Weight Loss Success Using Positive Beliefs
I recently read an article in Huffington Post Healthy Living by William Anderson on weight loss success. He’s is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor who specializes in weight loss, eating disorders and addictions. Anderson is the creator of “Therapeutic Psychogenics”, which is the technique he teaches country-wide to individuals, therapists and about which he authored his book.
Anderson highlights the very magical power of faith in his teaching. As he says, according to Webster’s Unabridged Dictionary, the first definition of faith is “trust or confidence in a person or a thing” and the second definition is “belief that is not based on proof”. At its most basic level, his technique shows that your mind/body will create what you think. This refers to what you really think (and believe) at a subconscious level.
As Anderson explains, your mind/body affects everything in your body and life every minute of every day. Your subconscious runs your habits, cravings, immune system, memory, muscles, organs, desires, everything – without fail – 24/7.
Weight Loss Success Through Hypnosis and Meditation
Now, if you’ve attended a seminar or experienced a self-hypnosis session and you immersed yourself for an hour or so in thoughts about eating healthy foods, exercising and how great it will feel to lose weight, you probably spent a few days in a state of increased motivation. You were able to control cravings and stay on course for a while, but that probably didn’t last.
After some time passes and the inspirational “cloud” clears, you’re left with your default settings, once again. These thoughts are at the base of everything and who you are. They are constantly at work. If you actually believe that you’re destined to be fat or that being overweight is your genetic programming, you must convert those thoughts to ones that will support you on your healthy journey of weight loss success.
As we all know, there are many aspects to healthy, successful weight loss. There are no quick fixes, but the process can be extremely rewarding and fun. Set forth a good, solid plan that you can stick with. Stay informed, stay inspired and every day will bring you closer to your goals.
