I did it. I caught sight of my reflection as I was doing star jumps in the bathroom last night (I know it’s weird) and I thought, “I’m so fat!!!”
Gasp, shock, horror!!! I’m super positive right, I’m a life coach, I teach people how to be positive and get rid of the crappy self-talk and all that, so what was I doing saying something like that to myself?
The reality is as damaging as I know it is, I’m still only human and it happens. Not so often as it used to but occasionally it happens.
The trick is to spot any negative self-talk like “I’m so fat!” and quickly swap it for something more positive, something better feeling.
So I wanted to share with you today what happened after I said “I’m so FAT!”
I caught myself saying it, stopped, turned to actually look at myself properly.
Then I started improving my thoughts.
“I’m not as fat as I used to be”
“I’ve clocked up over 10,000 steps today and I’m still in the bathroom doing star jumps”
“I’m making positive changes so that I’m living a healthier and more active lifestyle”
“I’m doing okay”
“In fact, I’m doing great”
“I’m well on my way to achieving my ideal weight goal.”
I finished off looking at myself in the bathroom mirror and saying “I Love you, you’re doing great, I really love you”
This felt so much more positive and I was able to go to bed feeling great about myself, about my body about my ideal weight journey.
Don’t beat yourself up if you catch yourself saying something negative to yourself, just swap it super quick
Keep it positive – Be your own best friend
Negative self-talk is a major trait for people who are struggling with their weight. It’s a negative habit that we’ve got into. So, from this moment on, I really want you to be aware of what you say to yourself. When you spot yourself speaking negatively to yourself, just stop, take a deep breath and replace it with something positive.
You can do this. Be your own best friend.
