Losing weight and actually keeping it off can be even more difficult for women after the age of 50, particularly after menopause. Our metabolism slows, we lose muscle mass, we notice that weight gain happens more in our bellies, and we start gaining more weight, more easily than in the past. That added weight gain? Definitely more difficult to take off!
I believe that one major difference you can make when it comes to losing weight is by changing your thoughts and beliefs about weight loss.
Think about it: we have all the information we need on how to lose weight. We can go on to our computer and find it for free. We can go to the library or book store and get books on it.
We know how to lose the weight if we really want to lose the weight.
However, unconsciously, your mind may have a different idea - a different program running in the background that you may not even be aware of.
"It's not safe to lose weight."
"You'll never be able to keep it off."
"It's too hard. Just give up."
"You're not worth it."
"I'll start losing the weight when I have that reunion coming up."
"You're just going to fail anyway."
"I don't want to be noticed. It's not okay to shine."
"I don't deserve to be healthy."
Positive affirmations are like implementing a new software program into your mind - a new empowering, loving, supporting, positive affirmation thought program that will help you better succeed at your weight loss and fitness goals.
Using positive affirmations consistently is like starting a new exercise program and having to build new muscles or just starting to train for a marathon. Using affirmations takes some time, effort, and consistency, but they will begin to alter your beliefs, change your way of thinking, and quiet that small, critical voice.
Through affirmations, you learn to practice new ways of thinking and believing and ultimately transform yourself, your habits, and your well-being.
I want to encourage you to add affirmations to your day to help support you with being healthy and fit.
When you change your thoughts, you change your beliefs, your expectations, your attitude, behavior, how you show up in the world, and ultimately your life.
