13 Surprising Habits for Lasting Weight Loss
Have you tried to lose weight, but never been able to keep it off? Or maybe you gave up on your weight loss journey long before you even started?
You’re not alone.
Nearly every weight loss program misses one key element and as a result, most weight loss programs FAIL.
So what is this magic ingredient?
Now before you stop reading, do yourself a favor and be open to learning something new today.
I believe that when you start loving yourself, that is when your weight loss journey truly begins!
Most of us hold on to decades of guilt and shame from our past.
When we hold onto these feelings, our minds trick us into thinking there is something wrong with us and that we aren’t good enough or worthy of love…. We convince ourselves into thinking we don’t deserve to lose weight and feel amazing.
We feel trapped and helpless in our very uncomfortable “comfort zones”.
Can you relate to this?
A powerful exercise to release these emotions is to write down all of the things you feel guilt or shame about.
Next, write down how you forgive yourself. Then burn this piece of paper with the intention that you are letting go of this guilt and shame forever.
We are all human and we all make mistakes. When we release all of the guilt and shame we’ve been holding in for years and truly forgive ourselves, that is when the magic starts to happen.
13 Life-Changing Self-Love Habits:
- Write out some positive emotions
- Stay well hydrated throughout the day
- Go to bed early
- Learn to say no to people and projects that no longer serve you
- Enjoy a relaxing bath
