with weight always lingered in my life. Up, down; lose, gain -- over and over again. Deep down I knew there had to be something more than just going on a diet and I made it my mission to figure out what it was.
It took years working as a hairdresser, listening to client's problems about weight leading to health issues. It became increasingly evident to me that self-sabotage and guilt were never-ending themes manifesting negative results for us all. This spurred me on to learn more about changing my focus and therefore changing my own life.
When I think back to January of 2001, when I joined Weight Watchers for the second time (I had previously lost 60 pounds in 1982 at Weight Watchers), one of the things that comes to mind was the visualization I did. At the time, I wasn't aware that visualization was a tool of the Law of Attraction. Each week I sat in my Wednesday morning meeting and visualized myself at my goal weight and being a Leader at Weight Watchers. My visualization became so strong I could see myself up front of the group teaching them tips and tools to reach their goals just as my leader at the time was doing. I knew what I would be wearing, how it would feel, what I would look like, etc. This tool of visualization became part of my everyday life. I told the members, receptionists and leaders what I wanted to do.
This is where the Law of Attraction comes in. All of my thoughts were focused on reaching my goal and helping others do the same, so it didn't surprise me when I reached my goal weight on December 18th, 2001. The Weight Watchers training was to start on January 3rd - so I had reached my goal at the perfect time. I had to first train to be a receptionist and then follow with Leader training. By the time I had finished all of my training a meeting opened up on Fridays, where I happened to have free time. Not six months later the meeting on Wednesday mornings at 10:00, the one I attended during my weight loss, was offered to me. I went on to coach at Weight Watchers for 7 years.
is the power of visualization. The Law of Attraction responds to what
you give your attention, energy and focus to. Having strong emotion, and
clarity, around my vision was one of the reasons why I received
precisely what I wanted. (Continued at Right)
