Hi, I am back today with a very interesting topic: how to lose weight sustainanly and ways to do it with the Law of Attraction. I want to discuss the key factors that can help you lose weight in a healthy and sustainable way, meaning that you are able to maintain your weight afterwards.
When it comes to body positivity and self-love, I always find resonance with lessons and guidance from Louise Hay. Today, I want to talk a bit about losing weight and maintaining a healthy lifestyle for both physical and mental health. Additionally, I will provide some Louise Hay weight loss affirmations that you can practice as well.
Louise Hay Weight Loss Affirmations:
When do you need to lose weight
Before we get into the part of Louise Hay weight loss affirmations, I want to share with you some of my thoughts about when it might be necessary to consider losing weight.
I believe that each one of us has our own unique beauty, regardless of our size, shape, or color.
While physical appearance may catch our attention, true attraction often comes from a person’s personality and how they carry themselves. Believe it or not, the attraction from one person come largely from their personality, and how they handle life.
We can describe it like a vibe.
You may have encountered several people in your life who may not fit the conventional beauty standards set by society, yet they possess a unique charm that makes them appealing in their own way.
So yes, the look is not everything.
However, this doesn’t mean we should neglect our appearance altogether. If being overweight affects our health, causes discomfort or hinders our daily activities, it’s time to consider losing weight.
When you gain extra pounds because you don’t take care of yourself, such as eating junk foods, not exercising, and staying in bed all day. That’s when you may need to focus on losing weight.
If gaining weight makes you feel unhappy and not true to yourself, then it may be time to consider making changes.
Don’t ever try to lose weight to conform to a certain beauty standard or believe that you have to look a certain way to be loved.
With that said, let’s move on to Louise Hay’s affirmations for weight loss or what I like to call “body positivity affirmations.”

Why losing weights have to go along with self love
Losing weight is often associated with societal pressures and standards around beauty and body image.
It’s easy to get carried away during your weight loss journey, to a point where you never feel satisfied about how you look. This can make you keep going to extreme measures and try all sorts of diets without considering the impact on their physical and mental health, which can lead to eating disorders and OCD.
Losing weight always has to go along with self-love. Self-love can help you approach your journey with a positive mindset and focus on your health and well-being rather than external pressures or expectations.
Moreover, self-love can contribute to building self-confidence, resilience, and overall mental and emotional well-being, which are key factors in achieving a healthy and fulfilling life.
Self love practices for you:
An easy self-love practice you can use is affirmations. Beside Louise Hay weight loss affirmations mentioned above, you can check out my list of Louise Hay’s best affirmations for self-love here.
Other self love practices include:
Treat yourself: Do something nice for yourself each day. This can be something as simple as taking a relaxing bath or enjoying a favorite snack.
Set boundaries: Learn to say no to things that don’t serve you or make you feel good. Setting boundaries can help you prioritize your own needs and well-being.
Practice self-care: Take care of your physical and emotional needs by getting enough sleep, eating well, exercising, and engaging in activities that bring you joy and relaxation.
Mirror works can do miracles
Another very effective method I want to introduce to you is mirror works.
Mirror work is a technique developed by Louise Hay that involves looking into a mirror and repeating affirmations to yourself. The idea is that by facing and accepting ourselves in the mirror, we can learn to love and accept ourselves more fully.
It’s very simple.
When something awesome happens, go to the mirror and say, “Thank you, thank you! That’s awesome! Thanks for making it happen!”
If something bad happens, go to the mirror and say, “It’s okay, I love you. This thing will pass, but I’ll always love you.”
As you keep doing this mirror works, it’ll grow into new and healthy ways of thinking that’ll lead to a happy and fulfilling life.
Here’s a short clip of Louise Hay teaching us how to do mirror work. It’s sure to make your day more soothing!
I hope my post provided you with some insight into the topic of losing weight. Let’s all take on the journey of self-love more effectively and if we ever consider losing weight, let’s do it in a healthy way. Losing weight should be a form of self-love, not a punishment we put on ourselves to fit in with societal standards.
