Affirmations Bring About Positive Results

Affirmations are statements that you can read to yourself to help you achieve goals and help you keep focused on what's important to you.  I have used Affirmations to help me reach weight loss and fitness goals and I wanted to share with you a list of Affirmative statements that you may want to use in your weight loss or fitness journey.  

It's important to read the statements either to yourself or out loud on a daily basis, at least once (more is better) and to put some enthusiasm into what you're reading so you can start believing what you are reading to be true.  Our thoughts manifest into actions, and it's important to stay positive and focused when you have goals.  Trying to keep those negative, self-defeating thoughts out of our heads can be difficult, and this is our best line of defense.  It's okay to have those negative thoughts (we all do), but in order to rise above, we have to acknowledge them, then counteract with positive and productive thoughts and beliefs.  

Affirmations can be used for all types of things, but here I am focusing on weight management and fitness.  Please feel free to copy and adapt these affirmations to suit your situation, and look forward to moving towards achieving your healthy weight and physical fitness.  It's a good idea to print off your list, and post it in a place where you can see it regularly.  I put mine in the bathroom.
