Let’s do this together video – Your Future Self

Have you ever heard of channeling your future self to help you with your goals? I hadn’t before this last week.

My goal this year is to get rid of my excess fat and be in great physical health. And I’d like to do this before we go on vacation at the end of April. That’s plenty of time to reach this goal!

But this month was a bit of a struggle.

How did you do? I was following my plan just fine the first week. Then the wheels fell off the week of Valentine’s Day which snowballed into another week of not sticking to the plan.

So this last week I changed it up a bit. I channeled my future self; the one going on vacation. The one who is not hauling around an extra 15 pounds of fat. That girl who is fit and strong is the one I called upon to help me out.

It helped!

Have you ever tried it? Every time I had a choice of what to eat, I asked her to pick, instead of the one sitting right in front of the waffles with fresh fruit and maple syrup, or the cheeseburger and french fries.

She chose wisely. And I was rewarded. I am going to make my goal and win the diet bet I started on February 1st.

Let me know if you’ve ever tried it, and how it went for you.

Let’s do this together and keep our eyes on the goal.


  1. I love this! I think this will work! My future self is similar to yours…15 lbs lighter and healthier!
