Listen...Your Motivation Will Come From Within
Are you sick and tired of saying "I'm starting next week"...are you sick and tired of saying "This time I'm serious"...have the people around you become tired of listening to you say "I'm starting a diet, and this time I'm for real".
If you're one of the millions who have become Sick and Tired of being Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired of lying to yourself and others, while feeling as though you're a failure then listen up, because this post is for YOU.
I have been there so Im speaking from experience. Photo is of me when I became sick and tired of being sick and tired and found my motivation from within.
Motivation comes from within. No one else can motivate you. They might inspire you or even push you but the motivation for weight loss has to come from within you otherwise you will not succeed.
Your weight loss motivation will develop throughout multiple phases. First, figure out your goal, plan of action, routine or the type of exercises you can do to help achieve your goals without causing injury. This is extremely important due to possible inactivity on your part as it was for me.
Once you start try to stick to it, remember doing a little each day will give you the confidence and bolster the motivation needed to succeed.
Next, you need to plan out pretty much every single meal you will eat initially for the upcoming weeks or months until your goal is achieved. Afterwards you need to consider how to maintain your new lifestyle (more to come on a future post). Planning your meals will make it easier to stick with eating healthier.
Challenge yourself to do this each and everyday, while saying to yourself "I'm A Finisher" and see how well it works. You might surprise yourself. Being prepared will also increase your motivation, as well as things become easier and the results begin to appear.
Soon you will be asking yourself what was holding you back for so long. Don't beat yourself up over this, just remember everything happens in it's own time, and now is YOUR TIME!!
Other things to keep the motivation flowing is to take before and after photos, or before and along the way progress shots. Document your progress and display it on the fridge or bathroom mirror as a constant reminder as to why you started this journey.
Keep things positive and talk to yourself everyday. Tell yourself you are well worth the new found discipline. Remind yourself daily that you are going to look and feel better than ever.
Visualize your success. Look in the mirror while closing your eyes and visualize what you will look like. Your mind is powerful...if you can dream it....you can become it!
Motivation does come from within but if there is someone who cares enough to be there for you then it helps in so many ways.
Do it for yourself, remember you're sick and tired of being sick and tired. Do not give yourself an out.
