Believe it or not, one of the best things you can do for your whole food success is learn to let go. This isn’t just about letting go of the old foods that you eat, it isn’t even about letting go of old habits. While both of these things are important and both of them will play a role in your overall success, there is one thing that you need to do that is more important than all of that, and this one thing can sabotage your weight loss before it even begins, if you aren’t careful.
Before you do anything, before you even begin thinking about your goals or trying out healthy recipes. You need to get right with yourself. That’s not to mean that there is anything wrong with you or the way live your life, and it certainly doesn’t mean that you have done something to deserve to be unhappy with your current weight loss situation. Instead, getting right with yourself means that you need to take a real look at the way that you treat yourself and you need to let go of the things that you have done in the past that bother you.
For instance, so many people say that they ‘fall off the wagon’ in terms of healthy eating when the holiday hits. The stress of holiday pressure and the delicious foods that are so easily accessible make for a bad combination when one is trying to stay healthy, and many times this temptation makes it nearly impossible to stick to a healthy eating path.
But the good news is that last year is over, and that means that the food choices you made no longer matter. Let’s say that your holiday eating resulted in a 5 pound weight gain. It would be very easy to be frustrated with yourself every time you look in the mirror. But what if you were able to forgive yourself for last year? What if you were able to look at that weight gain and make the decision to love yourself anyway? Make no mistake, the way we talk to ourselves is critical in our whole food journeys.
An easy way to start training your brain to speak kindly to yourself is by using affirmations. While it might seem silly at first to talk to yourself, affirmations are a really great way to reconnect with yourself and show yourself some self love. Over time, you will find that the words you speak become easier for you to believe.
You can start today, simply think about the things that make you upset about your whole foods journey as well as the things that you don’t like about yourself when it comes to your weight loss goals. Write these things down and then write down the opposite of these things. For instance, if you said “I hate how fat I am”, you could write “I love the way my body looks”. Say these things to yourself multiple times every day for a month and you will start to see results.
