Are You Motivated to Lose Weight?

How Can You Get Yourself Motivated?

Losing weight can be a challenge. It is not achieved overnight, thus you must stay motivated. There is no way to lose weight if you do not stay on the weight loss plan. So you need to keep your focus and motivation up. Try this: watch some fitness related television programs. Perhaps you feel that is out of the ordinary for you. Try it anyway. You never know, you may find some aspect of the program interesting. Another thing you could do is to get some fitness magazines and read them. Still another suggestion is that you rent or buy some exercise DVDs for home use. That way if you feel awkward out in public then no one has to see you as you workout or get motivated at home.

Think Fitness

Really get into fitness in every possible way. Make being a fit person part of your new identity. Fit people have a self identity as healthy. They concentrate on fitness because it is part of their body image. Really work on your body image as well. Think of yourself as very thin and attractive. Like yourself! Buy things and do nice things for yourself- it is very important. If you do not believe in yourself then who will?
