I had to lose weight. But now I weigh 248 pounds and I should weigh 185 pounds. That’s 63 pounds to lose. It doesn’t seem possible. But I must do it. I can no longer stand being this overweight. I just don’t know if I can do it. How can I get rid of these doubts? They are holding me back. Garry Waligore
Doubts bring us down. We can get inspired and motivated and then crash once the doubts set in. Doubts can trigger a binge. I can’t lose weight anyways so why not eat those cookies. They are like a heavy weight keeping you down. Here’s 6 Tools to get rid of them.
They are my favorite way to use self hypnosis. You listen and they motivate you, help remove temptations & doubts, and gain insight. I have 2 types: ‘relax’ and ‘outloud’ and they range from 2-10 minutes. The outloud keeps you in normal consciousness and can be listened to while cooking, cleaning, walking, anytime anywhere. The relax track takes you deeper. You need to sit or lie down in a quiet area or use headphones. They are short so they will give you a quick burst of motivation.
The relax “I Believe” track is a good example. It is for removing doubts. It lasts 8:25 minutes. Listen to it. It follows the outline below.
Use the words ‘I can’ often. I can lose weight. I can eat less. I can exercise. I can get an ‘A’ on my Math exam. I had to lose 63 pounds. I knew it was possible. But I thought the odds were very slim. Doubts were popping up like popcorn. I just didn’t have the strength and willpower. I was too old. I get stressed out. Sometimes I get anxious or angry. It would probably take a year. Could I last that long? 18 months later I have lost 57 pounds with just a little more to lose. I know I can make it.
The words ‘I can’ are easier to accept than ‘I will’. If you have doubts start using the word ‘I can’ right away until you start believing you can. I can lose weight. I can exercise. I can get an ‘A’ on my Math exam. I can study and learn the material.
EXERCISE – Start telling yourself: I can lose weight or I can eat less or I can weigh 125 pounds. Out loud or to yourself. Do this during a work break, while walking from your car, before studying, anytime anywhere.
Just daydream about losing weight. Imagine the weight coming off. See the scale coming up with lower numbers. See feel the benefits. Whatever you want daydream about it anytime anywhere.
Do this as often as you can. It takes only a few seconds. Do this while taking a work break, waiting in line, walking into the gym, anytime anywhere. Your Inner Mind (subconscious) needs to be told what you want. The conscious mind is the driver in a car with the Inner Mind the car. Your conscious mind needs to steer, to step on the gas pedal and step on the brakes when needed. You can reach your goals.
If you are having doubts floating thru your mind they could be from past failures. You may have tried to lose weight many times or tried to quit smoking. Each time you failed you felt crushed and hopeless. Or you may have lost the weight but gained it back.
Look at your history regarding weight loss and other areas of your life. Bring up your past attempts. Ask and reflect on these two questions. What was going on? What did I learn? You can also use peace self hypnosis. Self hypnosis takes some time to learn but you don’t have to go deep. Just say the words and go with them. This exercise is on the “I Believe” audio track above.
Sit or lie down.
Use peace self hypnosis.
Say: My shoulders, arms and hands are at peace.
My chest and stomach are at peace.
My back is at peace. I am at peace.
Let feelings of peace come over you.
Bring into awareness your goal.
Say: I can reach my goal 3 times.
Look at a past failure.
Ask: What was going on?…
What did I learn?
Visualize being ok with this.
While your failures can be discouraging, your successes can be super motivating. Look over your life for your accomplishments. Bring into your mind a success that you had. It can be about weight loss or something else. Look at the difficulties you had to overcome. See feel yourself having these feelings of success. You can also use strong self hypnosis. This exercise is on the “I Believe” audio track above.
Use strong self hypnosis.
My shoulders, arms and hands are strong.
My chest and stomach are strong.
My back is strong. I am strong.
Let feelings of strength come over you.
Now bring up a past success.
Let feelings of success come up.
Look at what you had to overcome.
You did this and you can reach this goal.
See feel yourself reaching your goal.
Within in you a new person is emerging. One that loses weight. See feel this new person emerging. Visualize it growing inside your chest and emerging from it perhaps like a butterfly emerging from a cocoon. You can modify this image if you want. Do this visualization often during your day
