Weight Loss Motivation: 9 Secret Ways To Keep At It
Weight loss programs keep us excited and motivated at the beginning but along the way, we tend to lose sight of why we started in the first place. This is why we need to find ways to keep motivated and not give up on our weight loss program. Here are 9 ways to try out:
#1 Group exercise
Take a class with friends and motivate each other to regularly attend. The support you get plus the guilt factor if you miss out are always highly motivating.
#2 Weigh yourself
Weigh yourself every morning or every week (or every month if you prefer) and keep track of your number. It’s easy to get discouraged but seeing your long-term progress will boost your motivation.
#3 The mirror
Mirror exposure therapy and pointing out the positive things you see can improve body image and keep you committed to eating right.
#4 A massage
Women who accept their bodies are more likely to have better eating habits – and getting a massage helps with that. By allowing yourself to be touched by another person, you can feel more comfortable with your body.
This is after all, the best exercise. Not only does the fun activity make you break a sweat but having an orgasm releases the same endorphins in your brain that eating chocolate does – except instead of gaining calories, you’re burning them!
#6 Lift the weight you’ve lost
Use dumbbells that correspond to the number of pounds you’ve shed off. The heavier the weights get will serve as a reminder that you would rather be lifting those to gain muscle than having that weight as part of your body.
#7 Have an outfit goal
Take out a piece of clothing you’ve been dying to fit back into. By displaying it, you’ll have a visual reminder of the goal you’re going after. You can also use to see how far you’ve come and how much more you need to go.
Listening to music while working out can keep you pumping and going with the beat. Energize yourself with fast, upbeat music to get through your weight loss program.
#9 Do it for others
By promising to join an athletic event to raise money for a charity, you’ll feel more motivated to keep at it knowing that if you stop, you’ll be letting down a lot of people who depended on you.
