The Best Daily Weight Loss Affirmations for 2021

I had a conversation recently with a friend who also struggles with her weight and after a lengthy debate, we concluded that one reason why diets are so hard is that the start of every diet is negative. We complain that we are so fat or so out of shape. We hate our big belly, large hips or flabby arms. But what if we flip the switch? What if we tell ourselves that I enjoy eating healthy food? Or I love the way exercise makes me feel. What if we start doing positive daily weight loss affirmations?

Many times we say these negative statements openly and publicly, but we also say them subconsciously. Quite frankly we constantly boy shame ourselves and we are very good at it! But are these negative statements harmful? And what if we change to self-talk that affirms more positive beliefs.

I once read, if you don’t learn to control your thoughts, you will never know how to control your behaviour.

What Are Affirmations 

Affirmations are positive statements that can help you replace negative, unhelpful or self-sabotaging thoughts. They became popular in the 1920s and can be simple reminders or powerful inspiration to change. They are meant to reprogram the subconscious mind and in the case of weight loss, helps us to believe that we can lose weight and keep it off.

Daily weight loss affirmations can reprogram your brain to believe that you are healthy and fit as you work on getting to your goal weight. 

I love weight loss quotes and here are two that are relevant to why it’s important to change your negative thoughts. Once you learn to control your mind, anything you want is possible. Put another way, the body achieves what the mind believes.

Do Affirmations Work

Yes! Research has shown that affirmations have “benefits across threatening situations; affirmations can decrease stress, increase well being, improve academic performance and make people more open to behavior change.

When I think of weight loss and those of us on a weight loss journey, we are definitively stressed and need a lot of help with behavior change. I can’t say we are in threatening situations, but there are times when faced with a thousand temptations we can feel threatened. 

Think of the ads we see and hear every day on TV, radio, social media, billboards, etc. They obviously work on us and are very effective and so we buy these products and services. In a similar way, your negative thoughts are like our ads about ourselves. 

How about cancelling the negative ads and replacing them with positive ads. 

How to Use Affirmations

Repeat weight loss affirmations in the mornings and before bed

Experts recommend that in order to be effective, affirmations are to be repeated daily three to five times, and ideally in the morning and before bed. You can do one or more affirmations as you please.

A friend told me that she feels silly repeating statements that she knows are not true! I reminded her that she only feels silly because she has decades of believing the opposite is true. Try listening to only positive ads or positive statements about yourself.

I rarely, almost never, hear my fit friends complain about going to the gym. They always seem to have time in their busy schedules to exercise. 

A few years ago, I travelled around Italy for two weeks with a fit friend and it didn’t matter how busy our day was, she was always in the gym before breakfast. When I asked her about it, she simply said, “I love working out, I can’t start my day without it. 

On the other hand, I truly felt that I was too tired from sightseeing to exercise. And in fact, I actually thought that my friend was crazy. 

Fast forward to last year, after a few months on my weight loss journey; I vacationed at an amazing resort in Jamaica for a week. I walked before breakfast and after dinner every day. I also did an aquafit class before lunch every day. And I rode a stationary bike in the gym three times.

What was the difference? It was a change in my mindset and thoughts that led to me have a very active vacation. Now, I like the way I feel when I exercise. I like feeling strong. I enjoy pushing myself a little bit more every day. 

I returned from Italy 6 pounds heavier. I blamed the pasta and gelato. I returned from Jamaica 4 pounds lighter. I thanked my new positive mindset.

Are there days when I am too tired to exercise? Yes, but now I like the way I feel when I exercise. So I exercise. Simple as that. 

I also have a similar change when it comes to food. For example, I used to say that I hate anything green. Now, I happily look for different vegetables to buy and ways to add them to my recipes.

Oh Millie, what great tips! I use a vision board for my goals and it’s a way to re-inforce positive affirmations. I am a true believer, yet somehow manage to never prioritize my ‘health’ and this stops now. You are such a huge inspiration!
