Top 5 Tips on how to Stay Motivated to lose weight

This guarantee’s 100% success rate, but it can be VERY difficult to do.

The key is to get to the point where you feel the same way about yourself as you do when you see your favorite person in the world.

When you love yourself:

There are certain foods you would never put into your body
You become amazing with stress management
Exercising and doing healthy activities become second nature
You are happier
You work hard to learn and grow, daily.

One thing I will always do is keep it real with you ladies, there are very few motivation tactics that can compare to a crush.

Imagine your crush came to you and told you “I really want to be with you but I need the girl I am with to possess certain qualities.”

You would then ask your crush “what are these qualities?”.



Keep this at the forefront of your mind and go about your normal day.

It becomes a lot harder to eat something unhealthy when you feel like that unhealthy thing is standing in the way of you and your crush.

Give it a try and let me know how it works out for you.

Purchase a small box that you can cut a hole into as well as put a lock on.

Cut a hole on the top of the box, place the lock on the box, and write your goal weight on it.

Give key or combination code to someone you truly trust that will not have access to the box.

Make a deal with them that when you reach your goal weight, they have to give you the key back.

Every time you receive money, place 10% of it or more into the box.

When you reach your goal you will be able to spend the money in the box on whatever you like!

It is truly an awesome reward for all of the hard work you have done.

I hear about many teens being unable to stay motivated to lose weight due to their parents and siblings.

Unfortunately, some of the people that have the ability to sabotage us the most is our family.

There are ways you can use them as motivators instead of hindrances.

Think about how much more they will respect you once they see you made a decision and stuck with it.

Imagine the look on their faces when they see you transforming into a healthier you.

Consider the possibility of being their inspiration and causing them to live a healthier lifestyle as well.

All of these factors can be huge motivators because these are the people you LOVE.

Let me know how you plan to use your family to motivate you.

Sometimes using these negative things in your life can motivate you to be great!

I do not want to spend much time on this because these people are truly not worth your time.

Some people actually become more motivated when they think about bullies so use them to motivate you.

Think about the look on their faces when they see you looking amazing.

How stupid they are going to feel when they can no longer call you fat, or unhealthy.

Facts hurt, opinions don’t! Turn their facts into lies and it becomes a lot easier to not let what they say bother you.
