Who do you need to be to achieve your ideal weight?
During my law of attraction training, I learned to ask the question “Who do I need to be?” It was one of the first things I learned and it’s probably one of the most important things I learned too.
The law of attraction teaches us that we need to BE a match for what we want.
As I’m currently trying to achieve my ideal weight, the question I need to ask is “Who do I need to BE to achieve my Ideal Weight?”
Here’s what I came up with.
I need to…
- Be positive about myself and my body NOW!
- Be someone who chooses healthy
- Be someone who gets active every day
- Be someone who enjoys eating healthy
- Be someone who enjoys being active
- Be someone who recognizes real hunger
- Be someone who listens to my body
- Be kind to myself
- Be supportive to others who are working towards the same goal
- Be appreciative of those who have already achieved their ideal weight
- Be someone who says kind and loving things to myself
- Be someone who loves myself
- Be interested in learning about living a healthy lifestyle
In my mind I need to BE Slim, Healthy and Fit right now, then I am a match for attracting that.
I need to visualize myself already being slim, healthy and fit.
I need to see myself being slim, healthy and fit rather than just wanting it.
Ask “Who do I need to BE?” throughout the day, every day!
This is not a question you just ask once though. I am asking this question every day throughout the day.
When I’m feeling tired and don’t feel like doing anything other than lying on the sofa with a bar of chocolate, I ask “Who do I need to be to achieve my ideal weight?”
The answer might be “I need to be someone who makes sure I get enough sleep?” ” I need to eat foods that give me energy rather than drain my energy” “I need to take care of myself and learn to rest when I need it” or it may be “I need to get up and take the dog for a walk”
When you get into the habit of asking yourself questions like this, your body will let you know what you need. The answers may be different from day to day.
I find this such an empowering question and I really hope that you’ll make it a habit to use it in your own life.
Standing with an open food cupboard/fridge?
One great time to use questions like this is when you’re standing in the kitchen raiding the cupboards or the fridge for something to eat. Stop and ask your question “Who do I need to be?”
In this situation, I would also ask “Am I actually hungry or is there something else I need?” For example, it may be that your tired and need to rest, or that you’re bored and want something to do, or sad, upset, angry…
A really useful post to read is How to deal with emotions in a positive way
Questions put you in the present moment and keep you mindful of what you’re doing. So many of our overeating problems, or eating foods which don’t help us to feel healthy and achieve our weight loss goals come from habits. And these habits are things we do on autopilot with very little conscious thought.
Break the habit, be conscious and mindful about what you’re doing, what you’re eating and the choices you make.
So who do you need to BE to achieve your ideal weight?
