Sometimes, when I’m feeling uninspired, I look up a few quotes and re-kindle the inspiration. Today, I was at a loss for what to write about, so I looked up some “Inspirational Weight Loss Quotes” and look what I found:

“You must begin to think of yourself as becoming the person you want to be.”
David Viscott

This is kind of like keeping your eyes on the prize. Keep in mind your goal, feel and experience your goal as if it already exists and the universe will make sure it comes to you. In the case of weight loss, focus on your goal weight. See yourself in your skinny clothes. Feel yourself filled with energy.

“You’ve got to say, I think that if I keep working at this and want it badly enough I can have it. It’s called perseverance.”
Lee Iacocca

When you’ve got a lot of weight to lose, like I have, you have to persevere … remaining firm in your belief that you can do this. There will be times when things seem to slow down, but they’ll pick up again. The body does that sort of thing as it adjusts to its new set point.

“Habit is habit and not to be flung out of the window by any man, but coaxed downstairs a step at a time.”
Mark Twain

Negative thinking, including the negative thoughts you have about your body, is a habit like all others. You have to focus on positive thoughts about your body. Keep coming back to them over and over until thinking positively about your body overrides your once bad habit.

“If you don’t do what’s best for your body, you’re the one who comes up on the short end.”
Julius Erving

I know it sounds trite, but your body really is your temple. It is what you live in day after day. The better you treat it … the better you take care of it … the better quality of life that it will give you in return.

“Rule your mind or it will rule you.”
Horace

This what is at the heart of the I Create My Body program. You are re-programming your mind so that it supports you rather than undermines you. Become the master of your life … change your mind, change your body, change your life.
