How to Say Goodbye to Your Fat

As we lose weight and move from fat to thinner; from unhealthy modes of eating to healthy eating, we run the risk of getting so caught up in the forward thrust and excitement of it all that we forget to say goodbye to what was and fully acknowledge our progress.
Acknowledging what was, the progress that you have made, and the changes that have occurred is an integral part of permanent weight removal (a.k.a. weight loss).
It’s important to slow down and say goodbye to those ounces – one ounce at a time – that have melted away (yes, this is an ounce by ounce happening). In so doing, we create a moment to pause and reflect. We create a space for us to notice the nuances of change; a moment to fully take in our success, which we so often dismiss. “Oh, I only lost one pound this week.”
Saying goodbye ounce by ounce with ‘right thought’ allows us to not only leave the ounces behind but also the negative talk. Yes, as you let go of one ounce, you can along with it let go of one negative thought or belief.
With each ounce that you let go of, take a moment to say, “I thank you for traveling with me thus far, and now I’d like to say good-bye.” You might put your hand on your stomach, your hips or any other part of you that has been holding on to excess weight, as you say this, allowing yourself to get ‘in touch’ with your changing body.
As you do this, you will be freeing yourself to embrace all the changes that come with healthy eating. In this way, we honor who we are in our totality. We cleanse our mind, spirit and body. We clear a space for more healthy change.
Evolve. Don’t just improve.

    Janice,
    Oh, what a nice post. It is right where I am at the moment!
    Working the last 2 weeks + on increased cardio and strength
    exercises, healthier eating, and a one pound weight loss.
    Now, I can go back over those 16 ounces and speed them on their
    way. Just today, I have noticeable changes in muscle groups — they
    actually show now.
    And tonight, instead of whining that it was too hot for the evening
    walk, I set out just at sunset and had a gorgeous view of mountains
    and clouds. Ah, life is good.

    most of people prefer to skip the food to avoid weight gain of fat but its really very wrong way as it comes to healthy life. right eating habit with necessary exercise will definitely help to avoid extra fat gain.
