Are you one of those people who weigh themselves on the scales regularly?
Did you know that it actually makes your situation worse not better?
My statement is based on the statement "you tend to get more of what you focus on".
Even if you are focusing on moving away from something. You tend to get more of it because that's where you focus is. May sound a little crazy but it's true.
If we dig a little deeper for an explanation or a contributing factor then we will do well to refer to Psycho-Cybernetics by Dr Maxwell Maltz. A great read, written in 1960 and still quite relevant today.
Using the principle of psycho-cybernetics and our self image we can make a bit more sense of the negative impact of regularly use of scales. Every time you look at the number on the scales you send a message to your unconscious mind that this is your weight. A loop starts where you reinforce this weight as a constant,....your identity...and along with the negative emotions that go with it....you now anchor this in even more deeply.
You might ask "so what should I do?". Simply, do the reverse. Create a positive image of who you want to be and use the same principles to reinforce that new image. You could make a positive, powerful and present tense affirmation about yourself. Like. I'm so happy that I am now wearing my favourite Size ?? outfit.
To add to that you could create a mind movie or vision board of your ideal self.
These are positive steps forward, yet, they rely on your will power to repeat these exercises many times each day.
Here is where hypnosis and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) come into play. Using these tools it is possible to go inside the unconscious mind and change the programming so that you do not have to constantly think of repeating your affirmations or review your mind movie.
We go right to the CPU and install a new pattern of thought, new beliefs, a new identity. After that, the body responds. Like others before you, you may find that portion sizes decrease, you have to tighten the belt because your pants are falling down or maybe even buying a new wardrobe.
To find out how this works why not....come to my workshop...
