​Stay Motivated during your Weight loss Journey

Weight loss is truly a journey. Not only does it physically challenge you to push yourself and do better but it also is a test of your patience and perseverance. Staying motivated through such challenges can be quite arduous a task. 

Following are 10 easy ways that will help you stay focused and motivated through this emotionally and physically perplexing process.  


Start with a Vision


It's always important to set a goal for yourself. Before you venture on this weight loss endeavor, it is important that you envision how you want to look. Having an idea about what areas of the body you want to work the most on will help you plan your realistic fitness routine accordingly.


Have Realistic Goals

Setting unattainable fitness goals is the worst thing you can do for yourself. If things do not go as planned, these goals will enable you to become frustrated rather than motivated. Start with a rough idea and then progress into doing better day by day.


Weigh Yourself Daily

The habit of weighing yourself everyday will allow you to keep check of your progress. Instead of weighing yourself every other week, by weighing yourself daily you can keep track of any fluctuations in weight and correlate them to your food intake. 


Maintain A Journal

We live busy lives and it's unrealistic to remember every detail of your weight loss journey. A journal will help you record every detail and allow you to map out your progress thereby motivating you to work harder.


Fitness Plan for You

Find yourself a weight loss and fitness plan that accommodates to your routine. Trying on a routine that switches up your regular routine can become somewhat of an inconvenience -and that is always demotivating. 


Celebrate Your Progress


Every little victory is a step in the right direction and every victory must be celebrated. Treat yourself because you just achieved something. This will enable you to do even better. 


Give Yourself some Space


Silencing your inner critic is the most important step you must take because many times our greatest enemy is out very own self. If there are any glitches along the road, don't spiral into an abyss of self-hate and criticism. Tomorrow will be a better day.


Goals Talk with your Fitness Pal


Surrounding yourself with individuals going through the same process and talking to them about your goals will not only help you stay motivated but also inspire you to do better. Discussion will allow you to broaden your horizons and possibly introduce you to new ideas.


Find Your Role Model

It's important to know who you look up to in terms of fitness. Steer clear of runway models because we all know that's not what weight loss should be about. Idolize an individual who is healthy and fit.


Stop Trying Too Hard

Trying to hard will exhaust you. Work to the best of your capabilities and work towards betterment. 

Weight loss can be a tiring, rocky road journey. And could take an infinite amount of time before you actually see the pin moving towards your desired stone. The progress can be slow and you need loads of motivation to stay on track. 

By applying these easy-to-do techniques, you will learn to love yourself and take one step at a time and you'll find achieving your weight loss success in real.
