The Key to Achieving Your Health Goals
Sitting up straight or lying down, close your eyes for a moment and imagine what you would feel like, if you had your ideal body and perfect health. Really take a few moments to let yourself imagine this. Let go of your current self, your present self-image, health and body... and imagine the new you.
Imagine yourself with toned arms, flat 6-pack abs and legs and butt to die-for.
What would you do with all that extra energy, how would you dress differently, how would you feel about yourself?
Experience the confidence you would have, how your self-esteem would soar and how others would perceive your attractiveness and confidence! Imagine the limitlessness to all the activities you could participate in with your healthy, fit body. Imagine an evening of feeling sexy, sexually confident and attractive with your significant other. How would that affect your relationship or your ability to attract your ideal soul mate? Envision your perfect body and the way it would make you feel! Think of it like this: This vision is the “authentic” you – the person you have always wanted to be with the body and health that you have always known you should have!
Do you ever say to yourself, “If I just lost the weight, got healthy and took care of myself, then I would feel like […]”
That is the person you should be …the True or “authentic” You.
Now, open your eyes and realize where your health truly is. How much weight could you stand to lose or how much farther do you have to go before you have the lean, flat stomach of your dreams? Take a look at the harsh reality of what your body has become and consider the effect it has had on your self-esteem and self-image. Think about how your poor body image has negatively impacted your life.
Has your confidence become less than it could be?
Are you less sexually confident and is your sense of attractiveness diminished?
Do you feel great in a swimsuit or revealing outfit or do you hide from your mate or from yourself?
