I’ve tried so many things to lose weight over my lifetime. I’ve always struggled with my weight since I can remember. It wasn’t until I started using the law of attraction exercises to lose weight that I finally started to see results so I wanted to share with you so you can get into your skinny jeans too.
The most powerful law of attraction exercises to lose weight are
- Being as if (not acting as if)
- Noticing your thoughts
- Becoming aware of your feelings
I have some special ways of using these law of attraction methods to lose weight so that they work really well. After watching the movie “The Secret” I was really interested in how I could use it for weight loss, but it left me with so many questions. I came up with these exercises to help me shed the extra pounds and now you can use them too.
Law Of Attraction Exercises To Lose Weight
Being As If
Many people who teach law of attraction say to act as if, but I think there’s a major flaw in that method. If you’re acting, you’re not really that person. You’re just pretending to be for a time.
Being as if means that you’re completely embodying that person that you want to be. Here are some ways you can do that.
Think about and write in your journal what your ideal self would look like, feel like, act like, think.
- What clothes would you wear?
- Where would you go?
- What activities would you do throughout the day?
- How would you talk?
- What thoughts would you have about yourself?
- What thoughts would you have about other people and other things?
- How would you feel about yourself?
- What would you look like?
- How would you carry yourself?
After you’ve really thought about all of these things and developed the idea of what you would be like if you were already the size you want, think about what of those things you can be right now or what actions you can take to move you in the direction of that.
Write down what things you’re committing to that will move you toward and help you embody being that person.
When I did this law of attraction exercise, I realized that if I were already my ideal weight I would be working out every day. My reality was that I was completely out of shape, but I committed to doing a short 10 minute workout every day and working my way up to longer ones.
I also knew that if I were my ideal weight I would be making healthier choices as far as food. I live a vegan lifestyle, but I’d really fallen into the trap of eating a lot of processed foods. So I started to make better choices, choosing whole foods more often.
It seemed so small to just change these two little things, but what a difference it has made in moving me toward my goal!
So decide what you can commit to that will move you in the right direction toward your ideal body and write it out like this:
I am committed to __________ every single day to fill my body with health.
You can choose to just do one thing or as many as you feel you can commit to and actually follow through.
Read your commitment statements every day to remind yourself of why you’re doing those things and keep yourself on track.
Also make sure it’s something you want to do. Don’t choose to do a 30 minute workout every day if you absolutely hate working out. Doing something that doesn’t feel good to you will absolutely not get you results. And you won’t stick with it and make it part of your life if it’s not something that makes you happy.
Noticing Your Thoughts
The next law of attraction exercise to lose weight is paying attention to what you’re thinking about throughout the day. This is a way you can think yourself thin by observing your thoughts and moving to something a little better slowly.
It’s crazy how much we are on autopilot all day and not even realizing the toxic thoughts we’re thinking.
I make crafts and sell them online. I usually spend the whole day working on these and realized that I was thinking about the craziest things when I was crafting. Things from 20 years ago that made me mad were coming into my mind. For 8 to 10 hours a day I was thinking about old stuff from the past that I obviously wasn’t over.
I had to catch myself when I was thinking something negative and think about why I was still dwelling on that. Sometimes I would journal on it to get to the bottom of why I was still feeling negative emotions about it. Other times I could just think through it. I would forgive the person in my heart and forgive myself for holding on to it for so long and judging it.
What are you thinking about all day? Is it negative or positive?
The important thing to remember is that the past is over and only exists in memories. All we really have is this moment right now. Do you want to spend it thinking about something that hurt you in a time that doesn’t even exist anymore?
Another thing you need to know is that things only have meaning because we give them a meaning. You can see if you might be able to look at that situation differently. Maybe it was different than you originally thought.
Realize that people act the way they do because of the things that have influenced their life. Maybe someone hurt them and they were just doing what they know to do. It doesn’t mean that it’s okay or right that they acted that way, but sometimes understanding where someone was coming from can help you feel better about it in your own mind and put it to rest.
When I say notice your thoughts, I don’t mean you need to stop thinking that and try to turn it around in that moment. Be aware what you’re thinking and why you’re thinking it.
Is there a reason you’re thinking that particular thing at that time? Once you become aware of these thoughts and why they’re there, they will slowly start to fade away. You can also choose to think something a little bit better, but don’t try to jump too far. If you’re thinking something super negative, it probably won’t feel right or good to go straight into thinking something ultra positive. See what feels right for you in the moment.
If you enjoy journaling, you can write down what you’ve been thinking so you can see how it changes over time.
Negative Thoughts While Eating Can Keep You From Losing Weight
Another time I caught myself thinking negative thoughts is when I was eating! Ugh! Instead of appreciating the food that I was getting to taste, I was thinking about all sorts of things going on in my day, things that were bothering me, what I needed to do next and I was totally rushing through eating so I could get back to work.
No wonder I was having trouble losing weight! My mind was associating food with these negative thoughts I was thinking the whole time I was eating.
Pay attention to your thoughts and actions when you’re eating. Make sure you feel appreciation and gratitude for how delicious the food is. What do you love about it? What does it taste like? How does it feel on your tongue? What does that particular food do for your body? Say or think words of gratitude while you’re eating instead of letting your mind wander to other things. And take your time!
Becoming Aware Of Your Feelings
Why do you want to lose weight? It’s most likely for a feeling it will give you.
What is the feeling you want to get by losing weight?
Maybe you want to feel more self-confidence or more attractive or to find a new relationship and feel loved. The list of reasons could go on and on.
Write down every way that losing weight would change your life.
Now reading through that list, is there anything that would scare you to actually have that?
For some people they may want to feel attractive, but the idea of getting attention may scare them which then creates a block and keeps them from ever losing weight.
Once you’ve identified the things that could be blocking you from losing weight, you have to let yourself know that it’s safe to have those things.
Write a statement for each one that looks something like this:
It is okay for me to shed the extra pounds and be more attractive. It is safe to get attention for looking beautiful.
If you notice I didn’t say “lose weight” in this statement. Losing something is usually considered negative. Using the term “shedding the extra pounds” will be accepted more easily by your mind and keep it from creating a block.
Read through these statements every day either first thing in the morning or right before bed or both. This will get the idea into your subconscious that is safe for all of these things to come into your life and there’s nothing to fear.
After a few weeks of reading these statements, the blocks will be removed and your weight loss efforts will begin to pay off.
