How many times have you started a weight loss program only to quit within a few weeks? Perhaps your motivation was high in the beginning and you may have even lost a few pounds in the beginning, but then as one day dragged into another, you slowly reverted back to your old eating patterns and sedentary lifestyle. Why is that? How can we keep ourselves going to create the new, positive habits that we need to realize our long-term goals? One powerful strategy is affirmations.
