Affirmations Success Stories-Losing Weight

One of the things I learned most recently is about losing weight with affirmations. It works and I have my experience to share.

My life has been about searching. I always knew there was something we had forgotten about living this life on earth. I believe we are way more powerful than we know.

I guess I've been dieting ever since my teen years. I'm now in my fifties. Now, when I diet, nothing happens at all, no matter how long I restrict my food intake. However, I can easily gain 5 pounds in a matter of days, just eating like a normal person.

I decided to really infiltrate my thinking with a thought about losing weight. After all, I figured I had nothing to lose, as diets simply weren't working anymore.

So, the first thing I did was deciding to never diet again. I think this is a major portion of why my affirmations worked. If you think about it, dieting causes a feeling of lack.

I believe that the unconscious thinks you are going through a famine when you diet. Therefore, it eventually wants to hold onto your stored fat for the next famine that may come along. It also makes you gain back any fat you've lost. It doesn't consider the good or bad of losing weight.

I had just recently gained 8 pounds. My statement was simple and short, "I am _____ pounds." It was 8 pounds lighter than my current weight. I said it especially when going to sleep at night, over and over, and when I woke up in the morning. But, I also repeated it throughout the day and if I woke up at night.

I weighed after two weeks and nothing had happened. I weighed again after three weeks and the 8 pounds was gone.

The second time I tried this, I went for 10 pounds lighter. I kept up the repetitions for two months, but there was no weight loss. So, I'm thinking it was just a fluke. But, I decided to try it again with just 5 pounds less. I lost the 5 pounds, but it took a full month. Again, I tried it with just 5 pounds.

This time I had the opportunity to say the affirmation much more than I had in the past. It took only 15 days this time.

I'm working on something else this month, but will get back to losing weight again soon. The interesting thing is that I eat whatever I want. I have neither gained nor lost a pound. It seems that my unconscious believes that I weigh the last amount I affirmed to it, no matter what. Or, at least until I convince it further.

I hope this encourages others to try this method. Of course, you must be willing to stick to it and not give up after a few days. After all, think of how long you've been telling your subconscious that you are fat and that you are living in a diet famine.

Power of Affirmation and Positive Thinking

Hi. Thanks for taking time to read my experience with affirmations. I am not a person whom one calls an easy believer. I fought my way to prove that they don't work. Yet here I am sharing my experience as a completely changed person and a profound believer in the power of affirmations.

I have successfully completed my PhD and am currently working as a post doctoral researcher. However I was not so sure a while ago about my capabilities as a good researcher. I faced problems with my analyses and my results. Despite sincere efforts I couldn't realise the results. At a particularly low spot in life, I had almost given up on the idea of completing my PhD.

During this time I was also exploring meditation, hypnosis and self-hypnosis to help with my depression. That is how I first came across affirmations. A close friend suggested me to try these and helped me with choosing the affirmation. I swept aside my doubts and questions. I ruthlessly crushed the negative thoughts and instead visualized myself being worthy of my doctorate and that I am ready to be a successful researcher.

I scribbled repeatedly about being successful, ready and letting go of all my fears and doubts standing in my way to success. Miraculously I submitted my thesis within 4 months, cleared my PhD viva and graduated in 6 months.

I realized then that I was the only one standing in my way, blocking my success. The affirmation combined with the visualization made me realise and believe that I am ready, that I am worthy.

It is neither pride nor ego but simple acceptance of the truth. My subconscious understood it and then everything was real. I sincerely hope that people who are pointed to this page have already received their calling for a change and betterment in life. All you need is to believe your affirmation.

Put all your love, belief and hope into it. Try to see yourself in the situation, in the zone. It will come true. It doesn't depend on whether you are good or bad. But it depends on whether we believe and feel we deserve it. It's all about us personally. I hope that this sincerely helps someone.
