Brainwashing Quik
(Page 3 of 3)

One Desirable Glitch (though it won't seem desirable)- While you are slowly ramping up your moderate exercise program (are you doing this yet?), your body is converting fat tissues to muscle tissues, which weigh more. Thus, there may be a week or two where you are not losing weight even though you know you are eating less. You might even gain 1-2 pounds. Just think of how many extra calories those new muscles will be burning 24 hours a day. That will happen!!!

Week 3. Have Week2's affirmations been easy? If so, then add another (but no more than 2 VIP affirmations at any one time) or you might for the first time add 5-10 lesser affirmations, ones that you voice 10X twice daily. If week2 has been difficult, wait a week or two or three before adding anything more. Continue making a few choices to eat less and/or exercise more but don't try for more than a pound a week weight loss. Most people find that a combination of increased exercising and decreased calorie intake is the best way. Your current affirmation(s) will lead you to the most effective choices for YOU.

Weeks 4+. Continue as in Week 3. Eventually you will reach your final goal weight.

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).

Ways to Improve Your Chances for Weight Loss
The most effective way to improve your chances is to increase your abilities to process the issues that arise. Use all the self help tools you know and use them often: things such as journaling, focusing, dream recall/dramatizing, etc. Support groups often work well as does therapy. [If in therapy, ask your therapist if it's OK to voice the affirmation "I weigh ___ pounds" (your goal weight) 400-500 times in the 24 hours before every session; then let the session happen as it needs to, perhaps without any talk of weight loss. This will make your therapy LEAN in the direction of resolving your weight loss issues.]

Reminder- when your glitches arise (and they will) it is helpful to ALREADY have read all the below pages. You will be less likely to throw in the towel at your first speed bump.
