Your Mind Makes You Lose Weight

Yesterday I shared a blog post about how visualizing my success has been increasing my success in weight loss this year. As I was writing it, I knew the topic felt familiar. Sure enough, I found a similar blog post that I had written just 6 months ago on this topic, here: Visualize Success to be Successful.

Visualizing my success is obviously a really good tactic for me! Just 6 months ago, I was visualizing myself at my current weight {really, I was, read here: Visualize Success to be Successful} -- now, I'm at that weight I envisioned! I'm at the weight I was visualizing 6 months ago {231 lbs. to be exact} and it feels just as good as I thought it would. All of the effort paid off and it was worth it.

Now, as you read in my post yesterday, I have been visualizing myself at my next short-term goal weight, 210 pounds {as part of my 30 by 30 challenge}. I have just under 6 months to get to this next goal and I am certain that if I keep using the tool of visualization, I will get there. I can see it!

Everyone, including myself, likes to talk about the food that helps us to lose weight, or the exercise. But, at the end of the day, it's my mind makes me lose the weight. If I fill my mind with positive thoughts and images, I'll get there. 

If I'm envisioning myself at a lower weight, day after day, my mind will find the ways to make it happen. I'll choose healthier decisions more often than not. I'll "be in the right mind-frame" to succeed. So much of this journey has to do with my mind; it's honestly the most important part of my body to keep healthy.

Readers, how are you taking care of your mind today? I am going to look through my Healthy Living Motivation board on Pinterest.
