Words Matter

Hi folks, it’s Christopher Lawrence with the Healthy Transformations Program coming to you from Calgary, Alberta, healthytransformations.ca. Sometimes people ask me why I put so much emphasis on the words we use and how could that possibly relate to weight loss, reducing inflammation, and sustaining those goals over a long, extended period of time, maybe even your whole life. Well, actually, the reason why it matters is because the words that come out of your mouth are an indicator of what you’re thinking. And what you’re thinking is always an indicator of your belief system and your belief system, is related to your value system. And so, when you’re using certain words, there’s a whole bunch of things that you can check out on this, cognitive distortions is one, you can Google that, or you can check out neurolinguistic programming, or hypnolinguistics, and you’ll come to understand how words matter. And so, when we hear certain words, it can be an indicator of what you’re thinking, believing, feeling. And if we don’t address those things, it can be really hard to actually step into weight loss.

So here’s the thing about every other program on earth, is that they focus on the weight loss, they focus on the number, but what they don’t focus on is the lifestyle change. And people say it all the time. This isn’t just a diet, it’s a lifestyle change. I say B-S! I have heard people say that, but they do not understand what a lifestyle change means. Lifestyle change means that you might need to change your friends, your environment and almost always, the way you think. For us to sustain weight loss, and reduce inflammation, and eat correctly for the rest of our lives, we actually have to change how we think and what we say. We need to capture that. We need to change our mindset completely. So, like even the words that we use absolutely matter, because it’s an indicator of all that other stuff. If we don’t address that stuff, then what we have is a body that doesn’t match the brain and the heart. And so, we wanna get the brain and the heart fully stepping into the weight loss, just like the body has. This is why we encourage people, as soon as you start to loose weight, start to get rid of your old clothes. Get rid of those old clothes, get rid of ’em! And it’s like well, I might go back. Well, then you’re already planning to fail, right? So, we wanna make it as painful as possible to put weight back on, to increase inflammation, right? So, just a couple of tips and tricks there, but pay attention to the words that come out of your mouth, and how those might be helping you, or hindering you with weight loss.
