Sometimes I catch myself saying "I want to be healthier" or "I want to lose fat" and I change it to "I AM healthier" and "I AM losing fat". Each choice and each gram means I am doing something, in the powerful present, it is no longer a future wish of "wanting".
I used to leave the gym tired, worn out and feeling like a failure because I was out of shape (I would always quit going after those thoughts started coming). I changed the voice in my head so it now says "I am healthier than I was yesterday!" For me this creates a feeling of a mini goal that I have accomplished and it always makes me feel great and motivates me to work out tomorrow to get even healthier! There are no small victories when it comes to your health!
