I was talking to one of my dear friends today about losing weight and what The Secret says about it. She had just watched the movie again and wants to apply The Secret to lose some extra pounds. The movie doesn't go into detail about it, but the book and audio book do discuss specific suggestions for using The Secret to lose weight.
Rhonda Byrne writes in her book: "The first thing to know is that if you focus on losing weight, you will attract back having to lose more weight, so get "having to lose weight" out of your mind. It's the very reason why diets don't work."
"The second thing to know is that the condition of being overweight was created through you thought about it. To put in the most basic terms, if someone is overweight, it came from thinking "fat thoughts", whether that person was aware of it or not. A person cannot think "thin thoughts" and be fat. It completely defies the Law of Attraction."
When I was talking to my friend today, I suggested that she start with her goal in mind. Think of the weight or size you want to be and focus on that. Think "thin thoughts". Don't be too concerned about how it's going to happen, just stay focused on the end result. I suggested to my friend for her to remember when she was at the weight she liked, to recall how it felt, and if there were any negative feelings associated with that memory, to let them go and just focus on what she liked.
You can even create a vision board of pictures of the body you want. I've even heard of people clipping pictures of other people's bodies and pasting photos of their heads to make it look like it's their new physique. In fact, I did that for a vision board of me on the new ATV I want. I cut out the picture and pasted my head on the rider's body. It's an awesome visualization tool!
The most important factor though in reaching your goal (and any goal for that matter) is to feel good. As Rhonda Byrne points out in her book: "The definition of the perfect weight is the weight that feels good for you. You must feel good about You. This is important because you cannot attract your perfect weight if you feel bad about your body now. Praise and bless every square inch of your body. As you feel good about You, you are on the frequency of your perfect weight, and you are summoning it."
One last tip offered in The Secret book on the subject of losing weight is being completely present and focused when you eat. When you pay attention to the tastes and textures of the food you are eating, focusing on chewing it and enjoying all the flavors, your body is able to assimilate all the nutrients and digest it perfectly. If you slow down and take the time to really enjoy and appreciate your meal, you may notice you don't eat so much and are satisfied sooner.
So be easy with yourself, see your body in your mind at your ideal weight now, focus on feeling good, and be present when eating. That's the real Secret to losing weight.
