Imagine being slim
Can you imagine being slim? I know that when I was obese I sure couldn’t. When I dieted I tried to imagine myself at a healthy ideal weight and all I could see was me at 260 pounds.
Here is an email that I received from Melinda in Biloxi.
I have been overweight all of my life and for most of my life I have been on a diet. Of course, I always put more back on than I lose. I am now almost 200 pounds overweight.
I can’t imagine being slim. Anytime I try, all I can picture is myself at my current weight.
Can you help me?
Reshape yourself to your healthy weight
Oh Melinda – I do so remember this myself. I too was overweight or obese most of my life. And I had mastered yo-yo dieting. The last time I weighed my current weight I was in 4th grade and I was obese as a 4th grader.
As an adult, I had no clue what I would look like at 140 pounds. When I closed my eyes, I pictured myself at 260 pounds.
22 years ago when I used weight loss hypnosis to lose weight – and keep it off – I decided that I wanted an image of an adult male at my height that weighed 140 – 145 pounds.
I looked through magazines and I found an underwear ad with a man that I thought was about my height at my ideal weight. I tore out that image and I took that with a photo of myself to Kinkos. I used the copier to make my face slender and created an image of the underwear model with my slender face.
I put that image on my bathroom mirror (I got a lot of grief from my family!) and made a point of focusing on that image whenever I was in the bathroom.
That picture on the mirror helped me to create an image of my slender self in my mind’s eye.
Today, there are several apps that you can use to change a photo of yourself at your current weight and reshape yourself to your healthy weight.
