Here, we share a simple and effective exercise to stop feelings of overwhelm or anxiety creeping in when you set your weight loss goal.
A problem that so many people face is that once they are brave enough to set a big weight loss goal, they begin to feel anxious. Deciding to lose a lot of weight and following a total food replacement (TFR) plan in order to do so is a big step and change in lifestyle. So it’s not surprising that this can bring on feelings of anxiety.
Once you have become excited and created this vision in your head, and feel so clear on your goal, all of a sudden anxiety sets in.
Anxiety from the pressure to get going, and the big goal you’ve set for yourself can suddenly become overwhelming. Before you know it, doubt creeps in. You think “Can I really do this? I don’t think I can? Who was I kidding?”
The pressure to get going, to get through one day 100% TFR, 2 days 100% TFR, 3 days 100% TFR, is too much! It takes the fun out of the initial high that was achieved when the goal was first set, and the dream of getting to a healthy weight seemed so easy.
The pressure to get going, and get started, can take the fun out of it.
It is IMPORTANT for you to remember that this anxiety – that pressure – that doubt – is NOT NECESSARY.
We can let it go, kick back and enjoy life 🙂
All you need to do is affirm over and over again as much as you need to, an affirmation that will lift this anxiety and make you feel at ease and relaxed.
Here is an example of what you can say…
“I am now creating the life, health and body of my dreams, in an easy and relaxed manner, in a healthy and positive way, in its own perfect time.”
Repeat this every day, every morning, every night, when you are out for a walk. Anytime you feel anxiety set in, write it out and read it over and over again. Write your own affirmation – something that means something to you.
Key points to add to your affirmation:
- Use words to frame that you are in the process of creating a healthy body
- Use words that mean you are enjoying the process and you feel calm and relaxed about it
- Use the word healthy in your affirmation
- Realise that some people lose weight faster/slower than other people and that your journey will happen in perfect timing for you
- Be happy with the time it take – as long as you are moving closer to your goal, that’s all that matters
Using this technique you can get yourself back to a place of calm and feeling centred and focused on your goal.
Being on a weight loss journey, you are going to experience many highs and lows. It is important to take action when you go through a low time. Learning how to change your thinking and focus will help you to get back on track sooner.
So the next time you dare to dream about living a slim fit healthy lifestyle, and you get clear on your goal, realise that after this high, a low will come, and you will have feelings of anxiety and doubt. But it is at this point that you can decide to change your focus and using an affirmation can help you to do this.
