==== ====For fantastic weight loss tips - click herehttp://tinyurl.com/7922y6t==== ====If youve been trying to lose weight for some time you know how hard it can sometimes be tosimply get motivated to lose weight and more importantly to keep it off.Ive been there myself. For years I struggled with "trying to lose weight" and lack of motivation.I knew I needed to lose weight. I wanted to lose weight but after a long days work I simply wantedto relax on the couch and order some take out food.Getting some exercise or even having a healthy meal was just so hard to do. Id then feel guiltyand ashamed of myself for lacking any motivation or will-power.I struggled with how to get motivated to lose weight until I discovered a few simple ways that gotme off that couch, that stopped me from eating the wrong foods and got me to do the "simplethings" I needed to do to lose weight and keep it from coming back.1. I clearly identified "Why" I wanted to lose weight in the first place.So, to follow in my foot steps ask yourself "Why do I want to lose weight?" Then write down thereasons "Why" you want to lose weight on a piece of paper or better yet in a journal. Go...do itnow. And make this the first day that you absolutely start your weight loss process.1. Be very SPECIFIC about your reasons.2. Talk about it in the "present tense" like it is already happening.The more SPECIFIC you get, the more REAL it will be for YOU. Relate your reasons to yourpresent life rather than in the distant future. What do you want NOW and exactly why do you wantit?You should be able to PICTURE your reasons "Why?" visually.For example:Im losing weight so I can have a slimmer face, clear and glowing skin.Versus: I want to lose weight so I can look better.My husband or my boyfriend or my crush notice and complement me for how great I look.
Versus: I want people to notice and pay attention to me.Im more confident when I talk to my boss at work and I can see how he appreciates the greatwork Im doing.Versus: I can be more confident about myselfSee whats happening here?... The more SPECIFIC youre getting to "Why?" you want to loseweight and the more your reasons relate to your present life, the more you get motivated to loseweight and actually making it happen RIGHT NOW.2. Surround yourself with the right PEOPLE that keep you motivated to lose weight.Being around the right people all the time is critical to getting and staying motivated to lose weight.You know theres a saying that goes like.... "tell me who your 5 closest friends are and Ill tell youwho you are"Who you spend time with and surround yourself with makes a huge difference in the actions youtake and the habits you form.Just hang out with slim people long enough and youll POSITIVELY see the difference in yourself.If your 5 best friends are slim and fit and you surround yourself with slim people, then theres only1 of 2 things that can happen.1. They develop the habits to put on weight or 2. You get influenced to lose weight and becomemore "like them".You will subconsciously do the things you need to lose weight from just surrounding yourself withthe right people.Be around positive, reinforcing people. People that support and re-assure you. Stay away fromnegative people even if they are your current best friends and family!Negativity can pull you down. But positive vibrations from positive people will lift you up and keepyou on track and motivated to keep losing weight and staying healthy.Start today by associating yourself with the right people online. Your facebook friends, youtubefriends and even weight loss support groups and communities online will help you with how to getmotivated to lose weight and stay motivated.3. Put together your 2 "What If?...." sheets NOW.What if I do...? And What if I dont...? On your What if I do...? sheet write down at the top..."These are GREAT CHANGES that are going to happen to me starting 1) tomorrow, 2) within 2months and 3) in 1 to 2 years."
Then write down every single GOOD CHANGE you can imagine that will happen to you in theimmediate, short term and long term time frames....if you START TAKING ACTION NOW to loseweight.So for example:On the What if I do...? sheet you could be writing things like....- Tomorrow I will feel great about having started to take the actions to lose weight. I will stopfeeling guilty. Instead Im more empowered since Im on the right track.- Tomorrow I will simply wake up feeling better and more energetic since Im going to eat righttonight.- Within 2 months from today I will have lost XXX (enter your specific goal) pounds or kilos.- Within 2 months from today, my boyfriend/ my husband will be telling me how Im losing weightand looking great!- Within 1 year Ill be shopping for those new clothes that perfectly fit my hourglass figure.- Within 1 year, Ill be talking about my own weight loss success story and inspiring so manyothers to follow in my foot steps.- Within 1 year Ill have so much more energy to play with my kids, spend more quality time withmy husband and do so many more fun activities.Now on your 2nd sheet, write down all the THINGS you can imagine that will happen if you DONTTAKE ACTION NOW to lose weight...At the end of each sentence also write..... I will not let this happen.So for example:On the What if I dont...? sheet you could be writing things like....- Tomorrow I will feel guilty again for not doing anything to start losing weight. I will not feel goodknowing that Im not on the right track. I will not let this happen.- Tomorrow I will wake up feeling tired and lethargic again! Ill have a hard time getting out of bedand feel low energy. I will not let this happen.- In 2 months from today I will be the same. Worse, I could have gained more weight. Ill be scaredto stand on the scale and embarrassed with myself. I will not let this happen.- In 2 months from today my husband will still not see any changes in me and Ill be the sameweight and have the same body. Ill feel like Im letting him down and myself down again. I will not
let this happen.- In 1 years time Ill still be wearing clothes to "try" to hide my weight and appear thin. Ill be selfconscious about going in public and meeting new people because of my weight. I will not let thishappen.- In 1 years time my boyfriend may not find me physically attractive anymore and may want toleave me. I may have a hard time finding a "significant other" that thinks Im attractive and wants tobe with me. I will not let this happen.Now that youve written down all the things you can imagine, you have a vivid and clear picture forgetting motivated to lose weight. Be aware of your 2 "What If..." lists.
