I read articles that state all I have to do is believe something to be true and it will be so. I don't think so! I can believe all day long that I am 5' 8" and it won't change my stature. So, in my mind, it does no good to believe that I weigh 110 pounds. I don't.
I've tried telling myself things that aren't true now, but could be like:
*I like vegetables.
*I work out regularly.
*I am a healthy weight.
That still leads to frustration on my part. I do my best to implement changes that will make those statements true, but I never see it through. I don't see results quickly enough or some life event throws me off course. I don't have to lose 10 pounds a day to be happy. I'd be thrilled with any amount of progress. I'm just not seeing it.
I want to be positive. I want to believe the best about me in all areas, not just weight loss. I'm not any better at positive messages than I am at permanent weight loss.
What to do? What to do?
