Help me Get Back to Being Motivated to Lose Weight

"Help me! When I was losing the weight I felt so good about my exercise and weight loss I actually considered going into the health field. I want to get that back! Any help would be greatly appreciated."

Wanting to get back to a time when you were motivated to lose weight is easy with an NLP process called Anchoring. Daydream now about how it felt back then. Jot down notes if you can. How did it feel overall? Is there anywhere on your body you felt it strongly? What kind of feeling was it? Strong, mild, fluttery, tingling? What? Do everything you can to recreate exactly how it was.

Ask yourself: How were you sitting or standing? How did you carry yourself?

What did you hear from others? Compliments? Encouragement?

Do you remember anything negative? Write it down.

Do you recall what you saw? Were you in a certain place? Was the sky a certain color, etc. Get every detail you can as vividly as possible.

You considered going into the health field? What type of work, exactly?

Write down every detail, and when you really feel it, just like you felt it back then, reach down and squeeze your knee.

That's creating an anchor. Then, try again, all the same steps as above, ask yourself the same questions and then this time, remembering as intensely as you can, squeeze your knee again. It may sound silly but it really works.

How to Test if your Weight Loss Anchor is Working

To test if it's working, stand up, shake it off - think of the last movie you saw (think of anything else, just to get your mind clear). Get all the thoughts out of your mind, and when your mind is a blank, sit down, and squeeze your knee. Your thoughts will
probably go to the good feelings, and memories of what it felt like when you were getting in shape that time.

That's how you "set an anchor."

Anchors like this are how you switch thoughts from negative to positive in the blink of an eye. If you are feeling bad, you just say, "Hey, this isn't right," reach down and squeeze your knee, and whoosh, you have those memories again.

The memories are something that can help put those feelings front and center for you again, and that's what you want, to get back those feelings. Once you have those feelings, even if just a bit, you'll become motivated to do what it takes to produce those feelings more and more, and maybe even pursue that a career in a health field.



The above is an example of what type of message I sent in the Daily Bites; where you can learn how to use EFT for these and other issues that may be hampering your weight loss efforts. Read my weight loss articles - you'll find lots of ideas and suggestions there too
