Affirmations are simple words or phrases that I can repeat to myself whenever I feel an urge to eat or to skip my daily workout etc. When I have an urge to eat, I take a deep breath. Now I focus my thoughts in a positive, pleasant situation. Now I say: I am good to my body and my body is good to me. The more positive messages I send to myself: the more I'll want to do what's needed to slim down. My affirmations are to be in the present tense to give them a greater sense of power and immediacy. I never use the future tense, because it creates an inner mind program which says that I am not ready now. The present tense, in contrast, affirms my readiness and willingness to reach my goal now. So I keep the affirmation positive with the emphasis on ME AT MY GOAL NOW!
