Imagine yourself walking inside an abandoned, empty, old room. What would you do inside that room? Now, imagine walking inside a cozy living room with a couch, thick blanket, and beautiful decorations. Will you still do what you thought of on the first room? I’m pretty sure you imagined yourself doing different activities inside these rooms. Even if you’re the same person with the same energy level and emotional state when you walk in your actions would still be different. This is a clear example of how our environment affects our actions. Now our goal is to figure out how to make the environment more suited for our health and lifestyle goals.
There are a couple of different ways on how we can do it. I will discuss 4 ways that could help you build healthy habits for weight loss. Then, we will get to implementing it.
I get it, you hear “simple and easy” solutions lose weight that have nothing to do with God, but those programs have a huge failure rate. Those programs are not trying to make you healthy and give you freedom. A lot of times they are just trying to make money and keep you longing for more pushing the carrot out a little further for to keep their clients buying…
I know it can be difficult to overcome emotional eating which is why I put together my top ways to stop emotional eating for you. these strategies work! They have helped my clients (and myself) eliminate emotional eating by being better equip to process and handle with emotions.
There is a big problem with how people are told to approach dieting and weight loss. I mean look at the statistics, the BEST, most promising statistic I have seen is a 30% success rate. (This is with a really low bar of “success” too.)
If a teacher had 70% of students FAIL saying they have a “simple, easy and effective method,” do you think they would have a job? OR at least be trained on how to teach a different method?
I really hope not…
I hope you are starting to understand that you are not the problem it is the method or the diet. Most typical approaches to weight loss do not work long-term for the MAJORITY of people. You are not the issue it is the method.
So often what people talk about is only a small glimpse of the bigger health picture. Our mindset of losing weight is too narrow just looking at what we eat and how much we move as if nothing else matters...
Being consistent involves a lot more than just trying harder. It is a lot deeper than what most people talk about. Trust me, I read up on what there people are saying often, they were not talking about what I am going to share with you.
On your weight loss journey you want to make sure that your mindset and thoughts are rooted and based in God’s True Word.
A lot of times women have untrue negative self talk that they speak over themselves, It is really important to remember this Proverb, “The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” (Proverbs 18:21)
Being diligent about the words that you say over yourself is really important. The words that you say have a big influence and when you draw attention to them you realize how negative and destructive those words can be. I encourage you to not only bring your attention to your thoughts, but to also replace them with these powerful affirmations based off of God’s Word
