I’m Losing Weight!
I have always struggled with body image. Ever since I was a kid I found myself standing next to my cousin and constantly comparing myself. She’ a club basketball player and I don’t do any sports.
I wasn’t always the ‘fat one’ of the group. I used to have stick-like legs and a tiny waist like they do. My grandma was worried about my weight and began to feed me a ginseng drink. Now that I think about it, I wonder how ginseng helps you gain weight.
Now that you have a bit of a backstory, I’m going to cut to the chase.
When I began this journey with The Secret, I was 5’3″ and 123 pounds. You may think that it was a healthy weight, but it was not my ideal weight. I always believed that I had a slow metabolism, thick thighs, and a wide rib cage. I realized all I was doing was sending negative energy to myself.
So, I read The Secret, watched the movie, and my eyes had been opened! I began showing gratitude through small steps at first. I would say ‘Thank you for making me skinny’ with every bite of food I took. I labeled water ‘dream body’ so I could envision getting my dream body through drinking water. I meditated, practiced the 33 x 3 technique, and listened to subliminal messages.
To my surprise, the next morning, I was 120 pounds! I was so happy I started jumping up and down in my bathroom. I looked at myself in the mirror and gave myself a hug. I told my body how much I loved it. And everything has been going well ever since.
I am currently at 117 pounds. However, I did gain a pound or so this morning. I don’t know the reason. Big meal, no poop, period? Anyways, I didn’t feel upset when this happened because I know that I can pop back. By tomorrow I’ll be back at the weight I was yesterday.
If you ever come across obstacles such as these, don’t be sad! Your body is a computer and your mind is the software. Remember that.
