Weight Loss Motivation

 

Even with the best program and all the support in the world, we all have days when we could use a little extra inspiration. Here are some things you can do to increase your motivation and guarantee your weight loss success.

 

1. Set Achievable Goals

Something I cannot stress enough is the importance of making changes that you will be able to stick with for the rest of your life. Begin by setting small achievable goals that aren’t tied to a number on a scale. For example, instead of making it your goal to lose 10 kilos, why not aim to drink eight glasses of water every day. Or plan to take the stairs each morning on your way to work. Another very helpful goal would be to listen to your hypnosis recordings at least four times a week. Whatever your goals, make sure they are very specific, clear and easy to attain.

 

2. Move More

Activity is crucial to health and when you are trying to lose weight it matters more than ever. But it is easy to get bored with the same old exercise routine day after day. Don’t get stuck in a rut! Try something new. Go for a walk, take a yoga class, or explore your neighborhood with a morning hike.

Exercise doesn’t have to be done in a gym, on a piece of equipment, or with an instructor. You just need to get moving!

 

3. Make Room for the New You

Make room for the new version of yourself that you are creating. Clean out any unhealthy food from the cupboards. Get rid of old clothes from the closet. Rearrange your environment to suit the new life you are building.

 

4.Don’t Give In to Guilt

No one is perfect and we all need a little chocolate every now and again. The only thing wrong with the occasional indulgence is the guilt you feel afterwards. There is no point making yourself feel so bad about that one splurge that it knocks you completely off track and you end up eating ten chocolates just to feel better. Naturally thin people don’t feel guilty when they have an occasional treat. They savour the moment and then get right back to eating healthy foods. Guilt isn’t useful – let it go!

 

Most importantly, stop ‘weighting’ for the life you want and start living your dreams
