3 Weight Loss Motivation Tips
Make smaller goals of your main goal and track your progress. Your long-term goal is so far away and taking so long to achieve results will be de-motivating for you! Break up goals into weeks and even days! This week I will exercise for half an hour 4 times instead of 3. Today I’ll eat healthy than I did yesterday! By breaking it up, it makes the longer-term goal seem more achievable!
The best way you can stay motivated to get results is to find someone in a similar position to you, and in a friendly way compete with each other. This can be the overall weight loss, but also competition for exercise drills and other weight loss activities. I stress the competition should be FRIENDLY as you should be supporting each other on the journey. Who said it only had to be one person? Make a team of weight loss buddies and either compete against each other individually or form smaller teams!
If you have no one to be competitive with, make the goal that you have inevitable. Basically you tell someone you trust that if you don’t achieve a certain goal, then you have to do something for that person that you would really hate doing! It doesn’t have to be over all weight loss. It could be a goal such as not eating junk food for a whole week. If you fail this, you are held accountable to your trusted person and have to carry out your hated task for them. This task could be wash their dog, pay them a certain amount of money you’d find it hard to part with or clean their toilet. You must hate it and definitely not want to do it! The inevitable task must be something you hate, or it defeats the purpose of motivating you to achieve the stated goal.
What is important is that you don’t lose the motivation to keep going. Achieving the small goals will make it seem like time is passing by much quicker. By making it more fun and by making goals more achievable in the short-term, long-term success is more likely to follow.
