Can we talk about affirmations for a minute? Affirmations are positive things we tell ourselves to shape the way we feel, react, and see our world. As free-thinking humans, we get to choose what we believe, and that includes things we believe about ourselves. A couple of years ago, I started practicing changing the way I think about myself, and what I’m capable of, through positive affirmations.
If you’ve never done it before, I know it can sound cheesy or kind of woo-woo weirdo – and maybe your strongest association with positive affirmations is the Saturday Night Live skit from the 90s (which was mine, for the longest time, and it is hilarious – Google it, if you haven’t seen it). But I promise you, positive self-talk can change you.
These printable weight loss affirmations are designed to help you remember how awesome you are. You’ll notice that while I call them “weight loss affirmations,” they never actually mention weight loss. This is because I believe it’s easy to get stuck when your goals revolve around a typical number you think your body should weigh. I believe in weight loss goals, but I want you to think a little deeper with these – not about the number you want to weigh so much, but about all the ways you’ll love yourself in the process.

How to use your weight loss affirmation cards:
There are so many ways to use these cards – I know you’ll be able to think of something creative, but I want to share how I use them and I initially thought others might use them.
First off, they are the perfect size for my printable weight loss vision board template – I created them to work together, and you can see some ideas for how I created mine below. You can also read the post about my weight loss vision board to get more inspiration.
You can also cut out your favorites and keep them in your planner or bullet journal. I like this idea because you can easily switch them out, but if you’re like me, and you’re in your planner every day, they’re going to get a lot of visibility – this is important if these affirmations are to be part of your new, healthier life.
Another idea – shuffle them up each morning, and randomly pick one to focus on for the day. You can add some of my other printable affirmation cards to the mix to keep it fresh, or just cycle through these.
Choose the one that speaks to you on the deepest level and stick it on your mirror in your bathroom.
Keep a couple in your purse or taped to your computer at work.
The possibilities are endless – use these however they feel right to you!
