How successful you will be with weight loss (or anything) is inexorably tied directly to the words and beliefs about yourself that you have stored in your subconscious mind.
Whatever you put into your mind, in one way or another, is what you will get back out.
Whatever thoughts you programmed into your brain, or have allowed others to program into you, are affecting, directing, or controlling everything about you.
The subconscious mind is a sponge; it will believe anything you tell it - whether it's true or not - if you tell it OFTEN enough and strongly enough. That part of your brain makes no moral judgments; it simply accepts what you tell it.
Self-talk is a way to override our past negative programming by erasing or replacing it with conscious, new positive directions.
And here's the thing ...
It makes no difference whether you believe this self talk or not. Your subconscious mind doesn't care. It will simply act on the new information you are unconsciously programming.
The human brain just says: "Give me the directions, the commands, the picture, the schedule, and the results you want. Then I will do it for you."
Let's start programming you for incredible success from the inside out!
