Once You decide to learn something new or to create a change, such as reducing your weight, pay attention to the words and statements You use. If we fill our thoughts with self-sabotaging words, we could face difficulties in achieving your goal.
For example, think of the statement “I am trying to lose weight.” It is a doubly self-sabotaging sentence. Our subconscious is trained to believe that “losing” is not good for us, such as losing keys or a wallet. We all learned that “losing something” means we need to find it again — welcome to the famous “yo-yo effect” in dieting by having to find the “lost weight” again!
Secondly, the word “trying” implies failure. By saying that You are trying, You are telling yourself that You will or can not do it. The word “trying” is applied appropriately only to true past failure “I tried and failed” and to trying on clothes in a store. I’d like to suggest a different statement: “I am on the path of dropping or reducing weight.” Or even better, healthier: “I am gaining muscle weight and shedding excess body fat.”
