I lost 10 pounds in one month. I know, I know. It’s hard to believe. I was skeptical that losing 10 pounds in only one month using the Law of Attraction was even possible. How could simply thinking about something make it happen? Pills, potions, fad diets, and exhausting workouts were all things I’d regarded as concrete and quantifiable. Therefore, somehow some way, sticking with them would work.

They didn’t work, though. Every morning I’d get up, look in the mirror and see the same overweight person I was ashamed of, the same rolls of fat that I loathed, and the same defeated expression. I had to face the facts: none of the weight loss methods I’d tried worked, so I decided to give this law of attraction thingy a whirl. Amazingly, the law of attraction for weight loss worked, and I shed 10 pounds in one month. Here’s what it is, how it helped me quickly shed weight, and how it can help you.


The LOA is a manifestation force that attracts whatever we focus upon into our lives. Positive attracts positive, and negative attracts negative. You attract conditions, people, and circumstances corresponding to your dominant thoughts and beliefs. The law of attraction is neutral. It doesn’t deem something good or bad or reward or punishment. It simply matches your vibration and reflects it to you.

My negative thoughts about my weight didn’t align with the positive result of losing it. When both aligned, the result was remarkable. These are my tips for the law of attraction for weight loss.


If you think, “I don’t want to think about my creepy ex-boyfriend anymore,” you’re focusing on not thinking about Mr. Wrong, and he remains front and center in your mind. That’s not conducive to releasing thoughts of a relationship that didn’t work and moving on.

Thinking “I hate my body” will elevate your weight because you’ve established the condition that you need to hate it. “I lose weight easily” or “My body is beautiful and slender” will be much more effective in aligning you with your goals.

Keep these thoughts in the present tense. Avoid some pie-in-the-sky versions such as “I will lose weight easily,” or “My body will be beautiful and slender.” Your weight will follow your state of mind. You’re not stuck with your current weight. You can create something different. The key is believing that you already have it.


Do you believe that weight loss requires suffering and sacrifice? Then that’s what you’ll find in your world. Believe that weight loss will come easily and naturally. Believe that you already think of yourself as slim. Align yourself with people who have a healthy body image. The law of attraction will transform your thoughts into reality.


I learned that I could move beyond feeling hopeless and helpless. I could be a conscious creator instead of a victim. I’m proof that these methods work. They’ll work for you too.

• Practice daily visualizations. Shakti Gawain, bestselling author of “Creative Visualization,” says, “Creative visualization is the technique of using your imagination to create what you want in your life.” Search the internet for “visualization.” You’ll find resources that can help you learn how to practice it. Visualization only takes a few minutes a day.

• When you eat, thank every morsel of food for making you slender.

• Use a vision board. You can create this collage online, or do it old school with cardboard or corkboard. Fill it with images of people who exemplify you at your ideal weight. You can also use images that express your joy at being that weight (for example, fireworks blazing or the sun bursting through clouds.) Look at it daily, and let it fill you with positive thoughts.


Your body is doing many amazing things right here, right now. It keeps your heart beating and your breath flowing, letting you enjoy the gifts of five beautiful senses. It purifies you by removing wastes and toxins. Your body is incredible! Don’t scorn it. Talk to it lovingly. Applaud your weight right now as though it’s already your ideal weight. Ready? Watch the LOA swing into action!

“Whether you think you can or whether you think you can’t,” said Henry Ford, “you’re right.” These wise words are the foundation of the law of attraction. I lost 10 pounds in a month because I told myself my body was gorgeous and slender on day one. Tell yourself the same after reading this article, and see what happens!
