Healing all aspects of ourselves is necessary to find our ideal weight. We need to heal with natural food, regular exercise, a mindful presence, and the spiritual nourishment of self-compassion.
Many of us eat until we feel full for all the wrong reasons, seeking fulfillment through food by eating when we are bored or emotional. Eating for any other reason than the need for nourishment has created a well-worn path of bad habits.
Here's my proposition. If you have an abundant supply of self-fulfillment through self-love, a creative outlet, a life full of purpose and spiritual nourishment, then you are already "full," and satisfaction through food becomes less important. In this scenario, we are fulfilled by an inner sense of security and calm, so we simply eat for fuel and nourishment.
Real change begins in the mind, and it begins with a thought. Reprogramming the mind by replacing negative thinking that created the bad health habits in the first place is key, and it is a practical way to apply Eckhart Tolle’s wise words, "Get the inside right and the outside will fall into place."
Here are 99 affirmations that can help with mindful weight loss. Use one of them, some of them, or all of them!
