How to Get Motivated to Lose Weight

How to Get Motivated to Lose Weight

I know the hardest part is getting started. Preparing yourself will make it easier.

MENTAL CONTROL -You can control yourself by controlling your thoughts. Tell yourself that you can have whatever you want to eat, but you are choosing not to eat it right now. Tell yourself that you will exercise right now to get it done with for the day.

PREPARE YOUR HOME - Have lots of healthy, easy to eat snacks available. Such as blackberries, grapes, carrots, apples. Buy yourself a cute workout outfit, even if you are bulging out of it like I am, you will feel more empowered to workout with it on.

PREPARE YOUR BODY - Drink 5 or more cups of green tea a day to help you feel full and burn more calories.

BABY STEPS - It is fine to start out small. Even a 5 minute walk is a workout and you can gradually increase it and add more such as weight training.

MUSIC - Have music that you love to move to easily available so that you can turn it on instantly when you are ready to workout.

IF YOU HAVE A SETBACK - Don't let it set you back. Keep moving forward. That should be your mantra. Keep moving forward!
