Do you binge or make bad food choices and then later feel badly about yourself? Think about it – even though you made a mistake and acted against your intention, you are now adding fuel to the fire by getting down on yourself about it.
Whenever you have thoughts like “I messed up again.” “I just hate myself.” “I’ll never beat this.” “There’s just no hope for me.” “I feel awful.” Etc, etc. be sure to add a positive thought to counter every negative thought you have.
Some thoughts to counter these negatives are:
- I made a mistake but tomorrow’s another day.
- I went against my intention but for the past two weeks I’ve done really well.
- I still didn’t eat as much as I used to when I felt this way.
- I accept that there’s a reason for how I acted and it’s OK.
- I’m still willing to keep at it until I get it right.
- I’m will to keep exploring this until food becomes my friend.
For those of you that tap, you can use this script. Start at the top of the head and go through the armpit point. Tap one sentence on each point.
If you don’t know about tapping yet, please go to my website and download the Quick Start Guide: www.MakingWeightLossEasy.com
Then you will be able to get started.
First set – give it a SUD level first.
I blew it again.
I wonder if I’ll ever get it right.
I do so well for a while and then I blow it again.
It’s just too hard to face the feelings that come up.
I’m out of control again.
I just hate myself when I do this.
This anxiety is just too hard to control.
I wonder what’s wrong with me.
Second Set – do this when your SUD level is at 3 or below.
I know there’s something behind all this.
I don’t feel safe yet facing my emotions.
I choose to give it another try.
I’m improving in a lot of ways.
I don’t get out of control nearly as much as I used to.
What is it that I really crave?
I’m not a bad person, but I still need this crutch.
Eventually I’ll get it right and I accept who I am right now.
