We all need something or someone to motivate us to achieve our goals. The greatest realization of knowing that you are your own best and worst motivator rolled up in one package is the best gift one can have. If you believe that ‘you can’ then you can and if you believe that ‘you can’t’ then you cannot. This applies in weight loss motivation too. If you are planning to lose some weight it is important to look out for things that will motivate you. Here are some tips on how to go about your weight loss regime.
Look out for activities that will be interesting and fun. A good example of this activity is swimming. It is unlikely that you will get into a pool and find yourself alone. This means you will not only enjoy the company of other people, a chance of making new aquatic friends is high and finally you will burn some calories. This definitely will be a very good weight loss motivation. Having your room clean and organized is a good feeling to everyone. No one likes an untidy place, did you know doing house hold chores also helps you in losing some weight. A clean tidy room and loosing weight in the process is a win win situation.
There is no greater feeling than having good time with those close to you. Imagine from your usual morning ran and on getting into the house you find your spouse telling you how great you are looking within that short duration that you have been working on your weight. This is a good weight loss motivation that you can have. Therefore it is important to surround yourself with people who mean well to you.
Loosing weight is not a one day affair. Remember you did not gain this weight overnight. Therefore you really need to be patient about it. You do not want to end up frustrated because you want to lose weight within a short time. Remember you will notice the changes in your body within duration of about four weeks, it will take those close to you about eight weeks and your friends will take twelve weeks to notice.
Another great weight loss motivation to have is to avoid comparison. Guess you have heard of that old poem corrected on the road side-Desiderata. It states that do not compare you with others. So is the case with weight loss, do not compare yourself with others for there are those who will lose more weight than you within the same period of time. It is good to keep focus on your self.
