Easy Ways to Stay on Track to Losing Weight
The absolute easiest way to stay on track is to never lose momentum! Here are some ways to help you NEVER lose momentum:
Divide Your Long-Term Goal into Smaller Ones
If you’re saying, “I’m going to have a fully toned body by summer,” you should pretty much give up now. You are going to want those results immediately and when they don’t happen immediately, you will give up. Break it down. Make monthly goals. How much will you have to lose in a month? When you discover that, calculate how much you will have to lose every week! Then, when you have all of those calculations done, break them down further. Decide how many days of the week you will exercise, or if you’re going to eat healthier. And again, break it down further. For exercising, plan what time you will work out, then, what type of exercises! Write all of this information down so you won’t forget it! If you’re wanting to eat healthier, plan your meals, make a grocery list, go buy everything, and make them all on one day so you’re able to quickly get them ready so you’re not tempted by unhealthy foods. Create your own map to success.
Watch Your Success Happen
Nothing is more motivating than watching your results occur! Get a weight scale, measure your waist, and watch your inner healthy body show! This will give you loads of morale on your battle against that unwanted fat and turn the tides in your favor.
Get Friends to Lose Weight With You
Maybe your momentum is starting to fade and you just need a little extra push that you can’t seem to give yourself. Your friends will be there to help. They can push you just far enough to get you moving again. Having others help you will pay off in the end.
Celebrate Your Weekly or Monthly Goals Reached
Wow! You’ve lost 5 pounds in a week! Time to celebrate, right? Well, don’t celebrate the wrong way. It’s okay to eat that delicious snack, but don’t over eat all of those delicious meals and gain all your weight back! Spoil yourself a little. Not a lot.
Look Over Past-Success
As you get used to living healthy, you may start to miss all of the unhealthy foods and make you want to go back to your old ways. Keep a log of all of your success and every time you start wanting all of the fries and chocolate, look back on that log and see what all you’ve done without them. Look and see that you’ve done yourself a great deal by not eating them.
