Decide what you want from your weight loss journey
To manifest weight loss the right way, you need to decide exactly what you want from your journey and the results you want to see.
Shedding the pounds and reaching a target weight is a given—so be as specific as you can. The more thoughtful and detailed you can be when manifesting, the better because you'll set yourself on the right path from the outset.
Everyone is different, and your manifestation journey is personal to you. Don't compare—simply visualize what you want and need.

- I want to try a new activity or form of exercise I can keep up
- I want to get into healthier eating habits and try new recipes
- I want to fit into some of my favorite old clothes
- I want to be more energized throughout the day
- I want to feel good about myself, inside out
Create your vision board
Okay, when we say create your vision board, we don't mean creating collages of pin-thin celebrities or influencers and asking the universe to do the work for you. No, we mean putting together something visual to give you the motivation and inspiration you need to succeed.
By creating a vision board that includes your main goals (as detailed above) as well as visuals of the activities you want to try and the looks you're trying to achieve, you'll have a 'manifestation HQ' that you can refer to when you need it most.
You can tailor your mood board to your exact needs or preferences and even throw a few weight loss affirmations into the mix for added positivity—which brings us to our next point.
Flood yourself with positive weight loss affirmations
With your manifestation goals and mood board ready to rock, you should aim to flood yourself with positive affirmations every single day.
But what are positive affirmations, exactly? Well positive affirmations are statements or phrases designed to challenge negative beliefs.
They're statements of positivity that will help you manifest weight loss with confidence by helping you believe in yourself and your ability to achieve your goals.
All you need to do is pick a positive weight loss affirmation in the morning, repeat it as many times as you see fit, and...believe.
A quick web search will help you connect with no end of powerful affirmations—you can even write some yourself (we know you can do it!)—and here are some of our favorites to get you started...
"I’m making the right choices with my health in mind."
"Being active fuels my body."

Find your 'feel good' factor
Fueled by your positive thoughts and affirmations, to manifest weight loss, you need to find what makes you feel good and weave it into your everyday existence.
There are so many ways to find your 'feel good'—from cookery and gardening to hiking, exercise classes—and beyond. The point is to keep a steady stream of positivity flowing through your life. And, even the smallest of things can make a huge difference in the long run.

When you're trying to manifest weight loss and reach your ideal weight, support is everything. Remember, manifesting is all about feeling positive and believing that your goals are within reach.

When trying to reach their ideal weight, so many people fall into the trap of restricting themselves of anything that they consider a 'treat'. This mindset can result in self-loathing, negativity, and limiting beliefs that stunt progress.
Be kind to yourself and enjoy the odd slice of cake, takeaway or tipple. The aim here is to strike the right balance. It's about trusting yourself, believing you can reach your goals, and making small yet sustainable lifestyle tweaks that will get you where you want to be.
Make sure you enjoy a few indulgences every week and find happiness in 'healthy treat' activities like trying tasty new recipes that nourish your body or giving yourself time for a little pampering.
A 'healthy treat' is anything that makes you feel good and that you can weave into your newfound healthy, balanced lifestyle. So, choose your treats and leave the guilt behind.
Reframing your thoughts around weight loss...

Eat a little less, move a little more, do the things that make you feel good, rest when you can...and you'll start shedding the pounds in no time. We believe in you.
