Need Motivation For Weight Loss? Here Are Some Easy Ways

Margarita FolkPosted by

Finding the motivation for weight loss is a challenge many struggle with. If you're one of them, it's time to turn things around. The most important factor in motivation is discipline – not like an army drill sergeant yelling 2 inches from your face – but taking small steps and sticking with them to let the results keep you motivated. Here is the easiest way to accomplish this.

First, set a small goal. 5 pounds is a very realistic one to accomplish, and can be done in as little as two weeks. That's permanent loss, and it does not matter what your metabolism is like or whatever excuse you may have.

Now you have a goal. A realistic, motivating goal. If you want to lose that weight, you need a plan. It's hard to stay motivated without a plan. Find something you can stick to – You do not need to be a fitness guru or dietitian to figure something out.

For you to lose 5 pounds in two weeks, try eating 300 less calories per day (which is as little as a can of soda and a cookie), and walking for only 15 minutes. It does not matter if it's just around the block twice, do it. If you're having trouble even eating slightly less every day, try an appetite suppressant like Green Tea. Add a cup of green tea to every meal, and I guarantee you will not even miss that extra snack.

Now that you have a plan, make a promise to yourself that you're not going to fail. If you say "NO" to a few sugary, fatty options every day, and stick with some very light exercise, you will see results at the end of 2 weeks. Try your hardest to stick with it, and do not step on a scale til 14 days has passed.
