Tomorrow starts our 28-day Challenge and before we begin I want you share with you what I think is THE MOST IMPORTANT thing to remember on our journey and THE KEY to long term health and wellness. This was written by Catherine L. Taylor, weight loss/life coach and meditation teacher who specializes in emotional eating recovery and permanent weight loss through mind/body transformation. You can read more about her work and find her meditations for weight loss on www.secretsofaweightlossmaster.com. She writes:
Weight Loss Begins In The Mind
Self love paves the way for permanent weight loss. Before you attempt to lose weight, get your mind in the right frame of mind. Your body will soon follow. Most of us do this backwards. We tell ourselves that we will feel better about ourselves after we lose the weight. It doesn’t work that way.
You can only treat your body as well as you feel inside. Your beliefs and feelings act as a self fulfilling prophecy. The most courageous and powerful decision you can make is to decide to love yourself and be happy right now. All that you are seeking will come from this.
The foundation of all self care is self-love and acceptance. You wouldn’t build a house on quicksand would you? Losing weight with the proper foundation and beliefs will guarantee your success. When you build your body with love the results will last.
Feel the love…lose the weight!
So give yourself a hug, love where you are at right now, and get excited for the adventure ahead! Woot! Woot!
