Do you want some ways to think yourself thin? Do you ever have those days when you are having lunch or dinner and give in to overeating, thinking, "Oh, who gives a shit?" University of Toledo psychology professor Janet Polivy calls it the "what the hell" effect and says it causes people to devour so much food that they feel they will never get back on track. The following are tips to change your mind and some ways to think yourself thin.
1. Think of Yourself as Already Thin
One of the best ways to think yourself thin is to think you're already there. Use a photo visualizer. Upload a photo of yourself to see what you would look like if you do lose weight. This is a SUPER thought motivator. Check out this visualizer tool: www0.modiface.com
2. Do Not Put Getting in Shape off until Summer!
Think to yourself that by eating more now, you are creating a lot of extra work for yourself when spring rolls around!
3. Think to Yourself That You Can do Anything
People lose weight every day! There is no reason why you cannot!
4. Think to Yourself That You Have to Have Patience!
It took a while to put on, right? Well, it is going to take a while to take off!
5. Think to Yourself That You Are Worth It
Do not put yourself down!
6. Think to Yourself That You Can Be Healthy
You can afford healthy food! Clip coupons and shop grocery sales! Make up a list before you go! There are many healthy grocery lists that you can look up online and print-out, such as: greatist.com
7. Think to Yourself That You Can Educate Yourself
Buy online or from a bookstore any of these super books... (you'll never be bored!) goodreads.com
8. Tell Yourself That You do Not Have to Compete
Instead, make weight loss friends who want to cheer you on and you do the same for them. Personally, I am a member of sparkpeople.com where I have SparkFriends, where we have fun, fitness and fellowship for free!
If dieting and exercise do not seem to be doing it for you, why not use your thinking? Change the sabotaging thoughts---change your weight! You're going to look good, girl!
