THE thing I’ve noticed most during over a decade of helping people to lose weight is that after a few weeks of beginning the latest “new thing,” the excitement and buzz wear off and fear and panic set in.
The destructive little voice in your head starts up again: “You’ll never succeed” or “You always fail, what’s so different this time?” or “What if I don’t lose weight?” or “What will people think if I fail again?”
Well, if this happens to you, I can tell you that you’re not alone. This is such a common thing and it CAN be stopped. That’s what I’m helping you with today.
My new video below, Don’t Let Negativity Hold You Hostage, explains how negativity and self-sabotage can be such a problem.
We’re in week four of the Mindset Reset challenge and it’s around this time in any weight loss exercise that motivation can hit the brakes and our efforts come to a grinding halt.
I’ve seen this SO often over the past 10 years and it causes so many problems.
Of course, sometimes life just gets in the way and we struggle to continue with our new habits and healthy regimes.
But for so many people, self-sabotage is involved and the destructive little voice in your head takes over!
My aim in life is to help you succeed and to inject you with the motivation to overcome the obstacles in your life.
Self-sabotage comes in many forms and I’ll be discussing this on my FB and Instagram live chats in more detail this week – so join me then (scroll down for full details).
Many of the beliefs we have about our body image have started in childhood or during teenage years, and they create an idea that over time becomes an ingrained self-limiting belief. This also sows the seeds of self-doubt.
Our thoughts really matter because our minds and bodies are linked.
We need to give ourselves kind messages and be nice to ourselves because otherwise we’ll find ourselves going round and round in circles and getting nowhere fast.
You must change the script of your life right now so that the soap opera in your mind isn’t on repeat all your life.
This is about believing in yourself. Trusting yourself and having faith that you can bash through the self-doubt and knock down that negative voice in your head!
Have the courage and you will reap the reward.
Your final challenge!
Continue to listen to your Slimpod.
Continue to write your wins.
Be aware when your brain is being hijacked by negativity and reframe the thoughts.
Treat these negative moments as obstacles in life’s journey, keep calm and carry on!
