Ep. 297: Your Mindset Isn’t Bad


When you start journaling for weight loss with the Two-Step Tool, it’s kind of shocking how many unhelpful thoughts you have, isn’t it? My friend, you’re not alone and your mindset isn’t bad. On this episode of the Get Your GOAL podcast, I’m sharing some inspiration to help you keep going when negativity threatens to bring you down.

The first time (or the first couple of times) you sit down to journal, you really don’t expect to hear anything too bad. But then you start writing and all of a sudden, it seems like everything in your head is negative!

Finding negativity and unhelpful thoughts while you journal is completely normal, and doesn’t mean anything about you. Your thoughts are simply a product of your experiences and social conditioning – they’re electrical impulses in your brain, not indications of your worth or your character.

But the discovery of these unhelpful thoughts can really throw you for a loop, and you might start to wonder…is your mindset BAD?

Definitely not, and finding your unhelpful thoughts presents an opportunity for growth and transformation. By acknowledging and accepting them, you create space to replace them with more supportive and empowering ones.

Remember, you don't have to force yourself to think positive thoughts! Your mindset will naturally move toward a healthy balance simply by uncovering and observing what you’re already thinking. And this episode of the Get Your GOAL podcast will help you make sense of the good and the bad of your weight loss mindset journey.
