Encouraging Healthy Eating

We are the products of our thoughts. What we do, say, eat, and believe is a product of the words we allow in our minds.

So if you want to change your actions, you must start with changing your thoughts. That’s when real progress can begin! Since there will always be reasons to eat junk food we need some firepower to fight those reasons. We need good thoughts to help motivate us, to cheer ourselves on so we can live the lives we are meant to live!

That’s where my encouraging replacement statements come in. These are thoughts I’ve used to help me stay focused on my health goals. They help me be strong mentally when I want to give up.

Replacement Statements for Healthier Eating

“There is a healthy version of every flavor. I choose the healthy version.”

“Time will pass either way. I’d rather make progress during that time.”

“I won’t feel good after eating this and I don’t want that to affect my performance.”

“I am meant to thrive.”

“This is my moment. It’s in moments of decision that I show I am choosing health.”

“My body is a temple that houses my spirit, so I will treat it like the celestial creation it is.”

“My body is a gift from God. I will take care of it to show Him gratitude.”

“The best is yet to come.”

These thoughts give me power for good choices to help me have a happy body!  I really hope you find some that resonate with you. Write them down somewhere you’ll see them and repeat them often until they’re memorized.

Stick with the process and you CAN change the way you think about your body. I hope you will love yourself and take care of yourself! Check out Food Tips & Recipes, for more support!

I’ve experienced this in my life and know you can too.
