Emotional Eating "More Thoughts on Losing Part III"

So we've learned to remember where we put things to avoid losing them. But that's not the only problem with the word "Lose."

Ever since kindergarten we've played games and we've always wanted to be on the winning side. No one wants to be a loser. There are no rewards for being a loser. In fact we work hard to keep from being a loser and no one wants to be around a loser.

The bottom line is that there is a tremendous amount of programming against being a loser or losing things.

Even though we consciously know we're using the word "lose" in association with getting rid of excess pounds, the subconscious mind is programmed against being a "loser."
There are far more effective words to use which I'll share in the next post
