10 Ways to Stay Motivated for Weight Loss: Part

Welcome back to part 2.  We talked about 5 great factors in weight loss yesterday.  Let’s finish our list:

6.  Make the time for exercise.  No excuses.  Make the time for you!  It’s important.  Long term weight loss won’t happen on diet alone.

7. Find a quiet moment and evaluate what motivates you; personal satisfaction, looking good for a wedding, diagnosis of diabetes or high blood pressure, or giving yourself a goal/prize?  Write down and post your goals where you will see them.

8.* Don’t diet, think life change.  Clean eating is about creating new habits, not some crazy claim of dropping 20 lbs in 2 weeks.  That’s water weight (if you loose that) not permanent, healthy change.

9. Create a network for weight loss.  Many people are successful with Weight Watchers or working out at a gym because of the ‘buddy system’ of support that these programs put into place.

10. To begin your kickoff for change from processed fast foods, try a pre-packaged food program (such as Katie B- my fellow blogger did).  It can add structure to your choices (if you can afford it), or follow my blog (or Katie’s) for food management ideas. 

Make 1 change per week that you can follow.  Many small changes can equal RESULTS!
