Just don't do it. Don't do that to yourself.
There is so much negativity tied up in that one declaration.
- You're telling yourself you're not good enough now.
- You're purposely setting yourself up to fail.
- It makes you feel bad about yourself.
All great indicators not to make that damn resolution.
Instead, make a resolution to work on your thoughts, to better how you feel and do all the fun and exciting things you would do if you were already thin. Stop waiting on the weight. Go to the root of the problem, not the cause.
Believe it or not, those three examples lead to weight loss. Say whaaat? You didn't see anything about weight loss in there!
Yup, training your mind and not your ass and doing before getting is a more healthy way to lose weight but also the fastest way to lose weight..
How do I figure that?
As Marianne Williamson and Tony Robbins both say.. "Your body is a response to your thoughts, not the other way around."
Read that again; Your body is a response to your thoughts.
Your thoughts are the cause of your wanting to lose weight (or gain it), your body isn't!! Poor thing is just responding to what you're thinking.
So my friend, if your resolution is to lose the weight or get fit..
Intend to work on the mind because until you start making changes to your psychology you'll yo-yo around diets and exercise. You'll lose the weight only to gain it back because you didn't work on the foundation.
Give yourself permission to do the things you wanna do when you're thin, right now. That's actually the real secret to weight loss, letting yourself be who you truly are. So stop waiting on the weight and go out and buy that hot dress, become self employed, pursue your dancing dreams and LIVE. The point of life is to LIVE, not wait till everything is perfectly lined up.
Be kind to yourself over these holidays, use my favourite affirmation "I am perfect the way I am as I am"
Don't beat yourself up for not sticking to your daily practice/exercise routine/diet over this period. This time is about relaxation, recuperation and being with loved ones.
Your worth is not tied up in your size, your weight or body image. You are perfect now.
Let's make 2013 the year we stop punishing ourselves. I'm with you on this one too buddy.
