Your thoughts are powerful. They affect your emotions and drive your actions. Negative thoughts can be like a cage, locking you into bad habits. To escape, you need to hear these thoughts and learn to challenge them. Thinking positively is an important part of the weight loss process, because it allows you to be honest with yourself so you can build healthier habits.
Stopping negative thoughts can be challenging because you may have developed a habit of thinking them. When your go-to thought is a negative one, it can be hard to even hear yourself say them. The first step toward more positive thinking is to start to listen to what you’re saying to yourself. Negative thoughts can be ideas like worst-case scenarios, regrets, or “what ifs.”
Do any of these sound familiar?
These thoughts aren’t facts. They’re just thoughts. And they’re not helping you lose weight. In fact, negative thoughts can hold you back. Become your own best friend by learning to talk back to those thoughts. Be a voice of kindness, acceptance, and forgiveness. Try replacing your negative thought with a positive thought.
