How to Stay Motivated to Lose Weight



How to stay focused on Diet and Exercise

The problem in this society is that everyone always talks about the same things when it comes to losing weight.

You need to move more and eat less.

While that is not entirely true and is just a small part of it, mindset is even more important.

State of mind? Literally no one talks about this.

Everyone is discussing the latest weight loss drink that will make you lose weight overnight.

And basically just talking about one part of weight loss.

Your mindset is everything when it comes to succeeding in life and this also applies for weight loss.

 Everyone imagines a smooth journey from A to B with a happy end. This is not how life works and goes.

Your journey from A to B comes with ten if not 20 obstacles you need to overcome before you can conquer.

The truth? Most people imagine a smooth journey and when the first obstacle arises the quit.

People literally quit the first time they encounter difficulties and this is THE recipe for failure.

I have had my own portion of up and DOWNS, mainly downs.

Trust me you have to get through these down moments, these are completely natural and a part of life. 

You know you are living when you are having up and downs, always remember that.

If you life would be one flat line, that would not be living your own life. 

Everyone has got their fair share of bad and stressing moments.

The problem is that when we see successful people we only see the good part of their journey. 

Never their other “bad” part which consists of moments of depression, stress and literally no motivation to do a single thing.

However, depression is natural and the secret is to build a routine that you can perform everyday.

Every single day. Why?

Because everyone can eat healthy and work out when they are highly motivated.

That is not difficult.

What separates the winner from the crowd is to do the same when you are not motivated at all or are depressed.

To do the necessary when everyone else would quit right away. It is time to do the right thing.

Knowing this will set you up for success.

So imagine the hardships and the difficult moments when you are planning your next steps ahead.

In this way you will not quit at the first or second difficult moment, but you will prosper and thrive!

So practice this immediately and you've tackled for yourself the question: how to stay focused on diet and exercise!

Next important is your lifestyle, so follow me as we cover How to Get in Shape!

How to Get in Shape

In weight loss the most important part is your diet, I cover the foods and drinks in many of my articles so feel free to stroll through my blog.

75% of your weight loss efforts come from your daily diet and a lesser 25% from physical activity.

Exercise and workout is important for weight loss I am not saying it is not. All I am saying is that you should focus on your diet in the very first beginning.

Start focus completely on eating healthy.

Basically this comes down to removing all kinds of processed foods that contain either carbs or sugar and instead focus on eating only natural products.

Think of lean meat and fish that is full of protein and vegetables and fruit. We are talking about losing weight here and therefore this is necessary.

If you want to live a happy and healthy life, you can include carb and sugar in your daily life.

But in weight loss you need to be strict on yourself, everything else becomes much easier then.

Also remove all kinds of dairy products and drinks that contain sugar.

Dairy products are full of good vitamins and minerals but in weight loss they come with a lot of sugar and that is just the one thing we want to avoid.

Start drinking water and lots of it. You can also have green tea, black coffee and other detox drinks.

How to stay motivated to lose 20 lbs? Well practice the above and you are on your way to reach the top!

Healthy Lifestyle Habits

Experimenting is all part of life. Look what works for you and stick to that.

Remove everything that does not work for you. 

Do you need to hold yourself accountable for everything you eat?

Start with a daily diary where you write down all your foods so you have a clear overview.

Stick to the same eating times everyday and try to eat the same meals every day/week.

You will establish a routine, schedule that you find comfortable to live with.

This will make you more focused and you are less likely to cheat on your diet or have an unhealthy snack throughout the day.

Also set certain evenings apart for your physical activity, whether that be working out, walking, biking or swimming.

Make time slots for these things and do them.

So when Cindy asks you to go out for dinner or for a drink on Monday evening you can say you have to work out instead of sipping that calorie bomb of a gin tonic or a beer that will make you gain weight. 

Set goals for yourself and stick to these.
