Dispelling limiting beliefs

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

"We would accomplish many more things if we did not think of them as impossible." - Chretien Malesherbes

My internal monologue has gone something like this for the past four months:

I can't stop eating. I'm blowing up like a balloon.
I'm so fat I'll never be able to lose what I've gained.
I'm addicted to nuts.
I'm a binge eater, it's just what I do and how I cope.
I'll never be able to be successful at losing weight.

I've been giving myself these messages over and over again. I've been so convincing that I've actually made them into a reality.

But they are not real. They are just messages I've been giving myself. And I can change the message and change my reality. I can focus on a new set of messages and make that my current situation.

I maintain my ideal weight with ease.
I feel great in my body and am at peace with food.
I eat seated, slowly and mindfully when hungry.
I cultivate well being everyday.
I have many healthy options for coping with stress.

"To grow, you must be willing to let your present and future be totally unlike your past. Your history is not your destiny." -- Alan Cohen

    Love your new beliefs.

How about adding one about coping strategies? Along the lines of "I have many options for coping with stress" or something like that?

    I like this and will be thinking about it when those nasty negative thoughts begin swarming! I have been having a lot of them lately, after thinking I had done a good job of booting them. It must be the stress.

Now I will remember to replace them with a positive message when they start.

Thank you!

Kristin
