If you are ready to shed some pounds but the concept of limited food choices is less than appealing and weight loss programs focused on what you can’t do or have tend to encourage tantrums from your inner two-year old, read on. You are not alone – diets don’t work!

So, if dieting isn’t the answer to shedding pounds, what is?

How about a program that teaches you to honor and nourish all aspects of yourself – physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally – so you can heal past hurts and expand your capacity to love yourself and others, all while achieving your weight loss goals? The Journey to WOW – Choose Health NOW™ program, based on the Law of Attraction, will do just that.

You may have heard about the Law of Attraction through the book and DVD, The Secret, featured in many media channels including Oprah, Larry King, and USA Today. Simply put, the Law of Attraction is a universal law that states “like attracts like”. This means, as explained in Michael Losier’s book, The Law of Attraction: “I attract into my life whatever I give my energy, attention, and focus to, whether positive or negative.”

Our minds are powerful. Too often, we unconsciously use this power to create negative thoughts that sabotage our efforts to make positive changes in our lives. The Conscious Transformation ProcessTM, a method I developed for my clients that is integral to the Journey to WOW program, teaches you to harness the power of your mind to create your ideal body in a constructive, life-affirming way through the following five steps:

  1. Ask the universe for what you want. Get really clear about all the attributes and characteristics of what you want. What do you want to experience as a healthy person? What will it look like? What will it feel like?
  2. Align your thoughts, beliefs, and words with your desires. Use affirmations, visualization, guided imagery, vision boards and even movies you create with affirmations and pictures. Feel how great you will feel when you are at your ideal weight.
  3. Act upon inspiration and in congruency with your desires. Adopt the behaviors of health conscious individuals. You can’t ask to be healthy and then eat a dozen cookies. If you truly want to release weight, then eat appropriate portions, exercise regularly, hydrate yourself and be mindful about your actions. Say to yourself “I’m in control of my choices; is this what I choose?”
  4. Account for your actions. Don’t adopt too many new behaviors at one time. Choose to incorporate 2 – 3 new behaviors every 14 to 21 days. Then keep track every day of whether you were successful in adopting that new behavior that day.
  5. Allow your desires to manifest. Believe in your ability to create a healthy body for yourself, and then detach from the outcome. Don’t get on the scale every day, just let it happen gradually!
  6. You can, once and for all, throw dieting out the window and achieve your perfect healthy body. As you begin to experience success, your confidence will soar, and you will feel a heightened sense of joy and well-being. So forget dieting. Allow the Law of Attraction to help you create the life you truly want.
