You don’t have to go on the journey alone. Surround yourself with people who encourage you to make positive changes. Your new, chosen lifestyle involves eating healthy and staying active.

If you are having difficulty doing this on your own, consult a therapist or even a hypnotherapist.
4. VERBAL POSITIVITY:
Surround yourself with positive affirmations. Believing that you can do what you set your heart to, is the first step in achieving your goals. Continue this positive streak, and you are more than halfway there.
Thinking negative thoughts is counterproductive. Realizing what goes on in your head is the first step in taking charge of your mind.

Do this for at least five days. At the end of which, read the entries you have written and replace them with positive ones.
The body follows where the mind goes.
The next time you find yourself thinking or saying negative things, stop yourself. After doing this repeatedly, the negative statements and feelings will be taken over by positive ones.
Pretty soon your life will fall in line with the positive thoughts you are saying, and good things will happen.
