If your goal is to lose weight and you are struggling to get the results you want with ‘only’ diet and exercise, you may benefit from using the power of your mind. Affirmations are a form of positive self-talk that has the power to change your habits. You can use affirmations for many things and achieve amazing results – this includes weight loss. When you use affirmations for weight loss, you are essentially engaging in a form of self-hypnosis for weight loss and the results are outstanding.
How do I know affirmations work for weight loss? Because they worked for me and I’m living proof of what you can achieve when you harness the power of affirmations and use them in your weight loss program.

Affirmations Work Best When you Combo them with other Weight Loss Programs
Let’s be clear – while affirmations are indeed powerful tools that really can help you deliver amazing results by harnessing the power of your mind to control your body, affirmations are not magic. If you eat poorly, don’t exercise, or don’t take care of yourself, then affirmations alone will probably not yield the weight loss results you are looking for.
HOWEVER, if you are using affirmations correctly and you make yourself believe that the affirmations are true, then over time, you will hardwire your mind into forcing your body to follow the path of the affirmations you are speaking to yourself. When this happens, then your mind and body will work together and look for ways to achieve your weight loss goals – you’ll likely find yourself wanting to eat healthier, wanting to put together a weight loss meal plan, wanting to get involved in a weight loss program, maybe even wanting to exercise more. All because you changed the way your mind thinks about your body image. Again I can tell you from first hand experience that this is true because it happened to me.
While I don’t count calories, use diet pills, or use weight loss calculators in my personal program, I can tell you that when I use affirmations for weight loss and I speak them to myself in the morning, they are particularly effective at helping me make a mind-body connection that keeps me on the right path during the way for my weight loss goals. In addition to affirmations I also use intermittent fasting and regular workouts, however I pretty much still eat what I want every day (and that includes chicken wings, beer, and BBQ on weekends!)
But my weight loss success all starts with affirmations because affirmations make me focus on eating right, help me stick to my intermittent fasting routine, encourage me to work out more often, and overall help me achieve positive results in my weight loss program.
Give them a try and see if they can do the same for you too.
