I saw that one a few weeks ago - it was SO powerful! Really hard to believe that body language can make that much difference but Wow! I think I'll watch it again. (and yes, keep kleenex nearby!)

Along with our motivational verbal and written mantras, we need to pay attention to our less obvious non-verbal language. Turns out, we can "fake it until we make it" and here's how:

I watched a TED Talk today that really opened my eyes as to how important our body language is, and how it has very real physiological impact on our hormones (Testosterone and Cortisol)

I bet your eyebrows are going up right now, thinking, "Those are some pretty powerful weight loss hormones..."

The funny thing is, this TED Talk had NOTHING to do with weight loss, but it has everything to do with success and giving us some more tools to reach our goals. So if you want to put another tool into your bag of tricks, watch this TED Talk.

And I dare you not to cry (or at least tear up significantly!) at the end when Amy Cuddy describes what "Faking it Until you Make It " did for her.

Here is the link:

I posted a few other thoughts on my blog, "I Double Dog Dare You" regarding how this concept might help you lose weight. See the blog if you want a few more observations.

p.s. Sorry if this appears in your "in" box more than once. I've posted it across multiple Teams because I think the message is that important.
