Most of us want to feel good about ourselves, but just can’t. As someone who has had to endure a lot of criticism about my weight, I really understand what people struggling with weight gain are going through. You never feel that you’re pretty enough, and when none of the perfect clothes fit you at the mall, you somehow end up feeling even worse.
I decided that weight loss was the answer to my problems and I decided that I wanted to lose at least 30 pounds. We all have different ideas in terms of weight loss, but we all have a certain magic number in mind in terms of weight. I signed up at the local gym and started eating a healthier diet, but what I lacked the whole time was motivation.
You may think that the idea of losing weight and fitting into the clothes you want is motivation enough, but after sweating at the gym and feeling hungry all of the time, you kind of lose sight of these goals. That’s when I found out about something called a weight loss simulator.
What a weight loss simulator does is allow you to picture yourself online and simulate a scenario where you look your desired weight. In fact, you can even go beyond your goal and simulate yourself to appear slim. These websites give you a realistic simulation of what you could look like if you put the work in and the effort to lose those desired pounds.
There are many websites online that allow you to use a free simulator, so you really don’t have to worry about spending any money on seeing the future “you”. For example, the WeightMirror simulator is free to use and provides pretty accurate results in terms of what you can expect.
I think what people need the most when they want to lose weight is motivation to do so. It doesn’t matter if you have any other people supporting you in weight loss because at the end of the day, you’re alone with your feelings. I have had family members tell me I can do it, but when it came down to accompanying me to the gym or eating the foods that a healthy diet dictated me to, they left me alone pretty quickly.
It may sound harsh to say, but you really need to be the one willing to put the work in and give yourself reasons to move forward. I used a weight loss simulator to serve as my motivator, and you can too. I advise you to print out the ideal “you” and pin it in a place where you can see it every day.
The more you will look at your desired body, the more you can imagine yourself reaching your goal because it seems tangible. I think learning to visualize what you want and your willingness to work for it is the number one way to lead yourself to successful weight loss.
