Keeping Weight Off with Intuition

Intuition works like a vitamin that you take to stay good to yourself. It helps keep off the weight you lose by keeping clear about what feels good to your body, heart and mind.

Take this Intuitive Vitamin every morning to reinforce smart choices and stay clear about keeping weight off:
      • Every day before you get out of bed, say out loud, "I will notice how I feel before I eat. I will remember my body is the home of my heart and treat it with respect. I will see, smell and taste all food that I eat." 
Intuitive eating works because you learn to know when you're physically satisfied and when you're being physically abusive. For example, you're at a party and aware that your favorite party pants are feeling tight, but there is a tray of your favorite cookies. You don't feel hungry but your friends are eating the cookies and you want to be 'social'. Also, you know you can't eat just one.
    • Ask for help: Friends will be surprisingly supportive. Tell the truth - you're not really hungry. 
    • Help yourself: Grab a glass of something to hold or put something you don't really 'want' on a plate and hold it as you socialize. It's intuitive to protect yourself from old defeating habits.
    • Reward yourself at the end of the evening: Look back at the evening and the way you handled yourself. Give yourself credit for taking steps to keep your body looking and feeling good. 
Intuition works like common sense.  For example, you lose 15 pounds:
  • You like the way you look and feel. 
  • You decide you want to stay looking and feeling good. 
  •  You commit to yourself.
If you're not sure how recognize your intuition, then grab a copy of Am I Really Hungry to learn how to defeat social and emotional hot buttons that make you feel like overeating. Or download a copy so you can refer to it any time. Intuition is something you were born with and you can connect with it 24/7.
Be good to yourself. Use your intuitive vitamin to keep weight off long-term:
  • Feed the body you like.
  • Eat when you are hungry to maintain your energy and health.
  • Choose not to eat what you don't need by respecting your body.
Keeping the weight off is really satisfying.
It gives you time and energy to focus on finding satisfaction in other areas of your life - and you will!
