Published on

Losing weight is easy — said no one ever! Perhaps you thought that if you exercise and eat better, the weight will just melt off and you’ll drop five pounds in a couple weeks.

5 Tips to Stay Motivated When You’re Not Losing Weight

  1. 1. T O S T A Y M O T I V A T E D W H E N Y O U ’ R E N O T L O S I N G W E I G H T 5 TIPS
  2. 2. BE PATIENT Weight loss takes time and worrying that you’re not getting good enough results is not going to make losing weight any easier. In fact, stressing over it will actually increase cortisol levels, causing you to gain weight. Just continue to track your calories, eat healthy, and exercise. w w w . r o b a r d . c o m
  3. 3. BE REALISTIC If you are expecting to lose 10 pounds in your first week, you may be setting yourself up for disappointment. Make sure your goals are attainable and realistic for YOU. Try starting with smaller goals and work up. Not sure how to goal set? Find a provider who can help you. w w w . r o b a r d . c o m
  4. 4. BE POSITIVE Always speak positive words to yourself to affirm that you are on the right path. Negativity becomes a downward spiral very quickly. Try to surround yourself with people who are supportive of your efforts and can lift you up when you're feeling down. Find online communities with other dieters to vent to and celebrate with. w w w . r o b a r d . c o m
  5. 5. REMEMBER YOUR WHY Why did you do this to begin with? Is it your health? Don't want to be tired all the time? Want to feel comfortable in a swimsuit? Want to be a good role model for your kids? Whatever your reasons are for losing weight, they are important. Remember why you made this commitment and allow that to drive you forward, even when it's hard. w w w . r o b a r d . c o m
  6. 6. CHALLENGE YOURSELF Maybe your progress is stalling because you're plateauing. Or maybe you are becoming bored with your routine. Find ways to change things up and make working out fun. Find a salsa class or try hot yoga. Go hard at every work out. Ran 20 minutes last week? Go for 25 minutes this week. Any way you can push yourself will support your progress. w w w . r o b a r d . c o m
