“Wayne Dyer put a little spin on the classic saying, and I absolutely adore this revamped version: “I’ll see it when I believe it.”
Have you ever been tip-toeing across an icy parking lot and thinking to yourself, “I’m going to fall. I just KNOW I’m going to fall. I’m totally going to fa–” ARGH! Down you go! Well no wonder. You told yourself over and over again that you were going to fall. What the hell did you expect?
Losing fat is time intensive, and during that period it’s only normal to become emotionally vested in the process. There will be days that your jeans slide right on and you just feel good… but there will also inevitably be other days that make you question yourself and the entire process. Because of this, it’s vitally important that you stay positive. Find peace in the fact that you are doing your best and have faith that it’s working. I’m not suggesting that you be unrealistic – thinking happy thoughts while eating Ding-Dongs isn’t gonna cut it – but I am absolutely telling you to buck up, stay the course, and be optimistic.
Tell yourself you are succeeding (present tense) and believe it. Stick it somewhere that you can see it so that it melds into your subconscious. Put a post-it on your mirror. Spray it into your grass in Round-Up. Do whatever you have to do, but make it stick: I am succeeding!” – Jen Comas Keck
