37 Best Weight Loss Affirmations (That Really Work)!

by Allie McCormick

While it’s true that you simply can’t escape the scientific truth that you must burn more calories than you eat to lose weight, I want to let you in on a little secret. 

Keeping a positive mindset is critical to your success on your weight loss journey. 

When you’re overweight or obese in a society that constantly bombards you with images of the opposite, it’s all too easy to spend way too much time focusing on the negatives. 

Not feeling good enough, believe if you could just lose xx pounds, suddenly you’ll have no life problems and a world of opportunity will open up to you. 

Feeling like if you look a certain way, then you suddenly become more deserving of some of the better experiences and things in life. 

Whether you’d like to admit it or not, the way you talk to yourself about your body affects everything. 

Think of it like this — if you start your day admiring yourself, feeling confident about the things your body can do, and the things you love about yourself… don’t you think you’ll have a better time than if you look in the mirror with disgust for the person staring back at you? 

But how do you create a positive mindset for weight loss? 

Today, I’m going to show you exactly how!

If you don’t know what to do with this list of affirmations for weight loss, here are four ideas for how to get started!


1- Say Them Out Loud To Yourself

A technique popularized by the late Louise Hay, known as mirror work, involves stating positive affirmations while you look at yourself in the mirror. If you spend just a few minutes each morning or night working on this technique, you’ll see great results!

The book Mirror Work is a 21-day program that guides you through the entire process. I used it earlier this year and it really jump-started my own weight loss efforts. I struggled a bit before trying this program, and it helped smooth things out quite a bit.

Many people (not just me!) report making sweeping life changes because of this book. Don’t just take it from me — check out the book reviews!

Check it out for yourself if you’d like to save time and jump-start your daily affirmation practice in a way that you KNOW will work.


2- Meditate Using Positive Affirmations for Weight Loss

Simply choose weight loss affirmations and treat it like a weight loss mantra. That means you repeat it over and over in your head while focusing on your breath.


3- Write Your Weight Loss Affirmations In A Journal

Writing positive weight loss affirmations in your daily journal or tracker is the perfect way to reap the benefits. 

When losing weight, it’s always a good idea to track your thoughts, progress, diet, and exercise anyway. 

Creating a daily habit of writing affirmations to lose weight only intensifies your results!


4- Posting Positive Affirmations On Sticky Notes

Write your weight loss affirmations on post-it notes and stick them in places where you’re likely to see them. Like on your bathroom mirror or on your fridge.


5- Subliminal Affirmations

If none of the above options suits you, you might like to try subliminal affirmations!

Subliminal affirmations are recorded affirmations played at a very low sound, underneath soothing music or ambient sound. That way, your conscious mind hears just the music, while your subconscious mind processes the positive affirmations!

A huge benefit here is that you can basically manifest on auto-pilot! Play your subliminal affirmations while working out, doing chores, or even sleeping. It’s one of the easiest ways to get started using affirmations.
