In this episode of Weight Loss for Food-Lovers, Molly talks about one of the most advanced and underused tools in weight loss – visualization. Often a practice of high performance athletes, visualization is a way to go through the motions ahead of time to create the result you want before it happens.
Weight loss is just like anything else. The thoughts that you have are a catalyst for the results you create. It starts with your thinking. You have 100% control over what you think. Your thoughts are either empowering, or disempowering. Practicing visualization in weight loss helps you practice a new pattern of thought which directly leads to new habits and actions.
There are few main ways that this can be useful. The first is imagining yourself at your ideal weight. What does it feel like? How do you think or act differently about yourself and food? The more you practice this, the easier it will be to believe and create.
