Think About WHY
Write a list of at least 10 reasons why you want to lose or maintain your weight. If you’ve done this before, write a new list. Then pull out the previous one and compare the two. Any time you start to lose motivation, read your list and use it as an incentive to stick with your efforts.
Give It Attention
Saying, “One of these days, I’ll get going” doesn’t usually work. Whether you’re starting a new diet plan or returning to the gym, you have to stick with it, day after day, to see results. So lay out a solid plan, give it focus and attention, and then follow through with it.
Do It When You Don’t Feel Like It
When you don’t feel like working on a diet or exercise program, that’s usually when you need do it the most. So unless you’re physically ill, don’t let your feelings determine your actions. Invent new tricks, create new methods and stay on your program — even when you don’t feel like it.
