what we all want isn’t it? For the weight to once and for all release from our bodies and to stay gone forever. You see, the unconscious mind is very literal and it doesn’t like to lose anything! the word “loss or lose” has many negative connotations or negative feelings come up when we talk about loss… I lost my (family member), i lost my dog, i lost my shirt, i lost my (wife/husband), i lost my keys,… You get the point right? Who wants to lose or to feel loss? When we release the weight and attain our goals, we become winners!
So once you learn more about the unconscious mind and how it works for your greater benefit, you may change the wording you use in many areas of your life. for example, you unconscious mind cannot process a negation directly, so when i say… “Don’t think of your favorite dessert”, what just happened? Did you mind fill up with all the yummy desserts you love? I bet it did. But, i said don’t!… so what is the key? Ask yourself what you want specifically? and What will you gain by shedding the weight? My clients tell me they’ll gain better health, more energy, better sleep, confidence and self esteem. So what will you gain?
You see, I’ve struggled with weight for many years, from the age of 16 when i was first put on anti depressants and gained 30 lbs! I began bodybuilding at age 18 which really helped and i continue to train today at age 47. During those years, i had some significant emotional events happen, stress and yo yo dieting too. i gained 80 lbs when i was pregnant and weighed 210 lbs. It took time to get the weight off, and i went down to 130 lbs.
I have fluctuated between 165 and 145 for many years. Some of my eating habits/emotional eating was tied to early sexual abuse. And the research shows that many women who are overweight, were abused in some way as children. The weight stays on for protection. So when they begin to lose the weight, they self sabotage (unconsciously) because the unconscious mind is saying, I have to protect you and i will. Many women tell me they don’t know why they keep self sabotaging themselves… it may be linked to childhood emotional events.
If your sad, depressed, stressed, pissed off, frustrated, hurt do you eat? NO, we want to deal with those emotions instead of filling the void with unhealthy foods. Time Line Therapy techniques can greatly help release those negative emotions from root cause. To learn more about TLT go HERE
Now, there are 4 Habits i go by now and you can also implement these 4 easy healthy habits. I didn’t come up with them, they actually come from a famous hypnotist in the UK, Paul McKenna, I don’t think Paul invented them. I think they actually preexist Paul, but he made them popular.
Habit number 1 is to ask yourself, AM i physically Hungry? Or do i need love, attention, a hobby or something else? Eat when you are truly physically hungry and have a glass of water first to make sure you are not just thirsty!
Habit number 2 is eat when you enjoy – within reason as there are plenty of healthy foods to enjoy. If you hate Brussel sprouts like i do, don’t eat them. Its not about forcing yourself to eat foods you hate, that will not last. its also not about restricting all other foods either. If you LOVE chocolate, and i tell you that you’ll never be able to eat it again, how long will that last? This is why so many Diets fail because of the restrictions. 98% of diets fail, when you use willpower alone!
In step number 2, I go a step beyond and get my clients to ask themselves this question. “Is this food i’m about to eat bringing me towards or away from my goals?” This is a powerful question because your unconscious mind will let you know.
Habit number 3 is to eat consciously and mindfully. What does that mean exactly? Slow down, way down and eat without distractions. Take time at the dinning room table to eat without the TV, cell phone or computer near by. Really taste and enjoy your food slowly which will also help with digestion.
Habit number 4 is to stop eating when you feel satisfied but not full. Are you a clean plate club member? Growing up we had to eat what was in front of us before we could leave the table. Know that you can leave a little bit of food on your plate which will also send a signal to the unconscious mind that you are in complete control around food. You can save it for later for when you are truly physically hungry!
If you follow these golden steps and practice them consciously for about 2 to 3 weeks, they will begin to be unconscious behaviors. If all you do is these steps, you will see a difference in your waistline. My goal for you is to find success, do what’s right for your body and mind.
