Weight Loss Motivation Tips for Beginners
Weight loss motivation tips
are important like any other weight loss tip/program/method. You will have to deal with developing habits, and releasing some that we think won't do you good anymore. If you want to lose weight but can't seem to start, here are some motivation tips to achieve weight loss and look amazing.
I think the real question most want to ask is "how do I lose weight at my own terms?".We all know that success would require a good workout routine and a doable diet. It would depend highly on your weight loss motivation. Tips from this website are abundant!
Weight Loss Motivation Tip 1: Find Your Inspiration
If you are a celebrity, the main inspiration you would get to lose weight is getting paid while looking great. That is a pretty good reason to start watching what you eat and working out, it would give you a lot of opportunities for different roles.
But not all of us are given the chance to be one. So if you want to really lose weight, find your inspiration other than money.
Weight Loss Motivation Tip 2: The "So What" Technique
I have been using this technique time and time again while writing articles. The method is I ask a question first then follow it up with a question "so what?" then I analyze the answer. I keep on asking the same question until I get to the real reason for the question.
In losing weight, I ask myself this question. I often get to reasons like people admiring me because of a rockin' body or look good in nice clothes. That is quite shallow because it is more of a self-esteem problem and not enough drive.
I personally started studying fitness for myself, I want to have enough energy to swim, play and run outside with friends. I started young because I want to stay healthy for the rest of my life. I would not want to be in the hospital in my senior years. Lastly I want to share information while getting lean at the same time.
You want to go to the real reason why you want to lose weight, because it gives you the opportunity to try new things and most of the time it would be inconvenient at some point, that is okay. You are not just used to it because it is new, not because it is wrong or it doesn't work.
Weight Loss Motivation Tip 3: Find What Works for You
Remember the other thing people who want to start losing weight struggle about? Information. Information on losing weight are dime a plenty, but finding what can work for your schedule and accessibility can be a challenge to some. You might not always have access/time for gyms or to markets with specific foods because we live in different situations and places around the globe.
When you read a website, a tip or a magazine, ask your self:
- Can I do this consistently?
- Will it work for my schedule?
- Will I have access to ingredients (diet) and equipment
(workouts; if needed)
- Will it be fun to do?
There are many websites out there that promotes practical fitness (ahem) with the aim of achieving different fitness goals like weight loss while having fun! You can motivate yourself easy!
Weight Loss Motivation Tip 4: Less Procrastination = Easy Weight Loss
Resistance and cardiovascular training requires a lot of effort to get the most out of it, so why spend time using every inch of willpower just to go to the gym? With a wide range of information accessible, you can find routines and eating patterns that can work for you. This works on so many levels: Not only would you get the habit of staying active by choosing routines that is most convenient for you, but there would be less procrastination in your part.
Weight Loss Motivation Tip 5: Take a Step at a Time, There's No Need to Rush
Inspired by the song title of the same name, people who want to start to lose weight are sometimes more confused that driven, creating paralysis by analysis. Thinking they have to everything all at once to get there faster.
Create a weight loss habit (eating pattern or workout routine) one at a time, do it on a consistent basis while learning a new soon to be habit and your golden. You might get there even faster than you expect.
People who come up to me and ask how to lose weight are dime a dozen. It is harder to show them how exactly; so I ask them their weight loss motivation and give tips to start one step at a time.
Weight Loss Motivation Tip 6: Be Consistent on Your Chosen Workout Routine and Diet Pattern Regimen
I have been with many kinds of my friends working out and I notice those who really lose weight have the same thing in common: consistent and motivated. I feel and share their passion to get the body they want so I see them monitor their diet and are consistent with their workout routines. As a result, even for beginners, they have a better physique than few months ago and are consistently learning. I really admire such people.
You can get all the tips to lose weight and motivate yourself in this website that really works, but that is just half of the story, the rest falls in your hands. I have seen so many advanced and starters quit their workout routines and diet patterns. It is not the question of what works or what doesn't, it is more of motivating yourself to make it work based your schedule and lifestyle.
