I have a wait problem. I hate to wait. When I want something, I want it NOW.
My wait problem also applies to my need to lose weight problem.
When I want to lose weight, I want to lose it NOW.
I’ve discovered a method which speedily quickens up results — and I’d love to share it with you!
I’ve created A NEW VOCABULARY MENU — where I have changed the words I allow to enter and exit my mouth. In other words…I’m now firstly on a special Word Diet – beginning with banning the word “diet” — because if you really want to get slim and healthier, you’re not “on” a diet — which implies going “off” the diet at some point. In fact, the word diet has a lot of negative associations. I hear that word and think: “LOTS OF PAIN AHEAD!”
So I renamed the healthier eating I’m doing as “DO IT PROGRAM” — not a diet program — because I’m really “doing it” — and this new vocabulary feels more fun and inspiring!
Another word on MY NEW VOCABULARY MENU: “APPRECI-EAT.” This word is all about slowing down the eating and thereby tasting food more – so you’ll want to eat less. Studies show that if you eat more slowly, you allow your body the needed time to signal to your brain that you are full — which is usually 20 minutes. So I no longer eat meals and snacks – I appreciEAT them!
More words on MY NEW VOCABULARY MENU: “FORWARD” and “BACKWARD.” Every food one chooses to eat either moves you forward to your dream weight – or backwards to gaining more weight. So when I look at a food I ask myself: “Is this a forward food – or a backward food?”
More words from MY NEW VOCABULARY MENU: “THE OLD ME” and “THE NEW ME.” All your actions come from your identity. If you think: “I always overeat late at night.” Guess what? You do. If you think: “I’m the type of person who can resist chocolate — the new me is great at resisting it — the new me eats forward foods — the old me ate backward foods!” Guess what? The new you will be very much going forwards to fab – instead of backwards to flab!
Another word on MY NEW VOCABULARY MENU: “WALLPOWER!” To hell with ordinary mere mortal willpower. When you have WALLPOWER, nothing will be able to break through your wall of commitment!
A new sentence on MY NEW VOCABULARY MENU: “INCREASING MY APPETITE FOR LIFE.” If you want to be a slim, healthy person it’s essential you swap the pleasure of food with life’s multitudinous other delights.
FACT: If you’re presently overweight, it’s because you’re not being hungry enough about pursuing life’s other abundant pleasures – and are seeing mostly the pleasure of food.
FACT: If you want to lose weight you must make sure your appetite for life is far bigger than your appetite for mere food.
So… swap chips and salsa for salsa class! Stop eating! Start painting! Recognize the joy of taking photos lasts longer than the joy of ice cream!
