I'm reading a book at the moment, "Your Perfect Body - A State Of Mind". There are a lot of affirming things in it. I basically want to write some down. This is mainly for myself, but if it helps anyone else, then it's a bonus.
I will, instead of saying "I want to lose weight", say "I am going to re-invent myself, NO MATTER WHAT."
It won't always be easy, but it will be worth it.
It is always easy to find an excuse as to why you are fat. It is harder to admit you need to fix the problems. But which way will make you thinner? The second.
It is possible to change EVERYTHING in your life. Happiness, weight, self confidence. The first step is believing you CAN change.
If you expect to fail, you probably will.
If you're really ready to change, you will.
When you aren't motivated to exercise, exercise anyway.
By not making a decision to change, you are making the decision to stay the same. Are you okay with that?
Don't weight for the 'right time'. For many people, it never comes.
I WILL have a positive attitude toward the weight losses I look forward to, and will believe that those changes are imminent, and I am working toward them with all my will.
Please note that none of these are designed or written for sufferers of an ED. But I am going to try and, within the bounds of my ED, lose weight permanently and healthier than I have been in the past.
These words are only written to one person - Myself. I do not want anyone else to feel pressured or similar by them, I just find them an inspiration to get well and lose weight, and hopefully become a happier person in my own skin.
