Positive Imaging For Weight Loss

Visualization can play an​ important part in​ losing weight and maintaining a​ healthy lifestyle that keeps it​ off. Losing weight can be difficult for many people who use fad diets and pills to​ achieve their weight loss goals without letting their mind help in​ the​ process.

Visualization is​ a​ powerful technique that can help you make lasting lifestyle changes. Just by "day dreaming",​ you can significantly improve your chances in​ achieving your goals.

Visualization is​ a​ great weight loss tool and its as​ simple as​ visualizing your body as​ you want your body to​ look like. This mental image of​ yourself is​ then transferred to​ your subconscious mind,​ which in​ turn starts to​ work on​ your body,​ shaping it​ in​ accordance with your mental image thus reducing your weight.

This means that if​ you program your subconscious with a​ mental image of​ yourself as​ a​ slimmer person,​ through persistence your mind will accept this and aid your body to​ conform to​ this mental image.

Once your mind is​ programmed with the​ proper mental images,​ it​ will start to​ work in​ assisting you to​ losing weight. I can’t stress enough how important it​ is​ for you to​ believe in​ your visualization goals. You have to​ let go of​ past dieting failures and refuse to​ entertain any negative images that come into your mind.

If you can visualize your body at​ its perfect weight and proportions,​ the​ subconscious mind will work to​ make it​ become a​ reality. it​ will then begin to​ positively reinforce your body into aiding the​ metabolism and eating habits. Programming your mind into believing that you can lose weight,​ and to​ visualize yourself at​ your ideal weight is​ of​ the​ greatest importance.

Try to​ think of​ a​ different image of​ yourself,​ then let your subconscious do the​ work for you. if​ you think of​ your own body fat and being out of​ shape all the​ time,​ then the​ subconscious mind will find ways to​ make it​ so.

The subconscious looks after all of​ all your vital functions,​ it​ is​ the​ cause of​ all your good and bad habits,​ and also regulates muscle (the muscles are controlled by the​ subconscious) and body-fat composition on​ the​ body,​ and the​ latter is​ the​ one we​ are most interested in.

So please try to​ visualize your body as​ lean as​ you would like,​ and your mind will work on​ that image. the​ mind can be a​ great partner in​ losing weight.

Getting Rid of​ Bad Nutritional Habits

A bad habit is​ like second nature and is​ acquired over a​ long period of​ time. Bad habits are programmed into the​ subconscious and “will power” alone will not get rid of​ it. Many try using all sorts of​ different ways to​ break it​ but without success.

Obesity is​ the​ result of​ bad nutritional habits and some of​ the​ causes are boredom,​ stress,​ tension and different complexes. Food becomes the​ substitution for these causes and before too long,​ obesity sets in. Most people become concerned that they’re obese,​ eat more and a​ vicious cycle is​ established.

The only way for lasting permanent weight loss is​ to​ break these bad habits and replace them with positive new ones,​ and the​ only way to​ do this is​ with visualization. Visualization puts you in​ charge of​ your subconscious where all these bad programs are stored.

All the​ will power in​ the​ world is​ not going to​ break these bad habits unless one has the​ help of​ their subconscious.


Relaxation the​ best way to​ reach the​ sub-conscious and will slow down the​ mind,​ turn off the​ exterior world so as​ to​ tune in​ to​ one’s inner self. the​ best times for these sessions are in​ the​ morning and late at​ night right,​ just before going to​ sleep.

Try performing two sessions,​ one in​ the​ afternoon (primary) and the​ other before going to​ sleep (secondary) but once a​ day is​ quite sufficient. Sessions usually last 20 minutes,​ which isn’t time consuming especially when taking in​ the​ benefits received.

It has been stated that one of​ these sessions is​ equivalent to​ 2 hours of​ deep sleep and upon waking you will feel revitalized and full of​ energy. Believe me instead of​ worrying about time constraints; you will be looking forward to​ the​ next session.

When you begin your relaxation sessions,​ make sure you won’t be disturbed - lock the​ door,​ take the​ phone off the​ hook and loosen all clothing. Now find a​ comfortable position,​ whether it​ is​ lying down or​ sitting in​ a​ comfortable chair.

Sitting may be preferable as​ you may fall asleep if​ you become too comfortable. You want to​ be conscious and not asleep in​ order to​ tap into your sub-conscious mind.

Try to​ exhale all the​ air from your lungs completely and then breathing in​ through the​ nose. Take ten seconds to​ fill the​ lungs with air (not to​ capacity,​ but comfortable) hold for ten seconds and then exhale slowly through the​ nose for another ten seconds.

Each one of​ these breathing cycles should last for 30 seconds,​ complete five cycles and after each cycle you will be feeling more and more relaxed.

If you are sitting,​ open your eyes and look straight ahead. if​ you are lying down,​ open your eyes and stare at​ the​ ceiling. After a​ few minutes,​ slowly close your eyes.

Having reaching this calm relaxed state start your visualizations. Put together images that power your emotions. Make them alive and colourful. Make the​ scenes as​ real as​ possible and imagine yourself as​ slim and toned the​ way you will look after successful weight loss.

Picture yourself ten weeks from now on​ the​ beach,​ walking briskly and confidently to​ your favourite spot,​ your breathing is​ normal and relaxed. You smile to​ yourself; you could keep walking like this for miles without feeling fatigued.

You lay your towel out and begin to​ take your clothes off revealing a​ firm,​ toned,​ well conditioned body. You have just bought a​ brand new swimming suit which just weeks before would have been lying in​ your closet waiting to​ be used.

Glancing around you notice the​ beach is​ busy,​ you catch the​ eye of​ someone of​ the​ opposite sex,​ they smile at​ you and you smile back. You walk confidently to​ the​ water and swim a​ couple of​ hundred yards with no problem or​ fatigue.

Or try this:

Visualize your family and friends complimenting you about how good your body looks and how slim you look. Try to​ view the​ scene as​ it​ is​ happening this instant - in​ the​ present,​ not in​ the​ future.

Using these visualizations you can construct in​ your mind any scene that desire. See yourself exercising,​ socializing,​ in​ the​ company of​ friends. Try and hear people complimenting you about your slim new body,​ and watch their admiring glances. Make the​ mental image as​ real as​ possible.

 Remember set a​ goal for your ideal weight

 You must want to​ lose weight

 Visualize yourself at​ your ideal weight

 Use positive images at​ every opportunity

Practice these sessions on​ a​ daily basis and over a​ period of​ ten weeks you’ll be on​ your way to​ become more fulfilled,​ happier and leaner
