    I have copied this from another thread, as I said not clever enought to do a link.

    It was written by good old "Icemoose" - hope he doesnt mind.

    Make sure that when talking about weight that you are very careful about the language you use.

    Your unconcious mind will listen to you chatting away and pick up on what you are saying.

    If you say "I have lost my car keys" then your mind starts searching for where it remembers you put them, it is more aware of your surroundings and spends processing time trying to find it.

    Therefore if you say you have "lost weight" you are doing the same thing, if you lose something then your mind wants to go and find it.

    So use terms like "I have banished 3 stone, trimmed off 5 pounds, permanently removed 8 kgs or burnt off 219 ounces"

    May seem small but if you go looking for lose weight then what if you bloody well find it!!
