Do you hate your fat? Do you look at yourself in the mirror with disdain, look at parts of your body with regret, and put yourself down for eating too much?
Well guess what – when you percolate that strong emotion and “hate your fat” do you know what you’re creating more of? You got it – fat!
What Are You Saying?
If you’re familiar with the law of attraction, whatever you focus on and put emotion behind is what you will attract more of. So if you are continuously focusing on your fat and thinking about:
- how you don’t like it,
- how you want it to go away,
- and how you wish it wasn’t there, you’re putting an awful lot of energy into creating more fat.
That’s right, whatever you focus on is what you will create more of. If you focus on what you don’t like you’re unwittingly creating more of what you don’t like, but you know what this means? It means the opposite is also true, so when you focus on:
- everything that you like about yourself,
- everything that you like about your body,
- and everything that’s going right with your body, you are creating more of what you want in your life.
Heard This Before?
If you’ve done my 31 Days of Loving Yourself Thin series these concepts are not new to you. You know that it’s so much easier to lose weight when you love yourself as you are now and focus on all of the wonderful things that you love about yourself. You see by focusing on what you love, you’ll create more of those loving experiences in your life, and I bet you’d like to have more of those kinds of experiences, right?
By focusing on:
- what you love about yourself,
- the healthy foods you eat,
- and how good it feels to move your body, you will create more of the same!
If You Don’t Believe in LOA
One thing about The Secret is it brought the law of attraction into mainstream consciousness. Other’s have been teaching it long before The Secret, but even if you don’t have any interest in the law of attraction you’re putting yourself in the position to keep your fat hanging around if you continue to hate it, especially if you’re an emotional eater. Why? Because hating your fat doesn’t make you feel good (does it?) and what do us emotional eaters do when we don’t feel good? We want to eat!
