Are you battling a weight problem?
Before you ever walk into the kitchen and open the refrigerator door, you have already begun to talk to yourself about eating.
If you are serious, you will have to challenge some of those subconscious attitudes about food.
When you hear your mind saying, ‘I just have to have a snack or I’ll die,’ you have to say, ‘No, I’m not going to die. In fact, I will be healthier if I don’t have a snack.’
Talk back to your feelings.
We put far too much emphasis on our feelings.
We think everything has to feel good or it’s not worthwhile.
We say things like, ‘I don’t feel like studying…I don’t feel like working…I don’t feel like going to the gym.’ Or, ‘I feel like having another drink…I feel like sleeping until noon.’ Don’t give your feelings so much authority.
Feelings are highly unreliable; if you allow them, they will control and manipulate you.
