Brainwashing Quik
(Page 2 of 3)

Get your Fantasies Going! Develop very specific fantasies about all the ways you intend to enjoy your new slender body. New clothes? Plan your shopping now, pretend trying on the new clothes, including that sexy swimsuit. How about your enjoyment of your vigorous body? Dancing? Great sex? Running? Swimming? Long Hikes? Remember: you get what you concentrate on- if you have no fantasies going, then you are not concentrating that much, and weight loss is much less likely to manifest for you or will take much longer.

Understand that it usually takes about three weeks for a behavior change to really get adopted by your body/mind. Therefore, affirmations that concern a particular behavior must be spoken for three weeks minimum.

The Quik Program Itself:
Week 1. Just use the VIP affirmation (400-500X daily - insert your own goal weight) "I weigh ____ pounds and notice my eating behaviors." You will get all sorts of ideas come to mind during this week about the ways you use food, your patterns, your food impulses. Pay attention to them all. During this week start making a few EASY choices to eat less and exercise more. Did you "forget" your affirmations one day? If so, you are resisting and will need to make a more concerted effort with your affirmations, reduce your number of small behavior changes, or switch to Brainwashing Lite.

Reminder: You really need to know about the speed bumps ahead, the ins and outs of affirmations, why diets fail, etc- in short the contents of ALL the links on this site- more than 30 pages the last time I counted. Read them all before you start this program. Otherwise you will be tempted to quit at the first speed bump, claiming "this program doesn't work."

Week 2. After the first week, you may choose to substitute a different ending to the first week's affirmation; for example "I weigh ____ pounds and this is what I look like" (while looking at a photo of slender you/someone-else). If the first week went well, you might choose to add a second VIP affirmation or select a few lesser affirmations, perhaps 5-10, that you voice 10X twice daily. Continue making choices to eat less and/or exercise more. Your affirmation(s) will be PUSHING you to make some sensible changes.

Affirmations Getting Stale after several weeks? This is normal. Vary them, but usually keep the same end goals; i.e. if "I love my body" is getting stale, then you might substitute "I love my sexy body" (picturing yourself at your final goal weight).
