3 Mindset Hacks For Weight Loss

Hey Lovely

This week I wanted to share with you 3 Mindset Hacks that you must implement if you truly want to lose weight permanently and end that battle with food.

When I was struggling with my weight and emotional eating I thought the only way to succeed and to shift the kilos was to exercise excessively, restrict my food and count my calories. I also thought that if I did ever manage to get to my goal then I’d have to consistently work at it forever.

I thought for the rest of my life I’d have to think about what I can and can’t eat, should and shouldn’t eat, stress over whether I’d been to the gym that day, I thought that’s how my life was going to be. Sound familiar?

Little did I know at the time that it’s absolutely possible to live a life free of the battle with food and your weight. You deserve to live a life where choosing what to wear in the morning isn’t a huge ordeal or the thought of going underwear shopping doesn’t make you want to run for the hills. You deserve to be free of this.

These 3 Mindset Hacks hold the key to your freedom and they work for anything not just emotional eating and weight loss, anything in your life!

#1. Change The Way You Think

Your thoughts are creating everything in your life, EVERYTHING. I cannot emphasise this enough. Every thought you have has an impact on your experiences and your reality.

Your thoughts create your beliefs, that create your feelings, that create your actions, that create your reality. The chain begins with your thoughts. And great news, your thoughts are something you have the ability to take control of, I mean you’re there all day long alone with them in your mind, so you have every opportunity to get on top of this!

Start paying attention to your internal world. What thoughts are you running on repeat every day? Are you caught up in the negatives, everything you don’t want, the problems and emotions you’re experiencing? Do you run past events around your mind? Do you get caught up in emotions that haven’t been dealt with properly? Or do you focus on what you WANT and the goals you want to achieve?

What you think about is what you bring about. So the more you focus on the problem the more it will stick around.

For example, if your head is filled with how much you hate your body, how mad you are that you can’t fit into that little red dress anymore and how frustrated you are for eating that chocolate bar, you’ll be consumed by it and it will effect everything. And it’s not a nice place to be is it? When your mind is filled with this negativity so will be your life. You’ll attract more of that to you.

It’s time to make space for the positives in your mind and in your life. If you’re currently struggling to lose weight, get a handle on your relationship with food, then I can guarantee your thoughts are out of alignment with the reality that you want to create, they’ll be keeping you stuck.

Pay attention to your thoughts and ask yourself how you can be kinder to yourself?

When you catch yourself focused on negatives, stressing, worrying, feeling anxious, ask yourself how can I find the love in this situation and move on?

Treat yourself like you would a best friend, speak to yourself kindly, love you. The more you do this the quicker things will start to shift in your reality!

#2. Release Your Emotions

Your emotions are having a huge impact on everything in your life. They keep you weighed down, emotionally, mentally and also physically.

I’m yet to meet a woman who is carrying physical weight who isn’t carrying emotional weight. The emotion has to show up somewhere, maybe on your hips, tummy, legs, wherever that annoying spot is for you, but it’s there for a reason. Your body is trying to show you something, a warning sign, ‘hey something isn’t right here, are you going to look at the root of the problem or just keep ignoring it?’

The more you ignore it or try to treat the problem with diets and restricting your food (completely missing the point) the more you reinforce the real problem and allow it to keep playing out.

Emotion is also the driving force behind emotional eating. It’s so easy to focus on food being the problem when you think about emotional eating, however emotion is the real problem. Until the emotion is resolved, you’ll continue to want the food and it will continue to fire off those urges you know as cravings.

When you can master your emotions you’ll break free not only from the emotional eating trap but your body will come out of survival mode allowing you to lose weight. When you’re under emotional stress it puts your body into survival mode and you produce hormones and chemicals that stop you breaking down fat, I know right!?

So take a few steps daily that will help you to start releasing emotion, meditate, journal, use mantras, get outside in nature, walk, laugh, sing, draw, paint, whatever lights you up.

#3 Take Control Of Your Beliefs

Your beliefs are powerful. If you believe on any level, even just a little bit that you’ll never be slim, then you won’t.

I always say your beliefs are shaping everything in your life, even YOU! And it’s so true. Everything you do, or don’t do, everything you succeed at or don’t comes down to your beliefs and the story of who you think you are.

Everyone has a story that’s running, ‘I’m not good enough’ ‘I can’t do it’ ‘I’m the bigger sister and always will be’ these are just beliefs, thoughts and perceptions that have been passed down to you usually from parents, grandparents, teachers, or even good old Ethel down the road. Passing comments and past events stick with you, they get written into your story and form who you think you are, but it’s not true, they can be changed.

For example as a child being told ‘you’re just big boned’ or ‘you have to watch watch you eat because you’ve got one of those figures’ this all has an effect. Even if you think you’ve got it under control consciously, unconsciously your mind could have absorbed this information and written it into your neuropathways forming the very core of your personality.

The great thing is you can start right now to make a change by paying attention to what beliefs are running the show, this links right back to step #1, by tracking your thoughts. Your thoughts are the gateway to your beliefs so pay attention.

The fist step of any change is awareness so when a belief arises, check in with it. Is it yours or someone else? Do you want to believe it or not? If not, choose to let it go.

Close your eyes, breathe deeply and say I choose to let this go now. Repeat as often as needed and until you feel a shift.

If you can dedicate some time and energy to these 3 steps you will not only start to experience shifts in your emotional eating habits, the way you think about yourself and your weight loss success, but you’ll start to feel an overwhelming sense or empowerment, control and connection to love.
