Seems like everyone is talking about positive visualizations and affirmations these days, and for good reason: they work!
If you haven’t jumped on the bandwagon yet, read on. I’m going to share some valuable information about how these kinds of techniques can speed your weight loss.
How do I know? Because I use these techniques in my life, too.
Aye, Aye, Captain!
When it comes to the body, our conscious mind is the captain of the ship. The subconscious mind cannot fight against the orders of the conscious mind, which is why affirmations work so well.
If you really take on a positive affirmation and repeat it to yourself with emotion multiple times a day for a period of time, it will affect your subconscious mind. Without realizing it, you will start to take actions every day to make your affirmation come true.
So, how does this relate to losing weight? You can choose a mantra to help you eat well and get in the habit or working out frequently. If we give the subconscious the right orders, we will succeed in whatever we set out to accomplish.

Here’s a formula for your first affirmation. You can insert your ideal weight in the blank area:
“I am healthy and happy.
I exercise daily to pursue my goals of even better health.
My food choices are in alignment with my healthy living and I love my ___ lb. body.”

The Nuts and Bolts of Affirmations
Using a positive affirmation will work, but you have to be consistent. Just like the astronauts with the goggles, you need at least 25 consecutive days of affirmation practice to ensure that there will be a shift for you.
Type it up, print it out, and read it out loud to yourself for at least 60 seconds.
Do this every morning when you first wake up and every night before you go to bed.
If you can do it at noon as well, that’s even better.
Keep in mind that you must read with emotion because your subconscious mind understands feeling. You must be able to believe that your affirmation is possible for yourself, or it just won’t come true. Choose something that scares you a little bit, but still feels attainable.
