We become what we think we are.
Our subconscious minds are very powerful and also very dumb. They do not know right or wrong, good or bad. They take what we say and think and bring forward related thoughts and words. And actions. Our minds assume what we think and talk about most is what we want most. Oh and our mind doesn't pay attention to words like 'not'.
I was told once (a long time ago) that our sub conscious mind is like a juke box. We can choose what to play, but it is all there waiting. Every single thing we have seen, heard, felt, tasted or smelt.
As a teenager my sister had anorexia. I was a healthy 55kg (121lb) teenager. She was a tiny 35kg (77lb). I felt FAT. I really believe that part of the reason I became fat is because I felt fat.
In my 20's I got to goal at WW. For many reasons I did not stay there and since then I have started WW many times but not stayed with it to get to goal. Most times when I started I thought about the 'failures'. Self fulfilling? I think so.
I can choose which of memories to 'play'. I can choose the words and thoughts I use.
What outcomes are your thoughts driving you towards?
What self talk will you use today?
I choose to remember the confident teenager, the person to who got to WW goal.
I choose to focus on becoming a slim, confident, fit, healthy, sexy woman.
The rest can get dusty in my memory banks :p
