How To Absolutely Quit Lying To Yourself So You Can Lose Weight Today

Lose Weight Today shellijohnson.com

So to lose weight today, you need to stop lying to yourself. Period. I want you to know a few things:

  1. You do not have to lie to yourself ever.
  2. Lying to yourself causes you pain, which you then may use food to numb or avoid.
  3. You will never be empowered by believing a lie.
  4. You will not get what you truly want from your life by lying to yourself.
  5. No matter how much you might try to convince yourself otherwise, a lie is still a lie.

To lose weight today, you must stop living a lie

I’ve worked with some kind, generous, intelligent, beautiful women who’ve been trying, some of them for years, to convince themselves of a lie. Here are some examples of things they desperately wanted to believe about themselves:

  • They were okay with living in an overweight body.
  • That feeling uncomfortable in their own bodies was really acceptable to them.
  • That they were truly happy with the way their life was going and all the extra weight they were carrying around.
  • That being overweight and/or obese wasn’t taking a toll on both their physical and mental health.

Some of them lived a lie for so long that when they finally let themselves admit the truth, they were devastated by all the years that went by.

To lose weight today, realize that a lie is a lie

Thing is: a lie is still a lie no matter how much you may want to believe it or tell yourself that you believe it. Nothing will turn a lie into the truth.

And a lie causes a rift inside of you, even if you’re not necessarily aware of it early on. You’ll become aware of it though the longer you keep lying to yourself.

On the one side of that rift is the lie. On the other is the truth of what you really want to have/be/do/say. If you let it go on, that rift will tear you apart.

To lose weight today, know that lying doesn’t serve you at all

Lying to yourself doesn’t serve you at all for two reasons:

  1. The rift inside you created by the lie causes you pain, which you likely use food to try to numb and/or avoid.
  2. All the time you spend lying to yourself is all the time you can never get back.

To lose weight today, discover what’s true for you

Just because someone else, even someone in authority or an expert on the subject, tells you what you “should” want to have/be/do/say, that does not mean it’s true for you.

That person’s advice and opinions are colored by their own experiences and their own limits and their own fears. When you take their advice or opinions as truth for you, well, those experiences and limits and fears become your own. Do yourself a kindness and don’t do that to yourself.

 

 

To lose weight today, decide what deeply matters to you

  • You know what you want. 
  • You know what you need to do to go get it.
  • Don’t let anybody ever tell you that you shouldn’t want it.
  • Don’t let anybody ever tell you that you can’t have it.

If being in a body that feels like home to you and being comfortable in your own skin is important to you and moving confidently through the world matters to you, then that’s reason enough to pursue whatever it is you need to do to achieve those goals for yourself.

So to sum it all up …

  • You listen to your own self.
  • And you go after what you want for your life.
  • You go be happy.
  • You go create a life and a body you love.

My weight-loss journey & how it can help you quit lying to yourself

I got free. Your life can be that way too.

I made my own path because I needed to get myself out of the crazy-making behavior I was having around food. I needed no restrictions, no weighing and measuring food, no off-limit foods, no more judgment around food, no more judging my self-worth based on the scale, no more you’re-not-doing-it-perfectly diet rules that were only fueling my constant thinking about and obsession with food. I needed to modify and change any weight-loss technique I found useful to suit my own personal needs.

  • I lost 160+ pounds naturally & have kept it off for 9 years and counting.
  • I no longer have any eating disorders.
  • I no longer have a fear of food.

Just imagine what you could be doing with your life, following your own dreams and reaching your own goals, cultivating your own passions, making both your inner and outer worlds a more blissful and peaceful place, if you weren’t running in circles on the diet-go-round.

I got that for my life. I want it for yours. My books will show you how.
