How To Silence Your Inner Critic And Lose Weight

How To Silence Your Inner Critic And Lose Weight

Whether you say it out loud or not, we all have that inner critic that brings you down and it’s like a tape on repeat in your head. Over and over it goes – I have flabby arms, I am so fat, I am ugly and unattractive, she is so skinny, I am a failure. Yet you do everything you can to lose weight and you never do, you try all the fad diets, all the juice diets and you never see any deeply satisfying results. All you see and feel is more pain in your failure. You consistently hit repeat on your Mind Tape.

Well, I would like to share the solution to this and as a result lose weight easily and effortlessly.

Your inner critic is actually your ego. And if you’re a lady, then I like to call it your shego! Your ego pipes up anytime you want to make a change – weight loss, getting rid of your tummy fat, making a change in your career – and tells you that you CANNOT do it. It sounds something like this – “you can’t do that, it hasn’t worked before why would it work now, my body doesn’t shift fat as easily as hers, I’m too busy, I’ll start next week.”

This is all self-sabotage, because your ego is part of you! You want to achieve something so badly yet you cannot follow through? Why? Your ego is stopping you from making a change and growing to keep you safe. It sounds crazy but the moment you REFUSE to believe your ego, that’s the moment you make quantum leaps in your life, in your career, in weight loss, tummy fat, flabby arms, absolutely everything.

So now that you know what I am talking about with your inner critic, how do you deal with it in order to lose weight, get a flatter tummy and so on.


3 Simple Steps.

1) You must get crystal clear on exactly what you want. How much weight do you want to lose, what do you look like, what do you feel like, what clothes do you now wear? Don’t limit yourself on this. Make Goal Cards and post them in your house, on your computer, and focus on them! Ask yourself this question – where do I want to be in 6 months time that would genuinely make me happy with my progress? You know that you don’t want to be where you are now in 6 months – you want to lose weight, tone your arms and feel more confident and abundantly happy. Everyone does, but not everyone pursues it.

2) Believe that you CAN do it! Regardless of what anyone says to you – you can do or be anything you want in this world, the only person who stops you is yourself! Avoid people who do not support your dreams, avoid the naysayers who say you won’t make it. Surround yourself with friends and family who support you and will keep you accountable to your weight loss goals, not the ones who’ll let you off the hook and bring you cake and chocolates!

3) Take action – if you want to lose weight and you have a trainer who tells you what to eat, you must listen to them! Why self sabotage yourself and eat junk food or binge drink when it is NOT taking you closer to your goal? Your body and your life is an issue of personal responsibility! We are consistently telling our clients that we are responsible for showing them how to lose weight, but ultimately it is an issue of personal responsible. You can take a horse to water but you cannot force it to drink. You must take hold of that and understand that this is your life and you choose how you want to live it! If you don’t know what to do, then get help; find someone to be accountable to. Just do something in the right direction towards your goal.

I know it sounds way too simple to work but it’s so deceptively simple that we dismiss it at the drop of a hat. We were born to live an abundant life, filled with greatness and pure joy! It is your choice how you live your life, but I personally choose to live a life of magnificence and passion.

Make a decision today to change and watch the weight fall off as you daily take a step closer towards your goal! One of my favourite quotes – you either of the life of your dreams/body or you have a lifetime of excuses as to why it didn’t happen. I believe in you, I walk this journey with you and I love you.
